Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs SEA (6 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)

Kerley was the beneficiary of Blaine Gabbert's best pass of the day, which split the cornerback and safety down the left sideline for a 20-yard gain. On the catch, Kerley's jumping, twisting catch showed good body control in midair. Later in the first half, however, Gabbert's deficient ball placement on a shallow cross required Kerley to catch the ball behind him, thereby turning a sure first down (and possibly a big gain) into a short third-down completion and a punt.

2016 Week 2 vs CAR (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)

Kerley was less active in San Francisco's passing attack because Carolina defended him differently than Los Angeles did in Week 1. Namely, they didn't play man-to-man with an overmatched slot corner the whole game, reception after reception be damned. No, the Panthers mixed it up and played more zone coverage, with Robert McClain, Luke Kuechly, and Shaq Thompson all getting in on the act. For example, Gabbert's first interception was on a pass intended for Kerley with McClain and Kuechly bracketing him in the middle of th field. Kerley's best play by far was against a similar defensive alignment earlier in the game, but this time Gabbert's ball placement was better, allowing Kerley to make a nice hands catch and spin away from McClain before being tackled 13 yards downfield by Kuechly.

2016 Week 1 vs LA (11 / 7 / 61 / 0 rec)

Either Lamarcus Joyner had an awful game in coverage or Chip Kelly's plan for the passing game revolved around attacking Joyner because he's an awful cornerback. Running routes from the slot or the trail position of a receiver stack, both of which allow him a free release, Kerley was repeatedly wide open due to either beating Joyner in man-to-man or finding the no man's land just on the edge of Joyner's zone responsibility. The most wide open Kerley got was actually on an incompletion. On the second play of San Francisco's first touchdown drive, Kerley ran uncovered on a post from the slot because -- or so it appears -- Joyner didn't know whether he was supposed to play man or zone. Thinking zone, he handed off Kerley to another defender, but there was no other defender, as it was actually man on his half of the field and zone on the other. This was a sure touchdown, except Gabbert overthrew him by 10 yards. After adjusting for all this Joyner-driven success, perhaps the most important conclusion to be drawn from Kerley's performance is that Kelly (and Blaine Gabbert) had no problem starting and featuring a receiver that's been on the team for less than two weeks.

49ers | Jeremy Kerley steps into big role (Sat Sep 17, 10:16 PM) - 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.

Our 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.
