Jeremy Kerley's lingering finger injury not a fantasy setback

Joel Auerbach

New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is probable for today's match-up. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley was listed on the team's Friday injury report as probable. The Jets wide out was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but has been battling through a finger injury. He is expected to suit up and start today when the Jets host the Miami Dolphins at MetLife Stadium.

In a physical division game, the Jets will need their playmakers to show up and that means Kerley. He should be a factor in today's AFC East match-up.

Fantasy Analysis: With the loss of Santonio Holmes, slot receiver Jeremy Kerley was asked to step up. Systematically, Kerley was able to step into Holmes' role as they share the same body-type and skill set. There is reason to believe Kerley could take on the sort of production Holmes was expected to see.

However, the Jets have serious woes at quarterback with Mark Sanchez behind center, and the occasional appearance of backup Tim Tebow. Kerley should be an exceptional option, but he is really only a high-end flex on a good day.
