Jeremy Kerley caught three passes for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.
Deep in the fourth quarter, Kerley appeared to catch a bomb from Geno Smith to tie the game at 31. But the refs blew the play dead because the Jets called timeout seconds before the snap. Kerley will get a boost in Week 3 if Eric Decker (hamstring) can't go, but we know what he is -- a low-upside slot receiver being stretched badly as a primary target. Sep 14 - 8:37 PM

Jeremy Kerley caught all five of his targets for 38 yards in the Jets' Week 1 win over the Raiders.

Kerley manned the slot in between outside receivers Eric Decker and David Nelson. Kerley doesn't score touchdowns and is only worth fantasy consideration in deeper PPR formats. He'll hover around 40-50 grabs in 2014.
Sep 7 - 6:03 PM

Jeremy Kerley caught one pass for six yards in Friday's preseason game.

It was his lone target. The Jets' slot man now has two grabs for 27 yards through two preseason games. Kerley is a WR5/6 in PPR leagues.
Aug 22 - 11:27 PM

The Jets' No. 2 WR job is considered legitimately open for competition.

Jeremy Kerley is a slot man that's been stretched badly as a featured player the last two seasons. He'll compete with the likes of David Nelson, Jacoby Ford, Stephen Hill, Shaq Evans, Quincy Enunwa, and Jalen Saunders for snaps. None are going to come into reliable fantasy value in the Jets' "Ground 'N Pound" offense.
Jun 2 - 10:52 AM

Jeremy Kerley had five catches for 40 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

Kerley was Geno Smith's favorite target when healthy this season, finishing with 43 catches for a team-high 523 receiving yards and three touchdowns. The Jets are likely to upgrade at receiver this offseason, but Kerley should remain the favorite for slot duties in 2014. He'll be one of the better bargains in the league next year with just a $645,000 base salary.

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Kerley will be all systems go for Sunday's finale against the Dolphins. He's averaging three catches for 45 yards and has one touchdown in three games since returning from his elbow injury and is just a WR5 in fantasy leagues.
Sat, Dec 28, 2013 07:52:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley caught five passes for 70 yards in Week 16 against the Browns.

Both totals led the Jets, as Kerley dominated targets with 11. He's been Geno Smith's safety blanket out of the slot all season long and leads the Jets in receiving. The Browns surprisingly had no answer for Kerley or David Nelson. Even Kellen Winslow got in on the fun. Kerley has been a mere WR4. The Jets travel to Miami to wrap up the regular season next Sunday.

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is practicing in full this week.

Kerley has been back for the past two games after dislocating his elbow and has registered just five catches for 66 yards. He's a low-upside WR4.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 05:50:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley was held to one catch for 25 yards in Week 15 against the Panthers.

Kerley was held without catch until the Jets' final drive of the fourth quarter and finished with just three targets. It was a major step back after he caught four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in his return to the lineup last week. Kerley will be nothing more than a low-upside WR4 in Week 16 against the Browns.

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is practicing in full this week.

Kerley returned to action last week after missing a few games with a dislocated elbow. He's Geno Smith's safety blanket but is merely a WR4 fantasy-wise.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 05:18:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley had four catches for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Kerley immediately stepped back in as a safety valve for Geno Smith, finishing with a team-high seven targets. His touchdown came on an impressive 25-yard catch in the first quarter, but he was mostly a non-factor in the second half. Now that he's finally healthy, Kerley should remain the No. 1 option in the Jets' offense going forward and is worth a look as a WR4 in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 05:16:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley (elbow, probable) participated in Jets practice again Friday.

Not that we expect Kerley to "save" Geno Smith, but the rookie QB has fallen off of a cliff ever since Kerley's elbow dislocation. So his return can only help. Kerley will play against Oakland. He just won't be a fantasy option.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 01:20:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) looked "outstanding" in Thursday's practice, and is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

The same is true of Santonio Holmes. Kerley last played in Week 9. His return is undoubtedly a boost for the Jets' tattered offense, but isn't going to make that much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. Geno Smith is playing that poorly. Kerley can't be trusted as more than a WR5.
Thu, Dec 5, 2013 02:05:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is practicing Wednesday.

Kerley missed his third straight game Sunday, but should return this week barring any setbacks. With Geno Smith struggling, the Jets need Kerley back in the starting lineup. Despite missing four games to injury, he still leads the team in catches (28) and receiving yards (347). Kerley won't be more than a low-end WR4 if active for Week 14 against the Raiders.
Wed, Dec 4, 2013 02:07:00 PM

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Dolphins.

Kerley practiced on a limited basis this week, but will miss his third straight game. Also inactive for the Jets are QB David Garrard, LB Garret McIntyre, OL William Campbell, OT Ben Ijalana, TE Chris Pantele, and OT Oday Aboushi. Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) and Antonio Cromartie (hip) are both active and will start.
