Jeremy Kerley to be limited Thursday, but fantasy value unharmed

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

Jeremy Kerley will be limited in Jets practice Thursday due to a litany of ailments. He is expected to play Sunday against the Cardinals, however. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jeremy Kerley will be limited in practice Thursday for the New York Jets, but is expected to play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. Kerley is reportedly dealing with a smorgasbord of ailments, including hamstring and heel injuries, and illness.

Despite being hampered every which way by his body, Kerley was still able to haul in seven receptions for 86 yards last week against the New England Patriots. On the year, he has 45 receptions for 664 yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Kerley has had at least eight targets and five receptions in four his last five games played, making him a still-viable WR3/Flex play in PPR leagues. There is very little upside within a struggling Jets offense, however, so he may be better left on your bench in standard formats. He is a decent enough fantasy stop-gap, but he isn't a downfield playmaker, nor does he find the end zone often.
