Brandon Gibson returns to Rams practice, maintains Week 8 fantasy value

David Welker

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Brandon Gibson returned to practice on Thursday, a day after sitting out because of illness. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Brandon Gibson was back on the practice field on Thursday, a day after sitting out because of an illness. Gibson was a full participant on Thursday.

Gibson is coming off a five-catch, 60-yard effort last week against the Green Bay Packers and has turned into one of the team's most consistent receivers in the wake of Danny Amendola's shoulder injury. Gibson and the Rams are preparing to face the New England Patriots on Sunday in London.

Fantasy Impact: Gibson is a decent player to consider on Sunday as a No. 3 wide receiver or flex play against the Patriots. The Rams have been spreading the ball around without Amendola and Gibson has had two straight solid fantasy weeks.

Amendola returned to practice on a limited basis this week but that will not affect Gibson's fantasy value against New England.
