Stephen Hill practices Wednesday, inching closer to return for fantasy owners

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets wide receiver was back at practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill (knee) is scheduled to practice on Wednesday, according to a report by ESPN's Rich Cimini. Hill hasn't played since getting hurt against the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Most, if not all, of the Jets' receiving corps is hard to trust in terms of fantasy production. That includes Hill. The team is simply in a rebuilding phase, which really doesn't work in fantasy football as most leagues are about the here and now.

It's really unfortunate. At times this year, quarterback Geno Smith put together some really solid efforts that had Jets fans and fantasy owners alike encouraged. Hill could have been a big part of that, especially with teammates Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley dealing with injuries of their own throughout the season.

That's the problem with Hill. He just can't seem to stay healthy long enough to get in a groove. There's no telling whether or not he'll play this Sunday, so fantasy owners should look elsewhere.
