  Bills | Jeremy Kerley could return    Sat Sep 15, 12:55 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Kerley (Bills) could re-sign with the Buffalo Bills at some point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Kerley was released because the team needed to add another defensive tackle to the active roster. Fantasy GMs have much better options than picking someone from the Bills passing game.

Footballguys view: The Bills could bring Kerley back at a later date. Fantasy GMs don't need to worry much about anyone in the Bills passing game.

  Bills | Jeremy Kerley may be No. 2 WR    Thu Aug 9, 02:17 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Jeremy Kerley has a chance to win the No. 2 receiver job during training camp and would move to the slot receiver position then the team uses three-receiver sets, in the opinion of WKBW.com's Joe Buscaglia.

Footballguys view: Considering they have Kelvin Benjamin, invested a second round pick in Zay Jones and just traded for Corey Coleman, that would be concerning. We expected him to be a slot guy, which doesn't preclude him being one of the top two receivers in Buffalo, but would make it clear that the Bills passing offense isn't one where we expect much fantasy value.

  Bills | Jeremy Kerley holding down the slot    Fri Jul 27, 10:10 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Jeremy Kerley opened training camp as the starting slot receiver.

Footballguys view: Kerley could easily lead this team in catches, but that might not be enough to make him relevant for fantasy in this offense.

  Bills | Jeremy Kerley working as slot WR    Thu Jun 7, 06:55 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Jeremy Kerley has been lining up as the slot receiver with the first-team offense during organized team activities. He's been a 'firm fit' so far and should have a leg up for this spot, with his 'primary sources of competition' coming from rookie WRs Austin Proehl and Ray-Ray McCloud.

Footballguys view: This is Kerley's natural position, and at this point in his career, likely what he is best capable of. Kelvin Benjamin is inconsistent and Zay Jones will be coming off surgery, so this could be a productive year for him in PPR leagues. Our expectations are super low, however, given this is a run first offense and the quarterback situation is foggy. Don't draft him, but keep an ear out for the buzz out of camp.

  Bills | Four WRs working as returners    Thu May 31, 03:33 PM

Buffalo Bills WRs Kaelin Clay, Austin Proehl, Jeremy Kerley and Ray-Ray McCloud all worked as punt returners during organized team activities Thursday, May 31.

Footballguys view: This may be the best way for one or two of them to make the roster. None of them offer a ton of value as a receiver and if Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones are healthy, likely to be not much for them to do there anyway. We wouldn't roster them any time soon.

  Bills | Jeremy Kerley top option for slot    Mon May 21, 12:23 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Jeremy Kerley will enter offseason workouts as the leading candidate for the slot receiver job but will compete with WRs Ray-Ray McCloud and Austin Proehl for the job.

Footballguys view: That was to be expected when Kerley signed with the Bills in mid-April. He'll compete to be the team's slot receiver while also contributing as a return man. There's not much fantasy value for the slot receiver (no matter who wins the job) in Buffalo.

  Jets | Jeremy Kerley back with Jets    Tue Sep 5, 05:19 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Kerley (49ers) is signing a one-year deal with the New York Jets Tuesday, Sept. 5, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Kerley could actually have value in deep PPR leagues due to his skill set and role in the Jets offense as the slot receiver. The Jets don't have much in the passing game, but Kerley might be their most targeted wideout.

  49ers | Jeremy Kerley let go    Sat Sep 2, 02:38 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley was released Saturday, Sept. 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The leading receiver for the 49ers last year has to find a new home this year. Kerley can still produce as a part-time player, so he should be able to find work rather quickly. However, he's not going to be a fantasy factor no matter where he lands.

  49ers | Marquise Goodwin poised for breakout?    Sat Jul 22, 10:53 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin is more than just a deep threat, according to WR Jeremy Kerley. 'Working with him for the last two or three months, he's an all-around receiver and he knows what he's doing,' Kerley said.

Footballguys view: Kyle Shanahan had great success last year utilizing Taylor Gabriel as a speed/quickness option in the Falcons offense, and many speculate that he will try to use Goodwin in the same way. Goodwin has had trouble staying healthy, but he is among the fastest receivers in the league. The 49ers should give him the biggest opportunity he has had in his career.

  49ers | Trent Taylor making strong impression    Thu Jun 15, 09:37 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor has been 'very good at separating' from defenders, according to head coach Mike Shanahan, and Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee believes Taylor could return punts and eventually challenge WR Jeremy Kerley for the slot receiver role.

Footballguys view: Taylor is small (5'8" 181 pounds) but he's tough and quick. He was heavily targeted in college at Louisiana Tech, and Taylor has great instincts when it comes to getting open. Watch him in dynasty leagues.

  49ers | Jeremy Kerley back with 49ers    Sat Mar 4, 02:42 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley agreed to terms on a new three-year deal with the 49ers Saturday, March 4, worth $10.5 million.

Footballguys view: Kerley has a chance to put up some numbers in the Kyle Shanahan system. We're not expecting much from him, but everyone needs to realize it wasn't that long ago that Taylor Gabriel (35 catches, 579 yards, six TDs in 2016) was picked up by the Falcons once the Browns waived him. Just keep an eye on this 49ers WR situation with Shanahan running the show.

  49ers | Jeremy Kerley will be free agent    Sat Jan 28, 04:13 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: In just one year with the 49ers, Kerley finished with the most catches (64) and second-most receiving yards (667) of his career. A team in need of a low-end slot receiver...likely for a good price...should be interested in Kerley.

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley posted seven grabs for a team-high 71 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Kerley and Colin Kaepernick seem to be in sync, and the former Jets receiver was a big part of the reason the Cardinals found themselves in a dog fight on Sunday. He's too inconsistent to rely on from a fantasy standpoint, but as Kaepernick improves, Kerley's numbers might as well.

  49ers | Jeremy Kerley not a big factor    Sun Oct 16, 05:05 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley caught two passes for 12 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Quinton Patton played a much bigger role in the offense in this one. It might not be a lasting effect, but the switch from Blaine Gabbert to Colin Kaepernick seemed to short circuit Kerley's budding value. Next week against Tampa should be a true test of whether Kerley is worth carrying in deep leagues.

  49ers | Jeremy Kerley's role will not change    Sat Oct 15, 01:29 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley is expected to remain the focal point of the passing game despite head coach Chip Kelly's recent decision to change quarterbacks, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner.

Footballguys view: Kerley's role may not change, but we don't know if he's going to be a preferred target by new starting QB Colin Kaepernick. Fantasy owners should take a wait and see approach if you can. We consider Kerley a WR4 this week against the Bills.

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley finished with eight catches for 102 yards and a touchdown in a 33-21 loss to the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Oct. 6.

Footballguys view: Say what you want about Kerley's relative value, but this is two really good outings in a row. We aren't sure he can keep it up - and if Blaine Gabbert loses his job as the fans are demanding, Kerley might disappear with him--but he's got a hot hand right now. Keep riding him as a solid flex play.

San Francisco 49ers WR Jeremy Kerley played 54 of 81 offensive snaps and led the team with 11 targets in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Kerley was the focus of the passing game early in the win over the Rams. He could be a nice PPR bench depth player as a frequent target in a high volume offense.

Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Kerley was acquired by the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Aug. 28, in exchange for OG Brandon Thomas, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Kerley was not needed after the Lions signed Anquan Boldin. It's possible Andre Roberts could make the team over him too. Thomas was a top prospect before an ACL tear, so he could help the Lions offensive line depth.
