The Jets 2011 5th round pick put together a decent rookie season, catching 29 passes for 314 yards and a touchdown while solidifying the team’s punt returner role. At 5’9” and 188 pounds, the Texas Christian product seems ill suited to a starting role but has some potential to develop into a decent slot receiver in a Jets offense that lacks proven pass catchers. Kerley has more value in dynasty leagues that use the PPR scoring system than in standard scoring, redraft formats.
49ers put WR Bruce Ellington on IR-- Tue Aug 30 4:00 pm --

FF Today's Take:Ellington carved out a starting role this preseason and was gaining momentum in the fantasy community before last week's injury. Jeremy Kerley has been added for depth but the 49ers have one of the weakest group of receivers in the league. Torrey Smith and TE Vance McDonald are the only fantasy considerations among the group.
Lions HC Caldwell talks up WR T.J. Jones-- Fri Jun 24 1:00 pm --
Third-year receiver getting pre-camp hype
“TJ really has got to take another step forward,” head coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s a guy that does a lot of things well.
“He can return for you. He’s got return ability. But then also, he’s got a little scat back ability. He can catch screens for you. He can take off and go when he gets a seam. We really expect him to come forward and be a little bit more of a prominent threat.”
FF Today's Take:T.J. Jones is currently sitting fourth on the wide receiver depth chart behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Jeremy Kerley. Even with the Lions needing to replace production from Calvin Johnson, Jones in all likelihood would need an injury to a receiver higher on the depth chart in order to become fantasy relevant. He's a late-round dart throw / free agent type in redraft leagues.
