Jeremy Kerley has biggest game of the season for Jets, fantasy owners

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets receiver had a touchdown and nearly 100 yards. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley had his biggest game of the 2013 season Sunday, with 97 receiving yards and a touchdown. Kerley also set season-highs in receptions and targets as the Jets beat the New England Patriots 30-27 in overtime.

Kerley caught eight of his ten targets in the game. His 97 yards were the second-highest total of his career, behind only a 120-yard game he had in 2012, also against the Patriots.

Fantasy impact: This was a huge game from Kerley. With Santonio Holmes and Kellen Winslow both out, and Stephen Hill held to only one reception for 17 yards, Kerley was the team's prime receiver against the Patriots. If he can continue to produce like that, he'll see his fantasy stock skyrocket over the next few weeks.

On the other hand, the Jets' next two games come against good defensive teams, Cincinnati and New Orleans. Kerley might have seen the high-water mark for his season's production Sunday.
