Jeremy Kerley had seven receptions for 120 yards during the New York Jets' loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Kerley was targeted a team-high 11 times on the day. He was the biggest beneficiary of a 328-yard passing performance by Mark Sanchez.
Kerley posted the highest single-game yardage of his career during his loss. It was his first game with more than 100 yards receiving in his two seasons in the NFL. He had 94 yards receiving two weeks ago against the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Impact: Kerley was targeted early and often by Sanchez on the day. He is clearly the Jet's top wideout at the moment with Santonio Holmes out for the season due to injury. Stephen Hill was Sanchez's second target in the wide receiver corps. He caught four passes for 55 yards off seven targets.
Kerley is one of the Jets' better fantasy options at the moment. Unfortunately, there will be games where he can only go as far as his teammates will take him. Sunday was a rare productive offensive day for the Jets. Don't expect Kerley to produce like a fantasy starter on a weekly basis.
