Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He’s been dealing with this hamstring injury since Week 7 but didn’t practice all week for the first time this season. Lockett comes with elevated risk today, but he’s available if you were waiting on him.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Rams today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lockett is listed as questionable after missing practice all week. "The Seahawks still want to work out Tyler Lockett pregame before deciding he will play because it is a hamstring injury and he didn’t practice last week," Schefter adds. "But Lockett has a history of playing with and through injury." If you're hoping to use Lockett today, it'd still be wise to have a late-game alternative lined up. We won't get Seattle's inactives until a little before 3 pm ET.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. He’s been on the injury report with a hamstring injury since Week 7. But, unlike those times, Lockett didn’t practice at all this week. "He ran today though, he worked out and did all that with the trainers, but we didn't run him in practice," HC Pete Carroll said Friday. "He'll run again tomorrow. It's day-to-day right now." We’ll look for further updates on Lockett’s status but won’t get Seattle’s inactives until 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He's been out or limited each of the past four Wednesdays and played each week. He should be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Rams.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf exited Week 10 with 7 catches, 98 yards, and a 25.5% target share. The 16.8 PPR points are his second most on what's been a frustrating season overall. Sunday, though, he was able to take advantage of perhaps the league’s worst secondary. (Rookie CB Emmanuel Forbes was even ejected in the first half.) Metcalf also benefited from 47 Geno Smith pass attempts. Look for more WR2 fantasy lines in the future, as Metcalf has the benefit of an excellent WR schedule.

Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba (hip) is not listed on the final injury report for this weekend’s game vs. the Commanders. He was a full participant in Thursday and Friday’s practices after being sidelined on Wednesday. JSN will be ready for his usual role this weekend.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (chest) is not listed on the final Week 10 injury report. He was a full-go on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday’s practice. The chest shouldn’t be a factor in this weekend’s game vs. the Commanders.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (chest) returned to a full practice on Thursday. It doesn't look like the chest issue will be a factor in Sunday's game vs. Washington. We'll check back on Walker's status when Seattle releases its final injury report on Friday afternoon.

Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba (hip) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll be ready to rock for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders' league-worst WR defense.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (chest) did not practice on Wednesday. He played just 49% of Seattle's offensive snaps this past week, but it didn't seem like an injury had anything to do with that. We'll see if Walker is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Seahawks WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any other details on the injury or Smith-Njigba's chances of playing vs. the Commanders this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Commanders QB Sam Howell threw for 325 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT in Sunday's win over the Patriots. He also took a more-reasonable-than-usual 3 sacks in the game. It marks the second straight week of at least 325 yards for Howell, who gets a plus matchup with the Seahawks in Week 10 as well. A home date with the Giants in Week 11 looks trickier. They've been the fifth-toughest scoring matchup for QBs on the season, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. And the Giants just held Washington to 7 points while sacking Howell six times in their Week 7 meeting. Another positive outing for Howell in Week 10, however, could make him tough to leave out of the top 12 for that week. After that sit a negative matchup with Dallas and a positive spot vs. Miami before a Week 14 bye.

Seahawks rookie WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba led the team with 6 receptions and 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. His 7 targets trailed only WR Tyler Lockett's 8. Seattle kept three WRs on the field more than usual in a game that found the Seahawks down 17-3 at the half and 30-3 by the end of the third quarter. Four of JSN's receptions came after Baltimore had pushed the lead to 30-3. The rookie has seen more usage since the Week 5 bye, but this game likely elevated that further with such negative game script for Seattle. JSN still shouldn't be in starting consideration for most leagues going forward, though he's closer since the bye than he was before. A Week 10 matchup with Washington adds upside to everyone in the passing game.

We didn't expect Seahawks QB Geno Smith to have a good game against the Ravens on Sunday. But he was bad enough that we might need to worry about Smith even in better matchups. He completed just 13 of 28 attempts at Baltimore, taking 4 sacks, tossing 1 INT and losing a fumble. Smith's 157 yards marked his third game this season with less than 200. And he how has 6 INTs vs. just 4 TD passes over the past four games. Smith's next two matchups look positive, including a Week 10 spot against Washington, which entered Sunday as the second-best scoring matchup for QBs by our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Don't be surprised if Smith still doesn't get into the top 12 when we update our Week 10 rankings Tuesday. But fantasy teams will be losing Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes, and Tua Tagovailoa to byes. So Smith might actually make sense as your starter in plenty of cases.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III managed just 16 yards on 9 carries in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Ravens. The 1.8 yards per carry marked the second-lowest average of Walker's career, while it was the second straight game in which he has logged single-digit carries. Also for the second straight game, RB Zach Charbonnet played more snaps. It's tough to know how much we can draw from a game Seattle lost 37-3. But we certainly can't ignore the past two weeks of usage. Walker becomes a shakier fantasy play in the short term, and the remaining schedule could exacerbate that issue. It's the league's worst RB schedule from Week 10 on, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Charbonnet is still worth stashing, though, given his more favorable passing-game role. And a Walker injury would give Charbonnet control of backfield work.

The Athletic's Dianna Russini hears that, "there is a strong belief in the building that the Commanders have found their franchise quarterback in Sam Howell, and now it’s about building for 2024." Howell has taken too many sacks this season but has completed 67% of his passes at a decent 7.0 yards per attempt. He's certainly not a finished product, but it sounds like Howell has shown enough to at least be Washington's starter in 2024. He's a solid hold in dynasty leagues.

Seahawks WRs D.K. Metcalf (hip) and Tyler Lockett (hamstring) are off the final Week 9 injury report. Both guys were full participants in Friday’s practice and should be ready for their usual roles in this weekend’s game vs. the Ravens.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (hip) did not practice on Thursday. That follows a full practice on Wednesday. It's unclear if Metcalf just got the day or suffered a setback. Check back tomorrow to see how Metcalf is listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It's an upgrade over last week, when he didn't practice at all on Thursday. Lockett should be ready for his usual role in this weekend's game vs. the Ravens.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He didn't practice last Wednesday or Thursday before returning to a full practice on Friday and then posting an 8-81-1 line in the win over the Browns. Lockett should be fine for this weekend's game against Baltimore.
