Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs ARI (4 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Lockett made his presence felt in the return game, as he brought back one for a score early in the first quarter. In the passing game, Lockett did some nice route running and showed excellent vision on short routes mainly, notably on a crossing route that got the Seahawks a clutch first down.
2017 Week 16 vs DAL (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Like most of the Seahawks receivers, Lockett was a non-factor against the Cowboys. He had scored twice in recent weeks, but it looks like the honeymoon is over and he's back to boom-or-bust status.
2017 Week 15 vs LAR (3 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)
In a game in which no Seahawks receiver had any fantasy value, Lockett was a true afterthought, with two catches for a mere eight yards. He just never really factored in, as Wilson going through his progressions, rarely got as far as Lockett before the pass rush got to him.
2017 Week 14 vs JAX (5 / 4 / 90 / 1 rec, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)
Lockett had a great overall game, though it took a 74-yard TD with under four minutes to go, to make his day fantasy worthy. He had a chance in the end zone earlier in the game, but wasn't able to hang on to the leaping one-handed reception he would have had to make to hold on to it. He's a home run threat every game, but lacks the volume to find any consistency. The fact that Jimmy Graham disappeared in this game gave him a few more opportunities than usual.
2017 Week 13 vs PHI (2 / 2 / 17 / 1 rec)
Lockett continues to show a great mix of big play ability and reliability on short routes. As with a few others on the team, the problem here is volume. His two catches were memorable - first, he showed some shifty moves on a short pass, picking up yards after the catch; and second was a goal line catch in which he found an opening underneath the coverage - but, as is typical, in the end it was still only two catches.
2017 Week 12 vs SF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Lockett was not a factor in any facet of the game. He saw one deep target in the end zone, and the throw was good - but the coverage was better.
2017 Week 11 vs ATL (5 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)
Lockett's big contribution came as the primary kick returner, in which he consistently gave the Seahawks excellent field position, finishing with 197 yards on five returns. As a receiver, he was looked to early on a few times, on short slot routes, and occasionally as the game wore on. He once again was option 3a/b (behind Baldwin and Graham), in tandem with Paul Richardson, so the fantasy ceiling is pretty low each week, even if his actual contribution to the team is significant.
2017 Week 10 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Lockett seemed more visible than usual, possibly due to Paul Richardson nursing a groin injury - but in the end, he only had the one catch on two targets, same as Richardson. Lockett did have a chance at a deep ball, but the coverage was simply too good for him to bring it in. Lockett and Richardson are both talented and are essentially sharing the productivity of one receiver, dampening each of their values considerably.
2017 Week 9 vs WAS (8 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Last week, Lockett went over 100 yards with 8 targets and 6 receptions. This week, the targets were the same, but Wilson's throws were all over the place and so Lockett only finished with two catches. He still looked to be in fine form in doing so, especially in the 4th quarter, when they needed him most, but unfortunately there are too many quality options in this offense - on a good day - to predict how the ball will be distributed on any given week.
2017 Week 8 vs HOU (8 / 6 / 121 / 0 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)
Lockett made clutch grabs right from the start, moving the chains consistently on his catches. Given how small his frame is, he showed great positioning on several catches, after adjusting to the ball, it looked like it was just floating in there to him. He really came on in the final quarter, with a big 54 yard gain, and showed again that his incredible at finding the open space while Russell Wilson scrambles.
2017 Week 7 vs NYG (7 / 4 / 29 / 0 rec, 3 / 15 / 0 rush)
Lockett is going to be hard pressed to have a truly productive fantasy game, yet he is immensely valuable to the Seahawks. As a returner, he is electric. As a receiver, his uncanny knack for getting open while Russell Wilson scrambles is nothing short of incredible. And he tends to get 2-3 carries each game as well. Not to mention that he plays so much bigger than his 5' 10", 180 lbs. frame would suggest. He did all this and more against the Giants, which translated into an acceptable but not special 44 yards from scrimmage, plus 70 return yards. This while: fighting hard enough for an almost sure interception that it was a Seahawks first down instead; taking a big hit (and getting right back up) after leaping for the ball in the end zone; and making a hugely athletic catch in the end zone - but, then getting it called back on a Pass Interference call.
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.
