Kennedy is undoubtedly having the worst year of his career. He's also a 28-year-old with one fantastic season on the back of his card and a track record as a reliable No. 3 starter. For the rest of this season, I'm willing to trust the fact that his peripherals have been in line with his career numbers. If he's available in your league, go ahead and give him a shot. If he's owned, check in with his owners before your trade deadline passes.
