Dustin Keller is out. We break down the fantasy implications.

After only practicing in a limited capacity on Wednesday, Dustin Keller (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game with the Steelers.

Analysis: Keller would have been a big help to the Jets to help open up the middle of the field. Jeff Cumberland will step and get most of the snaps. He had three catches for 33 yards in Week 1 and night be a sneaky play for owners in deep, two-tight end leagues. The Jets won't have the same success against the Steelers as they did with the Bills, but Keller's absence should increase the value of Santonio Holmes and waiver-wire wonder Stephen Hill.
