New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow is officially active for Thursday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons. Winslow did not practice on Saturday and was listed as questionable with a knee injury, but he will be suiting up this week.
Winslow has been hot-and-cold this season. In the season opener, he grabbed seven catches for 79 yards and a touchdown, and added six catches for 73 yards in last week's loss to the Tennessee Titans. Outside of those two games, he has only three catches for 16 yards. Despite the inconsistency, he's still the Jets' leading pass catcher.
Fantasy impact: Santonio Holmes is inactive with a hamstring injury and Stephen Hill is recovering from a concussion, so Winslow may end up being Geno Smith's top target this week. It's hard to trust him as a TE1 in most fantasy formats, but he has a shot to produce against Atlanta's injury-ravaged defense. He's worth rolling the dice on this week.
