Latest Updates

 

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 missing key defenders


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Seahawks will be missing two key defensive starters for the game against the Rams, as cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf) and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner (foot) are inactive. Also sitting out are center Max Unger (foot), tight end Zach Miller (ankle), defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), tight end Luke Willson (groin) and offensive tackle Andrew McDonald.

Seahawks list lengthy injury report for Week 7 against St. Louis


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Seahawks will be without the services of defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf), linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe), defensive end Cassius Marsh (foot), center Max Unger (foot) and tight end Zach Miller (ankle) in Week 7 at St. Louis. All six players were ruled out for Sunday's game.

Tight end Luke Willson (groin) was listed as questionable and is expected to be a game-time decision, coach Pete Carroll said.

Meanwhile, running back Marshawn Lynch (not injury related), offensive tackle Alvin Bailey (oblique), cornerback Tharold Simon (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (not injury related) and defensive end Michael Bennett (not injury related) were all ruled probable against the Rams.


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.

Receiver Bryan Walters mustered a 5-yard grab on three targets.


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. 


Seahawks get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) A slew of Seahawks made offensive contributions in their Super Bowl win. Running back Robert Turbin carried nine times for 25 yards and was targeted once without a catch.

Receiver Ricardo Lockette had a 19-yard catch, receiver Golden Tate caught three of four targets for 17 yards and tight end Luke Willson caught two balls for 17 yards. Tight end Zach Miller made a 10-yard catch, and fullback Michael Robinson had a 7-yard grab.


Seahawks injury report includes all designations


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright will miss his fourth straight game Saturday with a foot injury. He has been ruled out of the NFC semifinal against New Orleans. The only teammate likely to miss the game is defensive tackle Jordan Hill (groin), who is doubtful. Free safety Chris Maragos (back) is questionable.

The probables are safety Kam Chancellor (hip), wideout Percy Harvin (hip) and tight end Luke Willson (ankle).


Luke Willson back from sprained ankle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014) Seahawks tight end Luke Willson, who was carted off with an ankle sprain Week 17, practiced Tuesday and is expected to play Saturday against the Saints.

Seahawks get offensive contributions


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Ricardo Lockette was held to just one catch for a gain of 9 yards while Luke Willson had just one reception for 3 yards. Michael Robinson was targeted once and was held without a grab in a 17-10 defeat.

Zach Miller has a great Week 16 matchup, but...


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller couldn't have asked for a better Week 16 matchup. His opponent, the Cardinals, have allowed 14.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends -- the highest average in the league, by far. However, the warm, fuzzy feeling here is thwarted by Miller's rib injury, which has kept him limited in practice this week.

In his first game against the Cardinals this season, Miller caught five passes for 40 yards and a touchdown. Tight ends have scored 15 touchdowns over 14 games against the Cardinals, who have allowed a tight end to score in all but one of their last six.

If Miller can't go, backup tight end Luke Willson becomes a decent starting option. But exercise caution with these two -- they are far from slam dunk options. Yes, the Cardinals have been terrible against tight ends, but Miller (or Wilson) should still be on the lower end of the top 12-15 options this week. 


Three Seattle players make it onto stat sheet Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Willson finished with two catches for 23 yards, while Kearse had two catches for 21 yards on three targets.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Seahawks get offensive contributions in easy victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
