Dustin Keller - TE - Jets Dustin Keller (hamstring) expects to return for Week 6.
Keller has been dogged by this hamstring issue since the preseason and has missed four of the Jets' five games. Although he's optimistic about playing against the Colts, we'd make him get through a full week of practice first. Keller has had a couple setbacks when returning to activity.

I think there could be some good "volume-based" production here once Keller is back and healthy. It would be kind of a speculative add I admit, but for those owners who have been shuffling the TE2's around trying to find a consistent option... he could be a nice pickup. I obviously wouldn't start him until he proves he is past the hamstring injuries.
The Jet's offense is desperate for weapons right now and Sanchez loves throwing to this guy. Keller is looking to salvage his season in a contract year. In time...I think he could be more consistent and reliable than a lot of the TE's out there on starting fantasy rosters. The best thing about getting him now is that you probably don't even have to use a waiver priority on him. I'd imagine that he may be available as a FA later this week in a good amount of leagues.
