Free-agent WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) said Wednesday, April 20, that he is taking his recovery "day by day" after a scary season-ending neck injury in November. He is no longer wearing a neck brace, and said he intends to play again.
Fantasy Tip: Lockette was injured in November while covering a punt. He might make his way back all the way, finding a job in the NFL. However, he has a while to go before he gets that chance and has an opportunity to make a splash from a fantasy perspective.

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Nov. 14. WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) was placed on Reserve/Injured. "We're going to jump (Richardson) right back in," head coach Pete Carroll said. "Really, we're going to put him right back into it. He's had enough time now, he's been out on the practice field, he looks great, so we're just going to fit him in. How do I see it? We're going to fit him in."
Fantasy Tip: Richardson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) faces Arizona Cardinals this weekend, and it's best to see what kind of rust he has first. Keep him on your FantasyScore watch list.

Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and has been ruled out for the Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals. DE David King (groin) was limited during practice and is listed as doubtful, while TE Luke Willson (toe), OT Russell Okung (toe, ankle) and DE Michael Bennett (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) has been released from the hospital following surgery for ligament damage in his neck earlier this week. Lockette also suffered a concussion and disc injury and will not play again this year, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Tue, 03 Nov 2015 09:25:55 -0800
Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) had successful surgery on his neck Monday, Nov. 2.
Mon, 02 Nov 2015 15:27:46 -0800
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) has "full motion and feeling in all extremities" and is undergoing surgery Monday, Nov. 2, but his playing career is in jeopardy.
Fantasy Tip: You can obviously drop Lockette in all fantasy formats if you owned him. Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and Tyler Lockett will see fantasy value increase with Lockette out, but Baldwin and Kearse are really the only receivers worth considering for fantasy owners.
Mon, 02 Nov 2015 10:21:58 -0800
Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) is not expected to make it make this season. Head coach Pete Carroll said "there's no way" that Lockette returns in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Lockette is having a neck procedure Monday. You should drop him in all deeper leagues if you own him and look for more wide receiver depth. Doug Baldwin and Jeremy Kearse should see an increased role in the passing game with Lockette done for the year.
Mon, 02 Nov 2015 09:39:34 -0800
Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) will undergo a procedure to stabilize ligaments in his neck Monday, Nov. 2, after suffering a scary hit in the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Lockette's season is in jeopardy.
Fantasy Tip: Lockette is likely to miss at least a few games, though, so he's droppable in deeper leagues. Jermaine Kearse's role in the offense will probably receive the biggest boost, and the Seahawks could look to get Jimmy Graham more involved, too.
Sun, 01 Nov 2015 15:49:46 -0800
Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (concussion) left the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys after being taken off strapped to a stretcher. He has movement in his extremities, too.
Fantasy Tip: Lockette ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't a great FantasyScore option, but that's not important right now. Hopefully the young man is all right.
Fri, 09 Oct 2015 15:40:59 -0700
Seattle Seahawks CB Marcus Burley (hand) and CB Tharold Simon (toe) have been ruled out for Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals. DE Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) and CB Tye Smith (hip) are doubtful, while WR Ricardo Lockette (illness), DT Brandon Mebane (groin) and S Steven Terrell (hip) are probable. Dobbs, Smith, Simon, Burley and Pierre-Louis didn't practice Friday, Oct. 9. Mebane, Lockette and Terrell were full participants.
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 18:03:03 -0700
Seattle Seahawks DE Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder), CB Tye Smith (hip), CB Tharold Simon (toe), CB Marcus Burley (hand) and LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 17:46:10 -0700

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 22:20:32 -0700
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (illness) left the Week 4 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Oct. 5, after he fell ill, head coach Pete Carroll said after the game.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 19:13:40 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (illness) will not return to the Week 4 game against the Detroit Lions after checking out of the game due to a shortness of breath.
Tue, 04 Aug 2015 10:11:12 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WR Chris Matthews is seeing plenty of time with the team's top-end receiver rotation including WRs Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. Matthews looks to be building off his big performance in the Super Bowl last year. WRs Ricardo Lockette and Tyler Lockett could be fighting for a roster spot. WR Paul Richardson (knee) is on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Fantasy Tip: Matthews has some real nice big-play ability, and he'll certainly enter the season as a deep fantasy wideout sleeper. The fact that the Seahawks run the ball a lot will make it tough for Matthews to be a consistent contributor unless an injury opens up more looks for him.
Tue, 14 Apr 2015 14:19:48 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette signed his exclusive-rights tender Tuesday, April 14.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 13:52:03 -0800

