Heading into Week 13 fantasy football, make sure to sit New York Jets wide receiver Jermaine Kearse against the Tennessee Titans.

Make no mistake about it, the New York Jets offense has been atrocious, to say the least. From a lack of playmakers to abysmal playcalling, that is a huge reason why the Jets are 3-8 at this point of the season. Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse has been a huge letdown this year to the point where it’s becoming laughable.

Unfortunately for Kearse, he’s developed a harsh case of the “dropsies” when it comes to passes coming his way. For the past few weeks now, Kearse has dropped many catchable passes and even with that, offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates continues to call his number come game time.

It took 12 weeks into the regular season for Kearse to score his first touchdown of the year which gives fantasy football owners a true glimpse at what he doesn’t bring to the table. Considering the Jets have a road game against the Titans on Sunday, doesn’t bode well for Kearse to be viable enough to start in any fantasy football lineup.

It’s best to sit Kearse and not even think twice about it. Not only is he inconsistent but when it matters most, he always comes up short. Kearse isn’t even worth putting in the FLEX position since he can’t be trusted at such an important point of the fantasy season.

Set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2019, it’s hard to envision the Jets wanting to bring Kearse back into the mix. With big changes likely on the horizon for the Jets coaching staff, expect the same to happen to several players on the roster who might not be in the long-term plans of the franchise.

Such is the case for Kearse who hasn’t done much of anything this season to earn him another contract to return to the Jets in the future. The veteran wide receiver will likely find a new home next season as a No. 3 option or simply as quality depth as he enters the final few years of his career.
