Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) 'ahead of schedule'

CBS - [Full Article]

Tyler Lockett (leg) is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery and should be ready to go for Week 1, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

There's been plenty of optimism that Lockett, who's on the mend from a compound fracture to his left fibula suffered in late January, will be ready to go for the start of the 2017 campaign, and this report only reinforces that notion. However, there doesn't seem to be any certainty in regard to his return date. Seattle enters the offseason program with the starting job opposite Doug Baldwin "wide open," according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia, but Lockett likely won't even have a shot if he's out of commission most of the summer. Thus, the third-year wideout has plenty of incentive to return to the field as quick as possible in order to join Paul Richardson, Jermaine Kearse and potentially a draft pick or two for what could evolve into a heated competition for the No. 2 wide receiver spot.

Fantasy Impact:

Lockett averaged 12.9 PPG (PPR) from Week 10 to Week 15, before breaking his leg in Week 16. In that span, he converted 21 of 35 targets for 345 yards and a touchdown. He also added four carries for 99 yards and a touchdown. Paul Richardson stepped up in his absence, so the two, along with Jermaine Kearse, will compete for snaps alongside Doug Baldwin.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) out for season

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. According to Doug Baldwin, Lockett has been playing with a torn PCL in his knee. If true, it would explain his lack of production this season. Removing the 4-99 he posted in Week 2 against the Rams, Lockett only has four catches for 30 yards in his three other games. With the bye week to recover, HC Pete Carroll said early this week that Lockett should have a bigger role against Atlanta in Week 6.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson appears to have left knee injury

Sunday, September 25, 2016, 7:32pm

Yahoo Sports - [Full Article]

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 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 Baldin 'good' after MRI

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

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

Tuesday, June 28, 2016, 7:32pm

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.
