Dustin Keller misses Wednesday's practice, fantasy value on the low side

US PRESSWIRE

New York Jets TE Dustin Keller (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller missed practice on Wednesday, via Conor Orr. Keller sustained an ankle injury, which the team insists is not a serious sprain.

However, missing Wednesday's practice is never a good way to start the week. While he is on track to miss Sunday's game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, he could return on Thursday or Friday.

Fantasy Analysis: Keller is not the best fantasy option when healthy. Something like an ankle injury would affect the performance of a TE, so be wary of starting Keller on Sunday even if he's active.

Now would be the time to start looking for other options at the position, like Jared Cook or Scott Chandler. Keller owners would be wise to outsource another TE in Week 14.
