Jeremy Kerley Fantasy Football News 2019

Bills insider Sal Capaccio says the team's top 5 WRs are set -- and Corey Coleman isn't 1 of them. That would put him in danger of not making the final roster, as the team is also reportedly enamored with rookie Ray-Ray McCloud as a potential special-teams contributor and reserve WR. Keeping guys like Rod Streater and Andre Holmes over Coleman would seem crazy, but HC Sean McDermott will make the former Brown earn his spot. Coleman is no more than a late-round flier in best-ball leagues at this point. Capaccio says Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones and Jeremy Kerley are the Bills' top 3 WRs.

The Bills have signed WR Jeremy Kerley to a 1-year deal. Kerley, who will turn 30 in November, has reached 50 catches twice in his 7 seasons, most recently in a 64-667-3 season with the Niners in 2016. He lost half of last year to injury and a 4-game PED suspension. We're not betting on fantasy relevance from the veteran in an ugly-looking Bills pass offense, but he should at least get a chance to compete for targets. Only Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones look like roster locks among the current WR corps.

Jets WR Jeremy Kerley will miss the next 4 games after the league suspended him for violating the PED policy. That's not a big deal for fantasy owners, but it does put a few more targets per week up for grabs. Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Austin Seferian-Jenkins could use the target volume. Kerley will be eligible to play again in Week 15 at New Orleans.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Jets have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Jeremy Kerley. The veteran spent his 1st 5 seasons with the Jets before moving on to Detroit and then arriving in San Francisco via trade last summer. He wound up leading a bad Niners offense in receptions. Doing so for the Jets this season lies within the range of possible outcomes. This offense looks even worse. We still wouldn't bother with him in most fantasy football leagues at this point, though.

Snow is expected throughout today's 49ers-Bears game, accumulating to 3-5 inches. Winds will be at just 5-7 mph, though, so we're not downgrading the passing games. Of course, both offenses figure to go run-heavy anyway.

49ers WR Torrey Smith (back) is "unlikely" to play against the Patriots today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Smith has been battling through this back injury for multiple weeks now and hasn't topped 26 yards since Week 6. His absence should mean a few extra targets for Quinton Patton and Jeremy Kerley.

The 49ers have placed WR Bruce Ellington on IR with the hamstring injury he suffered in the 3rd preseason game. Ellington built sleeper buzz all offseason as San Francisco's projected slot receiver. Now he'll miss his entire 3rd NFL season after a pair of disappointing campaigns to open his career. The 49ers' WR corps, meanwhile, gets even weaker. Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton are expected to start on the outside. Newly-acquired Jeremy Kerley might be the favorite for slot duties. The biggest winner, though, might be TE Vance McDonald. He and Smith are the only 49ers pass-catchers worth drafting.

The Lions have agreed to a deal with former Jets WR Jeremy Kerley, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan. That will give Detroit a slot receiver -- and return man -- who caught a career-high 56 passes back in 2012. Kerley's role declined over the 3 years since, all the way down to just 16 receptions and a career-low 9.5 yards per catch last season. Don't expect Kerley to be relevant for most fantasy football leagues.

Jets WR Eric Decker (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Eagles. He reportedly has a good shot to return for Week 4. Meanwhile, Quincy Enunwa will serve as the #2 WR today. WRs Devin Smith and Jeremy Kerley will play behind Enunwa and Brandon Marshall.

The Jets announced Friday night that WR Devin Smith will miss "most of training camp" after suffering fractured ribs Friday, according to NJ.com. Smith didn't present much fantasy value as a rookie anyway, in an offense unlikely to present much passing volume. He could turn into a valuable deep threat if he can get back before the regular season and flash his deep speed. But the rookie looks like much more of a dynasty prospect than a 2015 factor. His injury could help WR Jeremy Kerley stay relevant.

UPDATE: Smith also suffered a punctured lung.

Jets WR Eric Decker was held out of Thursday's practice with what HC Rex Ryan called hamstring "tightness."  Sounds like a setback to us.  Ryan is still "hopeful" Decker will be able to play against the Chargers this weekend.  "Even in a limited role, you want your best players out there," Ryan said.  We'll have another update tomorrow, but Decker is shaping up as an extremely risky fantasy play again this weekend.  With WR David Nelson (ankle) expected to miss Sunday's game, the Jets could be down to Jeremy Kerley and Greg Salas as their starting wideouts.

Jets HC Rex Ryan said WR Jeremy Kerley (elbow) will play against the Raiders this weekend.  He's looked "outstanding" in practice this week, per Ryan.  Kerley was the team's leading receiver when he went down in Week 9 and should move back into the starting lineup.  But he can't be trusted as a fantasy option with the Jets' QB mess.

Jets WR Jeremy Kerley (elbow) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.  Kerley labeled himself a game-time decision.  His role will likely be scaled back if he does suit up.  Kerley isn’t a fantasy option this week.

The Jets downgraded WR Jeremy Kerley (dislocated elbow) from doubtful to out for Sunday's visit to Baltimore.  Kerley took part in limited practice this week in a no-contact jersey.  We'll see whether he can make it back for Week 13.

Jets WR Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens.  He returned to practice this week and has a shot to return for Week 13.  David Nelson is expected to serve as New York's #2 WR this Sunday but isn't a fantasy option.

Jets WR Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is back at practice this week, putting in limited workouts on Wednesday and Thursday.  It looks like he has a chance to return for this weekend's game against the Ravens.  Kerley was the team's leader in catches and receiving yards when he went down in Week 9.  He should quickly regain a starting spot once healthy.  But New York's inconsistent passing game will leave him as a shaky fantasy play down the stretch.

Jets insider Manish Mehta reports that the team "fears" WR Jeremy Kerley suffered a dislocated elbow in Sunday's game against the Saints.  We should get confirmation tomorrow. "He will not be back any time soon," Mehta adds.  Kerley is currently leading the Jets in catches (28) and receiving yards (347).  His loss is a sizable blow, although New York is expected to get WR Santonio Holmes back after the Week 10 bye.

The Jets have announced that WR Jeremy Kerley is out for the rest of the game with a left elbow injury.  That certainly doesn't help QB Geno Smith or the pass offense in general.  It's probably good news for WR David Nelson, though.
Jets WR Jeremy Kerley had to be helped to the bench after RB Bilal Powell ran into his back on an early 2nd-quarter play.  Kerley's posture on the way to the bench made it look like there might have been a back issue.  He went from there to the locker room but was straightened up and walking under his own power at that point.  We'll update the situation when we know more.
Update: Replay showed Kerley's left wrist taking a shot at the end of the play.  We'll see what the official reports say.

Jets WR Jeremy Kerley has been medically cleared from his concussion.  Barring a setback, he'll play against the Bills this weekend.  Vying for targets in a subpar passing game, though, Kerley is a weak fantasy option.
