Lockett had his best season as a pro, leading the Seahawks at receiver many weeks. He was just 35 yards shy of a 1,000-yard season and scored a career-high 10 touchdowns. He also had a career-high 57 receptions. He ran for 69 yards, giving him 1,034 total yards on the season. Lockett was 16th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. He had just one 100-yard game but at least three receptions all but four games. Lockett will continue to start and play a big role in the Sea-hawks passing game. Lockett isn't the biggest receiver but runs great routes and makes plays with the ball in his hands. He can turn a short pass into a big play. He also is a great return man and can do well rushing the ball. Fantasy Outlook: Lockett might have reached his ceiling last year. He could have a hard time besting that, especially since his reception totals aren't off the charts. But even with that said, he should be considered a top No. 3 fantasy receiver. He has big-game potential. Look for around 60 receptions for 900 yards and seven touchdowns.
Coming off a career season in 2018, Seattle Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett is poised to make even more noise in 2019 following the sudden retirement of slot receiver Doug Baldwin. Lockett had taken over as Seattle's No. 1 receiver last year, when he hauled in 57 receptions for 965 yards and 10 touchdowns, all career highs. Now, with Baldwin out of the picture, Lockett should continue to see the majority of targets from Russell Wilson. The big question is whether Lockett will line up in the slot to replace Baldwin, or if he will stay on the outside. If hes in the slot, hell get a boost in PPR formats thanks to more targets, but his overall yards per catch will go down, and it could have a negative impact on his touchdown totals as well. Reports have indicated he will be in the slot, but that depends on how rookie Gary Jennings looks for Seattle in training camp. If he stays outside, he will be competing for touches with hulking rookie DK Metcalf. Either way, Lockett possesses the speed and reliable hands to make him a receiver target in the late fifth or early sixth round of standard 10-team leagues. If he ends up in the slot, he gets a boost in PPR formats as well.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Fantasy Spin: Lockett has caught each of his last 11 targets over the last three games and is the main option in the passing game. He is a must-start option in all leagues despite the matchup.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (non-injury) got in a full practice session Thursday, Oct. 17.
Fantasy Spin: All clear for the Seahawks' No. 1 receiver. Lockett has scored a touchdown every-other week through his team's first six games of 2019, and he didn't find the end zone in Week 6. Coincidence aside, he remains a steady WR2 as QB Russell Wilson's top option.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Fantasy Spin: Lockett has been a solid fantasy option this season with at least 50 yards in each of the last five games. He will be facing a solid Baltimore Ravens defense but should still be a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett continues to be the pride of possession receivers. Lockett brought in all five passes sent his way in Week 6, tallying 75 yards. Lockett has now caught 24 of 27 passes thrown to him this year, and he deserves quite a bit of credit for Russell Wilson's ridiculous efficiency numbers. Lockett still struggles to find the end zone on a regular basis because Wilson excels at spreading the ball all around, but he's as dependable a receiver as exists in the league. Expect Lockett to continue to put up rock solid performances from here on out, and he'll get some scores eventually.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett posted five receptions for a team-high 75 yards on his five targets in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: Lockett had his most yards since Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, but he failed to get into the end zone for the second time in the past three outings. Treat him more as a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against Baltimore.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett made his owners proud against the Rams when he made a phenomenal toe-tapping catch in the back corner of the end zone last week, but otherwise, he was pretty quiet once again. Lockett was only targeted four times against the Rams, but the TD gave him plenty of points in the fantasy world. The good news is that he can turn those targets into catches, snagging 83% of passes thrown his way, best in the league. The bad news is limited targets is limited points. This week though, he'll be facing a Browns Defense that has struggled against slot receivers, and Lockett does most of his damage in the middle of the field while working from the slot. It wouldn't be surprising for Lockett to see a spike in opportunities this week and get back on that 100-yard gravy train.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett made an otherworldly touchdown catch at the end of the first quarter of Thursday's game. Lockett's 13-yard grab was actually more like a 30-yard heave into the very back corner of the end zone. What looked like a ball that was being thrown away due to pressure in the pocket ended up being snagged by Lockett in full extension, and tapped both toes down instantly after the catch. It was likely the greatest catch of Lockett's career, and it's probably the leader in the clubhouse for catch-of-the-year at the moment. Lockett would go on to catch three more balls during the game, but none would stack up to that score.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught four passes for 51 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, Oct. 3.
