Head coach Pete Carroll announced during his post-game press conference that wide receiver Tyler Lockett would require surgery for his right leg injury, which would end his 2016 campaign.
"Yes, it is fair to say that," Carroll said, when asked if the surgery would end Lockett's season.

Lockett injured his leg during a would-be 29-yard touchdown reception where cornerback Brandon Williams came down awkwardly on the wide receiver's right leg. The injury required Lockett to be stabilized on the field and put in air cast, eventually leading to him being carted off. Eventually, the touchdown would be overturned with the ball placed on the one-yard line to add insult to injury. As a result, his absence led to an increase workload for wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, who had previously been demoted down the depth chart in favor of Lockett.

Divisional Round at Atlanta
Doug Baldwin caught only two passes for 44 yards last week against Detroit. Earlier this season against the Falcons, Baldwin caught four passes for 31 yards. He has shown he can come up with big games, so he will always be a consideration. The Falcons are 26th in aFPA to wide receivers, so the advantage favors Baldwin.
Baldwin is a decent play for the divisional playoff game. He falls short of being a top-tier fantasy wide receiver for the weekend, but he is still someone you should consider for your lineup.
