WR - FA
Week 7 Outlook
The Buffalo Bills released veteran wideout Jeremy Kerley and activated DT Robert Thomas from the practice squad. Kerley played 69% of Buffalo's offensive snaps in Week 1, drawing five targets and catching two passes.
Andre Holmes and Zay Jones should benefit the most from Kerley's release but we're talking about one of the league's worst offenses and receiving corps. Kerley will probably draw interest as an injury replacement but is well off the fantasy radar.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Buffalo Bills have signed free-agent WR Jeremy Kerley to a one-year deal.
Following a career year with the 49ers in 2016, Kerely had one to forget last season with the Jets. After putting up a 22-217-1 stat line in eight games, Kerely was hit with a four-game PED ban, which led to his release. However, he'll have a chance to bounce back on a Bills team that needs help at wideout. Still, despite the opportunity, Kerley shouldn't be viewed a fantasy option at this point. He'll need a lot of help to get there.
Jeremy Kerley saw no targets in the Jets’ Week 9 win over the Buffalo Bills.
Kerley saw only six snaps against the Bills before leaving the game with an ankle injury in the first quarter. With an injured ankle and a possible suspension looming over his head, Kerley has little-to-no fantasy value at this point and probably won’t have any going forward as long as Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse continue to produce.
Jeremy Kerley caught one of three targets for 7 in the Jets’ Week 8 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
After a disappointing Week 7 performance against the Miami Dolphins, Kerley didn’t do himself any favors against the Falcons Sunday afternoon. The seven-year man out of TCU only registered one catch on only three targets and muffed a punt for the second consecutive week. Kerley’s role in the Jets passing attack has clearly diminished now that Robby Anderson has established himself as the Jets’ top receiver. Fantasy owners in need of wide receiver depth should look elsewhere even if they're desperate for help at the position.
Jeremy Kerley caught two of four targets for 17 in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Normally a reliable target, Kerley had a day to forget against the Dolphins Sunday afternoon. The seven-year man out of TCU was only able to muster 17 receiving yards and put the ball on the ground twice. With Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Austin Seferian-Jenkins establishing themselves as quarterback Josh McCown’s preferred targets, Kerley’s fantasy outlook going forward doesn’t look promising, especially against a tough Atlanta Falcons secondary next week.
