Kerley converted eight targets into six catches for 61 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley looked like a shrewd low-price pickup early this season, but never really found much of a groove once Colin Kaepernick took over at quarterback, scoring just once in 11 games and never topping 71 yards with his new quarterback. The veteran still managed to garner career-highs in catches and targets and re-enters free agency as a solid complementary weapon.

Kerley nabbed five of nine targets for 62 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley grabbed a key, leaping 17-yard completion early in the 49ers' fourth-quarter drive to make it a one-score game. Kerley has had some highs this season, including a two-game stretch against Dallas and Arizona in which he caught 14 total passes for 190 yards and two scores. There have been plenty of lows too, however, but Kerley seems determined to end the season on a high note. The diminutive receiver has now caught five passes in three straight games.

Kerley caught five of eight targets for just 28 yards in Sunday's 41-13 loss at Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley actually led the 49ers in receptions and targets, as Colin Kaepernick mainly used short throws to finish with just 183 yards on 33 attempts. With Torrey Smith (concussion) inactive, Kerley missed an opportunity to produce. He'll try to rebound in Week 16 against the Rams.

Kerley grabbed five of his eight targets for a team-high 50 yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Torrey Smith went down with a concussion and Kerley stepped up to fill a larger role for the remainder of the game. Smith's concussion looked fairly serious, and the veteran wideout had to be carted off the field. His availability for next Sunday's tilt against the Falcons will determine whether Kerley will see an expanded role in Week 14 or not. Even if he were the top receiving option for Colin Kaepernick next week, it would be tough to recommend him outside of deep PPR formats.

Kerley caught one pass for a team-high 18 yards in Sunday's 26-6 loss to the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

No, that was not a typo. Kerley's lone reception for 18 yards led all San Francisco receivers on a day where the team passed for just 39 yards. Heavy snow was the likely culprit of the utter lack of an air attack. Next week's matchup at home against the Jets will provide better playing conditions, but Kerley remains an inconsistent option regardless of the weather with just one game of 25-plus receiving yards over his last seven contests.

Kerley caught two passes for 24 yards against the Dolphins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley technically bounced back from his zero-catch effort last week, but he still didn't come close to his strong performance Week 10 (seven catches, 71 yards and a score). In fact, that had been his only fantasy-relevant game since Colin Kaepernick took over under center. Next week's matchup against the Bears is shaping up to be a high-scoring affair amongst two teams with poor defenses, so Kerley could find himself with a usable stat line when the dust settles, but we wouldn't count on it.

Despite being targeted six times, Kerley finished the day with zero catches in a 30-17 loss to the Patriots on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Just when it seemed like he was developing chemistry with Colin Kaepernick, Kerley comes out and posts a dud. Heavy rain may have played a role in the lack of connections between the veteran wideout and his quarterback, but deep league owners who rostered him for this game are not looking for excuses. With a low ceiling and an even lower floor, Kerley is not worth rostering in all but the deepest leagues.

Kerley caught all seven of his targets for 71 yards and a touchdown Sunday in Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley had failed to top 22 receiving yards in any of Colin Kaepernick's first three starts under center, but showed a better rapport with the scrambling signal-caller in this one. The slot receiver's underneath routes better suited ex-starter Blaine Gabbert, as Kaepernick tends to try to push the ball downfield more. While Kerley should remain involved moving forward, it's tough to trust any of San Francisco's underwhelming receivers.

Kerley was held to 22 yards on three catches in Sunday's 41-23 loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley has been a non-factor since Colin Kaepernick took over under center, averaging 16.3 yards per game in those three contests. The two players' styles do not mesh well on the field. Kerley is best left on waivers, especially against a tough Arizona secondary next week.

Kerley was limited to just 15 yards on two catches (five targets) in Sunday's 34-17 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

The early-season PPR darling has fallen out of grace with his new quarterback, posting just 27 yards on four catches with Colin Kaepernick under center these past two weeks. He is still seeing targets since the quarterback switch (12 targets last two weeks), but the change in styles has negatively affected him. As previously mentioned, Kaepernick hangs on to the ball much longer than Blaine Gabbert did, rendering Kerley's quick-hitting routes useless. After having PPR value to start the year, Kerley is best left on waivers unless Blaine Gabbert regains the starting job through an injury or a coaching change.
