Is this a PPR league?

It is pretty close, but I'm giving the edge to Brandon Gibson here. Slightly better matchup and hes coming off of a 3/50 afternoon on 5 targets. That target total should go up with Danny Amendola out. A lack of Steven Jackson may force the Rams to throw the ball more which could benefit Gibson as well.

Just a little more familiarity with his QB, a little better match up, and a little better opportunity combines to give a slight edge to Gibson. Unfortunately, its purely speculative and deeper roster moves like this tend to be a crapshoot. Gibson, IMO, gives you the best shot.

Good luck.

Another vote for Gibson. Bradford isn't going to be as bad as he showed Week 1 and he's going to need targets. Like Gibson not only for this week but good speculative hold for the future too.

It is not PPR. Also, I've been reading that Greg Salas will play the slot for STL so is he someone to consider?