Fantasy Spin: Technically, Lockett finished with 43 total yards after he was hit with an eight-yard loss when Wilson optioned him the ball late in the fourth quarter, which makes this his low-water mark for the season. He did tally his third touchdown of the year on a spectacular grab in the corner of the end zone and is doing just enough to remain a decent WR2.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is facing a mixed bag this week in Seattle. LA just got shellacked at home by a worse QB than Seattle's, and they gave up four receiving touchdowns in the process. However, even with that loss, the Rams are still considered an above average defense against the pass. Even with that mixed message though, Lockett has more positives than negatives this week. Seattle has been amazing in primetime at home since head coach Pete Carroll arrived, and both games with the Rams last year were shootouts where Lockett hauled in TDs. Expect Russell Wilson to pepper Lockett with opportunities throughout the game, and fantasy owners should cross their fingers that the same defense LA brought on Sunday shows up on Thursday.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett was once again kept under control by an Arizona secondary that seems to have a real talent for scheming against him. Lockett did bust free for a 28-yard strike in the second quarter, but he only finished with 51 yards on four catches. Lockett's targets were doubled up by tight end Will Dissly instead. Lockett is still clearly one of Wilson's favorite targets and will likely see another spike in production soon, but owners always have to be aware of the fact that Wilson and Seattle's offense specialize in spreading the ball around. That means weeks like this are bound to happen.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught all four of his targets for 51 yards in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Fantasy Spin: The Seahawks jumped out to a 20-3 before halftime and essentially sat on the ball from that point on, making Lockett a bit of an afterthought. Like Russell Wilson, Lockett is going to be at his best for fantasy owners when Seattle is forced to break out of its run-heavy shell. Today was obviously not one of those days. Better days are ahead, and one should come Thursday night the Seahawks host the Los Angeles Rams to begin Week 5.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught all four of his targets for 51 yards in a 27-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: The Seahawks jumped out to an early lead and leaned on the ground game, limiting Lockett's usage a bit. He has still managed 26 catches through four games, putting him in the WR2 conversation.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is in a nice situation for Week 4 against an Arizona Cardinals team that is still missing cornerbacks Patrick Peterson (suspension) and Robert Alford (leg). Arizona is ranked 17th in fantasy points allowed per game (23.6) to the position and they did a decent job limiting Lockett in two games last year, but there's no denying that the Cardinals secondary is vulnerable. Another positive for Lockett: He saw only two targets in the season opener but has since been targeted 26 times by Russell Wilson the last two weeks. Double-digit targets would be nice again, but either way Lockett has top-10 upside at the position.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett will have his hands full on Sunday against the Cardinals as he'll be squaring off against a secondary that has done a pretty good job of managing him in the past. In two games last season, Lockett was able to snag six of seven passes sent his way, but Arizona's done a surprisingly good job of limiting the production of wideouts so far this year, even without Patrick Peterson. Lockett fits a bit of a different mold than most top receivers since he's willing to work in the slot far more often, but it'll still be a tough fight for him. He'll likely get quite a few chances, but it would be surprising if Lockett's able to put up another big performance like his last two weeks.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (not injury related) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 26.
Fantasy Spin: Lockett's in line for a big week as the Seahawks' No. 1 option in a soft matchup against the Arizona Cardinals' secondary. Make sure he's in your Week 4 lineup.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Fantasy Spin: Lockett has been outstanding over the last two weeks with 21 catches and 233 yards during that span. He should be considered at least a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues this week.
Seahawks' WR Tyler Lockett scored an astounding 32.40 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 3 loss against the Saints. Lockett caught 11 passes for 154 yards with one touchdown. It's the 1st time this season Lockett scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett had the biggest receiving day of his NFL career on Sunday as he caught 11 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown in the team's loss to New Orleans. He also just missed a second touchdown pass on an errant throw that was a little out of his reach. Lockett came up huge for quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks throughout the game, snagging balls left and right to keep the team in it when they were down big. The game doubled up Lockett's catches and targets on the season, and he's now averaging more than 90 yards receiving per game. Lockett looks like he's well on his way to topping 1,000 yards this season, and he should have a handful of touchdowns in the bank as well.
Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett hauled in 11 of his 14 targets for 154 yards - all career highs - and a touchdown in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Spin: He nearly added a second touchdown from 13 yards out, but Russell Wilson just missed him by a few inches on a corner route on a fourth-down play. Since seeing only two targets (and scoring on his only catch) in Week 1, Lockett has set personal bests in targets and receptions in two straight weeks. He's a solid bet to enjoy another fine day in Week 4 against an Arizona Cardinals secondary that just gave up four touchdown passes in Week 3 to career backup Kyle Allen.
