Stephen Hill expected to play Week 6, according to Rex Ryan: Fantasy implications

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan expects Stephen Hill to play this week against the Indianapolis Colts coming off a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stephen Hill is expected to play in Week 6 when the New York Jets take on the Indianapolis Colts, head coach Rex Ryan told reporters Thursday. Hill missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury, but was able to return to practice Wednesday on a limited basis.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets are desperate for bodies at wide receiver with Santonio Holmes done for the season and Clyde Gates potentially out against the Colts due to a shoulder injury. Hill is ostensibly now the Jets' top wideout, but he has caught passes in just one of the three games he has appeared in as a rookie. He is still raw, and considering Mark Sanchez' struggles under center you are better off looking elsewhere for fantasy production. Teammate Jeremy Kerley is probable a safer option this week.
