Darrelle Revis has been cleared for contact and is expected to play Sunday when the Jets take on the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darrelle Revis has been cleared for contact, and will practice fully Thursday in preparation for Sunday's Week 3 game between the New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Revis suffered a concussion in the Jets' season opener against the Buffalo Bills, and has since been trying to pass testing in order to get back on the field.

Fantasy Impact: Revis is the league's premier shutdown cornerback, so you can bet that the Jets are excited about his return. The Jets weren't likely to be too worried about the Ryan Tannehill completing passes, but with Revis on the field they can focus even more attention to slowing down Reggie Bush and the Dolphins' running attack. While the Jets are a good fantasy option this week as a team defense, Revis remains a shaky IDP. He doesn't produce much in terms of tackles, so you'll have to hope for an interception or two if he's on your fantasy squad.
