Fantasy Football Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em Week 13: WR Jermaine Kearse
Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse of the New York Jets continues to be inconsistent but put up a solid game last week against the Carolina Panthers. Due to that and a nagging shoulder injury, he’s a safe sit in Week 13 fantasy football.
When it comes to wide receiver Jermaine Kearse of the New York Jets, inconsistency is what has defined him so far this season. He started off red-hot but then fizzled out for the majority of the season. Should fantasy football owners trust Kearse to get the job done in Week 13 action against the defense of the Kansas City Chiefs?
Last week against the Carolina Panthers, Kearse was a difference maker but unfortunately, he was limited in practice this week due to a nagging shoulder injury. He may end up questionable for Sunday’s matchup against the Chiefs but remember, this is the same player that went three straight weeks with no touchdowns and barely cracked 40 receiving yards in each game.
In the grand scheme of things, fantasy football owners should consider benching him this week. With the huge rise of wide receiver Robby Anderson, Kearse has taken a backseat to him and well, might not be at 100 percent against the Chiefs.

Considering that he’s been inconsistent to where he’ll have a huge impact on one game but then do nothing worth mentioning the following week, easily means Kearse can’t be trusted. With fantasy football playoffs right around the corner, this isn’t the time to hope for a miracle or take such a huge risk.
Bench Kearse and don’t even think twice about it. At the end of the day, he’ll more than likely play on Sunday but could see limited action. Expect to see Anderson continue to be the main target on offense and for the Jets to hopefully get the ground game going against the Chiefs to end their two-game losing streak.
START OR SIT?: Fantasy Pros Start or Sit Assistant Tool
Kearse ended up being a decent pickup for the Jets at the start of the regular season but when it comes to his fantasy football value as the year progressed, he saw himself on the outside looking in. Sit him and don’t risk very little to no production in one of your starting slots.
