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 sign RB Eddie Lacy to one-year deal

Eddie Lacy's deal with the Seahawks: 1 year, $5.55M with $3M fully guaranteed, per source.

Related players: C.J. Prosise, Thomas Rawls

Fantasy Impact:

In 20 games over the last two years, Lacy has averaged 67 total yards on 14.1 touches (4.33 YPC) and 0.25 touchdowns, for a per game average of 9.4 FP in PPR formats. He was significantly better (16.8 PPG) in his first two seasons, though his YPC (4.37) was similar. Prior to undergoing ankle surgery, Lacy was running well (5.1 YPC, 72 yards per game). His arrival in Seattle submarines any budding value for Thomas Rawls or C.J. Prosise. He's not a shoo-in to win the RB1 job, however. In Green Bay, Ty Montgomery looks safe as the team's RB1, though they may still address the position in the draft (likely) or free agency (less likely).

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 19. Prosise may be able to make his return, but he’s not 100 percent. Thomas Rawls will lead the backfield. Prosise may see a role as the third-down back, but that’s probably a best case scenario at this point.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. After his performance last week, we’re expecting Rawls to carry the load in a nice matchup against the Falcons.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) took full practice reps all week. Jones is good to go for a tough matchup against the Seahawks.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (foot) took full practice reps all week. Richardson has cleared 40 yards in three straight games and has 16 targets in that span. He’s a pretty nice cheap play in DFS this week.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Graham is good to go.

HC Pete Carroll wants to get RB Thomas Rawls 20 carries this week

Saturday, January 7, 2017, 10:29am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll has made it clear that Thomas Rawls will be the primary back.

"He’s been ready for about four or five weeks, and we can really see that he can turn it around and count on his legs and count on his quicks and all that kind of stuff," Carroll said. "We haven’t gotten him the ball as consistently as we would like, and any runner needs to get the football to start to get a feel for it.

"I hope, like I said last week -- I want him to get the ball 20 times this week. We’ll see what happens, we’ll see how the game goes. He’s been great about it, he’s been on point. He’s been tremendous in rehab through the process. Just to make it back physically is one, but mentally he made it back as well. We’re really proud of him."

Fantasy Impact:

Rawls has totaled 56 yards on 37 carries (1.5 YPC) in the last three weeks, so in this case, a large workload is no guarantee of better production.

Friday, January 6, 2017, 5:00pm

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 18. Marcel Reece and Alex Collins will likely divvy up the passing-down role behind starter Thomas Rawls.

Friday, January 6, 2017, 5:00pm

Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. No worries here.

Report: Full house-cleaning 'likely' for 49ers

Sunday, January 1, 2017, 8:10am

The 49ers will play the Seahawks on Sunday, and when they are done it will conclude another frustrating, disappointing season. In the first year under coach Chip Kelly, they went backward.

And now, San Francisco faces an offseason of change with the goal of returning the organization to the upper echelon spot it has held so often in the league's history.

Owner Jed York and the 49ers' key decision-makers are expected to replace both embattled GM Trent Baalke and Kelly, multiple sources say. A full house-cleaning is described as "likely" by several people with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Impact:

A final decision won't come until after Sunday's game. But it would be a major surprise if either Kelly or Baalke keep their jobs.
