  • Jets' Jermaine Kearse: Reels in four passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kearse converted eight targets into four catches and 35 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to Tampa Bay. Kearse looked like an unheralded, late-offseason find earlier in the season with three games of at least 50 yards and three scores in the Jets' first six games. He has since scored just once in four games and has failed to tally 40 yards in game. Some of that high-flying luster for Kearse, and the Jets as a whole, seems to be slipping as the team has lost four of its last five. A more run-focused approach and the emergence of young targets like Robby Anderson are taking their toll on Kearse's production.

  • Kearse caught two of five targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Falcons. While his touchdown in Week 7 at Miami helped overshadow an otherwise pedestrian effort, Kearse had no such cover Sunday, as he's now caught three of nine targets for 43 yards in his last two games combined. Robby Anderson led the Jets with six catches on six targets for 104 yards and a touchdown Sunday, while Matt Forte (six), Austin Seferian-Jenkins (five) and Bilal Powell (three) each had more receptions than Kearse. The weather wasn't particularly helpful for the passing game, as it was pouring rain for most of the day, but Kearse's decrease in targets from earlier this season certainly has to be concerning. He'll look to bounce back Thursday against the Bills, though it won't be an easy opportunity for a breakout performance.

  • Jets' Jermaine Kearse: Reels in touchdown
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kearse nabbed one of four targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to Miami. Kearse got the Jets on the board early in the first quarter with a quick streak down the field for a 29-yard touchdown. The touchdown was his team-leading fourth, and the late-offseason acquisition is one of just 17 receivers in the league to have at least four touchdowns thus far this season. Only five have reached that mark with fewer receptions. He seems to have settled into a set role on the team with exactly four targets in three consecutive games.

  • Jets' Jermaine Kearse: Finds end zone in Week 5 win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kearse brought in all four of his targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Browns. Kearse got loose on the right side of the field behind the Browns defense with 8:30 remaining in the fourth quarter, bringing in a 24-yard scoring dart from Josh McCown to cap an impressive eight-play, 97-yard march. The veteran wideout now has three scores on the campaign, along with at least four catches in four of his first five contests. The trio of touchdowns already serve as the third-highest haul of his career, as the 27-year-old appears to be thriving in his first opportunity to serve as a true No. 1 receiver. He'll look to continue making an impact against the Patriots in a Week 6 divisional showdown.

  • Jets' Jermaine Kearse: Targeted seven times in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kearse caught four of seven passes for 17 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over Jacksonville. Acquired late in the preseason, Kearse leads the Jets in catches, targets and touchdowns through the first quarter of the season. Be careful not to overvalue him, however. Robby Anderson is becoming the team's big-play threat, and their recipe for success as of late has been to pound the rock. Kearse might be New York's most reliable target, but that still makes him no more reliable for fantasy purposes than another team's second or third option.
