Tyler Lockett Fantasy Football News 2019

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Eagles on Sunday and should be ready for his usual role.

The Seahawks ended up listing WR Tyler Lockett (shin) as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's good news after an earlier report that Lockett wasn't expected to practice. He seemingly has a good shot to play against the Eagles this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status Thursday afternoon.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) didn't practice on Wednesday, although he did participate in the walkthrough. HC Pete Carroll said that he expects Lockett to play against the Eagles this weekend -- but we wouldn't expect any different from him. We'll get another update on Lockett tomorrow.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) has been released from the hospital and is flying back to Seattle on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Expectation is, despite his leg contusion, Lockett will be ready to play vs. Philly" following the Week 11 bye, Schefter adds. We'll keep an eye on Lockett's practice participation next week, but it sounds like we'll have him for Week 12 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett didn't need surgery on his badly bruised lower leg and "should be OK." He's dealing with major swelling and spent the night in a Bay Area hospital. Lockett gets a well-timed Week 11 bye, and it sounds like he has a shot to play against the Eagles in Week 12.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett injured his lower left leg late in Monday night's game against the 49ers and missed overtime. HC Pete Carroll revealed afterwards that Lockett was hospitalized for a "really bad" contusion. “It will be OK but it’s a pretty severe situation for right now," Carroll said. “I think there was a lot of swelling ... We’re ahead of it so we should be in good shape.” We'll keep a close eye on this, but Lockett has a Week 11 bye to heal up. His absence could push WR Josh Gordon into an expanded role.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (back) put in a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. So he should be ready for his usual role against a Steelers defense that tends to struggle against slot receivers. Lockett is a strong bounce-back candidate after a quiet opener.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (back) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That seemingly puts him on track to play against the Steelers this weekend, although it does look like he's dealing with a legitimate injury. Let's see if Lockett can put in a full workout on Friday.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett did not practice on Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with a back. It's the 1st we've heard of the issue. It's possible that this was more of a rest day for Lockett, but we'll need to monitor the situation. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said WR David Moore will be out "a while" with a shoulder injury suffered in Thursday's practice. Carroll added that Moore won't be ready for Week 1 but gave no timetable beyond that. With WR D.K. Metcalf recovering from knee surgery, Jaron Brown is in line to open the season as Seattle's #2 WR. WR Tyler Lockett figures to dominate targets early on.

Former QB and current ESPN Seattle analyst Brock Huard believes Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is in for a busy and productive season. “I’ve never seen a guy so dominant in his execution in the movement within an offense as I did with Tyler this offseason,” Huard said. “He’s in the slot, he’s at X, he’s at Z, he’s on jet sweeps, he’s everywhere. In the last about 11 years of doing this job and watching thousands of Seahawk practices, if you add them all up over all of the years, I’ve never seen the Seahawks most highlight one player the way they did Tyler Lockett this offseason.” Strong words. Lockett has been super efficient throughout his first 4 NFL seasons, posting a 70.3% catch rate and 14.3 yards per catch. While Seattle's run-focused offense caps his upside a bit, there are 73 targets up for grabs with Doug Baldwin's retirement. That's enough to make Lockett a nice WR2 target in fantasy drafts.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) is inactive for tonight's game against the Vikings. That leaves Tyler Lockett and David Moore as Seattle's top 2 WRs. Lockett was already a fantasy starter. Moore jumps into WR3 range now and is an upside DFS play.

ESPN's Adam Schefter asked a Seahawks source if WR Doug Baldwin (hip) will play against the Vikings tonight and got this reply: "I wouldn’t think so, but you never know with Doug. I’m sure he will try.” A final decision on Baldwin might not be made until pregame warmups, but fantasy owners shouldn't be planning on having him. Baldwin's absence would give WRs Tyler Lockett and David Moore nice target boosts.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin suffered a Grade 2 partial tear of his right MCL against the Broncos on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The team is reportedly still assessing how long he'll be out. Whenever Baldwin returns, he'll be dealing with issues in each knee. WRs Tyler Lockett and Brandon Marshall get a bump here. We'll wait to see more about Baldwin's prognosis before figuring out just how much to boost them in our Rest of the Way rankings.

The Seahawks and WR Tyler Lockett have agreed to a 3-year, $31.8 million extension with $20 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The new deal lands Lockett inside the top 25 highest-paid WRs in the league. It's a significant investment -- and confirmation that Lockett is set to play a big role in Seattle's passing game this season and beyond. He's an excellent target at his 13th-round ADP.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll believes WR Tyler Lockett is finally back to 100% after breaking his leg back in December of 2016. Lockett was able to get on the field for last year's opener but finished the season with a career-low 12.3 yards per catch. “Last year was a struggle for him, the offseason for certain, but throughout the season itself he was not able to do things in the same manner that he had done it in years past, and that’s really just workload," Carroll said. "He just couldn’t do as much, had to take care of his legs more. So he’s back at it, he’s really playing fast, he has no restrictions of any kind of after effects of the surgery of last year or since he’s been hurt. So that’s a real positive." Lockett's fantasy value took a hit with the addition of Brandon Marshall, but he's fully capable of beating out the 34-year-old vet Seattle's #2 WR job. It'll be a situation to monitor when training camp opens.

The Seahawks have agreed to a 1-year deal with free-agent WR Brandon Marshall, ESPN reports. The move comes well after Marshall visited Seattle, but he enters a depth chart with opportunity available. Doug Baldwin is the only incumbent at the position who has surpassed 71 targets in a season. We'll see what Marshall has left after a lackluster pre-injury stint with the Giants. He caught just 18 of 33 targets and averaged 8.6 yards per catch over 5 games. His Seahawks deal could reportedly be worth up to $2 million with incentives, less per-year money than Seattle gave Jaron Brown. Unless Marshall proves totally cooked this summer, though, his arrival complicates the target picture behind Baldwin. Tyler Lockett's later-round ADP will make him a solid upside bet. We'll see where others settle on the depth chart and ADP charts over the next couple of months.

The Jets have acquired WR Jermaine Kearse and a 2nd-round pick from the Seahawks in exchange for DT Sheldon Richardson. Kearse is coming off a brutal 2017 season and likely would have been cut if Seattle hadn't found a trade partner. He's, at best, a #3 NFL WR but could certainly carve out a significant role in New York's pathetic WR corps. Still, we wouldn't spend a fantasy pick on Kearse. His departure leaves Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, Tyler Lockett and Kasen Williams as the Seahawks' top 4 WRs.

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.
