Jets TE Dustin Keller may not even need MRI on injured hamstring

It looked ugly when New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller @DUSTINKELLER81 went down without contact on the first play of Sunday's preseason game versus the Panthers, holding on to his right knee. He was diagnosed with a hamstring injury, but it doesn't seem like anything close to severe. In fact, Keller told ESPN New York that he "should be fine for the season opener" and may not even undergo an MRI on the muscle because "it's not that bad," Keller said.

Fantasy Analysis:

That's a relief for the Jets, who saw another tight end, Josh Baker, tear an ACL in the same game. So fortunately, Keller will most likely play Week 1. Unfortuantely for Keller, still plays for the Jets. Specifically, he is forced to catch passes from either Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow. That duo is going to make any Jets receiver not named Santonio Holmes completely off limits for me, and I'm not a fan of his, either. Keller is FFToolbox's No. 15 TE. I think even that's too high.
