You can, but I'm not sure that USB anything is a good idea for GPG keys.
If you trust the computer enough to unlock your keys on it then the fob
isn't adding any security to the workflow, but it adds complexity and
inconvenience. If you don't trust that computer then plugging writable
storage into it is a very bad idea.
