Tyler Lockett is dealing with a hamstring injury for Week 11. We break down what it means for fantasy football and betting.

Game status update: Lockett is ACTIVE for Sunday’s game against the Rams.

Game day update: Lockett is expected to play but will work out ahead of the game, per Adam Schefter.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett did not practice all week. Despite that, the team still listed him as questionable for this Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. We may have to wait until Sunday to know for sure whether or not Lockett can play through the hamstring injury that’s bothering him, but the chances of him suiting up are not looking good.


Fantasy football analysis

Lockett is Seattle’s leading receiver in targets, catches and touchdowns, and he’s second in receiving yards. Last week, he caught eight passes on 10 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown.

If he plays, he’s in line for a solid outing against the Rams. If not, look for DK Metcalf and Jaxon Smith-Njigba to see more looks. Jake Bobo could also get some work in the red zone.

NFL DFS analysis

Lockett’s risky this week given how much we don’t know about his status. Still, if he does play, he’s a potential bargain in DraftKings DFS leagues at $6,500, making him a solid WR3 or even WR2. If he sits, JSN merits some WR3 consideration, and Metcalf’s value increases.

Betting analysis

Seattle’s only favored by a point here, but if Lockett plays, that shouldn’t be a problem.
