Jermaine Kearse WR SEA 13 Days

Kearse caught one pass for eight yards on three targets Thursday in Seattle's season-opening win against the Packers.

It was the Percy Harvin show for the most part, and Kearse never got much involved in the passing game. It will be interesting to see how that plays out. The Seahawks passed 28 times, but only 11 went to the three non-Harvin wide receivers. Kearse should get more targets and have bigger games, but his weekly production likely will be inconsistent.

Kearse did not catch a pass in Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.

While the Seahawks obviously don't figure to do a ton of passing, they still need someone to serve as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin. Kearse is the clear favorite, albeit for a role that doesn't figure to come with many targets. That said, he's shown big-play ability in the past, and is just one injury away from potentially playing 50-plus snaps per game.

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.

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.

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 rewarded to Seattle. The jump-ball specialist could be a Super Bowl X-factor, particularly if Percy Harvin (concussion) isn't ready to go.

Jermaine Kearse caught one pass for 25 yards in Seattle's Divisional Round win over the Saints.

Kearse's second-quarter grab was his lone target of the afternoon. Kearse will be Seattle's No. 4 receiver for the NFC Championship Game if Percy Harvin (concussion) can get cleared.

Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice.

Kearse wasn't known to be injured in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, so it's likely just a precaution ahead of this week's game against the Rams. Unless you're trying to fill out your roster with a bargain-basement salary, Kearse isn't a recommended option in daily leagues.

Jermaine Kearse caught three passes for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

Kearse appeared to roll his ankle pretty severely, but came back into the game taped up and led the team in targets with a season-high seven. The local product out of Washington will continue to be a situational receiver and deep threat for the Seahawks.

Jermaine Kearse caught two balls for 21 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the giants.

A jump-ball specialist No. 3 receiver behind Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin, Kearse is only worth rostering in the deepest of re-draft fantasy leagues.

Jermaine Kearse caught two passes for 26 yards in Week 13 against New Orleans.

Kearse saw three targets on the night as Seattle's No. 3 receiver. He may remain in that role for the rest of the regular season if Percy Harvin (hip) is shut down for the final four regular-season games. Still, he'd be nothing more than a WR5. Kearse has some dynasty appeal as a deep threat. He's played well in limited opportunities, and Golden Tate is set to be a free agent in March.
