Jermaine Kearse has consistently run as a first-team receiver in three-wideout sets at Seahawks camp.
Percy Harvin is playing Z and slot receiver, with Kearse and Doug Baldwin primarily on the perimeter. (Baldwin is playing Golden Tate's old position.) At 6-foot-1, 209 with impressive high-pointing ability, 24-year-old Kearse has a chance to take a step forward this season, and is a sneaky bet to lead Seattle in touchdown receptions. He scored TDs in the NFC title game and Super Bowl 48. Jul 27 - 9:44 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught four balls for 65 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's Super Bowl stomping of Denver.

Kearse ripped off back-to-back receptions on Seattle's opening drive, good for gains of six and 12. He very nearly high-pointed a first-quarter touchdown but the pass was beautifully broken up by Broncos LB Nate Irving in the back of the end zone. Kearse later executed for a 23-yard score in the third quarter, pinballing off three would-be tacklers to give Seattle a decisive 36-0 edge. As Golden Tate enters free agency, jump-ball specialist Kearse will open the offseason as the Seahawks' No. 3 receiver behind Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin.

Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's NFC Championship Game victory over the 49ers.

Kearse's score was a 35-yard grab on 4th-and-7 early in the fourth quarter. With San Francisco jumping offsides, Seattle earned a free play. Russell Wilson took a shot at Kearse, who beat Carlos Rogers in single coverage. Kearse nearly erased the good vibes later in the period, committing a goal-line fumble that was inexplicably awarded to Seattle. The jump-ball specialist could be a Super Bowl X-factor, particularly if Percy Harvin (concussion) isn't ready to go.
Jan 19 - 11:14 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught one pass for 25 yards in Seattle's Divisional Round win over the Saints.

Kearse's second-quarter grab was his lone target of the afternoon. Kearse will be Seattle's No. 4 receiver for the NFC Championship Game if Percy Harvin (concussion) can get cleared.
Jan 11 - 8:34 PM

Jermaine Kearse (ankle) was active for Week 17, but was not targeted.

Jump-ball specialist Kearse is expected to stay in Seattle's third receiver role this postseason, as Percy Harvin (hip) may be headed to year-ending injured reserve. Kearse finished the regular season with 22 grabs for 346 yards and four touchdowns.

Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice.

Kearse wasn't known to be injured in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, so it's likely just a precaution ahead of this week's game against the Rams. Unless you're trying to fill out your roster with a bargain-basement salary, Kearse isn't a recommended option in daily leagues.
Thu, Dec 26, 2013 07:07:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

Kearse appeared to roll his ankle pretty severely, but came back into the game taped up and led the team in targets with a season-high seven. The local product out of Washington will continue to be a situational receiver and deep threat for the Seahawks.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 08:12:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught two balls for 21 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the giants.

A jump-ball specialist No. 3 receiver behind Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin, Kearse is only worth rostering in the deepest of re-draft fantasy leagues.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 04:26:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 15 yards in Seattle's Week 14 loss to the 49ers.

Kearse missed some time after landing extremely hard on his hip on his first reception, but eventually returned. Kearse drew five targets, and was the intended receiver on Russell Wilson's last-second, hail-mary interception. Kearse is a big-play threat, but is far too unreliable to be trusted for the fantasy playoffs.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 08:23:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 26 yards in Week 13 against New Orleans.

Kearse saw three targets on the night as Seattle's No. 3 receiver. He may remain in that role for the rest of the regular season if Percy Harvin (hip) is shut down for the final four regular-season games. Still, he'd be nothing more than a WR5. Kearse has some dynasty appeal as a deep threat. He's played well in limited opportunities, and Golden Tate is set to be a free agent in March.
Tue, Dec 3, 2013 12:57:00 AM

Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 13.

Kearse has been cleared from his concussion and will play in Monday night's game against the Saints. With Percy Harvin (hip) doubtful, he'll be the No. 3 receiver behind Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin.
Sat, Nov 30, 2013 06:11:00 PM

Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse (concussion) has been cleared to resume practicing.

Barring a setback, Kearse will be good to go for Monday night's game against the Saints. Kearse is a legitimate big-play threat, but No. 4 on the depth chart following the return of Percy Harvin, he has vanishingly-little fantasy appeal in re-draft leagues.
Tue, Nov 26, 2013 07:01:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse suffered a concussion in Seattle's Week 11 game against Minnesota and will not return.

The jump-ball specialist and fourth receiver didn't catch a pass before the injury. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 12, so Kearse ought to be medically cleared for the next time they play.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 05:26:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 75 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 10 win at Atlanta.

Kearse was the clear No. 3 receiver behind Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. And now that Percy Harvin (hip surgery) is expected back for Week 11, Kearse will be buried at No. 4. Still, he's shown well with his opportunities, including a 43-yard bomb for a score Sunday. There's some Dynasty appeal here with Golden Tate in the final year of his contract.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 04:45:00 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught two balls for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 9 win over Tampa Bay.

Doug Baldwin (6-75-1) was more featured in the pass game, with Kearse operating as the No. 3 wideout behind Baldwin and Golden Tate. Kearse now has three touchdowns among just ten receptions on the season. Terrific on jump balls, Kearse will be on the low-end WR3 radar until Percy Harvin (hip, PUP) comes back.
