Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 16 vs ARI (3 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)
Lockett, of course, is out for the rest of the season. Before the injury, he was building on his long awaited week 15 breakout. He was heavily involved early on, and in fact the only Seahawks receiver with a catch for most of the opening quarter. And twice he came close to scoring. First, he nearly made a spectacular one handed catch heading into the end zone, but couldn't hang on in tight coverage. And on the play that he got hurt, he did make a brilliant one-handed 28 yard catch, but was brought down just shy of the goal line.
2016 Week 15 vs LA (8 / 7 / 130 / 1 rec)
Lockett drew in as the starter opposite Doug Baldwin, and took full advantage of the opportunity. He started out well, making a sweet, leaping catch down the sideline; and in general, seemed to be more featured in the offense than usual. His long TD catch was almost too easy, as he burned the DB and found there was no safety hanging around over the top. Hmm. It was textbook example of why they are called a 'safety' in the first place. Lockett was dangerous whenever he touched the ball, including on kick returns. Lockett appears to be peaking at just the right time.
2016 Week 14 vs GB (6 / 4 / 41 / 0 rec, 2 / 15 / 0 rush)
Lockett was involved in the offense, but did not make a catch until late in the first half. Then, he took his turn in botching a perfectly well thrown ball, by letting the frozen football bounce off of his hands. Lockett was arguably the Seahawks most dangerous player on offense, but the bounces just did not go their way today.
2016 Week 13 vs CAR (6 / 5 / 63 / 0 rec, 1 / 75 / 1 rush)
Lockett was arguably the Seahawks best player in this game. And it's only arguable because Thomas Rawls had a great game, too. Lockett began things with an exciting punt return ñ although in the end, after crossing the entire field en route to a 23 yard gain, it was nullified by a penalty. That truly was only the beginning for him, though. He proceeded to turn short hitch play into a 40 yard gain, rush for a 75 yard score, and make a crucial block on Rawls' long TD run. On top of that, he made a few short catches, doing his part to move the chains, and was a threat every time he returned a punt or kickoff. He's shown that he won't be consistent, but his upside is through the roof, and he is catching fire just in time for the fantasy playoffs.
2016 Week 12 vs TB (6 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Lockett had a game of near misses as he went 0-for-6. His lone contribution in the first half was a nifty handoff that he took as he ran in motion, which he turned into a first down. He had several chances in the second half, but almost all were low percentage throws, and one that he couldn't hang on to after taking a big hit.
2016 Week 11 vs PHI (3 / 2 / 39 / 0 rec)
Lockett's elusiveness was really on display today, as he nearly got to the goal line on a short catch and run from around the 30 yard line -- but it was called back on a penalty. Then, another big gain -- this time it stood -- and just like the earlier catch, he came up just short of the goal line. On a number of plays, including his work as a return man, Lockett looked just plain dangerous. It seems like it's only a matter of time before he explodes with a big game.
2016 Week 10 vs NE (6 / 3 / 72 / 0 rec)
Lockett seems to be catching up to where he left off last season, and finally made a big impact with a few key catches. Early on, he hauled in a nice over the shoulder catch for 36 yards, and would have had a second almost identical catch but instead he settled for a defensive pass interference call. In the two minute drill, Lockett was thrown to twice, but only one was catchable, for a 24 yard gain. He had one opportunity in the red zone late in the game, but the ball was overthrown. Also late in the game, Lockett showed again just how skilled he is at improvising as he made the clutch catch from his scrambling quarterback. If not for the overthrown pass and P.I. call, it's a 100+ yard and a TD line.
2016 Week 9 vs BUF (2 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec, 1 / 13 / 0 rush)
Lockett showed signs of breaking out. He looked electric on both kickoff and punt returns. He made a fantastic play on a reverse handoff that should probably have been for a loss, but instead he broke free and turned it into a ten yard gain and first down. BUT. He still only had one catch on two targets. On his lone reception, Lockett was found a big opening in the zone defense for a 17 yard gain. So on the plus side, after struggling through an injury early on, he looks as healthy as he has all season. On the downside, he is at best the third look in the passing game, but more like option 3B to Jermaine Kearse's 3A.
2016 Week 8 vs NO (4 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)
Lockett still has a long way to go to fulfill his early season promise, but was more involved today than he has been all season. He caught a short comeback pass early on, and in the second quarter, gained 7-yards on a play action screen-ish kind of play. It was the kind of play that confirms that the Seahawks really do want to get the ball in his hands. He also looked strong on kick returns, like he's got his burst back after returning from the lingering leg injury. Lockett had a chance to score on a red zone crossing play but was taken down short of the goal line.
2016 Week 7 vs ARI (2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Lockett is by all accounts over the knee injury that hampered him early in the season, and with his limited opportunities, showed no ill effects. But he is simply not getting targeted enough - behind Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin, primarily - to make an impact.
2016 Week 6 vs ATL (5 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Much was made of Lockett's return to health after the bye week, and while it was great to see him as the kickoff returner right from the start and even targeted early on, the overall results left a lot to be desired. Lockett and Wilson's bread-and-butter play is an odd one: Lockett excels at finding openings while Wilson scrambles. The problem is, with Wilson still nursing an ankle injury, that part of his game is almost non-existent. Lockett's production going forward will depend on the gameplan. He looked fine on all of his catches, but they were far too few.
2016 Week 4 vs NYJ (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Lockett is still nursing an injury, and in fact is still wearing a fairly large brace on his knee. The extent to which the Seahawks are protecting him is unclear. On one hand, it appears that he's slipped down the list as a favorite target, behind Graham, Baldwin, and even Michael. But the fact that those three are having so much success may also mean that there is simply no need to go his way right now. Lockett is a big question mark right now, and now we'll have to wait until after the bye week to see if there are any answers. On another note, he is still taking punt returns, but the addition of C.J. Spiller may have bumped him off kickoff return duties. That's a significant downgrade in leagues that count return yardage.
2016 Week 3 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Lockett was listed as questionable heading into this game, and the Seahawks limited his snaps. He looked great on a long punt return in the second half, but still, it was surprising to see no targets going his way. Chalk it up to the Seahawks having a big lead and there being no need to rush him into action.
2016 Week 2 vs LA (4 / 4 / 99 / 0 rec)
Lockett looked fantastic in the early part of the game, catching a dynamic over the shoulder pass for 35 yards; a quick hitch for a positive gain; and was an end zone target (that was unfortunately overthrown). He and Russell Wilson are clearly on the same page. He made another similar catch, for another 40 yards, but got a rare offensive pass interference call, which was highly subjective as there was nothing blatant on the play, just your typical incidental contact on the way to the ball - in which it's very difficult to judge if any one player is instigating the contact. To be 100% fair, the call went the other way when they tried the same play again a little later. Late in the first half, Lockett sprained his knee but later returned and added another over-the-shoulder 53 yard catch in the final minutes, which still gave the Seahawks hope of eking out the win.
2016 Week 1 vs MIA (8 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Lockett looked like a top 2 receiving option early on as he was seeing short passes thrown his way on the opening drive. He got lucky with a call on what could have been a fumble but was ruled incomplete. Lockett was on a slant pattern and the ball got batted out before he had control of it. Unfortunately, after that he was quiet for most of the game, until he added a short catch in the red zone on the game winning drive.
