Fantasy Football Tips: Brandon Gibson And Danny Amendola

Pity the fantasy football player in the proverbial deep league that I hear so much about but would never, ever play—sitting in a dark room off some back-alley where the fantasy junkies run, listening for tips about St. Louis Rams wide receivers, wondering whether the real answer to his problem is Danny Amendola or Brandon Gibson. Up until recently I was inclined to say that Brandon Gibson was more a problem than an answer to any of them, but Turf Show Times suggests he might finally have emerged as a credible threat in Sam Bradford's mostly uncredible corps.

What this means, though, is that Gibson and Amendola, long-time de facto number one, are each now completely untouchable, even for the deepest of deep-leaguer. Danny Amendola's value was that Sam Bradford threw to him 100 times a game, for about six yards a reception. (These are inexact counts.) If the Rams have to move away from that game plan due to other teams keying on Amendola (it took them this long?) you're left with a less valuable Amendola and Brandon Gibson.
