Name: Jeremy Kerley
Team: New York Jets
Position: Wide Receiver
Years Pro: 2
Draft stock: (Stagnant) Kerley wasn’t supposed to be a big-time player for the Jets’ offense last season, but injuries opened the door for the second-year wide receiver to make his presence felt. Considering he finished the 2012 season with 827 receiving yards, it’s fair to say that Kerley is undoubtedly the Jets’ most potent offensive weapon.
2012 fantasy impact: Despite only starting in seven games last year, Kerley etched himself into the minds of fantasy football owners across the globe. Santonio Holmes just wasn’t the same wide out that we hoped he’d be in 2012, which left Mark Sanchez to throw to Kerley more than anyone else on the Jets roster — Kerley had a career-high 56 catches in 2012.
Best-case scenario: For the second straight season, Holmes disappoints and Kerley emerges as New York’s go-to target given his great hands and quick feet.
Worst-case scenario: The Jets’ offense is so pitiful that Kerley rarely gets the down-the-field targets that he deserves. Once again, the Jets’ quarterback troubles wind up cripple other player’s fantasy football value.
Where you should draft him: How often does a New York Jet actually produce they way we all predicted they would? While I do think that Kerley is a decent option at the wide receiver spot, I also believe that New York’s offense is so dreadful that member of it should be avoided at all costs.