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 19:24:38 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WRs Phil Bates, Ricardo Lockette and Bryan Walters appear to be finalists for the last one or two receiving positions on the 53-man roster. WR Kevin Norwood (foot) has been out since early in camp due to a foot injury which will sideline him indefinitely. That might mean two spots are up for grabs.
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 16:16:12 -0700
Updating previous reports, Miami Police spokesperson Rene Pimental said there is no evidence of a crime or sexual assault involved in the incident involving San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and WR Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette. Pimental said the woman involved asked for an incident report. None of the players have been questioned, arrested or charged with any crimes.
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 12:35:01 -0700
Updating a previous report, an unnamed woman said she had an encounter with San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, WR Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette April 1 at a Miami hotel. The woman told police she drank and smoked marijuana with the players and wound up in Kaepernick's room. She told police that she and Kaepernick both removed their closes but didn't have sex. Kaepernick later left the room and the woman said she couldn't remember anything after that. Kaepernick is being investigated for alleged sexual assault, but the investigation is in the "beginning stages."
Fantasy Tip: This investigation could turn out to be a real problem for Kap. Some sort of suspension will likely be handed down by the NFL if Kaepernick is found guilty of sexual assault in any capacity. Stay tuned.
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 10:09:58 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette is part of an investigation by the Miami police involving an alleged sexual assault.
Sat, 28 Dec 2013 18:25:17 -0800
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Jermaine Kearse (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Week 17. WR Ricardo Lockette likely would be the third receiver in three-receiver sets if Kearse misses the game.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 13:13:12 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Ricardo Lockette (hip) left practice Sunday, July 28, due to a right hip injury, although he was able to return.
Fri, 26 Jul 2013 13:22:42 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Mario Manningham (knee) is roughly a month away from returning to action on the field, and the competition behind WR Anquan Boldin will be furious. WRs Kyle Williams, Ricardo Lockette, A.J. Jenkins, Quinton Patton and Marlon Moore will be looking to step up in the absence of WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles').
Fantasy Tip: Other than Manningham, who is a big question mark, the Niners have a cast of unproven wideouts to help out Boldin in the receiving game. Williams, Jenkins and Patton figure to have the greatest chance of locking down the No. 2 spot, and all three will be end-game gambles in deep leagues in drafts. The absense of a proven receive might benefit Vernon Davis the most.
Mon, 22 Jul 2013 21:00:58 -0700
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was upbeat about WRs A.J. Jenkins, Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette, who will line up at split end to compete for WR Michael Crabtree's (Achilles') starting job while he is out injured. "I feel like they're making a lot of progress," Harbaugh said. "I feel good about where that stands right now. Continued competition will continue to be good for our team and those youngsters."
Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:13:11 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton has as good a shot as any of his competition, which is believed to include WRs A.J. Jenkins and Ricardo Lockette, for the No. 2 wide receiver job behind WR Anquan Boldin. Patton has good athletic ability, size and speed, as well as energy and eagerness.
Fantasy Tip: The rookie is worth a look as a late-round flier in early fantasy drafts, and he could be a very nice sleeper if he has a strong training camp and preseason. Patton will be working to beat out former first-rounder A.J. Jenkins and Ricardo Lockette for the No. 2 job.
Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:11:52 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Ricardo Lockette lives with QB Colin Kaepernick, and the two are reportedly good friends. It still remains to be seen if their chemistry off the field will mean results on the field. Lockette is a speedy player who is in the mix for a starting job opposite WR Anquan Boldin.
Fantasy Tip: Lockette is one to watch during training camp and the preseason, as he could emerge as a big-time downfield threat due to his speed. For those in early drafts, he is worth a look as a late-round flier. Lockette's main competition for the No. 2 job will be A.J. Jenkins and Quinton Patton.
Fri, 21 Jun 2013 15:47:58 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR A.J. Jenkins appears to have a slight edge over WRs Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette for one of the starting wide receiver jobs entering training camp.
Tue, 28 May 2013 18:02:20 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WRs Chad Hall and A.J. Jenkins worked with WR Anquan Boldin during the two-minute drill at organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 28. So far, however, WRs Ricardo Lockette, Marlon Moore and Quinton Patton have also rotated with Hall and Jenkins during drills, and no one receiver appears to be getting the lion's share of reps opposite Boldin, as the jobs behind the veteran are viewed as wide open.
Tue, 28 May 2013 18:01:23 -0700
The San Francisco 49ers had a big group of players taking turns at punt returner during organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 28. RB LaMichael James, WRs Chad Hall, Ricardo Lockette and Quinton Patton were all in the mix. CB Perrish Cox and QB B.J. Daniels also saw time in the role.
Fri, 24 May 2013 12:32:28 -0700
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said WRs A.J. Jenkins, Quinton Patton and Ricardo Lockette will compete for the vacant starting wide receiver job during offseason workouts.
Fantasy Tip: All three will have the chance to win the starting job and see an increase in their fantasy value. Jenkins and Patton likely should be considered late-round options in drafts this season. Owners should monitor Lockette's role leading up to their drafts since he could be worthy of a late-round pick in very deep leagues.
Fri, 24 May 2013 10:20:11 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WR Ricardo Lockette, who is roommates with QB Colin Kaepernick, could be an intriguing candidate to step up with WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') injured. Lockette is 6-foot-2, 211 pounds and constantly is being tutored by Kaepernick since they live together. "He's one of the fastest guys on the team, and I've been trying to keep up with him," Kaepernick said of Lockette. Kaepernick has helped Lockette understand and simplify the team's playbook, and he impressed offensive coordinator Greg Roman last year while making impressive catches on the scout team. Lockette, a former track star, considers himself more of an outside receiver that can take advantage of his size and speed. "I'm sure there's things I can specifically name, but there's just something about him that I'm really fired up about," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "He's got something else to him, too, besides just the analytical size, strength, speed."
Fantasy Tip: Lockette would be classified as a super sleeper this year, mainly because, even with Crabtree out, there are still a lot of names ahead of him on the depth chart. But Lockette's relationship with Kaepernick shouldn't be overlooked. Keep Lockette's name tucked away in really deep leagues.
Wed, 22 May 2013 15:44:47 -0700
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has high hopes for WR Ricardo Lockette this season.
Fantasy Tip: With Michael Crabtree (Achilles') likely out for most, if not all, of the season, Lockette has a better shot at making an impact in San Fran. Still, he'll have a tough time seeing enough snaps to make a fantasy impact with Anquan Boldin, Mario Manningham, A.J. Jenkins and maybe even Quinton Patton likely in front of him in the pecking order.
Tue, 21 May 2013 18:08:04 -0700
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and WRs A.J. Jenkins and Ricardo Lockette lived together for two months in Atlanta during the offseason, working together at a nearby training facility. And since the opening of the team's offseason program, WR Anquan Boldin has served as a mentor, helping the two receivers on route running after practice.
Wed, 01 May 2013 18:49:45 -0700
San Francisco 49ers WRs Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree are considered the unquestioned starters, but after that the depth chart battles are wide open. WR Mario Manningham (knee) will be trying to hold off challenges from WR A.J. Jenkins, rookie WR Quinton Patton and WR Kyle Williams (knee). WRs Ricardo Lockette, Chad Hall, Joseph Hastings, Marlon Moore, Chuck Jacobs and B.J. Daniels are also in the mix for roster spots, as the team is rather deep at the position.
Sat, 16 Feb 2013 12:55:10 -0800
San Francisco 49ers WRs Chad Hall and Ricardo Lockette are working out with QB Colin Kaepernick in Georgia. WR A.J. Jenkins is expected to join them in the near future.

