Dustin Keller's availability for the Jets' Week 5 matchup against the Texans is still uncertain, head coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dustin Keller's status for the New York Jets' Week 5 matchup against the Houston Texans is still uncertain, head coach Rex Ryan told reporters Wednesday. Keller will miss practice Wednesday as he continues his slow recovery from a hamstring injury suffered during preseason.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets play on Monday night, giving the tight end another day to rest up. The downside is that if you plan on using Keller as your starter, you risk having him ruled out at game-time long after every other potential replacement has played. Be sure to check back with injury reports Thursday and Friday to get a better idea of Keller's status. By now you should have figured out a contingency plan, anyway.
