Week 7: at New York Giants

All WR vs NYG

FBG says: Tough matchup. Here's where the Seahawks' real dynamism lies. Armed with playmakers at wideout, tight end, and running back, quarterback Russell Wilson is fully capable of flipping the switch and producing a huge passing line. Over Weeks 3 and 4, he completed 67% of his throws for 668 yards and 6 touchdowns. Of course, sandwiched around those games have been 3 of under 200 yards and just 3 combined scores - all against relatively weak pass defenses. It's never easy going behind an offensive line this bad, and Wilson is similarly capable of dud games in which he's harassed relentlessly. He's definitely skilled enough to move around and create big plays with his arm, so he can never be counted out, but his big weeks aren't easy to project. Wilson hasn't focused as tightly on wideout Doug Baldwin as he has in recent years, spreading the ball around to his playmakers. He has enough of them to bring a dynamic outlook in any given week, but again, it's hard to count on him having opportunity to deliver the ball downfield well due to the weakness of his line. The Giants' strong yet inconsistent secondary looked to take a step forward in Week 6, even with star slot cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspended. Fellow stud cover man Janoris Jenkins was down a bit, losing his battle with Demaryius Thomas, but that will happen. The real news was the improved play of opposite cornerback Eli Apple, who'd been roasted and benched throughout the young season but shone brightly last Sunday. If Apple can keep the momentum up, he'll paper over what has been an enormous and exploitable hole on the back end. All in all, the Giants secondary can be beaten - it's an aggressive unit that will occasionally guess wrong and allow big completions. But the sporadic dominance of Jenkins and Rodgers-Cromartie, as well as the promise of former first-round pick Apple, typically creates long days for opposing quarterback/receiver pairings. Prior to last Sunday, no wideout had topped 70 yards against them, and several WR1 types (Dez Bryant, Alshon Jeffery, Golden Tate, and Keenan Allen) had all been more or less neutralized.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 5 vs LAR (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

Lockett did not have a huge day as far as volume goes, but was relied on often in the clutch. He was especially looked to on third downs, and did not disappoint, pulling in those attempts and getting first down yardage each time. He also proved to be a great weapon on the ground, with a 7 yard red zone carry, but (there are a lot of 'but's' with all the receivers this week...) Lockett simply did not see enough volume to be a fantasy factor.

2017 Week 4 vs IND (5 / 4 / 67 / 0 rec, 2 / 24 / 0 rush)

Lockett was a big part of Seattle's success once they finally started moving the chains against the Colts. He was used twice as a runner, on a reverse and a motion handoff, both for first downs. Lockett also had a chance in the end zone, though a slim one, as the ball was thrown into double coverage. He showed his usual uncanny knack for finding the open space, and continued to be a reliable target when Wilson had to scramble.

2017 Week 3 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)

Lockett is as hit-and-miss as they come. He is very good when improvising as Wilson scrambles, and had a couple of gains on broken plays. Overall, he was having a pretty quiet game until the fourth quarter - coincidentally when Doug Baldwin had left the game? He is a clear upgrade if Baldwin misses any time.

2017 Week 2 vs SF (9 / 6 / 64 / 0 rec)

His first catch was a Tyler Lockett special - as Wilson scrambled, Lockett found an opening underneath and with the catch, brought the Seahwaks into red zone. It's strange, but he somehow appears less effective when actually targeted on his route. Lockett tied Baldwin for the most targets on the day, but it was almost all short stuff, with little opportunity to gain yards after the catch. Late in the game, Lockett had a chance with a deep ball on a 'what the heck' throw because of an offside, and came close - though he never really had much of a chance on it.

2017 Week 1 vs GB (3 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Lockett's snap count was presumably held back some as he is coming back from last season's broken leg injury. He looked as though back to health in every way. It will be interesting to see if he comes back fully to the #2 WR role, or if the Seahawks will continue to use him purely as a slot/3rd receiver. Lockett looked dangerous on his kickoff returns - he appears to be back 100% from his broken leg. It's hard to say from one game whether he will eventually fill the #2 WR shoes, but for now he is behind Paul Richardson on the depth chart.
