Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has been activated from the COVID list. He should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Bears. Lockett averaged 7 targets, 4.2 catches, 89 yards and .4 TDs in his last 5 outings before missing this past week's game vs. the Rams.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett did not make it back from the COVID list in time to face the Rams tonight. He, RB Alex Collins and CB D.J. Reed are the biggest names who failed to test out and will miss the game. Seattle has elevated RB Josh Johnson from the practice squad to fill a roster spot. D.K. Metcalf should see increased target share, with Freddie Swain and Dee Eskridge expected to join him as the top 3 wideouts.

This week's Seahawks-Rams game has been moved from Sunday to Tuesday, according to multiple reports, as the Rams deal with a rash of COVID positives. This game won't be on the DFS main slate but will still count for Week 15 in season-long leagues. We'll see if RB Darrell Henderson, WR Odell Beckham and WR Tyler Lockett are able to clear COVID protocols in time for the game.

Update: This game will kick off at 7 pm ET on Tuesday.

The Seahawks on Thursday placed WR Tyler Lockett and RB Alex Collins on the COVID list. That almost certainly knocks out both players for Sunday's game against the Rams. Rookie Dee Eskridge and Freddie Swain look like the next 2 WRs up, but each is obviously a giant step down from Lockett. His absence figures to boost D.K. Metcalf's target outlook. Collins' absence takes 1 challenger away from Rashaad Penny in a backfield that remains a little crowded (with Adrian Peterson potentially returning from injury).

The Seahawks placed QB Russell Wilson (finger) on IR. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games. Seattle then has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is the earliest Wilson could return. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport recently called a Week 10 return the "best-case scenario" for Wilson. QB Geno Smith is in line to start the next 3 games vs. Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Jacksonville.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the 49ers. He was limited in Wednesday's practice, sidelined on Thursday but a full participant on Friday. There have been no reports about a limited role for Lockett today.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hip) is expected to play vs. the 49ers today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lockett was limited in Wednesday's practice, sidelined on Thursday and then a full participant on Friday. He carries a bit more risk than usual but remains a high-upside fantasy play.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the 49ers. He was limited in Wednesday's practice, sidelined on Thursday and then a full participant on Friday. That points to Lockett playing on Sunday, but you'll need to check back that morning to make sure that's the case.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hip) did not practice on Thursday. That followed a limited practice on Wednesday. So Lockett either suffered a setback or got Thursday off. We'll have a better idea of his Week 4 status when Seattle's final injury report comes out Friday afternoon.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's on the injury report with a hip, rather than the knee it looked like he injured late in last week's loss to the Vikings. Regardless, Lockett seems to be on track to play vs. the 49ers this weekend.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett appeared to injure his knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game in Minnesota. He was able to get off the field under his own power. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Lockett was able to return to the game.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is dealing with a groin injury. He’s been held out of team drills over the past 3 days, per beat writer Gregg Bell. HC Pete Carroll said the team is just being “careful” with the veteran WR. There’s no cause for concern right now; the groin is simply something to monitor.

The Seahawks and WR Tyler Lockett agreed to a 4-year, $69.2 million extension with $37 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. He's now signed with Seattle through the 2025 season and is the league's 10th-highest-paid WR in average annual salary. Lockett has finished 16th, 13th and then 8th among WR in PPR points over the last 3 years -- although he's been maddeningly inconsistent at times. His forward-looking fantasy value hinges on just how often the Seahawks are willing to chuck it and whether QB Russell Wilson remains in town.

The Seahawks are hiring Shane Waldron as their new OC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We can't say we know much about the guy, to be honest. Waldron spent the past 4 seasons as passing-game coordinator/QBs coach for the Rams under Sean McVay. He also spent time with Washington and New England. But his only OC experience came at Buckingham Browne & Nichols High School in 2011. We've heard that Seattle wants to be a run-leaning offense going forward, but it can't be bad news for Russell Wilson and his WRs that the 'Hawks hired a former passing-game coordinator to call the plays.

The Seahawks have fired OC Brian Schottenheimer. ESPN's Adam Schefter cites "philosophical differences" between Schottenheimer and HC Pete Carroll. We assume that's referring to the offense's run/pass split, which has long been a topic of debate in Seattle. The 2020 Seahawks offense was a juggernaut over the 1st half of the season, averaging 34.3 points and 414 total yards per game on a 59.3% pass rate. They sunk to 24.3 points and 335 yards in the 2nd half on a 56.6% pass rate. We'll see who the 'Hawks go with as their new OC. Russell Wilson, D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett's fantasy stocks are on the line.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett left to get checked for a concussion in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Giants. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Lockett has been cleared to return.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Cardinals. He suffered what HC Pete Carroll called a minor knee sprain this past Sunday and only got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It adds some risk to Lockett's Week 11 outlook, but he's almost impossible to bench in season-long leagues after exploding for a 15-200-3 line in the 1st meeting with Arizona.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals after getting in a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Pete Carroll said Lockett "looked fine" and is expected to play. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is dealing with a knee sprain, HC Pete Carroll said Monday. Carroll added that it's not serious and labeled Lockett "day to day," but it's a trickier situation with Seattle playing Arizona on Thursday night. We'll monitor Lockett's status over the next few days. If he's unable to play vs. the Cardinals, WR David Moore would become a nice spot start.
