Seahawks QB Russell Wilson appears to have left knee injury

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson suffered a left knee injury in the third quarter with the Seahawks leading big.

Wilson was pulled down awkwardly while being sacked by San Francisco's Eli Harold with 10 minutes to go in the third quarter. Harold was flagged for a horse collar tackle on the play as he fell on Wilson's lower leg. Wilson stayed down for a few moments before hoping up and limping around. He missed one play on that series - the first missed play of his career due to injury - but returned to throw one more pass, a 10-yard completion to Doug Baldwin.

Wilson was on the Seattle bench for its next offensive possession having a brace put on his left knee after a San Francisco turnover led to a quick change of possession. Trevone Boykin took over and Steven Hauschka's third field goal gave Seattle a 30-3 lead.

Fantasy Impact:

The knee injury comes on top of Wilson playing the last two weeks after suffering a sprained right ankle in the opener against Miami. Wilson was said to have more mobility coming into this week with the ankle, but the knee injury at least puts in question his status for the Seahawks next game.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Baldwin was removed from the injury report so he’s going to play.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Baldwin says that “barring any setbacks” he’ll play in Week 3, per HC Pete Carroll. He’s clearly not 100 percent at this point, though that doesn’t mean he won’t produce against San Francisco.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin texted Josina Anderson to say “I’m good” after having the test on his knee. Coach Pete Carroll said, via Curtis Crabtree of PFT and 950 KJR, Baldwin “seems to feel OK” during his media session on Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Baldwin played the entire game, but hurt his knee in the first half and told reporters after the game that he would have an MRI to see if there was any serious damage. Baldwin appears to have avoided that outcome.

Seahawks sign WR Doug Baldwin to a four-year extension

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Seahawks' WR Doug Baldwin's new four-year extension with Seattle is worth north of $11 million per year, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Baldwin was ridiculous after Seattle’s Week 9 bye, posting an average of 5.9 catches for 90.5 yards and 1.5 TD per game in the second half of the season. This represents a 147% increase from his production in the first half of the season. The outburst corresponded with the emergence of Russell Wilson as an elite fantasy quarterback, and Pete Carroll has indicated that the team’s offense will more closely resemble the one we saw down the stretch in 2015. We’re not expecting WR1 fantasy numbers from Baldwin, but he’s certainly in the WR2 conversation given Seattle’s newfound willingness to throw the ball.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring, questionable) missed practice again Thursday and is questionable for Week 16. The Seahawks play late so hopefully we’ll get more clarity this weekend. Tyler Lockett and Jermaine Kearse would get a bump if Baldwin can’t play.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse (calf, probable) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday and is probable for Week 16. Kearse has had three good-to-great fantasy outings in his last three games and may see extra work if Doug Baldwin (hamstring) can’t play.

Thursday, December 24, 2015, 6:12pm

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Baldwin popped up on the injury report this week and could be a game-time decision for Sunday, per HC Pete Carroll. The Seahawks play late on Sunday.

Thursday, December 24, 2015, 6:12pm

Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse (calf) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Kearse has had three good-to-great fantasy outings in his last three games and may see extra work if Doug Baldwin (hamstring) can’t play.

Friday, November 27, 2015, 6:20pm

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (ankle, probable) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday and is probable for Week 12. Baldwin is good to go.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (toe, probable) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice and is probable for Week 11.

Thursday, November 19, 2015, 5:53pm

Seahawks receivers Tyler Lockett, Chris Matthews vying for snaps

Thursday, July 16, 2015, 12:34pm

Tacoma News Tribune - [Full Article]

In May the Seahawks sent four picks to Washington to move from the bottom of the third round to the top, so they could draft Tyler Lockett from Kansas State. Coach Pete Carroll has already proclaimed Lockett the Seahawks’ punt and kickoff returner; at least its his job to lose in training camp, after Seattle suffered with poor returns and lesser starting field positions all last season. Yet Lockett has also impressed his new team with his polished and subtly skilled route running. Expect him to get many chances during exhibition games to catch passes from the slot and outside.

At 5-10, 182 pounds Lockett isn’t the big, physical receiver the Seahawks appear to need as a true wide receiver. Chris Matthews is. He’s 6-5 and 218, coming off his NFL breakout game in Super Bowl 49 with his first catches, first 100-yard game and first touchdown of his career.

Carroll says training camp and the upcoming preseason are the former Canadian Football League man’s chances to prove he is the big, physical wide receiver everyone thought Seattle had to draft in May.

Fantasy Impact:

Lockett may have a tougher time getting on the field since his size doesn't differentiate him from incumbents Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. Matthews brings size that none of the other Seattle receivers have.

Sorting out the Seahawks receiving corps

Friday, June 26, 2015, 2:03pm

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks beat writer Bob Condotta (of the Seattle Times) was asked to predict the pecking order at receiver:

If you go with just two receivers, then I’d still go with Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse being the two starters for the opening game. They are the two most experienced and proven receivers on the team and also excel at a really underrated aspect of the game that is hugely important to the coaches — blocking. That’s one reason you rarely saw those two come off the field last season. Teams obviously often run three-receiver sets. And if what we saw in OTAs and mini-caps is any indication, then the starting 3-WR sets would well include Baldwin, Kearse and Chris Matthews. Tyler Lockett projects as Baldwin’s backup, with the other spots sort of a jumble at the moment. But as of now, I’d go with Kevin Norwood and Ricardo Lockette as the other backups. As you note, Paul Richardson could well being the year on the PUP list. If he’s healthy by opening day, I’d put him on the second unit. As for the Kearse and Matthews, there’s no question that what Matthews did in the Super Bowl creates a lot of excitement going forward. But Kearse is one of the team’s most versatile receivers and as noted, also excels at blocking. For now, I think he holds on to a role as being more of an every down receiver.

Fantasy Impact:

Matthews is a deep sleeper this year despite a great performance in the Super Bowl. Baldwin should be usable in fantasy leagues, but with the addition of TE Jimmy Graham, there will be fewer targets available to the Seattle receivers.

Friday, November 7, 2014, 6:15pm

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 10. Baldwin is “ready to roll,” per HC Pete Carroll. As the top option in the Seattle passing game, he’s a worthwhile WR3 play in Week 10.
