New York Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill was limited in practice all week and listed as probable on Friday's injury report. He expects to play this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, in a game where the Jets really need the services of their first-round wideout.
The Jets' season has quickly snowballed into an injury-prone, offensively-inefficient nightmare. Gang Green is in desperate need of offensive productivity, and for someone to emerge in the absence of Santonio Holmes.
Fantasy Analysis: Stephen Hill has quickly become a curious fantasy player. His stock could either be on a rapid ascension in the wake of Holmes' injury, or it could be lifeless in this struggling Jets offense. For those fantasy owners that have Hill, they should hang on to him until they figure out which direction he is going in.
If Hill and Sanchez could establish some sort of rapport, it would bode well for the receiver's fantasy value. Just look at Brian Hartline in Miami with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Hill may be the last remaining hope the Jets have on offense, so they may be counting on him for big-time production. Look for his targets to go up immediately against the Colts in Week 6.
