Kesler "Nowhere Near" Ready

Standard Spin: Ryan Kesler affirmed today that he is not going to be ready for training camp. He had hip surgery in August to repair a tear. Still further, Kesler stated that based on how he feels right now, he won't even be ready for the start of the season. This definitely hurts his fantasy value as owners will need to factor in the time it will take Kesler to get back up to his usual speed when he finally does return. We foresee a drop in Kesler's totals this season. (Sep.9)
