Seahawks insider Danny O'Neil expects WR Jermaine Kearse to step into WR Sidney Rice's role. Doug Baldwin and Percy Harvin are both smaller, slot receivers. HC Pete Carroll likes big, fast receivers outside, according to O'Neil. Kearse goes 6'2, 205 pounds with 4.4 speed. The 2012 undrafted free agent has just 8 catches on 13 targets so far this year, although he's averaging 16 per and has 2 TDs. But considering Rice wasn't even a fantasy factor, there's no reason to add Kearse to redraft rosters right now.
Lions WR Jermaine Kearse suffered a broken leg and "associated injuries to his ankle" in Thursday night's preseason opener, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injuries will cost Kearse the entire 2019 campaign. He was slated to serve as the #4 WR in a run-focused offense, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here.
Jets WR Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) put in a full practice on Wednesday, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. His place on the depth chart is uncertain after missing the opener. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Kearse shouldn't be in Week 2 fantasy lineups.
Jets WR Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Lions. This was fully expected after last week's report that Kearse was expected to miss Week 1. The Jets will roll with Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor as their top 3 WRs. Anderson is the only one who can be trusted in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
Jets WR Jermaine Kearse is expected to miss Week 1 after undergoing surgery for an abdominal injury, insider Manish Mehta reports. Kearse would have opened the season with a significant role, but his absence would open up more opportunity for WRs Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor. Robby Anderson remains the best bet among Jets WRs.
The Jets have acquired WR Jermaine Kearse and a 2nd-round pick from the Seahawks in exchange for DT Sheldon Richardson. Kearse is coming off a brutal 2017 season and likely would have been cut if Seattle hadn't found a trade partner. He's, at best, a #3 NFL WR but could certainly carve out a significant role in New York's pathetic WR corps. Still, we wouldn't spend a fantasy pick on Kearse. His departure leaves Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, Tyler Lockett and Kasen Williams as the Seahawks' top 4 WRs.
