Dustin Keller injury update: Probable and a gamble in fantasy leagues

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Dustin Keller is probable for Week 6 against the Colts. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Keller has been struggling with a lingering hamstring issue since the preseason, but he finally made good progress this week, getting limited practice all three days.

Keller hasn't been active since Week 1, where he had only one catch for seven yards.

Fantasy Impact: The Jets have been badly depleted by injuries at wide receiver, so they need Keller back in the worst way. Keller has been a solid playmaker for New York the past couple seasons, hiding most of Mark Sanchez's mistakes as a safety valve. But the offense is in complete shambles now, with fans clamoring for Tim Tebow, so it's hard to tell what kind of role he will play this week.

If Keller is active, the Colts' secondary is bad enough that even Sanchez could pick them apart, so fantasy owners can use him as a TE2, but hamstrings can flare up any moment, so keep an eye on the Sunday inactive reports.
