Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin told reporters after Sunday's win that WR Tyler Lockett is playing with a torn PCL. Lockett hurt the knee back in Week 2 and has totaled just 1 catch on 3 targets in the 2 games since. He gets a Week 5 bye to rest up but can't be trusted in fantasy lineups until we see him healthy and producing again.
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll expects WR Tyler Lockett (leg) to be ready for Week 1 after practicing fully last week. “He practiced well last week and did a good job competing," Carroll said. Lockett hasn't played in any of the first 3 preseason games, though, and won't play in the 4th. He's out this week to undergo a Regenokine process, an anti-inflammatory treatment used to suppress pain. LB K.J. Wright had success with it earlier this offseason, so Lockett (along with DLs Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, OL Luke Joeckel and LB Michael Wilhoite) is giving it a shot. He won't be a reliable early-season fantasy play but could emerge as an option later on. Lockett is a fine bench stash.
Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was on the field for Friday's practice, meaning he's been removed from the PUP list. He's made a successful recovery from last December's broken leg. We're big fans of Lockett's game, but he's battling Paul Richardson and Jermaine Kearse for targets behind Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham in a run-leaning offense. We're expecting Lockett to emerge as Seattle's #2 WR, but he's no more than a fantasy bench stash for now.
Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was placed on the active PUP list to open training camp. HC Pete Carroll doesn't expect him to be there for long. Lockett's recovery from last December's broken leg has seemingly gone smoothly, and he was able to put in some limited work this spring. We're expecting him to be available for the start of the regular season, but he might not begin any higher than 3rd on the WR depth chart. Lockett is just a bench stash for now.
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday that WR Tyler Lockett (leg) has a "good chance to be at full speed" for the start of training camp. Carroll added that Lockett has made "a big jump from last week to this week" in his recovery from December's broken leg. Carroll is notoriously optimistic about his injured players, so take this with a grain of salt. We'll be keeping a close eye on Lockett when camp opens next month. At this point, though, there's no reason to believe he won't be ready come Week 1.
Per the Seattle Times, the Seahawks “hope” WR Tyler Lockett can participate at the start of training camp. Lockett broke his right tibia and fibula on December 24, but he avoided ligament damage. He’s been a very limited participant in OTAs. Training camp participation is certainly something we’ll monitor closely, as it can impact his early-season role. For now, Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham represent the top-2 targets for Russell Wilson.
