Stephen Hill is listed as probable on the New York Jets injury report with a calf injury. We break down the fantasy implications.
Stephen Hill is listed as probable on the New York Jets injury report with a calf injury. Hill, a second round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, will play barring an unforeseen setback. He was a full participant in practice on both Thursday and Friday. Santonio Holmes was also listed as probable, while Jets' tight end Dustin Keller is questionable for Sunday's game. The Jets are up against the Buffalo Bills to kickoff their 2012 season.
Fantasy Impact: Stephen Hill's injury status does not hurt his fantasy value, but his quarterback situation definitely does. Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow bring down the value of this passing attack, and Stephen Hill is playing in his first ever NFL game.
