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.

Kerley was only able to pull in two of the seven balls thrown his way for 12 yards in a loss to Buffalo on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley -- who was San Francisco's leading receiver entering Sunday's game -- was negatively affected by the quarterback change this week. Colin Kaepernick hangs on to the ball longer and has a lengthier throwing motion than Blaine Gabbert, and that does not mesh well with Kerley's quick-hitting ability out of the slot. He was still targeted seven times, so his new quarterback was trying to feed him the ball. We will have to see how this relationship develops down the stretch, starting with next week's matchup against the Buccaneers.

Kerley (ankle) logged a full practice Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Buffalo, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the week with a pair of limited sessions, Kerley returned to a full practice Friday, confirming that his ankle ailment poses no threat to his availability. He clearly established himself as the Niners' No. 1 wideout by catching 14 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns on 23 targets the past two weeks, but it remains to be seen how Kerley will handle the QB switch from Blaine Gabbert to Colin Kaepernick. As poorly as Gabbert played, his tenure as the 49ers' starting quarterback was undeniably a positive development in Kerley's career.

Kerley (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kerley turned in back-to-back capped practices in advance of Thursday's eventual loss to the Cardinals, but the limitations didn't stop him from churning out eight catches (on 13 targets) for 102 yards and one touchdown. While he didn't match Larry Fitzgerald's pair of touchdowns, Kerley otherwise led all receivers in the other categories. The switch in quarterbacks from Blaine Gabbert to Colin Kaepernick could have unintended consequences on Kerley, but the veteran hasn't exactly worked with premier signal-callers and has still posted a modest 12.2 YPC for his career.

Kerley (ankle) secured eight of 13 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 33-21 loss to the Cardinals. He also fumbled once but it was recovered.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being limited all week in practice and having to frequently deal with Patrick Peterson's coverage, Kerley impressively paced all receivers with his target, reception and yardage totals. The 27-year-old has clearly developed solid rapport with Blaine Gabbert and has received at least six targets in each game to date this season. Following Thursday's production, he's notched 14 catches on 22 targets for 190 yards and his first pair of touchdowns over the last two weeks. Given his body of work to date, Kerley figures to continue carrying some decent fantasy value, especially considering he plays in a fast-paced attack that will yield him extra possessions in every game.
