Brandon Gibson leads Rams in receiving Sunday: Fantasy implications

Jeff Curry-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Brandon Gibson led the St. Louis Rams in receiving Sunday, catching seven passes for 91 yards. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Gibson had seven receptions for 91 yards during the St. Louis Rams' loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Gibson led the team in targets with nine, and proved to be the biggest beneficiary in the passing game with Danny Amendola out.

Gibson's receptions, yards and targets were all season highs for the wideout. He now has 20 receptions for 275 yards and two touchdowns on the season. Chris Givens was the team's second-leading receiver with three receptions for 85 yards on the day.

Fantasy Impact: Gibson took immediate advantage of Amendola's serious shoulder injury. With Amendola out at least another month, Gibson should be a popular target on waiver wires this week in fantasy leagues.

Within a limited offense, Gibson appears to be a WR2 at best in standard fantasy formats. More likely, he will be among your options for the Flex spot going forward. Still, that is more than enough value to help decide a fantasy matchup or two.
