Heading into Week 14 fantasy football, wide receiver Jermaine Kearse of the New York Jets is only worth starting as a FLEX option if you’re feeling risky.

When it comes to the offense of the New York Jets, they’re a bit inconsistent, to say the least. As a fantasy football owner, it’s hard to predict who will be their top performer that can produce a plethora of points in any given week. The offensive game planning of the Jets tends to change every week as sometimes they’re focused more on airing it out while other times they stick to their ground game. What should fantasy owners do in Week 14 with wide receiver Jermaine Kearse as he faces the Denver Broncos?

Well, in the grand scheme of things, this is a risky decision to make. On one hand, the Jets are on the road and Kearse has been inconsistent for most of the season. On the other hand, Kearse is coming off his second straight 100+ yard game but didn’t score a touchdown last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Due to this, it only makes sense to start Kearse if you’re desperate for a filler at the FLEX position. Unfortunately, Kearse isn’t a dependable WR2 and is nowhere near being a WR1.

If you’re feeling risky since there is that pretty high chance he will have another productive game, he’s worth starting in that aspect if you don’t have any other viable option at the FLEX position. Kearse has only scored five touchdowns this season but hopefully, he can score at least one going up against the tough secondary of the Broncos.

Overall, only start Kearse as a FLEX option but don’t make the mistake of using up your WR1 or WR2 spot on him since he’s not going to produce such numbers that warrant those positions. He should be able to have another solid game against the Broncos and hopefully, be a big reason for the Jets winning on the road in their Week 14 matchup.
