Jason Avant is a free agent this offseason, but he hopes to keep playing despite turning 33 in April. He finished 2015 with the Chiefs, but he had only 15 catches for 119 yards on 24 targets during the season. We'll see where he lands this year, but he should not be drafted in the majority of leagues.
Avant finished the 2015 season with just 15 catches for 119 yards on 24 targets. The veteran wideout struggled to find the field consistently, and averaged less than a grab per game as a result. He signed just one-year contract with the Chiefs before the 2015 campaign, and could be a candidate for retirement in the offseason if he can't find work elsewhere.
Wilson caught both of the two passes thrown his way Sunday for 26 yards against the Chargers. Avant continues to work in a limited role, but did see 34 snaps to rank third among receivers Sunday. He'll face a decent matchup next Sunday against a Bills team allowing 251.9 passing yards per game, but doesn't present a reliable option given the usual offensive gameplan.
Avant saw limited action in Sunday's game against the Steelers, collecting two passes for 11 yards. Avant hauled in both of his targets on the day, but saw limited action despite being the Chiefs third option at receiver in the absence of Jeremy Maclin (concussion). He'll likely continue to see the field in a limited fashion, but won't see enough volume to be worthy of fantasy consideration in most formats.
Chiefs wide receiver Jason Avant caught four passes for 43 yards in Sunday's game against the Bengals. Avant's four grabs and 43 yards marks his highest output through the first four weeks this season. Regardless, he's still just totaled 51 yards on six catches this season, and remains on the periphery of the Chiefs' offensive plans.
Chiefs receiver Jason Avant caught just two passes for eight yards in the defeat to Green Bay on Monday night. The veteran was targeted four times. The fact that the Chiefs were behind the entire second half likely played into his boosted playing time, however, so he'll likely continue seeing limited action, with a ceiling near the 38 snaps (54 percent) he saw against the Packers.
