Jason Avant injury update: probable but low fantasy value

Jason Avant is probable for Week 5 against the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jason Avant (wrist) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had a full week of practice and should be able to play this week.

Fantasy Impact: With Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson slowed by injuries in recent weeks, Avant was expected to get a bigger role than usual in the offense. That hasn't transpired, however, as he has only 11 catches for 128 yards and zero TDs on the season. With Maclin and Jackson both getting back to 100% now, Avant will probably go back to being the 3rd or 4th option in Philly's passing offense. He's not a fantasy option against the Steelers and should be sitting on the waiver wire in most leagues.
