Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 19 vs GB (10 / 9 / 136 / 1 rec)
Lockett was the Seahawks leading receiver by a wide margin. His first contribution was a 28-yard reception down the sideline, in which he had a couple of steps on the defender, and easily pulled in a perfect throw from Wilson. This play set up the field goal - and only first half points - late in the first quarter. Still in the first half, he added a big play of 31 yards over the middle, continuing to show versatility with his knack for finding openings zone defenses. He converted a short 4th-and-1 in the red zone, on a quick rollout play, getting the ball almost to the goal line, setting up the Seahawks first touchdown. Lockett's TD was a short catch in the end zone, that was a deceptively good play. Wilson had rolled out and as Lockett jockeyed for position in man coverage, Wilson's pass floated to him - wide open -- at the exact moment that he found separation.
2019 Week 18 vs PHI (8 / 4 / 62 / 0 rec)
Lockett did all of his damage in the first half, while DK Metcalf was in the spotlight with his career game. Lockett's catches made an impact though, with three of his four catches going for first downs. And he made a highlight reel play on the sidelines, almost impossibly touching both feet in bounds while diving for a catch. The play was initially ruled incomplete, but was overturned when challenged. Overall, his rapport with Wilson seems to have returned, but his volume may not rise as long as Metcalf keeps it up on the other side of the field.
2019 Week 17 vs SF (7 / 6 / 51 / 1 rec)
Lockett was efficient against a tough defense that covered him well and gave him almost no room for yards after the catch. This resulted in his per catch average being nearly five yards below his season average of 13.2. It took until the third quarter, but Lockett made the catch that finally put the Seahawks on the board. It was a vintage Wilson-to-Lockett play, as Lockett found the smallest of openings while Wilson scrambled and threw a pin-point pass just before crossing the line of scrimmage.
2019 Week 16 vs ARI (8 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Lockett was simply shut down. He caught only 1-of-8 targets thrown his way. His route running was strong, and Russell Wilson basically force fed him on deep routes in the fourth quarter, but nothing was going right for them. On one in particular, Wilson threw a bomb to him in double coverage near the goal line - really, as perfect a throw as you'll get in that situation, and Lockett was in perfect position - but the defense was right there, too. The rapport is still there, so it's hard to see Lockett not finding his groove again, after putting this dud behind him.
2019 Week 15 vs CAR (9 / 8 / 120 / 1 rec)
After a rough few weeks statistically, in part due to a shin injury and a flu that had him playing down ten pounds this week, Lockett bounced back in a big way. He started small, catching a screen pass for ten yards, and even on that play it was evident that he had his old legs back. On the next drive, he caught (yet another) near miracle pass. He tracked the ball amazingly well on a flag route, running under to catch it just ahead of the defender, for a 44-yard gain. Lockett's touchdown came in the second quarter, as he again found a pocket in the Panthers zone defense and easily brought in the 19-yard pass near the goal line. His only missed target was an overthrow near the goal line. In the final quarter, he caught a short red zone pass as Wilson scrambled, then made a nice inside spin move to elude the defender and get near the first down marker.
2019 Week 14 vs LAR (6 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
Lockett was efficient, catching four of his five targets (and the fifth was slightly overthrown), but put up a mediocre yardage total for a second straight week after recovering from a shin injury that seems to have hampered his game in past weeks. This week, he was not on the injury list, and looked all the way back, but was unable to make any big plays. His game started with hitch pass that looked promising, but he didn't get far as the defense bore down on him quickly. His other three were a slant for a near first down, and a couple of athletic catches over the middle that moved the chains. Near the end of the game, he was the target of a deep throw, but Lockett was unable to both beat his defender or get to the slightly overthrown pass, which resulted in an interception.
2019 Week 13 vs MIN (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Lockett was shut down completely, for the first time in over two years. No catches on three targets. It's possible that his lingering shin injury is contributing to his lackluster results these last two weeks, but he did play the full set of snaps, so it's hard to come to any firm conclusion. His near misses included an end zone target that was thrown low and tipped at the last moment; a pass over the middle that was just out of his reach as he was again very tightly covered; and a deep ball that was simply not catchable.
