WR Tyler Lockett - Seattle Seahawks
|5-10, 182||Born: 9-28-1992||College: Kansas State||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2015|
Week 15: at San Francisco 49ers
FBG says: Good matchup. Russell Wilson and this Seahawks passing offense showed just how low their floor can be last week as Wilson managed only 72 passing yards from 10 completions with no touchdowns and an interception. It was a dreadful offensive showing for most of this game as the Seahawks ran more than twice as often as they passed. Yardage has been hard to come by for Seattle receivers with this offense averaging just 193 passing yards per game--fourth-fewest in the league. In contrast, however, the Seahawks are tied for fifth-most passing touchdowns in the league as Wilson has been the most efficient passer in football when it comes to scoring. Tyler Lockett remains a favorite target as he led the team in receiving last week and has failed to score in just four of his contests--albeit he found the end zone on a two-point conversion last week. Doug Baldwin's disappointing season continues as he failed to suit up last week due to a hip injury with his status remaining questionable coming into this week. The 49ers defense has not scared opposing passing offenses much this season, and there is little reason to believe they will be troublesome for the Seahawks just two weeks removed from allowing Russell Wilson to pass for four touchdowns against them. The potential absence of Doug Baldwin could benefit the 49ers, but their secondary overall is still struggling as of late with 10 passing touchdowns allowed and zero interceptions in their last four games. The 49ers have struggled to make plays all season as this defense has only two interceptions on the year. While they are keeping yardage numbers of opposing quarterbacks to a minimum with just two games of over 202 passing yards allowed in their last seven outings, that is mostly due to teams simply not needing to pass as they are playing from ahead or facing a struggling 49ers offensive attack. The play from Richard Sherman has gone downhill as the season progressed, while safety Jaquiski Tartt has been losing playing time due to ineffectiveness as he may still be suffering from a lingering shoulder injury. D.J. Reed Jr has been a bright spot at safety though, as he certainly has earned the increase in playing time and could pose a threat to the big play upside of Tyler Lockett.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 14 vs MIN (6 / 5 / 42 / 0 rec, 2 / -3 / 0 rush)
Lockett was the most reliable receiver of the bunch, and without him, it would be scary to see the potential passing line in this one. All catches were of the shorter variety, but he made a few clutch plays. Namely, coming back to make a low diving catch to convert a key 3rd down; a key play in which he drew a long pass interference call (which set up a field goal), and a nifty behind-scrimmage crossing pattern to secure a 2-pt conversion late in the game.
2018 Week 13 vs SF (2 / 1 / 52 / 1 rec, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)
Lockett only had one catch, but his presence was felt all day. He made his TD catch look easy; a 52-yard bomb from Wilson that floated right to him in the moment he separated from his coverage, which he then ran in easily. He also brought a kickoff return all the way to the 49ers twenty, and might have gone all the way if he hadn't slowed to fend off a tackler who couldn't actually reach him. In the second half, Lockett drew a long pass interference penalty, and also rushed for a 10-yard first down. Lockett is typically a low volume receiver, though this week was even less than usual, due to only 12 passes being thrown to wide receivers. We also keep saying his fantasy numbers are touchdown dependent - which they are - but then, he keeps on scoring touchdowns.
2018 Week 12 vs CAR (5 / 5 / 107 / 1 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)
Lockett performed well overall, and especially in the clutch. In the first half, he had a nifty catch-and-run for 27 yards. To open the second half, he capped off the Seahawks drive with a low catch that was ruled just inside the goal line. And late in the game, Lockett really made his presence known, with a huge catch down the sideline, that set up the game winning field goal. His rapport with Wilson has always been strong, so expect the heroics (if not the volume) to continue.
2018 Week 11 vs GB (5 / 5 / 71 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Lockett started out as a weapon in the ground game, as the Seahawks tried to get in on the 'Jet Sweep' trend. Their version included a look back to the QB for a lateral pass, but Lockett saw he wasn't quite open and ran for a short gain instead. Later, Lockett impressed making a catch on a long comeback route in traffic. He also drew the Packers safety into a big pass interference call on a deep pass, in which he had clearly beaten the cornerback for the ball. No touchdowns on the day, which is what generally makes or breaks Lockett's fantasy score.
