Week 9: at Kansas City Chiefs

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. The Jets will send Michael Vick into the grinder this week as their new starting quarterback, but he has shown little to inspire confidence in the way of an instant upgrade for New York. 26/56 (a 46.4 completion percentage) for 200 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with 12/92/0 rushing over six games appeared in to date. To make things even worse, this weekend the Jets' offense has to operate within deafening Arrowhead Stadium - where the Chiefs' pass rushers take special advantage of the roaring crowd and make life miserable for opposing passers (of the three opposing quarterbacks to visit Arrowhead this season, only Jake Locker won or had more than one passing TD, with two thrown). Tom Brady had his meltdown in Arrowhead (14/23 for 159 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -8 yards), and Austin Davis was harassed to 15/25 for 116 net yards passing, one TD and one interception, with seven sacks taken for -44 yards last weekend). The Jets have given up 22 sacks already this year, 27th in the NFL, and figure to hike that total dramatically with a rusty Vick under center this weekend. This is an awful matchup for fantasy owners. Stay far away if at all possible.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs DEN (7 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Despite receiving the second most targets among wide receivers, Kerley failed to make plays. Based on talent alone, Kerley had difficulty winning his individual match-ups against Talib. In addition, half of Kerley's targets were deemed uncatchable due to misfires by Geno Smith. Kerley, who was targeted on Smith's interception, ran the wrong route and Talib easily made the play.

2014 Week 7 vs NE (5 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)

Jeremy Kerley, who is New York's top slot receiver, has faded in recent weeks. Despite receiving five to seven targets per game, Kerley has only accounted for seven catches over his last four games. Kerley appeared on 51 of 87 offensive snaps, but had issues beating press coverage at the line of scrimmage. During the first quarter, Kerley caught a 9-yard touchdown pass, but it was nullified due to a penalty.

2014 Week 8 vs BUF (5 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)

With Percy Harvin in fold, Kerley has been relegated to the third wide receiver option in New York's passing offense. Kerley continued to line up in the slot, but did not have many opportunities to make plays. Right before halftime, Kerley ran a quick crossing route and secured a nine-yard gain to put New York in field goal territory.

Jets | Jeremy Kerley not limited (Thu Oct 30, 05:24 PM) - New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley (illness) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Jets | Jeremy Kerley practicing (Thu Oct 30, 11:53 AM) - New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley (illness) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Our View: You have to wonder if Kerley regrets signing his recent extension. Sure the money is nice, but this team has been wearing clown shoes for a long time. Michael Vick is under center this weekend which means all the turnovers will be fumbles, not interceptions which, for fans, is a nice change of pace. Kerley had some fantasy value at one point but with Decker and Harvin in town, as well as a less than potent offense, he's not startable in any format this week.

Jets | Jeremy Kerley's extension official (Tue Oct 21, 04:06 PM) - New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley officially signed a four-year, $16 million extension Tuesday, Oct. 21. Kerley will receive $5.4 million of guaranteed money. He has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year.

Our View: Kerley was nearing the end of his rookie contract, and now he's locked up through the 2018 season. The Jets just acquired Percy Harvin last week, and they added Eric Decker in free agency earlier this year. Even though the future of their quarterback position is up in the air, the Jets are setting themselves up at wide receiver.
