Kearse snagged five of seven targets for 59 yards during Sunday's 26-6 loss to New England.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse had a brief fall-off in Weeks 14 and 15 when he caught just four total passes for 32 yards, but ended 2017 right with back-to-back games with five receptions. Kearse ended up being a great find for the Jets following a late-offseason trade, finishing the year with 65 catches and 810 yards. He has one year remaining on his contract for a relative bargain of $5 million.

Kearse (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots after practicing fully Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse has had his moments this season, but his fantasy value has taken a hit since Bryce Petty took over at QB for the Jets. After putting up big numbers in Weeks 12 and 13 with Josh McCown at the helm of the offense, Kearse has combined for just nine catches for 74 yards over his last three outings. Kearse thus profiles as a Week 17 fantasy dart with the Patriots needing a win to clinch the AFC's top playoff seed.

Kearse (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse's back-to-back absences from practices to begin Week 17 preparations cloud his availability for the season finale against the Patriots. In the event Kearse is able to return to the practice field Friday to offer more optimism about his chances of suiting up Sunday, he won't make for an attractive fantasy option after struggling to produce with Bryce Petty under center the past three weeks. In those contests, Kearse has been held to nine receptions for 74 yards on 19 targets.

Kearse missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse has disappeared along with the rest of the Jets passing game, catching only nine balls for 74 yards on 19 targets the past three weeks. Even if he ends up being fine from a health standpoint, Kearse will be stuck playing with Bryce Petty against a solid New England defense.

Kearse caught three of five targets for 28 yards during Sunday's loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse put up back-to-back games with more than 100 yards in Weeks 12 and 13, but the injury loss of quarterback Josh McCown immediately slowed any positive fantasy production. Kearse continues to be one of the most reliable options in the passing game for the Jets, but it's tough to see him making a meaningful impact over the final two games with Bryce Petty under center.

Kearse caught one of six targets for four yards during Sunday's 23-0 loss to Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse entered Sunday with 262 yards in his previous two games, but the Jet flew into Denver's No Fly Zone on Sunday. The four yards were a season low for Kearse and, after a minor hot streak, it looks doubtful that things will get much easier for the veteran target. The Jets end their season with three straight games against teams currently leading their division and Kearse will be catching passes from Bryce Petty, who managed just two completions on nine attempts against Denver on Sunday.

Kearse brought in nine of 10 targets for 157 yards in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran's reception and receiving yardage totals both were team highs, as Kearse eclipsed the century mark for the second straight contest. Kearse also brought in a season-high 51-yard reception Sunday, and his overall production propelled his season catch total to a career-best 51. The six-year veteran is also just nine yards away from surpassing the high-water mark of 685 receiving yards he established in 2015 while with the Seahawks. Given his sizable role in an increasingly efficient Jets offense, Kearse's fantasy value has arguably never been higher. He'll look to build in Sunday's explosion against the Broncos in Week 14.

Kearse (shoulder) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

After logging limited practice sessions Wednesday and Thursday, Kearse returned to a full practice Friday. He'll look build off a strong effort in Week 12, in which he hauled in seven of a season-high 11 targets for 105 yards (also a season-high) and a TD. Overall, he's caught 42 passes for 520 yards and five TDs through 11 games, numbers that give Kearse value in deeper formats as he works in tandem with fellow key wideout Robby Anderson.

Kearse (shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

We'll track Kearse's status as the week rolls along, but so far there's nothing to suggest that his status for Sunday's game against the Chiefs is in danger. Kearse hauled in seven of his 11 targets for 105 yards and a TD in this past Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Panthers.

Kearse nabbed seven of 11 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-27 loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Kearse's three-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter brought the Jets within a score late. The Jets took on a Carolina team ranked among the top 5 defenses in the league against the both and the pass and the run, but you wouldn't know it by the box score. Kearse had arguably his best game as a Jet with season highs in targets and yards. He gets a matchup against a vulnerable Chiefs defense next week.
