Jermaine Kearse secured just one catch for four yards on six targets Sunday in Jets’ Week 14 loss to the Broncos.
Coming off the game of his life against the Chiefs in Week 13 (career-high 157 yards), Kearse was essentially non-existent in Sunday’s defeat. Maybe that was to be expected against one of the league’s top secondaries, though it had to be a gut punch for fantasy owners who were caught point-chasing after his big game last week. With Josh McCown hurt, Kearse could be in for another rough game next week at New Orleans. Dec 10 - 8:33 PM

Jermaine Kearse corralled nine-of-10 targets for 157 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 13 win over the Chiefs.

Kearse was everywhere on Sunday, ripping off 79 yards in the first half before adding another 78 after halftime. He beat Steven Nelson on a wheel route for a 44-yard pickup in the first quarter and bettered that with a season-long 51-yard gain on a play where he broke multiple tackles in the fourth quarter. Kearse made another spectacular play in the fourth, coming up with an insane one-handed grab for a third-down conversion. The ex-Seahawk has gone ballistic over his last two games, nabbing 16-of-21 targets for 262 yards during that span. He’ll be in a tougher spot next week against a stingy Broncos secondary.

Jermaine Kearse (shoulder) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Kearse is just having his practice reps monitored. Coming off a season-high 105 yards in last week's loss to Carolina, Kearse will be in play as a WR3/4 Sunday against Kansas City.
Nov 30 - 1:56 PM

Jermaine Kearse nabbed seven-of-11 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 12 loss to the Panthers.

Kearse endured a quiet first half but came to life with five catches for 76 yards after the break including a three-yard touchdown with 5:32 remaining in the fourth quarter. He closed out the third quarter with a 42-yard catch-and-run and set up a Jets’ first-and-goal by drawing a pass interference flag later on the same drive. The 105 yards marked a season-high for Kearse, who had combined for just 116 receiving yards over his previous four games. He gets the Chiefs at home in Week 13.
Nov 26 - 5:45 PM

Jets WR Jermaine Kearse caught 4-of-8 targets for 35 yards in the team's Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

He also drew an end-zone target, but couldn't convert. Kearse has settled in as the third option in Gang Green's passing game behind Robby Anderson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. In 12- and 14-team season-long leagues, Kearse is not worth holding onto through the Jets' Week 11 bye.
Nov 12 - 5:09 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-6 targets for 38 yards in the Jets' Week 9 win over the Bills.

Now firmly behind Robby Anderson on the depth chart, Kearse has just five catches over his past three games. He has a plus Week 10 matchup in the Bucs, but is quickly fading from WR4 relevance. The Jets' offense isn't big enough for the both of Anderson and Kearse, and Anderson is the more dynamic player.
Nov 3 - 12:03 AM

Jermaine Kearse caught 2-of-5 targets for 14 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss to the Falcons.

Robby Anderson has pretty clearly stepped forward as the Jets' top wideout, putting Kearse in a weekly competition for targets with the rest of Gang Green's complementary pass catchers, including their running backs and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Kearse won't be an appealing WR4/flex option when the Jets host the Bills next.
Oct 29 - 5:30 PM

Jermaine Kearse secured one-of-four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Kearse came down with a 29-yard touchdown on New York’s opening drive but wasn’t heard from again after that. He’s now scored in two of his last three games and four times total for the season, which leads the team. Kearse will look to visit the end zone again versus the Falcons in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 6:10 PM

Jermaine Kearse absorbed all four of his targets for 79 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

His 79 yards were a season-high. Over half of those came on a 44-yard completion from Josh McCown with 6:32 remaining in the fourth quarter. Kearse has had a handful of productive weeks but hasn’t been consistent enough to warrant much more than a bench spot in fantasy leagues. He gets a road matchup against Miami in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 6:06 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught all four of his targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Browns.

Kearse caught a 24-yard touchdown in the 4th Quarter on a well-designed fake wide receiver screen pass in which he leaked out uncovered. It was the third straight game in which Kearse was held to fewer than 50-yards receiving, but leads the Jets in receiving yards (220) and touchdowns (three) on the season. He remains a lower-end flex option next week as the Jets host the Patriots.
Oct 8 - 5:07 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 4-of-7 targets for 17 yards against the Jaguars in Week 4.

He's not getting enough work in an offense that wants to run the ball. Kearse did add another end-zone target in this game, but there just won't be enough consistency -- he only had three targets last week. He'll be a popular drop candidate this week, and rightfully so.
Oct 1 - 4:54 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-3 targets for 42 yards against the Dolphins in Week 3.

After a two-TD Week 2 for Kearse, it was Robby Anderson having the big day. Kearse has 6.0 targets per game and he is getting plenty of snaps with a fair share of red-zone looks. Still, he's not really a player fantasy owners can trust on a week-to-week basis. He will have a tougher matchup against the Jaguars in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 4:43 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 4-of-5 targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns against the Raiders in Week 2.

You could call him the big fish in the little pond of the Jets receiver corps. Kearse led all of the offensive weapons with his 49 snaps on the 56 plays, and Josh McCown looked for him on shorter and longer routes. His first TD came on a 34-yard ball down the sideline on third down, and his second one was for 11 yards. The Jets defense has the look of a turnstile, so they'll be playing behind from a lot this year. Kearse is worth a speculative look in most leagues, but it'll be hard to start him and expect much upside.
Sep 17 - 7:52 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 7-of-9 targets for 59 yards in Week 1 against Buffalo.

Kearse was Josh McCown's No. 1 option despite coming over in a trade earlier this month. He led the Jets in both receiving and targets. Kearse played mostly in the slot, but could see more time outside if Jeremy Kerley is active next week. None of the Jets receivers should be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Sep 10 - 5:09 PM

The Record's Andy Vasquez expects Jets WR Jermaine Kearse to start on Sunday.

Acquired from the Seahawks over the weekend, Kearse is still learning the playbook, but the Jets do not have the luxury of letting him take it slow. On the bright side, Kearse says there is a lot of "similar stuff" to what he ran in college. It was always going to be difficult to trust a Jets receiver, but Kearse's addition makes Robby Anderson almost unplayable until the situation shakes out.
