Kerley led the Jets with six targets and caught five of them for 68 yards, including a 16-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith. Kerley also hauled in a reception on the Jets' game-winning drive, moving the chains toward the end of the game which culminated in a Nick Folk field goal as time expired. It's clear that rookie quarterback Geno Smith has developed a rapport with Kerley, whose catches and yards have increased each game since Week 3's loss to the Bills.
Fantasy Spin: It's encouraging that Kerley continues to produce with Holmes out of commission for the time being, but his value to the Jets doesn't carry over to fantasy leagues. Monday night marked Kerley's lone double-digit game of the season, and with fantasy leagues suffering no shortage of wide receivers, he is only worth an add in deep leagues and leagues that award points for return yards. Kerley deserves monitoring going forward as the Jets offense continues to blossom, but owners would be better suited with other options in the meantime.
