When Jimmy Graham is healthy, Luke Willson will be the No. 2 tight end for the Seahawks. But it's unknown when Graham will be healthy coming off last year's knee injury in Week 12. If he's out to start the season then Willson could be the starter, which would increase his Fantasy value in deeper leagues. But barring Graham being ruled out for the year, we don't expect Willson to have much appeal in the majority of leagues. In 2015, Willson had 17 catches for 213 yards and one touchdown, and he's only scored five touchdowns in three years. He is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.
Willson (concussion) is active for Sunday's divisional round contest in Carolina, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Willson proved that the concussion protocol was a thing of the past with full showings in practice all week. Upon his first appearance since Week 16, he should serve as the Seahawks' No. 1 tight end.
Willson (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's playoff game versus the Panthers. Willson hasn't played since suffering a concussion in Week 16, but was a full participant in practice both Wednesday and Thursday. As a result, the tight end appears to have passed the league's protocol, and is expected to play in Sunday's game in Carolina, boosting the Seahawks' tight end options.
Willson (concussion) will be a full practice participant Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports. Head coach Pete Carroll made the proclamation prior to drills, which indicates that Willson has been cleared from the concussion protocol. While Carroll hasn't explicitly said as much, a full practice would set the stage for Willson's first action since Week 16. With Jimmy Graham (knee) out of the picture, the Seahawks have relied upon Willson as the top tight end, though he has yet to catch more than two passes in any game this season.
Head coach Pete Carroll expects Willson (concussion) to return Sunday at Carolina. Sidelined since suffering the malady in Week 16, Willson was able to practice on a limited basis last Wednesday, before sitting out both Thursday and Friday. Carroll's comments could indicate that Willson is approaching the end of his journey through the concussion protocol, but the Seahawks likely won't release information on that front until divisional-round prep commences Wednesday.
Willson (concussion) has been ruled out prior the Seahawks' Wild Card matchup against the Vikings. The starting tight end missed the Seahawks' regular season finale with ongoing concussion symptoms, so this designation doesn't exactly come as a surprise. Both Cooper Helfet and Chase Coffman will likely see additional time on the field with Willson out, especially in two tight end sets, but Helfet should be considered the main receiving option of the two.
