|After three years in the league, the knock on Hartline is that he is a one-trick pony. He has a gaudy career yards per reception average of 15.3 but has never topped 615 receiving yards or three touchdowns in a season. Basically, he gets open on deep passes but not as frequently as needed to be a true starting wide receiver. On the minus side of the ledger, Hartline isnít a great route runner and has decent but not outstanding size so he is a questionable fit in the Dolphins new west coast offense. However, a position in the starting line-up seems almost certain, just donít bother adding him to your roster. With just four double-digit point performances in 44 career games, Hartline is a waiver wire option and bye week filler if you are desperate.
| 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.
