Tyler Lockett Fantasy Football News 2021

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.

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.
