Shark Bites

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Chargers. He played through this issue last week but caught just 2 of 5 targets for 17 yards. And he didn’t practice at all this week. Lockett comes with a lower fantasy floor and ceiling than usual today.

Recent Shark Bites

The Seahawks and WR Tyler Lockett have agreed to a restructured deal that will pay $30 million over the next two years, with $13 million guaranteed and a max value of $34 million. That locks in the veteran wideout with Seattle in 2024. The biggest impact here might be on second-year WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba. He ranked a clear third among Seahawks in targets last season, drawing 5.5 per game to Lockett's 7.4 and D.K. Metcalf's 7.2. JSN will need to pass one of those guys to become truly fantasy relevant. A new coaching staff presents opportunity for offensive design to change. But the new regime clearly believes Lockett remains good. And Metcalf just turned 26 in December. Lockett's Underdog Fantasy ADP sits WR56 to date, compared with Smith-Njigba's WR38. That sure looks imbalanced in the veteran's favor from here. Keeping the WR trio together helps QB Geno Smith's outlook -- assuming he keeps the job, of course.

The Seahawks were forced to start QB Drew Lock against the 49ers in Week 14. That didn’t bother WR Tyler Lockett, though, as led the team with 6 catches and 89 yards. He caught all of his targets. That efficiency was key, as Lock tossed only 31 passes, while the Seahawks fired off just 55 plays. We’ll see if Geno Smith (groin) can suit up next week vs. the Eagles. But there's no denying Lockett's favorable upcoming schedule, which includes the Eagles and the Titans. He looks like a WR3 down the stretch.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett entered Sunday's game questionable with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. He still managed to run a route on 71.4% of QB Geno Smith's dropbacks and finished second on the team in targets (7). The route rate fell slightly from Lockett's usual, trailing WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba behind team leader D.K. Metcalf. Lockett managed 5 receptions for a just-OK 51 yards. That's not winning your fantasy matchup, but it's a decent line for a guy fighting off hamstring trouble. We'll be watching Lockett's status heading into a Week 12 home date with the 49ers. That matchup has been more favorable for opponent passing games than to RB scoring.

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.
