Jets WR Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) took full practice reps all week.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

In his first season with the Jets, Kearse set career-highs in targets, receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. He was kind of hit or miss in Seattle but was very consistent in New York. He brings a veteran presence with him on the field and will either be a favorite again of the veteran QB (Josh McCown) or a reliable receiver for the rookie (Sam Darnold).

Fantasy Downside

Even with the impressive performance in 2017, Kearse will face more competition for targets this season. Quincy Enunwa is healthy and the Jets also brought in Terrelle Pryor, making it difficult to decipher what will be Kearse's role. It's also questionable how good the Jets offense will be overall.

2018 Bottom Line

Kearse is not going in many drafts, but that is probably a mistake by most owners. He is our No. 68 ranked receiver, making him a solid depth option. Target him in the 16th or 17th round.
