Jermaine Kearse caught 5-of-6 targets for 78 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

The 78 yards were Kearse's most of the season. He might have gone over 100, but couldn't corral what would have been a long gain on his sixth target. Kearse's big-play upside is well established, but he doesn't get nearly enough looks to be on the WR3/4 radar in fantasy leagues.
Dec 14 - 7:43 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-7 targets for 37 yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Eagles.

Kearse's line was basically identical to his Week 13 numbers (3/34). Kearse's scoreless drought is now at nine games. He's not a realistic WR5.
Dec 7 - 8:13 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-5 targets for 34 yards Week 13 against the 49ers.

Kearse had a nice 17-yard grab but is simply not consistent enough and not getting enough volume to be a weekly fantasy contributor. Kearse has some upside against a burnable Eagles secondary Week 14, but he will be nothing more than a dart throw.
Nov 27 - 11:48 PM

Jermaine Kearse (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 13 against the 49ers.

Kearse is a boom-or-bust WR4/5 capable of winning an occasional jump ball, but isn't a reliable fantasy option in the Seahawks' run-centric offense.
Nov 26 - 4:32 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught one pass for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

Kearse predictably found nowhere to run against Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie. He saw just two targets and was spotted on the sidelines stretching out his shoulder at one point. Kearse will be a poor fantasy bet again on Thanksgiving at San Francisco -- he's been under 20 yards in three of the last five games.
Nov 23 - 7:28 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 5-of-9 targets for 54 yards against the Chiefs Week 11.

The receptions and targets were season highs for Kearse, who now has 124 yards receiving over the last two weeks. Despite the uptick in usage, Kearse remains nothing more than a poor desperation play in the Seahawks' struggling passing game.
Nov 16 - 5:25 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 70 yards in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Giants.

Kearse finally got open behind a defense for the first time in three weeks, hauling in a 60-yard bomb from a rolling Russell Wilson. Other than that, it was more of the same for the high-snap count but low-target Kearse. He'll be a poor dart throw against the Chiefs' excellent pass defense in Week 11.
Nov 9 - 7:51 PM

Jermaine Kearse managed one reception for seven yards on seven targets in the Seahawks' Week 9 win over the Raiders.

His most notable play was recovering an onside kick to end the game. Kearse was targeted in the end zone early in the fourth quarter, but Russell Wilson overshot him. Kearse has now come up short in back-to-back plus matchups with Carolina and Oakland. He'll be a tough sell as even a low-end WR3 option when Seattle takes on the Giants in Week 10. Kearse plays a ton of snaps, but doesn't get separation, and when he doesn't win contested catches, he's not going to put anything into the box score.
Nov 2 - 8:06 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 8 win a Carolina.

Kearse played a ton as a starter, but was a complete non-factor on two targets. It's the curse of playing in a spread-the-wealth passing attack. Even with Percy Harvin gone and the Seahawks facing the Raiders at home next week, Kearse will be a touchdown-dependent kind of WR5.
Oct 26 - 5:12 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 50 yards in the Seahawks' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Kearse was targeted seven times on the afternoon. He had a 29-yard catch-and-run as his biggest play of the day. The seven targets are encouraging, however, as he's likely to see an uptick in action with Percy Harvin out of town. Kearse is the big-play threat for the Seahawks. He's merely a WR5/6 flier.
Oct 19 - 5:27 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 62 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Cowboys.

Kearse led the team in catches, yards and targets (7). There's still nothing to get excited about. Kearse has been under 25 yards in three of five games this season as Russell Wilson spreads the ball around weekly.
Oct 12 - 7:52 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught a 15-yard touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Redskins.

Kearse was targeted just twice on the night, but cashed in his lone catch for an opening-drive score down the seam when he was left wide open. Kearse doesn't see nearly enough targets to warrant fantasy consideration in 12-team leagues. He's just a touchdown scorer and occasional deep threat, even though he plays more than 80 percent of the offensive snaps on a weekly basis.
Oct 7 - 12:42 AM

Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

Kearse lost playing time to Bryan Walters and ended up with just two targets. The Seahawks are rotating receivers even heavier than usual so far, leaving Kearse as a drop candidate heading into the Week 4 bye.
Sep 21 - 8:32 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 4-of-5 targets for 61 yards in Seattle's Week 2 loss to the Chargers.

Kearse led the Seahawks in receiving one week after catching one pass for eight yards. The jump-ball specialist is too inconsistent to be trusted as a WR4.
