Jeremy Kerley WR NYJ 17 Days

Kerley caught one pass for 21 yards on one target in Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals.

With Eric Decker (quad) sidelined, there was more to go around for Kerley, Stephen Hill and David Nelson, all of whom are jostling for snaps and targets behind the former Bronco. None of the three made much of an impression, but Kerley has the least to gain or lose, as he's seemingly locked in as the slot man. The illness Kerley dealt with a couple of weeks ago does not appear to be a lingering issue.

Kerley missed Tuesday's practice due to illness, ESPN New York reports.

Kerley's illness is not considered serious, even though it's uncertain whether the wideout will be able to play in Thursday's preseason opener. Whenever he returns to the fold, Kerley figures to assume one of the Jets' top receiving positions behind first-option Eric Decker this season.

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Kerley will be all systems go for Sunday's finale against the Dolphins. He's averaging just three catches for 45 yards and has one touchdown in three games since returning from his elbow injury and is just a WR5 in fantasy leagues.

Jeremy Kerley was held to one catch for 25 yards in Week 15 against the Panthers.

Kerley was held without catch until the Jets' final drive of the fourth quarter and finished with just three targets. It was a major step back after he caught four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in his return to the lineup last week. Kerley will be nothing more than a low-upside WR in Week 16 against the Browns.

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is practicing in full this week.

Kerley returned to action last week after missing a few games with a dislocated elbow. He's Geno Smith's safety blanket but is merely a WR4 fantasy-wise.

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) participated in Jets practice again Friday.

Not that we expect Kerley to "save" Geno Smith, but the rookie QB has fallen off of a cliff ever since Kerley's elbow dislocation. So his return can only help. Kerley will play against Oakland. He just won't be a fantasy option.

Jeremy Kerley (elbow) looked "outstanding" in Thursday's practice, and is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

The same is true of Santonio Holmes. Kerley last played in Week 9. His return is undoubtedly a boost for the Jets' tattered offense, but isn't going to make that much a of a difference in the grand scheme of things. Geno Smith is playing that poorly. Kerley can't be trusted as more than a WR5.
