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.

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.

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.

In a somewhat surprising move, free-agent WR Jermaine Kearse has agreed to a new 3-year deal to stay with the Seahawks, according to Adam Schefter. It was also Schefter who reported before free agency opened that Kearse wasn't expecting to remain in Seattle and was "looking forward" to joining a new team. A weak WR market seemed likely to elevate his status. We'll see what the money looks like, but the practical impact for fantasy owners is that Kearse will continue to siphon targets in a lower-volume pass offense. He'll be no more than a late-round flier behind at least WRs Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. We'll see about TE Jimmy Graham's status come summer.
