Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 10 vs SF (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush - 4.4 points, $7700)
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 - 33.7 points, $7500)
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 - 13 points, $7200)
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 - 14.3 points, $6500)
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 - 10.3 points, $6300)
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 - 12.3 points, $6300)
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 - 7.1 points, $6600)
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 - 26.9 points, $6600)
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 - 12.9 points, $6700)
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 - 10.9 points, $6800)
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.
