Jahmyr Gibbs In Line For Big Workload if Montgomery Misses Week 4

Wednesday, September 27, 4:40 PM

Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs handled 18 touches last week in the absence of David Montgomery (thigh). He turned 17 carries into 80 yards and one reception into two yards. It wasn't a massive fantasy performance, but it was promising to see him operate as a workhorse, despite speculation that Craig Reynolds could eat into his workload significantly. If Montgomery, who is questionable against the Green Packers, misses Week 4, Gibbs is a must-start in all formats based on his projected touch total. The Packers have allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to running back thus far, so Gibbs would have RB1 upside. If Montgomery plays and sees a normal workload, Gibbs becomes a risky flex option once again.

James Cook Pushes For Red-Zone Work In Another Strong Day

Monday, September 25, 12:47 AM

Buffalo Bills running back James Cook took 15 carries for 98 yards with two catches (three targets) for an additional 14 yards in Week 3's easy 37-3 win over the Washington Commanders. The 24-year-old was quiet early on, registering only 28 yards on eight first-half touches, but positive game script may have aided his path following the first half. Cook produced a few 10-yard gains thereafter, spearheading an effective day with a 34-yarder to get inside Washington's five-yard line before veteran power back Latavius Murray eventually reaped the benefits on a touchdown plunge. Though, Cook was given a chance to cash it in himself on the preceding play, and the 2022 second-rounder saw a bit more work in the red zone on Sunday than he had up until this point. Perhaps finally earning some more high-value touches, Cook will be an RB2 with plenty of upside in Buffalo's Week 4 home battle with fellow AFC heavyweight Miami Dolphins.
