ESPN's Sheil Kapadia expects Luke Willson to be the Seahawks' starting tight end Week 1.
The implication being Jimmy Graham will not be ready to go despite coach Pete Carroll claiming he has been a "full-go" in practice. Even if Graham suits up against the Dolphins, he will be limited in his first game action since rupturing his patellar tendon, meaning Willson will play plenty of snaps. Willson failed to capitalize after Graham went down last year, but he could be worth a look in deep two-TE formats. Sep 5 - 10:55 AM

Luke Willson caught 4-of-7 targets for 54 yards in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss to the Panthers.

Willson returned after missing the Wild Card round with a concussion. His longest catch went for 22 yards down the right side, as he was left wide open in the first half. Willson has one year left on his rookie deal and will likely run with the first-team offense much of the offseason as Jimmy Graham recovers from patellar tendon surgery. Willson is a catch-first tight end.
Jan 17 - 5:43 PM

Luke Willson (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Panthers.

Jan 15 - 4:10 PM

Luke Willson (concussion) is practicing in full for the Divisional Round.

Jan 13 - 4:14 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said TE Luke Willson (concussion) will not play Sunday against the Vikings.

This was expected after Willson was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice. Cooper Helfet and Chase Coffman will handle tight end duties with Willson out. Carroll said Willson is the only Seahawk who will miss the game due to injury.
Jan 8 - 12:31 PM

Luke Willson (concussion) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

It's very discouraging after Willson was "limited" on Wednesday. He'll almost certainly miss Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Jan 7 - 7:08 PM

Luke Willson (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The return to practice gives him a chance to play in Sunday's Wild Card Round. Willson's status will be updated throughout the week.
Jan 6 - 7:12 PM

Luke Willson (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17.

The Seahawks will go with a tight end rotation of Cooper Helfet and Chase Coffman against the Cardinals.
Jan 1 - 4:15 PM

Luke Willson (concussion) didn’t practice Wednesday.

Willson's in the early stages of the concussion protocol. He's not expected to play Sunday. Cooper Helfet will start in his place.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 07:32:00 PM

Luke Willson suffered a concussion in the Seahawks' Week 16 game against the Rams, and will not return.

Willson was catchless on one target before going down. He's week to week. Cooper Helfet is the No. 1 tight end in Willson's absence.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 06:21:00 PM

Luke Willson (ribs) is probable for Week 15 against the Browns.

Willson returned to a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. He should be all systems go for Sunday. Willson is well off the fantasy radar.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 04:26:00 PM

Luke Willson (ribs) returned to a full practice on Thursday.

He was limited on Wednesday. Willson is on track to play Sunday against Cleveland. He won't be a fantasy option for that matchup.
Thu, Dec 17, 2015 07:17:00 PM

Luke Willson (ribs) was at the Seahawks' walkthrough on Wednesday.

He's dealing with bruised ribs. Coach Pete Carroll said Willson could be available Sunday against Cleveland. The Seahawks are already shorthanded at tight end with Jimmy Graham (torn patellar tendon) out for the year.
Wed, Dec 16, 2015 04:06:00 PM

Luke Willson secured 1-of-2 targets for eight yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Ravens.

Willson dropped a touchdown pass early in the game and was out-produced by "Cooper Helfet" (2-20). Despite Russell Wilson's white-hot stretch, the Seahawks' tight ends lack fantasy value in the post-Jimmy Graham era.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 04:59:00 PM

Luke Willson caught 2-of-3 targets for 36 yards in Seattle's Week 13 win over the Vikings.

Both of Willson's grabs were big plays early on, but he wasn't a factor in the second half. Replacing Jimmy Graham, Willson ceded plenty of snaps to Cooper Helfet. Willson has athleticism to spare, and nice chemistry with Russell Wilson, but is unlikely to be a legitimate TE2 down the stretch.
