Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett limited in practice, still good for fantasy owners in Week 3

Seattle Seahawks’ starting wide receivers recover from knee injuries. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks’ wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett were limited in practice Wednesday with respective knee injuries, according to Seahawks beat writer Gregg Bell. Both receivers went down in the first half of Seattle’s Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Each player was able to return to the game.

Baldwin’s MRI on Monday came back clean. The six-year WR also suffered back spasms during Sunday’s game, according to ESPN’s Sheil Kapadia. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times that Lockett “had a little bit of a sprained knee.” Both Baldwin and Lockett are expected to play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: Baldwin and Lockett seem to be fine from their respective knee injuries. It looks like the Seahawks are just being cautious with their receiving core by limiting them in practice Wednesday. Expect both receivers to be upsides against a favorable division matchup with the 49ers, if they are healthy.
