Dustin Keller 'iffy' for Week 16: Fantasy implications

Elsa

Dustin Keller is "iffy" to play in Week 16, according to Jets head coach Rex Ryan. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dustin Keller is "iffy" to play Week 16 for the New York Jets against the San Diego Chargers, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Keller has missed two straight games since suffering an ankle injury in Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Jeff Cumberland is starting in place of Keller, and has played well. He had four receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown during Monday night's loss to the Tennessee Titans. He saw a season-high nine targets.

Fantasy Impact: Owners will want to keep a sharp eye on practice reports this week, though Keller's fantasy status has to be considered questionable at best. He has yet to practice since sustaining the injury, and with the Jets' season essentially over, there is no reason to rush the tight end back to the field. On top of which, Cumberland has proven to be a suitable fill-in.
