Jeremy Kerley has had two solid fantasy outings this season. One in Week 5 and then last week, where he grabbed eight receptions for 97 yards and a score against New England. Kerley is a wide out that lacks the consistency to be considered a WR2 option, but could pass as a WR3 or Flex option in leagues deeper than 12 teams. New York's passing attack is not by any means polished, but can prove potent when receivers make plays. Kerley can make plays and last week capitalized with six first downs and one TD over his eight receptions. Kerley is an interesting play this week vs. Cincinnati.


Rob Housler is unfortunately part of an offense that cannot seem to get their act together. At 6'5 and 250 pounds, Housler is a presence on the field and has the athleticism to match, but he has yet to have a true breakout game. The last two weeks have looked up for Housler as he has seen more targets and nabbed seven passes for 53 yards last week vs. Seattle. Housler should continue to see increased targets as the Arizona offense seeks to find its pace. He is an option at TE2 in deep leagues, but is just finding his way onto the general fantasy radar. This week he faces an Atlanta defense that has allowed the 13th most fantasy points to tight ends. Look for Housler to be a guy that some fantasy owners in deep leagues consider this week.
