In the context of the minimal type-I seesaw model, we study the implications of considering maximally-restricted texture-zero patterns in the lepton Yukawa coupling and mass matrices. All possible patterns are analysed in the light of the most recent neutrino oscillation data and, in case of compatibility, predictions for leptonic CP violation, the effective mass relevant for neutrinoless double-beta decay, and the baryon asymmetry of the Universe are obtained.
