Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse is likely to be an every-down receiver for the team in 2015. He is a versatile receiver that excels at blocking.
Huddle Up: After starting a combined seven games over his first two seasons in Seattle, Kearse doubled that total with 14 a year ago and finished second on the team with a career-high 38 catches for 537 yards and a TD. He should see his numbers improve across the board, but it's going to be tough for him to reach stanard-league fantasy relevance on a run-first team which also has added new competition for targets in free-agent TE Jimmy Graham and third-round WR Tyler Lockett.

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse has signed his restricted free-agent tender. The Seahawks had put a second-round tender on the wideout.
Huddle Up: Kearse finished second on the team in targets (69), receptions (38) and receiving yards (537) last season, but that obviously didn't amount to much fantasy production given the Seahawks' run-heavy offense and the spread-the-targets-around approach in the passing game. It figures to be even more jumbled this season with TE Jimmy Graham and third-round WR Tyler Lockett joining the mix along with the anticipated emergence of second-year wideouts Paul Richardson and Chris Matthews, last season's out-of-nowhere Super Bowl hero.

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse received a restricted free-agent tender of $2.356 million. It was a second-round tender.
Huddle Up: The undrafted Kearse is clearly a WR still on the rise as his production has increased in each of his three seasons -- all with the 'Hawks -- and the team clearly values his upside. He finished second on the squad with 38 catches for 537 yards and a TD this past year but stepped it up even further in the playoffs with seven receptions for 209 yards and a pair of scores. The Seahawks have featured a run-dominated offense during Kearse's tenure, but we could possibly see a shift if Marshawn Lynch decides to retire this offseason.
