Kearse did not catch either of the two targets thrown to him in Saturday's preseason opener.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Kearse didn't play much. The throws that missed him were off target, as well. He's slated to the No. 2 WR again this season.

Kearse agreed to a three-year contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

After briefly testing the open market as a free agent, Kearse will return to the Seahawks on a three-year deal. Kearse turned in his best season as a pro in 2015, hauling in 49 catches on 68 targets for 685 yards and five touchdown while managing to play in every game. Still, Doug Baldwin's presence plus Tyler Lockett's increasing role could put a cap on Kearse's production even if Seattle turns to a more pass-centric approach on offense with Marshawn Lynch retiring this offseason.

Kearse nabbed 11 of 15 targets for 110 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse got Seattle on the board in the third quarter on a 13-yard fade route and then hauled in a second touchdown in the back of the end zone on a scramble play. Kearse had just three touchdowns entering Week 16 of the regular season, but scored in his final four games, including Sunday. The fourth-year receiver is a free agent and may not be a priority to bring back given Seattle having Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett and Jimmy Graham on the roster. If Kearse does return, look for him to be a dangerous red-zone threat in Seattle's new pass-focused offense.

Kearse grabbed three of four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse has now been targeted at least four times in six of his last eight games dating back to Week 11 of the regular season. The fourth-year receiver has scored three touchdowns during that span, well behind Tyler Lockett's five and Doug Baldwin's 12. Kearse has also trailed his fellow receivers in targets during the period with 39 as compared to Baldwin's 60 and Lockett's 45. Long story short, with the way that he's been playing, Kearse should not be shut out the way he was in Seattle's Week 6 meeting against Carolina, but he is no better than third in the pecking order of the Seahawks' pass offense.

Kearse snatched all three of his targets in Sunday's win over the Cardinals, tallying 34 yards and a score.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse entered Week 16 with just three scores in 14 games, but he has scored in consecutive weeks to close the season. Kearse preceded those two games with 14 catches for 184 yards in his previous two contests. Kearse, and Seattle's passing offense, is on a roll, but gets a tough matchup against Minnesota to open the playoffs. Though Seattle dominated the team's Week 13 meeting, Kearse was held catchless.

Kearse (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse is out there if you need him Sunday and with the surging Seahawks on a roll of late, he's recorded back-to-back seven-catch efforts for the team.

Kearse (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse was limited at Wednesday's practiced, but he practiced fully Thursday and is good to go for Week 16. Kearse has picked up the pace of late with 14 catches and 184 yards over his last two games, and he could be even more active Sunday in the event that fellow wideout Doug Baldwin (hamstring) -- who is listed as questionable -- is unable to play.

Kearse (calf) was a full practice participant Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the unhinged showing, Kearse appears to have been contained to individual drills Wednesday as a precautionary measure. However, his stature could be elevated in the Seahawks' offense Sunday, as Doug Baldwin (hamstring) is facing a potential game-time decision. Kearse would be the defacto No. 1 wide receiver with Baldwin out of the lineup, meaning looks from Russell Wilson could be plentiful for a player that boasts 10.2 YPT this season.

Kearse (calf) was limited at practice Wednesday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the midst of the Russell Wilson to Doug Baldwin show of late, Kearse has made a consistent impact outside of a zero-catch performance in Week 13 at Minnesota, accruing 18 receptions (on 22 targets) for 231 yards and two touchdowns over the last four games. If his health allows it this Sunday, Kearse will seek additional output against a Rams secondary that has given up 12.2 YPC and six touchdowns to wideouts in the past five weeks.

Kearse hauled in seven of eight targets for 74 yards in Sunday's win over the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse saw his highest share of catches and targets since Week 1 on Sunday, leading the team in the former. It was Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett who pulled down the touchdowns, however, and thus the prime fantasy points. The loss of Jimmy Graham has, surprisingly, opened up Seattle's passing attack, but Kearse remains the clear No. 3. In the two full games since Graham's season-ending injury Lockett has led the way in catches and yards with 13 and 194, respectively, while Baldwin has scored five touchdowns. Given that Kearse was held catchless in Week 13, it may be too early to get excited over a solid Week 14 performance.
