Dolphins WRs Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson expected to be healthy in time for June minicamp

Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post wrote Friday that Dolphins wide receivers Brian Hartline @brianhartline and Brandon Gibson @Bgibson04 are expected to have fully recovered from their knee injuries by the time the team opens its veterans' minicamp in June.
Gibson has a tougher road back than Hartline. Gibson tore the patellar tendon in his left knee in October. Hartline suffered a torn left PCL in the final week of the 2013 regular season, but his injury didn't even require surgery.

Fantasy Analysis:

Both players need to get healthy and get ready to perform their best, because 2014 could be a critical year for their futures. The Dolphins are expected to take a wide receiver in the first few rounds of May's draft. That rookie will most likely compete with Gibson and others to be Miami's No. 3 wide receiver. Hartline is probably locked in as a Week 1 starter, but the Dolphins can save a significant amount of money by cutting him after this season. Even with that kind of motivation, the odds are heavy that Gibson and Hartline will be either left on the waiver wire or simply used as a bye-week replacement in your league. I'm more intrigued to see which newbie the Dolphins bring into this group.
