Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (knee) participated in full-squad drills on the 1st day of the team's minicamp.  He had been limited to individual works in OTAs.  Gibson guaranteed earlier this offseason that he'd be ready for Week 1, and it looks like he'll make good on that promise.  He'll need to fend off Rishard Matthews and rookie Jarvis Landry for slot duties, though.  The winner of that battle will only be a low-upside bench stash for fantasy teams.

Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (Achilles) has been a limited participant in the beginning of OTAs.  It's actually more than we expected him to be doing.  Gibson guaranteed last month that he'd be ready for Week 1, and it looks like he's on track.  He'll need to battle to retain his #3 WR role, though.  Miami got solid play from WR Rishard Matthews in Gibson's place last year and added 2nd-round rookie WR Jarvis Landry.  None of those guys are likely to be fantasy factors in 2014.

Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson recently told ESPN that he "definitely" expects to be ready for the season opener.  Gibson went down with a torn patellar tendon in Week 8.  He recently resumed "light jogging" but is unlikely to do anything in OTAs.  We'll see if Gibson can get on the field in training camp.  Due $3.7 million this season, he's been rumored as a potential release candidate.  He racked up 29 catches in his 6 full games last year, but replacement Rishard Matthews fared well in Gibson's absence.  Neither guy is likely to be a fantasy asset in 2014.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson is done for the year after suffering a torn patellar tendon in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.  The injury also puts his availability for the start of the 2014 season in doubt.  Gibson was quietly on pace for a 69-catch campaign.  Rishard Matthews is expected to step in as Miami's #3 WR but isn't worth adding in fantasy.

Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson injured his left knee in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Patriots.  He couldn't put any weight on the leg and was carted back to the locker room.  It's a significant loss for Miami's offense.  Gibson had been an efficient chain-mover and also scored his 3rd TD in the past 2 games before leaving.

Update: The Fins believe Gibson's injury is season-ending.

Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (hip) is listed as questionable on the Week 7 injury report.  The slot man only carries deep league value.  But he is a bit of a sleeper this week against a leaky Buffalo secondary.  Gibson has quietly posted 70+ yards in 3 of 5 games this season.

The Dolphins continue to add offense, agreeing to terms with WR Brandon Gibson.  The former Ram has never topped 53 catches or 691 yards in a season, despite ample opportunity in St. Louis.  He's still only 25, so there's room for growth.  But we've never viewed Gibson as more than a league-average WR.  Some might see him as a threat to Davone Bess' #3 WR job, but we think Gibson will slot in at #4 on Miami's depth chart.  He's unlikely to be a fantasy factor.

Rams WR Brandon Gibson is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Cowboys.  The acquisition of WR Brandon Lloyd has pushed Gibson off the fantasy radar.  Lloyd and Danario Alexander will start out wide for St. Louis.

Rams WR Brandon Gibson hauled in an 83-yard TD on the Rams' first play of Saturday night's preseason game against the Titans.  That was his only catch of the game, but it displayed big-play ability that this St. Louis passing game needs.  Gibson has reportedly had an excellent training camp and appears to have locked-down a starting spot.  The Rams still figure to use a rotation at WR though, so Gibson is just a bench guy in fantasy.

Rams WR Brandon Gibson has been running with the 1st-team offense since training camp started.  Gibson is entering his 3rd NFL season and quietly racked up 53 catches for 620 yards last year.  St. Louis' WR situation is still fluid, with Gibson, Mike Sims-Walker, Danny Amendola, Danario Alexander, Donnie Avery, Mardy Gilyard, Austin Pettis, and Greg Salas all fighting for snaps.  We currently project MSW and Amendola to be the Rams' most productive WRs, but Gibson is worth monitoring.

Rookie WR Brandon Gibson is expected to make his Rams debut Sunday against the Lions.  He was acquired from the Eagles in exchange for LB Will Witherspoon.  The Washington St. product has the size (6'1, 206 lbs) and speed (4.4) to make an impact at the NFL level.  He's not worth a roster spot at this point, but keep an eye on him over the next few weeks, especially those of you in dynasty leagues.  He could eventually take over the team's #2 WR spot.
