"Other than making plays, he's very good at teaching the young guys what to look for on the other side, which we didn't have earlier," coach Todd Bowles said this week. "He's helped them out a lot in that way. He's making plays himself and he's been a good addition for us."
Kearse is the unquestioned go-to guy in the passing game, and has made quick friends with quarterback Josh McCown. On 15 targets, he has 11 catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns.

With the Jets expected to be behind often this season, the targets could continue for Kearse. However, expectations should remain in check, as it's not exactly like he's putting up monster yardage through two weeks. He also only had five targets last week. The touchdowns will be tough to come by on possibly the league's worst team. But at least we know now who the Jets WR1 is.
