Luke Willson caught 3-of-3 targets for 51 yards Week 11 against the Chiefs.
Willson was wide open for a 27-yard catch on a broken play in the third quarter, and converted a third and seven to start the second. Willson is the Seahawks' go-to pass catching tight end, but that does not mean much of anything at this point. He is nothing but a low-end TE2. Nov 16 - 5:16 PM

Seahawks TE Luke Willson (ankle) will be a game-time decision in Week 11.

If Willson plays, he will likely lose snaps to Cooper Helfet and/or Tony Moeaki. Seahawks tight ends can safely be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Nov 14 - 4:18 PM

Luke Willson (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Willson is now on track to play Sunday, but his snaps are up in the air. Willson has struggled, arguably getting out-played by Cooper Helfet. Tony Moeaki is also expected to join the Seahawks' mix at tight end against the Chiefs. Willson is off the TE2 radar.
Nov 13 - 7:28 PM

Seahawks TE Luke Willson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

With Zach Miller out for the season, Willson should continue to play the majority of snaps if healthy. Tony Moeaki is expected to make his Seattle debut this week and will see time in two tight end sets.
Nov 12 - 7:40 PM

Seahawks TE Luke Willson left Sunday's Week 10 game against the Giants in the second quarter with an ankle injury and will not return.

Willson, who had no catches at the time of his injury, was helped by trainers very gingerly to the sideline. Only Cooper Helfet is left as a healthy tight end for Seattle.
Nov 9 - 5:32 PM

Luke Willson secured 1-of-5 targets for 16 yards in the Seahawks' Week 9 win over the Raiders.

Willson had a number of opportunities for big plays down the seam, but committed at least three drops. Despite impressive athleticism, Willson simply isn't a great football player at this stage of his career. He'll be a low-end TE2 when Seattle takes on the Giants next.
Nov 2 - 8:09 PM

Luke Willson caught one pass for a 23-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 8 win at Carolina.

Willson, who was over the hamstring tweak that kept him out of Week 8, saved his best for last. With 47 seconds left and the Seahawks down 9-6, Russell Wilson hit the athletic pass-catcher in stride up the seam and he bounced off tackles for the game-winner. There's only very weak TE2 appeal here though, due to lack of volume.
Oct 26 - 4:58 PM

Seahawks TE Luke Willson (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 8 game at Carolina.

Willson's return means Cooper Helfet is not a thing anymore, even though Zach Miller (ankle) remains sidelined. Marshawn Lynch is active, of course, despite chemistry rumors -- he's not going to be traded at the deadline either. The rest of the Seahawks inactives: WR Bryan Walters, CB Byron Maxwell, LB Bobby Wagner, C Max Unger, DT Jordan Hill and T McDonald.
Oct 26 - 11:37 AM

Seahawks TE Luke Willson (groin) is probable for Week 8.

Willson will start Sunday's game against the Panthers. Cooper Helfet should see time in two tight end sets.
Oct 24 - 5:41 PM

Seahawks TE Luke Willson (groin) is practicing in full for Week 8.

Barring a setback, Willson will be back to start Sunday's game against the Panthers. He's not on the TE2 radar.
Oct 23 - 7:45 PM

Luke Willson (groin) returned to Seahawks practice Wednesday.

Willson sat out Week 7, leaving tight end duties to Cooper Helfet, who caught three passes for 61 yards and a score. Willson won't be guaranteed to start in his return to the lineup with Zach Miller (ankle) still sidelined.
Oct 22 - 3:25 PM

Luke Willson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Rams.

With Zach Miller (foot) also out, the Seahawks are down to just Cooper Helfet and RaShaun Allen at tight end.
Oct 19 - 12:05 PM

Luke Willson (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 7 at St. Louis.

His status is unclear after showing up unexpectedly on Thursday's injury report as a "DNP" (Did Not Practice). With Zach Miller (ankle) already ruled out, the Seahawks would turn to Cooper Helfet if Willson can't go Sunday.
Oct 17 - 4:34 PM

Luke Willson caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Cowboys.

Willson had plenty of chances in this dream matchup (six targets), but came up just empty on too many of them. Over the last two weeks with Zach Miller out, he has five catches for 39 yards and no touchdowns despite facing the Redskins and Cowboys. Willson is just a deep Dynasty hold thanks to his size/speed appeal.
Oct 12 - 7:57 PM

Luke Willson caught three passes for 28 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over Washington.

Willson was targeted four times on the night with Zach Miller (ankle) sidelined. He and Cooper Helfet split tight end duties, while Helfet managed one catch for 36 yards on two targets. Miller is expected to miss maybe one more game, but Willson should get another start and have a plus matchup in Week 6 vs. Dallas.