2019 Week 12 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 38 / 0 rec)
Watching this game, you could be forgiven if you said, "Why isn't Tyler Lockett playing today?". For most of the game, he was really that invisible. His first target came in the third quarter, a deep ball that was overthrown. He and Lockett connected on the next one, which was vintage Wilson-to-Lockett, as the receiver actually had to slow down to track the deep pass in coverage, but pulled it in perfectly. Lockett was coming off an injury, but also played almost the full snap count for the offense, so that can't be the only answer. The passing game was misfiring for most of the game, and it really seemed that what was missing was a little more effort to get the ball his way. This game should be seen as an outlier. Look for Lockett to get back on track next week.
2019 Week 10 vs SF (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Lockett left the game with what was said to be a serious injury. He has since been discharged from hospital, and all accounts are optimistic that he'll be fine after the upcoming bye week. Before leaving the game, he hadn't made much of an impact, with only three short catches to show (on four targets).
2019 Week 9 vs TB (18 / 13 / 152 / 2 rec)
Lockett started the game on fire and never looked back. He was 2-for-2, both which went for first downs, and the third catch was an excellent corner route that blew by the defender and caught Wilson's perfect throw easily in the back of the end zone. Rather than describe each of his catches, it's fair to say in this case, that he caught the ball quite literally all over the field. Lockett moved the chains in the 2-minute drill, and then tied the game with another spectacular catch in the back of the end zone. Lockett typically excels by finding openings in the zone defense, but this game he had perfect throws in man coverage as well, as the play calling became a little more aggressive. It was a fantastic day, and given his rapport with Russell Wilson, he should stand a good chance to keep on rolling, even with the 49ers on the schedule next week.
2019 Week 8 vs ATL (6 / 6 / 100 / 0 rec)
Lockett caught all of his targets, many of them in tight coverage, showing once again an excellent rapport with Russell Wilson. Lockett started off catching the ball well behind scrimmage on a reverse-screen play, turning it into a 15-yard gain. Then, a 14-yard pickup over the middle, finding a nice opening in the zone defense. Lockett continued his penchant for snagging improbable receptions, as he was just barely ahead of his man on a crossing route, yet somehow caught it in stride - making the incredibly skilled play look so easy. In the red zone, he made another magical/easy-looking catch in tight coverage, bringing the Seahawks to the 7. In the second half, he added to his total, finding a nice opening on the left side of the field for 19 yards. He just missed on what would have been his biggest play of the day, as Lockett was wide open and had the pass is on his fingertips, but couldn't bring it in. As the run game broke down slightly in the final quarter, Lockett became the preferred target as the Seahawks worked on protecting their lead. On the final scoring drive, he and Wilson accounted for most of the yardage.
2019 Week 7 vs BAL (7 / 5 / 61 / 1 rec, 1 / -3 / 0 rush)
As Lockett so often does, he very quietly led the team in receiving yards. Included were a couple of highlight-worthy catches. First, his diving TD catch, as Wilson tossed the ball to an open space, which caught the defender flat footed, and let Lockett do the work. Lockett was close to getting a second score on a throw that took him just out of bounds in the end zone. What makes Lockett special though, is his versatility. He made a nice possession catch in the second half, moving the chains, and showed great skill at tracking a deep lob over the middle for a 33-yard gain.
2019 Week 6 vs CLE (5 / 5 / 75 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Lockett continued his highly efficient rapport with Russell Wilson, but was not used much until the final scoring drive late in the 4th quarter, which accounted for three of his five receptions. During that drive, he had another catch called back on penalty, and he was stripped of an apparent TD on that drive as well, when the call was reversed (on the next play, Carson punched it in from the 1 yard line). Lockett's catches were all quietly impressive, as he found space in coverage, and seemingly came from out of nowhere to reel in a couple of sideline catches. It's clear that Wilson leans on him heavily when the chips are down, but outside of that, his usage is hard to predict.
2019 Week 5 vs LAR (4 / 4 / 51 / 1 rec, 1 / -8 / 0 rush)
Lockett made quite the highlight catch in the first quarter, as he somehow swooped in to catch a lobbed pass in the back corner of the end zone while managing to drag his toes in bounds at near full speed. He had a merely 'good' game overall, but to put things in perspective, Lockett tied for the lead in targets, with only four (all of which, he caught). He also continues to return kicks, and added a 33 yard kickoff return.
