|Hartline is coming off a career year in which he accumulated 74 receptions for 1,083 yards and a touchdown on a whopping 131 targets, while assuming the lead receiver role on a struggling Dolphins offense. The most important statistic above is the 131 targets. With Mike Wallace now in Miami, Hartline won't come close to approaching that. Hartline has decent size and solid speed but the odds are strong that he will never approach his 2012 production over the balance of his career. Fantasy-wise, he needs to step up his touchdown production to be useful in 2013, but he has just six scores during his three years in the league, and the addition of tight end Dustin Keller isn't going to help him in getting more red zone targets. Consider him an upper tier WR4 in 2013.
| Brandon Gibson out for season -- Mon Oct 28 3:50 pm --|
Torn patella tendon
|Brandon Gibson left the field on a cart Sunday after suffering a first-half knee injury against the New England Patriots. NFL Media's Albert Breer reports the initial diagnosis for Gibson is that his knee injury likely is season-ending, according to a source briefed on his injury. The injury is believed to be a torn patella tendon.
Gibson was injured coming down on his left knee after attempting to make a leaping catch on a high Ryan Tannehill pass. He was limping badly as he came off the field.
FF Today's Take: Gibson had actually emerged as a reliable slot option for Ryan Tannehill, so his loss will be an underrated loss for the Dolphins. Rishard Matthews saw a season-high 37 snaps in his absence and needs to be on the radar for owners in deeper leagues. However, it is just as likely that Gibson's absence means more targets for Charles Clay and Brian Hartline, who make most of their catches in the short-to-intermediate passing game.
