WR Ricardo Lockette - Seattle Seahawks
|6-2, 211||Born: 5-21-1986||College: Fort Valley State||Drafted: ---|
Week 13: at San Francisco 49ers
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Seattle and San Francisco are knotted up at 7-4 behind divisional leader Arizona (9-2) - this is the first of two scheduled clashes between these divisional rivals (with profound playoff implications for both), which will go down in Levi's Stadium on Thanksgiving night. Russell Wilson has been throwing for modest totals over the last few games - he has thrown for less than 200 yards passing in four of his last five starts, although he did get over that threshold (barely) last week, with 17/22 for 211 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions. The counter-balance to the anemic passing numbers is that he's been over 70 yards rushing in three straight games, so depending on how your league scores rushing yards for quarterbacks, he may still be a viable fantasy quarterback. But, the lowly passing totals (and Seattle's spread-the-wealth philosophy when it comes to targets) have most of his receivers stuck in fantasy no-man's land. Aside from Marshawn Lynch (3/43/0 receiving vs. Arizona last week), it is likely that neither of the other two receivers that led the Seahawks in receiving last week - Ricardo Lockette (one target for 1/48/0 receiving) or Tony Moeaki (four for 4/34/0) were even started in your local fantasy league. There is little upside to starting a Seahawks' receiver at this point, as the pass distribution is so unpredictable. The 49ers' pass D is ranked second in the NFL this year, averaging 207.2 net yards allowed per game, with 18 passing scores given out balanced by 16 interceptions (first in the NFL) and 22 sacks (tied for 22nd) to date. Washington's Robert Griffin III was held under 100 yards (net) last week, with 11/20 for 77 net yards passing, zero TDs with zero interceptions thrown, and five sacks taken for -29 yards. Two weeks ago Eli Manning was blown up for five interceptions thrown on the way to 22/45 for 265 net yards passing, with one TD and two sacks taken for -15 yards. The 49ers have been all over opposing quarterbacks lately, as you can see. This looks like a bad matchup for the visiting Seahawks.

Lockette ran a medium slant for first down, but it wasn't until the fourth quarter that he was targeted at all.

Lockette only had one opportunity, and he made it count. He got very open downfield for a big gain early in the game.
