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.
Sep 14 - 8:30 PM

The Seahawks want to get Jermaine Kearse more involved on offense this week against San Diego.

After seeing Michael Floyd beat Chargers RCB Shareece Wright for a 63-yard bomb in Week 1, the Seahawks want to exploit the Bolts deep. Kearse secured just 1-of-3 targets for an eight-yard gain last week against the Packers, but he played 54-of-70 snaps and is already a huge part of the offense. Deep balls and end-zone jump balls are Kearse's specialty. He's a Week 2 sleeper.
Sep 12 - 12:30 PM

Jermaine Kearse caught 1-of-3 targets for eight yards in Seattle's Week 1 win over the Packers.

A deep-ball specialist, Kearse couldn't corral his only deep look. Kearse will make big plays this season, but will struggle for volume. He's a WR5/6.
Sep 5 - 12:43 AM

Jermaine Kearse secured 4-of-5 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' third preseason game Friday night versus Chicago.

Kearse was targeted in the red zone in the first quarter, but couldn't secure Russell Wilson's throw. He rebounded for a 12-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. As Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin are limited from a size standpoint, 6-foot-1, 207-pound Kearse is a solid bet to lead the Seahawks' wideout corps in TD catches this year. Kearse has five catches for 74 yards and the touchdown through three preseason games. He's in the WR5 hunt.
Aug 23 - 12:21 AM

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.
Feb 2 - 10:27 PM

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.
