49ers WR Jeremy Kerley (ankle) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Kerley will be fine to face the Bills, but with Colin Kaepernick under center, will he see the same workload? The slot receiver is a focal point of Chip Kelly’s offense, so we believe so, but Kaepernick still has to deliver the ball.

49ers Beat: Slot WR Jeremy Kerley 'in position to see a lot of passes'

Friday, September 9, 2016, 9:54am

Sacramento Bee - [Full Article]

When the 49ers played their third preseason game two weeks ago, receiver Jeremy Kerley was a member of the Detroit Lions. Now he’s a 49ers starter. At two spots.

He’s the team’s top option at slot receiver – a feature role in Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense – and also will handle punt returns when the Rams visit Levi’s Stadium on Monday.

Kerley is in position to see a lot of passes. During spring and summer practices, the 49ers’ top slot receiver, Bruce Ellington, was a frequent target of quarterback Blaine Gabbert and seemed poised for a big season. He's the only player on the roster who fits Kelly’s ideal mold for a slot receiver: rabbit quick, a fast accelerator and – especially critical this week – mentally sharp.

“I think he’s a wily veteran. He’s been around,” Kelly said of Kerley. “I think having Curtis and Bob here has really helped him. But you can tell right away that Jeremy’s a pretty smart football player.”

Kerley’s best season was 2012 when he had 56 catches for 827 yards for the Jets.

Fantasy Impact:

Kerley is worth consideration in deep PPR formats, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy factor in most leagues.

49ers WR Jeremy Kerley starting in the slot

Jeremy Kerley is entering just his second week with the 49ers, but he is already the team’s starting slot receiver and punt returner.

Actually, Kerley is the 49ers' only slot receiver and punt returner.

The 49ers released their first unofficial depth chart on Tuesday, as the club begins preparations to open the regular season on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact:

This was the role that Bruce Ellington was going to fill before getting injured. The agile Kerley had a 56-827-2 season with the Jets in 2012.

The San Francisco 49ers added depth to their receiving corps.

The 49ers acquired receiver Jeremy Kerley from the Detroit Lions in exchange for reserve offensive lineman Brandon Thomas, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

Kerley accumulated 152 yards on 16 receptions last season, his fifth year with the New York Jets. The slot receiver was battling for a roster spot deep in Detroit's pecking order.

Kerley, 27, earned his best season in 2012, when he compiled 56 receptions for 827 yards. His playing time waned over the past two years. Kerley could be a nice complement in Chip Kelly's spread system. Behind Torrey Smith and Bruce Ellington, the competition is wide open for snaps in San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact:

The trade likely explains why Kerley didn't get any run in Saturday night’s preseason tilt. The story said both players were likely going to be cut.

Lions expect WR T.J. Jones to get involved

That means the Lions are looking for the supporting cast at WR to step up. Golden Tate will be featured prominently alongside Marvin Jones, and Detroit has acquired former Jet Jeremy Kerley to man the slot.

But there will be opportunities behind those guys. And it appears the Lions are anticipating T.J. Jones to take advantage of them.

"We really expect him to come forward and be a little bit more of a prominent threat," coach Jim Caldwell said.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was a sixth-round pick of the club in 2014, but experienced nerve pain following shoulder surgery that offseason and never played a down. He caught passes in four of the final five games including a 29-yard touchdown in a Week 16 win against San Francisco. Caldwell went on to say Jones return ability and scat-back ability, where he can catch screens and take off and go.

Lions sign WR Jeremy Kerley

Lions and former Jets WR Jeremy Kerley have agreed to terms on a contract, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Kerley fell out of favor with the new regime in New York and never really recovered. He's 27 years old and has an 800-yard season on his resume. He'll provide depth in Detroit behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.
