Detroit Lions rookie running back Jahmyr Gibbs returned to practice this week, but he has been ruled out for the team's Week 6 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Gibbs also sat out the team’s Week 5 win over the Carolina Panthers with a hamstring injury. 

David Montgomery, who has been the team’s lead back this season, should see an increased role with Gibbs out.

With Gibbs out again, turn to Montgomery in the prop market.

Montgomery has dominated goal-line touches this season and has thrived with them. 

The veteran running back has found the end zone in all four of the games he’s played in this season, totaling six scores in those matchups. 

His last two games have been his best, as he put up 230 yards and four scores on 51 carries in those matchups. 

It’s hard to fade him in this spot with Gibbs ailing, especially since the Bucs are allowing 4.1 yards per carry so far this season.
