Heading into Week 2 fantasy football, it’s best to sit New York Jets wide receiver Jermaine Kearse against the Miami Dolphins.
Last week against the Detroit Lions, New York Jets wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, unfortunately, missed the game due to an abdomen injury. The Jets were able to use the “next man up” strategy and were still able to have an effective passing attack without Kearse in the lineup. Should fantasy football owners take a risk with him entering Week 2?
The Jets are at home in MetLife Stadium for their Week 2 matchup against the Miami Dolphins as it’s best that fantasy football owners of Kearse sit him this week. It’s a golden rule that regardless of the player, it’s never a good idea to start someone immediately coming off an injury that could limit their ability to get the job done.
In addition to that, knowing how head coach Todd Bowles tends to operate, he will likely ease Kearse into the lineup in a limited amount of plays. It’s not worth the risk to start Kearse in any way, shape, or form in your fantasy lineup since he’ll likely not do much of anything with the limited reps he will see coming his way.

It’s best to sit Kearse this week and not even second judge it. The Jets have a lot of other wide receivers in their arsenal featuring Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, Terrelle Pryor, and Andre Roberts. They’ll likely use Kearse to spell relief for one of these players during this Week 2 AFC East rivalry game.
Since the Jets have several tight ends on their roster as well that are relatively unknown, they might make it an emphasis to get more contributions from that positional group. All in all, things aren’t looking good for Kearse from a fantasy football standpoint this week.
Don’t risk putting him in as a WR2 or a FLEX since it’s just not worth it. If you’re in a dire need to add another wide receiver in those spots, it’s best to hit the waiver wire rather than risk getting very little to no points starting Kearse.
