Detroit gives us the 1st shocker of the Draft! Lions draft RB Jahmyr Gibbs

Jahmyr Gibbs, RB from the University of Alabama, is selected by the Detroit Lions as the 12th pick of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Insight

The Lions must be planning on running a pistol offense with a backfield of D'Andre Swift, David Montgomery, and now Jahmyr Gibbs. That's a joke as the more likely option is the Lions plan on trading or releasing D'Andre Swift. Gibbs is the best receiving threat of the top 3 RBs currently on the roster, so I would expect him to have the 3rd down and 2-minute offense role at a minimum to begin the year. He can also be a part time WR for at least the first 6 games while Jameson WIlliams serves his suspension. I anticipate him to be a low level RB3 in my initial rankings if the Lions keep all three of Gibbs, Montgomery, and Swift.
