This would be a code red for Jahmyr Gibbs owners, especially those who were counting on more than one game of him leading the backfield like he did in Week 3. While this was always a possibility, it looks like Gibbs could be relegated once again to complementary role with David Montgomery, who was dominating the snap share in the Lions backfield in Week 1 and Week 2 before his injury. If Montgomery is good to go, he would become a mid-low RB2 or solid flex play against a Packers defense allowing the 9th most fantasy points to the position through three weeks. As for Gibbs, there’s a chance that his usage continues to trend in the right direction, but any movement towards dominating the backfield will be gradual with Montgomery healthy and not an overnight phenomenon.
