Luke Willson's lack of targets telling


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:13 pm ET) Seahawks tight end Luke Willson had a career performance Week 16 at Arizona, going for 139 yards and two touchdowns, including an 80-yarder in the second quarter. But those numbers distract from one just as important: His three catches were his only three targets on the day.

Even with quarterback Russell Wilson attempting more than 30 passes for just the second time in five games, Willson wasn't any more targeted than usual. It's just that two of them happened to result in big plays.

The long touchdown was probably a fluke. He got behind the defense, an oversight on its part, and ran away from everyone after he caught the ball. Big deal. Take it away, and he had two catches for 59 yards and a touchdown -- a good performance by his standards, but nothing that would send Fantasy owners flocking to the waiver wire.

Even though Willson got the numbers, Wilson's preferred targets were wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Paul Richardson, who had 11 and seven targets, respectively. Those were season highs for each.

If you can't count on them to get consistent looks in the Seahawks offense, you certainly can't count on Willson to. He's had only three games with more than four all season, none in the last three weeks.


Seahawks TE Luke Willson scores twice Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Seahawks tight end Luke Willson turned in a huge game Week 16 against the Cardinals. 

Willson only caught three passes, but made a huge impact. On his first reception of the game, Willson hauled in an 80 yard score from Russell Wilson. Willson got behind the defense, and was able to outrun everyone once he caught the pass. Late in the game, Willson pulled in a 39 yard reception. Later in the drive, he caught a 20 yard touchdown pass for his second score of the night. Willson finished with a team-high 139 yards. 

Willson will take on the Rams Week 17. 


Seahawks backup receivers get some action Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Seahawks backup receivers managed to get some work Week 14 against the Eagles.

Jermaine Kearse finished second on the team in receiving, gaining 37 yards on three catches. Paul Richardson had two receptions, picking up 27 yards. Kevin Norwood also had two catches. He finished with 22 yards. Ricardo Lockette hauled in one pass, gaining 19 yards. Tight end Tony Moeaki caught one pass, picking up 15 yards. Fullback Will Tukuafu also had one catch, gaining 4 yards. Luke Willson gained one yard on his only reception.

The group will look for more Week 15 against the 49ers. 


Seahawks' pass catchers limited by light workload in Week 13


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Seahawks tight end Tony Moeaki led his offense with 63 receiving yards on just one reception in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.

Moeaki caught a pass of about 12 yards near the sideline early in the second quarter and ran past his defender to bring the ball all the way down to the one-yard line before being caught. The Seahawks weren't able to punch the ball into the end zone on the drive, but a dominant performance by the defense meant the points left on the board wouldn't come back to haunt the offense.

The rest of the receiving corps didn't have much of a workload in the win Thursday, with quarterback Russell Wilson completing just 15 passes on 22 attempts. Tight end Luke Willson led the Seahawks with four receptions and six targets, gaining just 39 yards in the game. Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse managed three receptions for 34 yards, while wide receiver Doug Baldwin could only haul in two passes for 28 yards. Rookie Paul Richardson was able to catch his only target for six yards.

The Seahawks have a trip to Philadelphia on the schedule in Week 14.


Seahawks receivers stay quiet in Week 12 win vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette led his team in receiving yards Sunday, catching his only target for 48 yards in his team's 19-3 win over the Cardinals in Week 12.

No one receiver was able to deliver a breakout performance on a day where the Seahawks led for most the game and attempted just 22 passes. Quarterback Russell Wilson hit nine different receivers with completions in the game, with tight end Tony Moeaki hauling in a team-high four catches for 34 yards.

Tight end Cooper Helfet caught both of his targets for 27 yards and a touchdown, doing most of the work on the 20-yard score after catching the ball behind the line of scrimmage. Tight end Luke Willson (21 yards) and wide receivers Jermaine Kearse (19 yards) and Kevin Norwood (10 yards) each managed just one catch. Wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught two passes but for only six yards.

The Seahawks face a quick turnaround, with a Thursday night matchup with the 49ers on the schedule for Week 13.


Seahawks backup pass catchers do little Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Seahawks backup pass catchers did little Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Luke Willson performed the best of the bunch, gaining 51 yards on three catches. He finished second on the team in receiving yards. Paul Richardson hauled in three balls for 24 yards. Cooper Helfet caught one pass, gaining 2 yards. Tony Moeaki caught one pass for 1 yard, but managed to score a touchdown. 

They'll take on the Cardinals Week 12.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Seahawks injury report for Sunday designates seven as out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The lengthy injury report released by the Seahawks on Friday for the Sunday game at Carolina has only ruled-out players and probables.

