Tyler Lockett: Outstanding in loss to Packers

Lockett caught nine of 10 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-23 divisional round loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Lockett delivered a tremendous performance in the loss, highlighted by a seven-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The speedy wide receiver delivered his first 1,000-yard regular season in 2019, finishing with career highs in catches (82) and yards (1,057) while adding eight touchdowns. Lockett and standout rookie D.K. Metcalf should return in 2020 to form one of the league's most fearsome wide receiver duos for quarterback Russell Wilson.

Tyler Lockett: Generates 62 yards in win

Lockett caught four of eight targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 17-9 wild-card win over the Eagles.

Analysis: DK Metcalf stole the show with seven receptions for 160 yards and a score, but Lockett produced modest production despite not finding the paydirt. Three of Lockett's four catches went for first downs, and it was his third time in four games where he mustered up 50-plus yards. Lockett and the Seahawks will head to Green Bay for the divisional round. During the regular season, the Packers allowed 232.6 passing yards per game.

Tyler Lockett: Bounces back against 49ers

Lockett caught six of seven targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: The second half of Lockett's season has been bumpy, but this game can be considered a success. Lockett surpassed 50 receiving yards for just the second time since Week 9. The 27-year-old's regular season ends with 82 catches for a career-high 1,057 yards and eight touchdowns. Lockett will look to build on this effort in the wild-card round, as the Seahawks travel to Philadelphia next Sunday.

Tyler Lockett: Shut down by Cardinals

Lockett caught one of eight targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: Lockett looked like he was back on track after putting up eight receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown in Week 15's win over the Panthers, but he produced a bust performance against the league's worst-ranked pass defense Sunday. The fifth-year wideout did admit after last week's strong effort that he was still ailing from the flu bug, but nonetheless it's disappointing that for the fifth time in six games Lockett finished with less than 45 receiving yards. Lockett will look to get back on track with the NFC West crown on the line next Sunday against the 49ers, but it'll be tough since the Niners sport the league's best pass defense (165.6 passing yards allowed per game).

Tyler Lockett: Puts up a boom performance

Lockett caught eight of nine targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Lockett was disappointing over the previous three games, totaling just five receptions for 81 yards. There were whispers that he may not be fully healthy, but Lockett put those notions to rest with his fourth 100-yard performance of the year and finding the end zone for the first time since Week 9. Lockett's boom-or-bust tag will continue to follow him, but fantasy owners should feel confident deploying him again Week 16 against the Cardinals, who have struggled to the tune of 294.2 passing yards allowed per game -- the worst in the league.

Tyler Lockett: Getting back to normal

Coach Pete Carroll called Lockett "really back" in form this week, Adam Jude of The Seattle Times reports. "He was pretty good last week and he's going into this week rarin' to go," Carroll said.

Analysis: Lockett is entering a second straight week without being listed on the Seahawks' injury report, per John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site. The wide receiver's Week 14 performance also backs up Carroll's comments. Lockett put up four catches (on six catches) for 43 yards this past Sunday against the Rams. By putting the shin contusion suffered Week 10 at San Francisco further in the rearview mirror, he's poised to pounce on a Panthers defense that has given up the third-most receiving yards (185.2 per game) to wideouts this season.

Tyler Lockett: Another mediocre outing

Lockett caught four of five targets for 43 yards in Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: After getting blanked by the Vikings last week, Lockett heard his name early by hauling in Russell Wilson's first pass of the game for two yards. However, it was still an unimpressive outing, as Lockett finished below 45 receiving yards for the fourth straight game. Lockett wasn't listed on the team's injury report during the practice week, so this looks like it was simply a valley in the wideout's volatile fantasy numbers. He's bound to break out again at some point, but it'll be tough in Week 15 against Carolina's stout pass defense (229.3 passing yards per game).

Tyler Lockett: Blanked by Vikings

Lockett didn't haul in any of his three targets during Monday's 37-30 win over the Vikings.

Analysis: Lockett was held catchless for the first time since Week 11 of the 2017 season. Instead, DK Metcalf and Jacob Hollister both corralled six passes each for 75 and 44 yards, respectively. This is Lockett's second straight dud following last week's 38-yard effort. It's fair to worry whether Lockett is hampered by the shin injury he sustained Week 10 against the 49ers, as he only practiced once in the week leading up to this contest. However, we can just as easily chalk it up to how Lockett is traditionally a boom-or-bust receiver. The 27-year-old wideout will look to get back on track Week 14 against the Rams.

