Kearse (Achilles) finished the 2018 season with 37 catches for 371 yards and one touchdown. Kearse took a major step back after recording career highs across the board with 65 catches, 810 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with the Jets. The interest in Kearse as an unrestricted free agent this offseason is likely to be tepid, and he's unlikely to work his way onto the fantasy radar in most formats regardless of where he lands.
Kearse (Achilles) won't play Sunday against the Patriots. Nor will Quincy Enunwa (ankle), which sets the stage for Robby Anderson to head the Jets' Week 17 wideout corps, with Rich Cimini of ESPN.com suggesting that Andre Roberts and Deontay Burnett figure to serve as the team's No. 2 and No. 3 receivers in the team's season finale. Kearse, who turns 29 in February, is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason on the heels of a 2018 season in which he logged 37 catches (on 76 targets) for 371 yards and a TD in 14 games.
Kearse (Achilles) wasn't seen at the early portion of Friday's practice, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. What appears to be Kearse's third straight absence at practice this week puts him on track to miss the season finale at New England. The 28-year-old suffered the injury Week 16 against the Packers and underwent X-rays on Monday. Quincy Enunwa (ankle) has been similarly absent this week, leaving little depth at wide receiver behind top target Robby Anderson.
Kearse (Achilles) wasn't on the field for the start of Thursday's practice, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Kearse is thus on track to log no practice reps for the second straight day and is looking unlikely to be available for Sunday's season finale against the Patriots. Unless Kearse changes the narrative by practicing Friday in some capacity, the Jets will likely have little in the way of quality depth behind top wideout Robby Anderson in Week 17. The remaining three healthy receivers on the roster -- Andre Roberts, Charone Peake and Deontay Burnett -- have combined for 14 catches between them this season.
Kearse (Achilles) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. The same applies to Quincy Enunwa (ankle), whose chances of playing Sunday against the Patriots seem slim. Kearse's Week 17 availability remains more uncertain, but the fact that he hasn't been placed on injured reserve suggests that his Achilles injury isn't a major one. If Kearse is ultimately ruled out for the season finale, Andre Roberts, Charone Peake and Deontay Burnett could all be in line for more work behind clear No. 1 receiver Robby Anderson.
