Luke Willson's lack of targets telling
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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 |

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' pass catchers limited by light workload in Week 13
by R.J. White |

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 |

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.