2019 Week 4 vs ARI (4 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
Lockett sometimes doesn't see any targets for a while, but by now we know the rapport is there with Wilson, and usually it's just a matter of time. But as the Seahawks built a lead, they leaned a bit more on the running game and short passing, which meant a pedestrian day for Lockett. Later in the game, Wilson seemed to be looking his way more often. Lockett made a very nice catch in the red zone as Wilson threaded the needle with a 28-yard pass. And in the 4th quarter, Lockett took a big hit to make a first down on a comeback route. He had one end zone target late in game, which drew a Pass Interference penalty, but he could not come down with the ball.
2019 Week 3 vs NO (14 / 11 / 154 / 1 rec)
As always, Lockett had an excellent rapport with Russell Wilson. He really showed his versatility in this game, catching the ball all over the field, including several deep routes. His TD was quietly beautiful, as he led the mismatched linebacker through the end zone, only to separate easily to snag the ball in the corner. He had another similar chance, but Wilson overthrew him. On the final drive, when there was a very outside shot of a score plus onside kick to get back in the game, but was essentially garbage time, Lockett padded his stats a bit to contribute to his career day.
2019 Week 2 vs PIT (12 / 10 / 79 / 0 rec)
Lockett's line tells the story. Ten catches, but no big gains. He was Russell Wilson's security blanket underneath, and was targeted unsuccessfully on a couple of deeper routes. The Steelers did a great job of closing in after the catch, limiting his overall yardage. He did take one catch for about 20 yards, a quick out in the flats, which gave him some open field to work with.
2019 Week 1 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 44 / 1 rec)
Lockett was Mr. Invisible until the fourth quarter, when he finally found himself inside the ten, and wide open on play action pass play. He caught the deep ball over the middle at the 7 yard line and ran in easily. Without that catch, one had to wonder if he was going to see the ball at all.
Latest NewsSeahawks | Seattle's season ends despite late rally (Sun Jan 12, 10:11 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 21-of-31 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown as the team fell behind by 18 points twice but made a late charge before falling short 28-23 in Sunday's NFC Divisional Round playoff game. Wilson led the team in rushing with 64 yards, while RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 26 yards and two scores on 12 attempts. WR Tyler Lockett was highly efficient, turning his 10 targets into nine catches for 136 yards and a touchdown. WR DK Metcalf was held somewhat in check after setting a playoff record for most receiving yards by a rookie one week ago, finishing with four receptions for 59 yards. TE Jacob Hollister hauled in five catches for 47 yards. RB Travis Homer chipped in 27 more yards through the air to go along with his 13 rushing yards. CB Tre Flowers, LB K.J. Wright and DE Jadeveon Clowney paced Seattle with seven tackles apiece. LB Shaquem Griffin tallied one of Seattle's two sacks, while Wright and Clowney combined on the other. Our View: Wilson was once again outstanding in a playoff loss. If the Seahawks had any kind of effective running game, they might have been okay in this one. Their defense has room to improve and the Seahawks will still be in the top of the NFC picture next year.
link to story Seahawks | Seattle advances to face Green Bay (Sun Jan 5, 07:44 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 18-of-30 passes for 325 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card Game Sunday, Jan. 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also led the team with 45 rushing yards. RB Marshawn Lynch rushed six times for just seven yards, but he had a touchdown and 25 receiving yards. WR DK Metcalf had seven grabs for a game-best 160 yards and a touchdown, while WR Tyler Lockett had four grabs for 62 yards. WR David Moore also chipped in with 57 yards on two grabs, while TE Jacob Hollister had two grabs for 16 yards on four targets. S Bradley McDougald had 11 total stops with a sack, two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit, while LB/DE Jadeveon Clowney also had five total stops, a sack, two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit. Our View: The Seahawks are built for a deep postseason run and they got their first game out of the way. Playing on the road against the Packers is going to be much more difficult. Seattle didn't run the ball well against the Eagles and QB Russell Wilson was the team's leading rusher with 45 yards. They'll need to be better on the ground if they want to take down the Packers in the Divisional Round.
