Stephen Hill suffered a calf injury in practice Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Just a few hours after the New York Jets named Stephen Hill their No. 2 starting wideout, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports that he was placed on the practice report with a calf injury.

Fantasy Impact: The second-round rookie was extremely raw in the preseason, but the Jets are so thin at WR he more or less won the job by default. It's obviously too early to gauge how serious this injury is, and he still got a full practice in, but this is just more bad news for New York's struggling offense. We can't recommend starting any of their skill position players against Buffalo this week.
