WR Tyler Lockett - Seattle Seahawks
|5-10, 182||Born: 9-28-1992||College: Kansas State||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2015|
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.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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).
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.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 15 vs SF (2 / 2 / 45 / 0 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
Lockett had a very nice catch on the first drive, down the sideline and caught over his shoulder for a big gain. And then he went silent. Well, not entirely, but that catch would account for more than half of his total. With a healthy running game, and Russell Wilson often having to throw the ball away quickly on passing plays, the targets simply weren't there for Lockett.
2018 Week 16 vs KC (5 / 4 / 99 / 0 rec)
Lockett seemed to be forgotten until late in the first half; he most definitely had taken a back seat to Doug Baldwin, who commanded nearly half (!) of Russell Wilson's targets. When called upon, however, Lockett proved as reliable as ever. He had a knack for finding a little pocket in the zone defense, and Wilson hit him a few times when he found similar openings. Unfortunately, Lockett never found much room to run after the catch, an area he usually excels in. He had one big play, a perfect catch down the sideline, while covered very tightly; and, as he seems to at least once per game, also drew a crucial pass interference call on a pass that could have been a TD. It's safe to say his value has taken a slight hit - but, as defenses are reminded to key on the red-hot Baldwin, Lockett should have no trouble picking up the slack.
2018 Week 17 vs ARI (2 / 2 / 66 / 1 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
It was as if Lockett was in for only two plays, and on those two plays, he got wide open (as he continues to find openings in seemingly every zone defense he faces). Lockett was on the field for more than that, of course, but those two were all he needed to make an impact. The first catch allowed him to walk into the end zone from 29 yards out, late in the opening quarter; and in the final minute of the game, a similar catch, for 37 yards, set up the game winning field goal.
2018 Week 18 vs DAL (6 / 4 / 120 / 0 rec)
Not counting Russell Wilson, Lockett was the Seahawks most dangerous weapon against the Cowboys. He beat them three times for big gains, and each time was wide open. He also added a big return that set up an end-of-half FG attempt (that unfortunately missed). His biggest catch was in the second half, a 53-yard gain inside the two minute warning. Even though the Dallas D HAD to know they were looking for a big play, somehow Lockett managed to not only get open, but got way ahead of his man. If not for a lone safety playing extra deep, there would have been nothing between him and the goal line.
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.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
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.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
2015 Week 1 vs LA (4 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec)
Tyler Lockett's first NFL catch came off a screen pass on the first drive for a 7-yard gain. After a Rams three-and-out on their first series Lockett picks up right where he left off in the preseason and takes yet another punt return back for a TD. He was consistent in his targets catching all 4 passes thrown his way. He makes a nice catch down the sideline with 22 seconds left in the first half that help set up a game-tying field goal.
2015 Week 2 vs GB (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
The electrifying rookie was held without a return touchdown against the Packers but did add two catches for 17 yards. His first catch was on the first drive of the game where Wilson threw a quick pass to him at the line of scrimmage where he was tackled instantly for no gain. His long reception of the game came at 13.45 of the third quarter where Russell Wilson hit him with a deep pass through the middle out of the shotgun for a 17-yard gain. Green Bay did a good job bottling up Lockett on returns all day but he did have a nice return on the 3rd drive of the game where he cut all the way across the field and ran up the sideling to about the 40 yard line.
2015 Week 3 vs CHI (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
When the Seattle Seahawks need a big play on special teams it always seems to be Tyler Lockett stepping up. After an abysmal first half Locket would take the opening half kickoff 105 yards untouched for the touchdown, the longest kickoff return in franchise history. It was a well-executed return where Lockett showed great acceleration and took advantage of a huge lane through the Bears defense. It was Lockett's second return touchdown of the season after taking a punt to the house in Week 1. He is becoming a great weapon in this offense although not yet featured in a true wide receiver role. In the fourth quarter Russell Wilson looked deep to Lockett in the end zone off of a bootleg right but the pass was dropped in good coverage by Chicago. Before Lockett's kickoff return Seattle was able to gain a big return from Richard Sherman off of the same trick play that was executed against them last season by the St. Louis Rams. Lockett want to the left side of the field calling a fair catch while the ball was actually headed to Richard Sherman on the right side of the field. This misdirection allowed Sherman a 64-yard return along the sideline that led to a Seahawks field goal.
2015 Week 4 vs DET (5 / 4 / 58 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
Tyler Lockett was not just involved on kick returns in this game but accumulated four catches for 58 yards in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions. Lockett lead the Seahawks offense in yards in this game before a late 50-yard catch by Jermaine Kearse but caught the majority of his balls off short passes from Russell Wilson. He did muff a punt in the 3rd quarter of this game, but the Detroit Lions were unable to come away with points on that drive. His long punt return of the night was for just 14 yards but he does have two kick-return touchdowns through 4 games this season.
2015 Week 5 vs CIN (5 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
It could have been a much bigger day for Tyler Lockett as he caught just two of his five targets for a total of 29 yards. He had a 40-yard catch overturned in the third quarter along the sideline upon video replay where he was unable to keep both feet in bounds.
2015 Week 6 vs CAR (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The rookie with big play ability was held without a target in Week 6 and underwhelmed on both punt and kick returns. His skill-set is not one of just a gadget player and return man but Seattle refuses to use him consistently in this offense.
