Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that he assumes Dustin Keller will play Week 4 against the 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that he assumes Dustin Keller will suit up Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. Keller hasn't played since Week 1 while dealing with a nagging hamstring injury suffered in the preseason.

Fantasy Impact: Keller had just one catch in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, so it is still unclear what his role will be under offensive coordinator Tony Sparano going forward with the Jets. If Mark Sanchez/Tim Tebow continue to struggle at quarterback, Keller could see a lot of targets as a safety valve. Don't expect a lot of targets in the red zone until the Jets start moving the ball better, however.
