Jason Avant caught 4-of-5 targets for 69 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.
This, after Avant posted only 115 yards during the regular season. Avant is one of Andy Reid's favorite human beings, but three months shy of his 33rd birthday and headed back to the open market, it's far from a guarantee he's re-signed for 2016. Sat, Jan 16, 2016 08:35:00 PM

Jason Avant secured 4-of-5 targets for 43 yards in the Chiefs' Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

Avant saw more action than usual because No. 2 receiver Albert Wilson (shoulder) was inactive. A third-down specialist and possession receiver, 32-year-old Avant doesn't warrant week-to-week fantasy consideration.

Chiefs re-signed WR Jason Avant.

A dad-runner at slot receiver, Avant is going on age 32. Chiefs coach Andy Reid seems incapable of fielding a football roster without Avant being a part of it. Avant appeared in 16 games between the Panthers and Chiefs last season, catching 34 balls for 353 yards and a touchdown. Kansas City would be smart to scale back Avant's 2015 role in favor of Albert Wilson.

The Chiefs are reportedly interested in re-signing free agent WR Jason Avant.

Avant joined the Chiefs last November after being cut loose by the Panthers, catching 13 passes for 152 yards over five games. Avant is a lead-footed as they come, but he could provide cheap depth for one of the league's worst wide receiver corps.

Jason Avant caught one pass for seven yards in Week 17.

Avant was a non-factor behind Dwayne Bowe and Travis Kelce. An impending free agent, 31-year-old Avant should struggle to attract interest this offseason.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 06:50:00 PM

Jason Avant caught 5-of-7 targets for 64 yards against the Cardinals.

Avant's 41-yard reception in the third quarter was the longest pass play the Chiefs have mustered this season, which is fitting considering Avant is a lead-footed possession receiver. Despite the seven targets, Avant is not close to the fantasy radar.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 08:05:00 PM

Chiefs signed WR Jason Avant.

Avant will reunite with Andy Reid after being released from Carolina earlier in the week. With the state of Kansas City's receivers, he could provide an upgrade opposite Dwayne Bowe. Avant had just a 21/201/1 line with the Panthers.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 04:40:00 PM

The Chiefs worked out free agent Jason Avant on Friday and "may sign him."

Avant doesn't have much left in the tank in terms of on-field ability, but he knows Andy Reid's offense like the back of his hand. He could upgrade on Frankie Hammond, who was abysmal in Thursday night's loss to the Raiders.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 04:26:00 PM

Panthers waived WR Jason Avant.

One of the league's true "good guys" off the field, Avant simply can't get it done between the lines anymore. The 31-year-old possession receiver is painfully slow and gives nothing after the catch, turning in a 21-201-1 line this season. The Panthers are far better off with Philly Brown as their No. 3. Avant also (rightfully) questioned some play-calling that went down at the end of Sunday's loss to the Falcons.
Tue, Nov 18, 2014 12:19:00 PM

Jason Avant caught five passes for 47 yards in the Panthers' Week 6 tie with the Bengals.

Avant saw seven targets as the No. 4 option in the passing game. He doesn't make plays and isn't worth rostering in 12- and 14-team leagues.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 05:52:00 PM

Panthers WR Jason Avant secured 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to Baltimore.

The Panthers' third receiver behind Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery, possession receiver Avant is on pace for 40 receptions, 360 yards, and four TDs through four games. That is a reasonable pace for the 31-year-old slot man.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 05:01:00 PM

Jason Avant had two catches for 12 yards in Week 3.

Even with Jerricho Cotchery sidelined, Avant continued to play a minor role in the passing game. He secured just two of his six targets. Avant remains off the fantasy radar.
Mon, Sep 22, 2014 01:43:00 AM

Jason Avant (thigh) is questionable for Week 3 against the Steelers.

A better real-life player than fantasy asset, Avant shouldn't be owned anywhere.
Fri, Sep 19, 2014 01:10:00 PM

Jason Avant (thigh) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Avant suffered the thigh injury in Sunday's win. He should return to full practice later this week.
Wed, Sep 17, 2014 05:20:00 PM

Panthers WR Jason Avant finished with five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 victory over Detroit.

Avant was more involved after a quiet opener with Derek Anderson under center, securing 5-of-7 targets from Cam Newton against the Lions. Avant is not worth grabbing in fantasy leagues as the Panthers' No. 3 receiver behind Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery, and No. 4 option when you include Greg Olsen as well.
