Jeremy Kerley out for Week 2 with concussion, change fantasy lineup accordingly

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets wide receiver will not play in Week 2 due to a concussion. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley will sit out the team's Week 2 matchup against the New England Patriots due to a concussion, according to ESPN NFL Nation reporter Rich Cimini.

Fantasy Impact: Kerley emerged as a second option in the Jets' passing game behind Santonio Holmes last season, while also contributing in the return game. Kerley might be worth a look in leagues that reward return yards, but with the Jets starting rookie Geno Smith at quarterback, Kerley would be far from a sure bet to contribute anything that would make him a consistent starting option fantasy-wise. With Kerley out, Stephen Hill and Clyde Gates could see an increase in targets, with Kyle Wilson slated to handle punt return duties.