The San Francisco 49ers signed DT Lamar Divens, WR Ricardo Lockette, G Al Netter, LB Nathan Stupar, G Wayne Tribue and T Kenny Wiggins to reserve/future contracts Thursday, Feb. 7.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 17:59:26 -0800
The San Francisco 49ers have no intention of looking outside the organization to fill the roster spot of WR Mario Manningham (knee). Either WR Chad Hall or WR Ricardo Lockette figure to receive a promotion from the practice squad to the active roster.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 12:08:55 -0800
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh indicated the team likely will sign practice squad WR Chad Hall or WR Ricardo Lockette to their active roster.
Tue, 18 Sep 2012 13:06:35 -0700

Tue, 14 Aug 2012 19:21:25 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WRs Ben Obomanu and Golden Tate sit atop the team's initial preseason depth chart. WRs Deon Butler and Kris Durham are listed as the second-team receivers, with WRs Braylon Edwards and Charly Martin as the third-teamers. WR Terrell Owens is not listed among the Top Six, and neither are WRs Doug Baldwin (hamstring), Ricardo Lockette (leg) and Sidney Rice (shoulder), who have been dealing with injuries.
Tue, 14 Aug 2012 14:58:14 -0700
Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (shoulder) is now practicing in team drills and is diving for balls as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. However, he won't play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 18, but his progression in practice is a sign that he'll be ready to play in Week 1. WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) was back at practice Tuesday, Aug. 14, and WR Ricardo Lockette (leg) and LB Barrett Ruud (knee) also were back.
Fri, 10 Aug 2012 12:59:41 -0700
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WRs Sidney Rice, Terrell Owens, Doug Baldwin and Ricardo Lockette will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 11.
