Lions are giving former Jets’ WR Jermaine Kearse a one-year $1.35 million deal with a max value of $2.3 million, including $350k guaranteed, per source.
Kearse is coming off a down year with the Jets, posting just 371 receiving yards on 37 catches. He is familiar with his new OC in Detroit, as he spent 2012-2016 with Darrell Bevell with the Seahawks. Kearse could see some legit work with the Lions, as their WR depth chart dips significantly after Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.
NYJ WR Jermaine Kearse - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 at Miami Dolphins
With both Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson out with injuries, Jermaine Kearse is the defacto No. 1 receiver for New York. Last week, he only had three receptions for 30 yards and playing with rookie QB Sam Darnold, it doesn't appear that any Jets receiver is going to be consistent on a weekly basis.
Kearse faces a Miam defense that is 21st in aFPA to wide receivers. Even with a favorable matchup, he isn't much of a fantasy option. Keep Kearse on the bench for Week 9.
