Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett was the only player in the league with at least 100 targets that was not charged with a drop in 2021, according to Sports Info Solutions.
Huddle Up: Per SIS, the 2021 season was the second time in four years he did not drop a pass. It was also a bit of a rebound after he was charged with a career-high seven in 2020. Lockett will have his work cut out for him this season, however, as he will almost certainly be catching passes from either Geno Smith or Drew Lock after having Russell Wilson looking his way for all but a few snaps of his career. Fantasy managers should consider Lockett a bit of a risky WR3 or decent WR4 option this season.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett recently opened up about his mental health issues and says he considered retiring on multiple occasions. "Two years out of my seven years in the NFL thus far I played through depression and anxiety and almost quit and had my best year," Lockett tweeted. "I played through trauma another year and had my best year. Moral of the story: just keep going. You never know what's waiting on the other side!"

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is reportedly available via trade following the team's reported trade of Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos on Tuesday, March 8, according to NFLAnalysisNet's Evan Massey.
Huddle Up: The Wilson trade is a clear indication Seattle is hitting the reset button, so it only makes sense the Seahawks would want to add more draft picks for a receiver set to turn 30 in September. A proven producer like Lockett would easily fetch an early Day 2 pick, but the bigger consideration might be the $28 million dead cap hit the Seahawks would take if they traded him before June 1. At this point, it seems unlikely Seattle will move him this offseason.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught all three of his targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 versus the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Lockett is going to be hit-or-miss in part because he is on the same team as DK Metcalf. Week 17 was a Metcalf day (three TDs). The crafty veteran got his score late in the first half when he caught a push pass right at the goal line from Russell Wilson and beat Detroit's defense to the edge. In a bit of a reversal from last year, Lockett has been the more consistent of the two Seattle receivers, although Metcalf is coming on of late. Lockett should be considered a worthy WR3 option in Week 18 versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett managed three receptions for 30 yards on six targets in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Lockett was quiet and DK Metcalf scored in this one for a change, much to the dismay of Lockett's fantasy managers. He still has three or more receptions for the fifth consecutive game, as he remains a solid PPR fantasy option in all leagues. Lockett and the Seattle pass offense face a favorable matchup in Week 17 against the visiting Detroit Lions.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Lockett missed Tuesday's Week 15 tilt against the Los Angeles Rams but should be good to go for Week 16 versus the Chicago Bears. Throughout the bulk of Seattle's offensive slump over the second half of the season, Lockett has been the one Seahawk that has been mostly immune to it. Consider him a WR3 with WR2 upside this weekend.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (illness) could not clear the NFL's COVID-19 protocols by the deadline and will not play in Week 15 vs. the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: No surprise here as this was reported to be expected earlier in the day. Barring a setback, he is likely to get activated prior to Week 16. WR Freddie Swain and rookie WR Dee Eskridge have a little more value this week, though they're aren't advised plays with a brutal matchup.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is not expected to be activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list in time to play in Week 15 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Against most opponents, Lockett's absence would set up for a huge DK Metcalf game. However, it might be a different story against the Rams. Although Jalen Ramsey is not a true shadow, he should see plenty of Metcalf and keep him somewhat in check. As such, the Seahawks may have no choice but to lean more heavily on Freddie Swain, Dee Eskridge and Gerald Everett.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett on Thursday, Dec. 16, was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Huddle Up: A brutal development as this locked-in WR2 is now in real danger of missing Sunday's Week 15 game against the Rams. Stay tuned over the next few days to see if there's any reversal of fortune, but for now count on making other starting WR plans.

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett caught five of his nine targets for 142 yards and a touchdown in a 33-13 win over the Houston Texans in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Lockett went over 1,000 yards for the third year in a row, and he is finding his stride now that Russell Wilson is back under center. Lockett has scored in back-to-back games and has at least 96 receiving yards in three of his last four. He is back to being an every-week fantasy starter.
