Jets WR a surprisingly good add
Snap counts reveal big fantasy implications for Jeremy Kerley
Snap data is now available to anyone willing to download game books. Each week, it seems, beat writers from around the country put an emphasis on how many snaps a given player was on the field for; however, that doesn't provide much help in understanding a player's fantasy value and potential.
At Pro Football Focus, we have been keeping our own snap data for years, and we go a lot deeper into snap numbers. We break down whether those snaps were run or pass plays, what the players did on those snaps and where they lined up.
Here's a look into some of this week's top fantasy football topics from an in-depth snap count perspective.
Jeremy Kerley's role in the Jets' receiving corps
With the New York Jets running so low on receivers that Terrell Owens is openly offering his services to them, one of the few holdovers from the fully healthy roster is Kerley, who previously was primarily a slot receiver in their offense (playing 86 percent of his snaps at that position). Santonio Holmes is now gone for the year, and while rookie Stephen Hill should return, that will still leave Kerley with a hugely expanded role. But exactly how much extra playing time will Kerley receive? And what will that mean from a fantasy perspective?
