Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett led the league with a perfect 158.3 passer rating when targeted 20 or more yards downfield (minimum 15 targets) in 2018.
Huddle Up: Lockett will be counted on to be much more than just a deep threat this season with Doug Baldwin now out of the picture and should be valued as a low-end WR2.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has been working out of the slot in three-receiver sets during spring practices.
Huddle Up: Lockett was a dangerous weapon down the field last year, and working out of the slot could put the ball in his hands more often and create even more big-play opportunities. For now, consider him a high-risk, high-reward WR3.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught four of six targets for 120 yards in a 24-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: As has been the case all year, Lockett did his damage on big plays. He was one of the more dangerous deep threats this season, and he should be a high-risk, high-reward WR3 in 2019.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught 57 of his 70 targets from Russell Wilson in 2018. Lockett was not charged with a single drop pass and his average reception was caught 13 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. The Wilson-to-Lockett duo was also 14-of-17 on passes thrown at least 20 yards downfield, according to Sports Info Solutions.
Huddle Up: As it relates to this weekend's playoff game against the Chicago Bears, Lockett runs into the defense that allowed 23 percent of downfield passes (at least 20 yards) to be completed - lowest in the league. As it relates to his fantasy prospects for 2019, Lockett is a prime candidate for touchdown and efficiency regression. Owners should view this season as his ceiling and what can happen when everything falls into place for him, but chances are Lockett will be no better than a WR3 next season.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett hauled in both of his targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Lockett finishes the regular season with 57 catches for 965 yards and 10 touchdowns - all career highs. While some of his production was the result of Doug Baldwin being less than 100 percent for much of the season, Russell Wilson clearly trusts him to make plays. Lockett will be a bit of a risky option in playoff leagues and is bound to see some touchdown regression in 2019, but he'll be worth a look as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 in drafts next summer.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett turned five targets into four catches for 99 yards in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added 32 yards on a kick return and 13 yards on two punt returns.
Huddle Up: Lockett was held out of the end zone for a third straight week and didn't log a rush attempt for the first time in seven games, but he was productive nonetheless. Touchdown regression was always likely to find him at some point after scoring nine times on his first 44 receptions, but he is still in the midst of a career season anyway, as his 55 catches, 899 yards and nine receiving scores are all personal best. He'll be on the WR3 yet again in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught both of his targets for 45 yards in a 26-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15
Huddle Up: Lockett has been a touchdown-dependent option this year, and he wasn't able to find the end zone in this one despite a favorable matchup.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett faces the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15, and the 49ers have allowed the third-most receiving touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: Lockett scored the first time these teams met, and his nine receiving touchdowns are tied for sixth in the NFL. The matchup with the 49ers should favor his big-play ability, making Lockett a WR3 with upside.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett registered five receptions for a team-high 42 yards on six targets in the Week 14 game against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: The entire pass game had very, very limited production in a game which was dominated by defense. He will look to bounce back in Week 15 in a rematch with the San Francisco 49ers. He posted two grabs for 52 yards and a score last week against the Niners.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught one of his two targets for a 52-yard touchdown in Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Lockett is testing the well-known fantasy idiom that targets are critical for consistent fantasy success and touchdowns are not bankable. The 26-year-old receiver has yet to see more than five targets only four times this season and 55 total for the season, yet he is the overall WR17 in PPR leagues entering Monday Night Football because he has scored nine touchdowns. Lockett could be a strong WR3 play again in Week 14 against a banged-up Minnesota Vikings secondary.
