Heading into Week 8 fantasy football, save yourself a headache and sit wide receiver Jeremy Kerley of the New York Jets as he goes up against the defense of the Atlanta Falcons.
When it comes to the wide receiving corps of the New York Jets, it’s a young and mostly inexperienced group with a few bright spots. So far this season, wide receiver Jermaine Kearse has stepped up big time as has Robby Anderson. Even though he’s not even a wide receiver, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has also started to gain some serious momentum since he’s been targeted anywhere between four to 11 times a game. For fantasy football owners that own wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, is he even worth starting in Week 8 action against the Atlanta Falcons?
In the grand scheme of things, Kerley is buried so deep on the Jets depth chart that he’s more than likely not going to do much of anything against the Falcons. One of the biggest issues with Kerley is he tends to drop easy passes on a weekly basis and as of late, barely gets even five passes thrown his way.
Needless to say, Kerley’s fantasy football value has been declining for a while now. It’s to the point that he’s fading away and ending up on the waiver wire in the majority of fantasy leagues.

This week, it’s best to sit Kerley and not waste a starting spot in your final lineups on him since he’s more than likely going to not be much of a difference maker in this matchup. With so many receiving options ahead of him on the Jets from Kearse, Anderson, Seferian-Jenkins, and even running backs Matt Forte, Bilal Powell who are used as eligible receivers out of the backfield, it’s hard to trust Kerley this week.

Sit Kerley this week and don’t even think twice about it. Find any other viable option via the waiver wire since chances are, this will be the weekly case with Kerley unless he either makes some huge plays in the little reps he gets or someone ahead of him gets hurt and his number is called.