There are no surprises in either designation. All those who are out did not practice this week. That group consists of fullback Derrick Coleman (foot), defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf), tight end Zach Miller (ankle), center Max Unger (foot), linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe) and wideout Bryan Walters (concussion).

The probables are defensive end Michael Bennett (toe), strong safety Kam Chancellor (ankle), cornerback Tharold Simon (ankle), running back Robert Turbin (shoulder) and tight end Luke Willson (groin).


Seahawks TE Luke Willson, C Max Unger could return Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said tight end Luke Willson (groin) almost certainly will play Sunday at Carolina, and that center Max Unger (foot) has a chance to play, reports the Seattle Times. Both missed the Week 7 loss at St. Louis.

Seahawks' pass catchers do little Week 6


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Seahawks' passing game was atrocious in Week 6. Aside from Jermaine Kearse, who caught three passes for 62 yards, no other wideout or tight end had more than two catches or 32 yards.

Receiver Doug Baldwin caught two of three targets for 32 yards, while tight end Luke Willson secured two of six targets for 11 yards. Wideout Ricardo Lockette had an 8-yard catch, tight end Cooper Helfet a 7-yarder.

Seahawks' role players step up Week 5


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) The Seahawks got offensive contributions from several role players in their Week 5 win at Washington. Tight end Cooper Helfet made a 36-yard catch on two targets, and tight end Luke Willson caught three of four targets for 28 yards.

Holder Jon Ryan executed a fake field goal, picking up a first down with a 5-yard run.


Luke Willson has a lot to prove with increased role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Seahawks will turn to Luke Willson to start at tight end in the coming weeks, with Zach Miller sidelined by ankle surgery. Should Fantasy owners take notice?

Miller had logged 83.5 percent of the team's snaps through three games, so Willson should be in line for a much larger role as the starter. Of course, Miller was nearly a nonfactor in the passing game so far, having been targeted just seven times. Between he and Willson, quarterback Russell Wilson has targeted tight ends just eight times on 87 attempts, after 20.6 percent of his passes went their way a year ago.

Willson might be the better pass catcher of the Seahawks tight end tandem, but we don't have much to go on here. There are better tight end options worth targeting on waivers, at least until Willson proves himself. 


Luke Willson gets starting opportunity


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) With Seahawks tight end Zach Miller recovering from ankle surgery, Luke Willson will start Monday's game in Washington, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The second-year pro caught 20 passes for 272 yards and a touchdown as a rookie.

"When you're the backup guy, you're kind of always prepared for it," Willson said. "I don't really feel like I'm really entering any new territory."

A fifth-round pick out of Rice, Willson started two games last year when Miller hurt his hamstring.


Seahawks backup receivers make the most of their chances


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Seahawks backup receivers made some big plays Thursday against the Packers.

Both Ricardo Lockette and Derrick Coleman came through on scoring plays. Lockette was targeted on a read-option play. After Russell Wilson kept the ball, he hit Lockette with a short pass after the cornerback bit on the play. Lockette broke a tackle on his way to scoring a 33 yard touchdown. He would finish with two catches for 38 yards. 

Coleman only made one catch, but made it count. With the team trying to run out the clock, Coleman caught a short pass on fourth down and managed to rumble in for the 15 yard score. 

Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse didn’t play a big role in the contest. Baldwin caught three balls, but only gained 11 yards. Kearse caught just one pass for 8 yards. Tight end Luke Willson chipped in too, hauling in one pass for one yard.

All five players will take on the Chargers Week 2.


Luke Willson opening eyes in Seattle


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/28/2014) Second-year tight end Luke Willson has been "putting on a show" at Seahawks training camp so far this summer, ESPN says. Willson has been consistently getting separation on his pass routes and has displayed great hands. The site says to "expect big things" from Willson catching passes from Russell Wilson. 

As a rookie, Willson caught 20 passes for 272 yards and a touchdown (13.6 yards per catch) in the regular season.


Seahawks headed for tight end shuffle?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/4/2014) The Seahawks' cap situation isn't terrible but with several players due extensions in the future the team might work now to stay ahead of trouble. To that extend the team might choose to restructure or release veteran tight end Zach Miller. The veteran has a cap number of $7 million for 2014, according to USA Today

The Seahawks could choose to let him loose and promote fellow tight end Luke Willson to the starting job. Willson had 272 yards and one touchdown to Miller's 387 yards and five touchdowns.
