Jeremy Kerley inactive for Thursday, no fantasy value this week

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Jeremy Kerley has been ruled inactive after suffering a concussion in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

The New York Jets have declared wide receiver Jeremy Kerley inactive for Thursday night's game against the New England Patriots.

Kerley suffered a concussion in the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He finished that game with three catches for 45 yards. He did not practice at all this week, although he is expected to be back in time for Week 3. The Jets have 10 days before that game after playing on Thursday.

Fantasy impact: This leaves the Jets down to Stephen Hill, Santonio Holmes, Clyde Gates and Ben Obomanu as the Jets' active receivers on Thursday. Holmes is still recovering from foot surgery and may play a decoy role again. It's hard to recommend any of these players in fantasy right now.

Kellen Winslow had a surprising performance last week and could end up being Geno Smith's favorite safety valve this season. He's worth picking up as a TE2.
