Clyde Gates was held out of practice again Wednesday as he recovers from a shoulder injury suffered in Week 5. We break down the fantasy implications.

Clyde Gates was held out of New York Jets practice Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. Gates suffered a shoulder injury in Week 5 against the Houston Texans, and has yet to practice with the Jets since.

While Gates has just two catches on the season, he provides a decimated Jets' receiving corps with some much-needed depth. With Santonio Holmes lost for the season, Jeremy Kerley now tops the depth chart, followed by Stephen Hill and Chaz Schilens.

Fantasy Impact: Gates had an opportunity to produce with Holmes on the shelf, but his injury stemmed any positive momentum. He could lose his spot on the depth chart as a result. In any case, there is no proof he would have developed into much of a fantasy option.

The Jets will go with a make-shift receiving corps once again when they take on the New England Patriots on Sunday. Kerley remains the only viable fantasy option as Mark Sanchez continues to struggle under center.
