|Jeremy Kerley could be the biggest beneficiary of the Jets offseason acquisition of Eric Decker. Stretched as a “go to” wide receiver, Kerley still performed admirably and the passing game looked much better when he was on the field last season than when he missed time. Ideally, Kerley will man the slot for the Jets where his quickness, sharp route running and sure hands works the best. In PPR leagues, Kerley could be a draft-day bargain in the late rounds as he has the trust of his quarterback and the passing game should be more effective than last season where he lead the team with 523 yards receiving on 43 catches, despite only playing 12 games.
| Hamstring keeps Decker out of practice Wed.|
Rex Ryan optimistic that Decker will play MNF

|FLORHAM PARK - Though Jets wide receiver Eric Decker did not practice Wednesday, because he tweaked his hamstring in Sunday’s loss at Green Bay, he said it was "a good sign" that he was able to do some jogging in the rehab area of the practice field, under the supervision of trainers. Moreover, Jets coach Rex Ryan sounded optimistic that both Decker and cornerback Dee Milliner will play Monday night against the Bears.
FFToday's Take: Through two weeks of action the Jets are ranked 29th in offensive passing yards per game while the Bears defense is giving up under 200 yards through the air. Considering the fact that the Jets play on Monday night fantasy owners should play it safe by going with a different option for Week 3. Decker owners willing to roll the dice may want to consider picking up Jeremy Kerley or David Nelson in case the Jets keep their top receiving threat on the sideline.
| Eric Decker re-injures hamstring|
Jets wideout bothered by hamstring injury in preseason
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 15, 9:00 am
|The New York Jets suffered a potentially costly injury Sunday, as wide receiver Eric Decker exited in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury. It's the same hamstring that nagged Decker throughout training camp, except this time the injury is believed to be more severe. He will have tests Monday, presumably an MRI. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Decker is the key receiver for the Jets so his loss would be a significant blow to the offense. Jeremy Kerley is operating as the No.2 wideout. David Nelson would likely slide into a starting role if Decker misses any time.
