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 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.

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.
