Tyler Lockett could be fully cleared for training camp

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told the press wide receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) "made a big jump from last week to this week."

Fantasy Impact

Carroll later added that there is a "good chance" Lockett will be at "full speed" by the start of July's training camp. The third-year wideout spent the better part of the offseason rehabbing from a broken leg and was finally cleared to participate in OTAs last week in a limited capacity. If Lockett does indeed make a full return to football activities at training camp, then barring a setback, he should be on the field for Week 1 of the 2017 regular season. At his WR61 ADP, Lockett is worth a late-round flier in upcoming fantasy drafts as he is expected to be an intricate part of Seattle's offense if his health remains intact.

Tyler Lockett cleared for individual drills

Seattle Seahawks beat writer Bob Condotta is reporting wide receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) was a limited participant at OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett, who is recovering from a broken leg, participated in OTAs in a limited capacity, only taking part in individual drills. However, despite his presence, his availability for training camp remains uncertain. He could be restricted through the preseason if the Seahawks elect to take the cautious approach with his recovery. Barring a setback, Lockett should be good to go for the 2017 season opener in September.

Tyler Lockett 'expects' to be ready for training camp

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) told the media he "expects" to be ready for the start of training camp in July.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett, who suffered a broken leg in Week 16 of last season, is expected to miss Seattle's offseason workouts in their entirety. However, he told the media that he fully "expects" to make his on-field return at the start of training camp in July. The 24-year-old wideout and return specialist will likely open the 2017 season as the No. 3 receiver on the Seahawks' depth chart behind Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin.

Tyler Lockett 'ahead of schedule' in his rehab

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia told ESPN's Mike Clay Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from a broken leg and "should be ready" for the 2017 season opener.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett, who suffered a broken leg in Week 16 last season, should be ready for Week 1, per Kapadia. The speedy wideout/ return ace struggled for most of the 2016 season as he dealt with a lingering PCL injury for most of the year, but he began to turn his season around down the stretch. From Weeks 13 through 16, Lockett accumulated 18 receptions for 272 yards and a touchdown as a receiver while adding three carries for 90 yards and another score as a rusher. If Lockett enters 2017 at full health, he could finally have the breakout campaign that he was expected to have last season.

Tyler Lockett 'expected' to be ready for 2017

Seattle Seahawks beat writer Bob Condotta expects wide receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) to be ready for the start of the 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett suffered a severe, season-ending leg injury in Week 16 -- he broke both his fibula and tibia against Arizona. The second-year wideout, who is also a return specialist, played in 15 games in 2016. He caught 41 targets for 597 yards and a touchdown as a receiver and recorded 114 yards and a score as a rusher. Lockett, who was expected to have his breakout season, failed to live up to expectations. However, he reportedly played through a PCL injury for most of the year. A healthy Lockett could be a dynamic and explosive weapon for the Seahawks in 2017.