2018 Week 10 vs LAR (6 / 5 / 67 / 1 rec, 1 / 18 / 0 rush)
Lockett is still the Seahawks most dangerous receiving threat, as Russell Wilson found him all over the field, including a 23-yard pass into the corner of the end zone. Late in the game, he provided a downfield target and moved the chains, in an ultimately failed final drive. Lockett also ran the ball once, on the opening drive, turning what looked to be a loss, into a 15 yard gain, as he eluded the defender on a reverse play. With his 7th TD on the year, he's proved his worth, but given the Seahawks newfound propensity for the running game, his yardage totals are still volatile.
2018 Week 9 vs LAC (4 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)
Lockett's presence was never really felt in this game. He was most noticeable in the two minute drills of each half, especially in the 4th quarter. At the end of the game (literally, on the play in which the clock ran out), he nearly made a leaping catch in the end zone, while being absolutely mauled by the defender, but couldn't quite hang on. He did, however, draw a pass interference call, giving the Seahawks one more chance from in close.
2018 Week 8 vs DET (2 / 2 / 34 / 1 rec, 2 / 13 / 0 rush)
Lockett's volume was low but he once again came up big with a touchdown (that's six in seven games, if you're counting). The scoring play was a highlight reel grab in which he seemed to barely have separation on the defensive back, and QB Russell Wilson just dropped the perfect pass into his arms in the end zone. He's definitely got a good thing going with Wilson, which means he could actually keep this up as the season goes on.
2018 Week 6 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 13 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Lockett, who had a reasonably quiet day overall, still managed to bring in his 5th touchdown reception of the year. Between the opening play, in which he took a Jet Sweep handoff for seven yards, and his score, he was not very visible in the passing game.
2018 Week 5 vs LAR (5 / 3 / 98 / 1 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Lockett is finally emerging from the shadows, with his fourth score in five games this season. He has yet to top 100 yards, but came close in this one. Add to that his prowess as kickoff returner (which last week, was given to rookie Rashaad Penny, so keep an eye on that going forward), and he may be the most valuable offensive player, after Russell Wilson. In the first half, Lockett showcased his return skills, ran a reverse that he nearly broke for a big gain, made a big play after beating the pants off of a cornerback that was playing back like a safety, and made a great play coming back to grab an alley-oop like jump ball at the end of a quarterback scramble. He saved the best for the second half, though, when he split the safeties on a deep post pattern, caught the ball wide open, and saw daylight to the end zone.
2018 Week 4 vs ARI (6 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)
This would mark Lockett's first game of the season in which he did not score. In addition to giving way on kickoff returns to Rashaad Penny, Lockett did not see much work in the first half as a receiver, either. Near the end of the half, he made a short reception, and in the second half was a little busier, but it was nothing to write home about. The highlight was a short gain on a screen pass, as the Seahawks passing game was extremely conservative. His targets were in line with other three games this season, but unlike those games, he was afforded no downfield opportunities.
2018 Week 3 vs DAL (6 / 4 / 77 / 1 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Lockett continues to impress, but his fantasy production is still low volume and therefore TD dependent. He found himself wide open on his 52-yard scoring play, as the Cowboys blew their coverage completely, and ran the ball in easily. His other catches were quick hits - which was the prevalent theme of the passing game all day - for short gains.
2018 Week 2 vs CHI (7 / 5 / 60 / 1 rec)
Lockett was nearly invisible in the opening three quarters, but made his mark in the 4th. The only sighting of him early on was in the final minute of the first half, in which he snagged the ball on a quick slant pattern, to help set up an end-of-half field goal. Late in the game, however, he was targeted three times on deep patterns, with the third one being the charm. The ball was thrown up for him in extremely tight - actually, that doesn't quite describe it; let's call it like it was: saran-wrap-tight-one-on-one coverage - at the back corner of the end zone. Lockett played the ball and timed it perfectly to bring in the improbable touchdown pass. He followed that up with one more catch, an 11 yard gain on a final-minute broken play as Russell Wilson scrambled and found him for the catch.
2018 Week 1 vs DEN (4 / 3 / 59 / 1 rec)
Lockett was all but invisible for the first half of the game, but looked excellent when his number was called. Early on, he caught a couple of short reads, a screen and swing pass, for very small gains. It was not until the 4th quarter that he made his presence known, streaking downfield, wide open on a post pattern, easily catching the well thrown ball and running for a 51 yard score. With Baldwin out for an extended period, expect Lockett to pick up some of the slack.
