Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Seahawks' Week 6 win over the Falcons.

The yardage was Kearse's second most of 2016, which tells you all you need to know about his fantasy situation. Kearse is off the radar in all formats.
Oct 16 - 8:13 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Seahawks' Week 4 win over the Jets.

Kearse is on pace to catch just 48 balls for 408 scoreless yards at the season's quarterpole. As evidenced by those numbers, Kearse isn't a fantasy option.
Oct 2 - 6:20 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

His yardage totals through three weeks are 57, 11, and 11. Particularly with Jimmy Graham coming on and Russell Wilson battling multiple injuries, Kearse is going to have a very hard time establishing any hint of re-draft value.
Sep 25 - 7:28 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-6 targets for 11 yards in the Seahawks' Week 2 loss to the Rams.

Kearse biggest play was an offensive pass interference penalty that cost the Seahawks a big gain and a first down in the second half. Coach Pete Carroll went nuts on the sideline, as the two teams combined for 19 penalties in the 9-3 game. Kearse isn't worth owning in 10- and 12-team leagues.
Sep 18 - 8:06 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 5-of-7 targets for 57 yards in Seattle Week 1 win over Miami.

Kearse started over Tyler Lockett in two-wide sets, but was the No. 3 pass-game option. There wasn't a ton of opportunities for him in one of the lowest scoring games of the week. Kearse can continue to be avoided in most leagues.
Sep 11 - 8:40 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-4 targets for 32 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Kearse out-snapped Tyler Lockett 21-10 in the first half. Lockett is undeniably on the rise, but Kearse appears to have him edged in two-receiver sets to begin the season. Seattle didn't give Kearse a three-year, $13.5 million contract for nothing. Lockett is still the preferred fantasy own, of course. Kearse's grabs this evening were his lone receptions in three preseason games.
Aug 26 - 12:08 AM

Seahawks re-signed WR Jermaine Kearse to a three-year, $13.5 million contract.

Kearse, 26, finished last season with 49 catches for 685 yards and five TDs, making the most of his 68 targets. He dropped just four regular season passes and has only seven drops over the past two years. Kearse drew limited market interest because he isn't particularly big (6'1/209) or fast (4.58), and would be a poor bet to succeed outside the Seahawks' system. In 2016, Kearse should expect fewer targets with Tyler Lockett ascending.
Mar 10 - 8:07 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Jermaine Kearse fully intends to hit the open market.

It's not a surprise. With Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett in the fold, the Seahawks have little incentive to overpay. Kearse, meanwhile, has every reason to test free agency in a year that's typically thin at the top of the wide receiver class.
Mar 3 - 5:37 PM

Coach Pete Carroll admits the Seahawks have some "work to do" with free agent Jermaine Kearse.

As in, the sides are far apart in talks. With the free agent market so thin at receiver, Kearse has no incentive to take a "hometown discount." On the other side of things, with Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett ready to serve as their top two wideouts, the Seahawks have little incentive to overpay. Kearse will probably be moving on.
Feb 25 - 3:12 PM

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports there is a "growing sentiment" the Seahawks will "try hard" to re-sign impending free agent Jermaine Kearse.

Keeping Kearse in Seattle may prove difficult. He has already said he will not offer the Seahawks a hometown discount, and the lack of talent in the free-agent class will certainly drive up his price. In a weak market, Kearse may be able to push $4 million annually. Kearse set career highs in catches (49), yards (685) and touchdowns (5) last season.
Feb 16 - 10:27 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports impending free agent Jermaine Kearse will not offer the Seahawks a hometown discount.

"I love my hometown, but I've put in too much hard work to give a discount," Kearse said via text message to Schefter. "My number one priority is to take care of my family's future, so I will consider all opportunities." Kearse posted career highs in catches (49), yards (685) and touchdowns (5) while starting all 16 games this season. He ended the season strong with an 11/110/2 line in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss. With a weak free agent class at receiver, guys like Kearse could get overpaid.

Jermaine Kearse caught 11-of-15 targets for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss to the Panthers.

Kearse had one 100-yard game and just five touchdowns all season coming into Sunday. He had a big game against the Panthers last playoffs, posting a 3-129-1 line in the Divisional round, but Kearse outdid himself in this one. With the Seahawks trailing 31-0 at halftime, the Seahawks were forced to throw the ball a ton after the break. Kearse got the Seahawks on the board in the third quarter with a leaping 13-yard score over CB Robert McClain. Later on, Kearse got the best of All-Pro CB Josh Norman for a three-yard score to make it 31-21 in the fourth quarter. The free agent-to-be had his best season to date, starting all 16 games and posting a 49-685-5 line in the regular season. He'll turn 26 next month and may have earned himself some money on Sunday.
Jan 17 - 4:43 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-4 targets for 18 yards in the Seahawks' Wild Card win over the Vikings.

With Doug Baldwin likely to draw Josh Norman in the Divisional Round, Kearse could be in for more targets than usual. He'll be a boom-or-bust WR3 in DFS.
Jan 10 - 5:01 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-3 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Kearse ends the regular season with 49 catches for 685 yards and five touchdowns. He'll be a volatile postseason WR3 in DFS.
