Dustin Keller won't practice Thursday, casting doubt on fantasy status

Jim Rogash

Dustin Keller won't practice Thursday for the Jets due to an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dustin Keller won't practice for the New York Jets on Thursday, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Keller missed last week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to an ankle injury.

Keller has 28 receptions for 317 yards and two touchdowns on the year. The Jets take on the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Keller hasn't been ruled out for Monday's game by any stretch, but the fact that he is playing in the last game of the week makes him a risky fantasy option to put in your lineup. You will have to pay close attention to injury reports this week. If it becomes clear that Keller is going to be a game-time decision, you would be better off leaving him on the bench and finding another tight end. He isn't a good enough fantasy prospect to risk a potential zero in the midst of your lineup.
