Jets QB Mark Sanchez has eight touchdown passes this season — with no interceptions, either. And if I had to fashion a guess, I would say that TE Dustin Keller has all eight of those touchdown receptions.
Well, it’s close, Keller has five touchdown receptions this season. Which is an incredible number.
There are a couple of things at work here. Keller is obviously one of the top fantasy tight ends. But hey, if you do not have him already, you are sunk because he is not available in your league. Sure, go ahead and look, but I can nearly guarantee you that he is not available.
But what about Sanchez becoming a viable fantasy option? That is something nobody would have thought following his opening game clunker against the Ravens. Now Sanchez could be a spot-starter for those of you on bye weeks — like the guys who started him this week as a replacement to Tony Romo.
And here is something else to consider, WR Santonio Holmes is back from suspension next week, too. Which leads me to another point, that Sanchez has to at least look for Holmes in the coming weeks for those of us who have been diligently storing him on the fantasy bench until this point.