2015 Week 7 vs SF (5 / 5 / 79 / 1 rec)
It was a nice game for Tyler Lockett as he continues to show he is not just a gadget player in this offense if given the opportunity. He caught all five of his targets in this game and had 79 yards and a touchdown for Seattle in Week 7. He has done the majority of his damage in the return game this season but he finally caught his first offensive touchdown of the year in the 2nd quarter as he was able to beat tight coverage and come down with a perfectly thrown deep ball from Russell Wilson for the 43-yard touchdown. His usage has been inconsistent this season and volume will continue to be an issue for players at the skill positions in Seattle.
2015 Week 8 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Lockett was not as big a part of the passing game as he was against the 49ers but still secured three catches for 36 yards in the Seahawks Week 8 win against the Cowboys. He had a key 3rd down play on the game winning drive where he took a short bubble screen from Russell Wilson right for 16 yards, his longest play of the game. He returned just one kick return and one punt return in this game but will continue to be an elite weapon for this offense on special teams.
2015 Week 10 vs ARI (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
The positive thing was Lockett played 47-of-63 snaps in Week 10 against the Cardinals but he was held to just one catch and seven yards. He lost targets to Paul Richardson although he did leave the game in the first half with a hamstring injury. It's a shame but Lockett's role on this offense will continue to be largely on kick returns and special teams.
2015 Week 11 vs SF (5 / 4 / 48 / 2 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Rookie Tyler Lockett continued to show in Week 11 that he is much more than just a gadget and special teams player. He was second on the team in targets with five and added 48 yards and two scores to his season long totals. His first touchdown was a fantastically thrown ball by Russell Wilson where Lockett ran right by a 49ers defender in the slot for a 24-yard score. His second touchdown he broke multiple tackles at the goal line off of a slant route for an 11-yard touchdown. He has not shown much consistency this year but his big-play threat in this offense is real. Both his touchdowns came in the first half.
2015 Week 12 vs PIT (3 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Rookie Tyler Lockett took a bit of a backseat to Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse in this one even though the offense had five touchdowns through the air against the Steelers. Lockett caught all three of his targets for 38 yards in Week 12. He was primarily used as a deep threat and was the focal point of the Steelers defense on Baldwin's first touchdown. He could see more targets with Jimmy Graham done for the year and his skill set puts him as more than just a special teams and situational player in this offense.
2015 Week 13 vs MIN (7 / 7 / 90 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Rookie Tyler Lockett put a nice game together in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings where he hauled in seven-of-seven targets for 90 yards. That is the most catches in a game Lockett has had in his career and also set a new career high in yards. He is averaging over four catches per game and nearly 60 yards in his past three games but has not been a consistent part of the offense this year, regardless of his apparent skill as a playmaker.
2015 Week 14 vs BAL (7 / 6 / 104 / 2 rec)
Rookie Tyler Lockett was electric for the Seahawks in Week 14 piling 104 yards and two touchdowns off six receptions. He was targeted seven times in this one with Russell Wilson going off for a fourth straight game. The injury to Jimmy Graham has given Lockett an opportunity to be more than just a return and gadget play threat in this offense. He now has four touchdowns in the Seahawks last four games and has been targeted 22 times over that stretch. His first touchdown pass came on the first drive of the game and was for 8-yards with Wilson out of the shotgun. Off a great timing throw from Russell Wilson, Lockett would score a second time in the fourth quarter catching a ball in stride down the right sideline. He beat cornerback Ladarius Webb badly for the 40-yard score. He's clearly a dynamic threat with the football and can stretch the field effectively for this offense.
2015 Week 15 vs CLE (7 / 5 / 55 / 1 rec)
Within the dominance of Wilson and Baldwin it is going a bit unnoticed how much rookie Tyler Lockett is breaking out as well as of late. Lockett caught 5-of-7 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 and now has seven targets in each of his last three games. It is encouraging to see Seattle use Lockett as more of a typical receiver in the past month and he is certainly taking advantage of the opportunity. Lockett's touchdown came down the left sideline for a long 27-yard touchdown in tight coverage. The score would give the Seahawks a 27-10 lead early in the fourth quarter. Also Lockett made an impressive eight-yard catch earlier in the game that was highly contested.
2015 Week 16 vs LA (7 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Tyler Lockett was targeted with the first pass of the game, but his first reception didn't come until midway through the first quarter. That play gained a 13 yards and first down on a bubble screen. Wilson missed Lockett when he was open downfield on the very next play before he caught another bubble screen. This time he was tackled in space short of the line of scrimmage on 3rd-and-5. Lockett was heavily involved if not heavily productive in the first quarter. The second quarter saw him as the target when Wilson was intercepted. The quarterback heaved the ball into double coverage and Lockett had no chance of getting to it. Later in the second quarter, Lockett was the target for Wilson again on a long down-and-distance, this time he found the receiver for 16 yards on 2nd-and-17. Lockett had a quiet second half. He was evaluated for a concussion but returned and dropped his only target when a Rams defender overpowered him at the catch point.
2015 Week 17 vs ARI (4 / 2 / 36 / 0 rec, 2 / 7 / 0 rush)
Rookie Tyler Lockett was the clear x-factor for the Seahawks in Week 17. Although he was not a huge factor on offense with just 36 yards on two receptions the Cardinals were completely incapable of keeping the dynamic punt returner in check. He repeatedly gave Seattle great field position, which Russell Wilson continued to take advantage of. In the first half the Seahawks could not be stopped and a massive punt return set up the Jermaine Kearse touchdown. His four first half punt returns totaled 139 yards where the Arizona offense only had 147 total yards at the time. It could have been even more ridiculous but Lockett's first return was called back on borderline holding penalty.
