Dustin Keller Should Remain Mark Sanchez's First Look

Dustin Keller has been Mark Sanchez's primary target early in 2010. He leads the Jets with 24 targets. For some perspective, Jerricho Cotchery and Braylon Edwards have combined for 28. It seems as though the Jets made him a focal point in the game plan against New England and Miami, teams that have shown issues matching up with athletic tight ends.

The Bills are another team that has struggled early in the year defending the tight end, particularly without Paul Posluszny. The linebacker sprained his MCL in the opener against Miami and missed the next two games. He might suit up Sunday, but he has been limited in practice this week. Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski combined for 10 catches and 110 yards against Buffalo last week. Jermichael Finley had 103 yards on 4 receptions the week before.

The way Keller is playing, the potential is there for a big game. Even if Posluszny is ready, they should still attack him and see whether there is any rust.
