Dustin Keller is unlikely to play Sunday's game between the Jets and 49ers with a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dustin Keller is likely out for Sunday's game between the New York Jets and the San Francisco 49ers, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. Keller is dealing with a nagging hamstring injury that has limited him since preseason. He was expected to play after practicing this past week, albeit on a limited basis.

Fantasy Impact: For every step forward, Keller seems to take at least one more step back in his recovery. We'll now have to look to Week 5 to see the tight end back on the field, with likely the same "will he, won't he" reports coming out of practice. Playing within a struggling offense, Keller isn't a great starting fantasy option even at 100 percent.