Tyler Lockett: Does not carry injury status

Lockett (shin/illness) does not have an injury status for Monday's game against the Vikings, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Despite practicing on a limited basis just once Thursday and Friday, Lockett is set to play Monday against the Vikings in what figures to be a solid matchup for fantasy purposes. The 27-year-old saw season-lows in receptions (one) and targets (two) Week 12 against the Eagles despite another favorable matchup, so fantasy owners may want to be a little cautious in relying on the big-play wideout if possible.

November 30, 2019 12:54 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Doesn't practice Friday

Lockett (shin/illness) was listed as a non-participant in Friday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Lockett was a limited participant in the Seahawks' first practice of Week 13 on Thursday, so his downgrade in activity a day later isn't the most reassuring sign. Seattle will see what Lockett is able to do in their final session of the week Saturday before gauging his availability for the Monday night showdown with the Vikings.

November 29, 2019 4:43 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Gets 'limited' tag Thursday

Lockett (shin) was listed as limited on Thursday's injury report, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Seahawks merely released an estimate of player participation, so how Lockett is listed Friday and Saturday will give a better sense of his health. Considering he seemed to come out of the team's Week 12 win at Philadelphia unscathed from the shin injury suffered Week 10, he'll look to ditch his designation prior to Monday's clash with the Vikings.

November 28, 2019 1:08 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Accounts for just one reception

Lockett hauled in a 38-yard pass on two targets in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Lockett received clearance after suffering a shin injury during Week 11's win over the 49ers, and he was unproductive against a normally weak Philly secondary. Despite making just one catch, Lockett led the Seahawks in receiving yards as Russell Wilson spread out his 13 completions to seven different targets. This was just the third time this season Lockett finished with less than 51 receiving yards, and he'll look to get back on track in Week 13's clash against the Vikings.

November 24, 2019 1:50 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Cleared to play

Lockett (shin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Lockett benefitted from a well-timed bye after he picked up a shin injury during a Week 10 win over the 49ers. He should be fine to handle his usual role come Sunday, facing an Eagles defense that's had some issues covering wide receivers but has been much better in recent weeks.

November 22, 2019 1:23 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Still limited Thursday

Lockett (shin) was limited at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Lockett is putting himself into a position to suit up Sunday at Philadelphia with activity in both Week 12 sessions to date. Considering he's only a little more than a week removed from a two-day stay in the hospital to reduce swelling in his left shin, he remains a question mark, but the Seahawks will have an opportunity to clear up his status on Friday's injury report.

November 21, 2019 4:28 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Listed as limited Wednesday

Lockett (shin) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: According to coach Pete Carroll, Lockett wasn't expected to practice until Thursday, according to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle. Instead, Lockett bumped that up by one day, seemingly putting the wide receiver on track to miss no games due to the shin injury that forced him to sit out overtime of the Seahawks' Week 10 win at San Francisco and spend the next two days in the hospital. Clearly, Seattle's bye benefited Lockett, who, like Carroll, expects to suit up Sunday at Philadelphia, per Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio. Ultimately, Lockett has two more chances to elevate to full participation this week, at which point the team will give the wideout a Week 12 designation.

November 20, 2019 4:37 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Sits out practice to start week

Lockett (lower leg) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Lockett spent two nights in the hospital due to swelling from a shin contusion following Week 10's win over the 49ers, and he's benefitted from a bye week to recover. Coach Pete Carroll expressed optimism about the wideout's ability to play Sunday against the Eagles, only for the 27-year-old to start the practice week on the sidelines. The team is optimistic that Lockett will return to the field for Thursday's practice in some capacity, but unless he can work without limitations, Lockett will likely carry an injury tag into Sunday's clash. D.K. Metcalf and Josh Gordon figure to see boosts in usage if Lockett's unable to play.

November 20, 2019 1:12 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Expected to be available Sunday

Coach Pete Carroll said Lockett is "doing better," and he expects the wide receiver to play Sunday at Philadelphia, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Lockett is in recovery mode from the shin contusion that caused him to miss overtime of the Seahawks' Week 10 win at San Francisco. Subsequent swelling in the region forced a stay in the hospital, but he was able to return to Seattle last Wednesday. There's no telling how much, if any, practice time he'll get in this week, but Carroll's comments put a positive spin on Lockett's availability.

November 18, 2019 4:29 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Rejoining team

Lockett (lower leg) is traveling back to Seattle on Wednesday and remains on track to play in the Seahawks' next game Week 12 versus the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Lockett spent the last two days at Stanford Hospital after sustaining a shin contusion during Monday's 27-24 win over the 49ers. The 27-year-old will benefit from extra time to recover due the opportune timing of Seattle's bye, and he appears to have a good chance at returning to the field without missing any action. In his five-year NFL career, the durable wideout has suited up for 73 of a possible 74 regular-season games.

November 13, 2019 10:37 AM EST

Tyler Lockett: Registers 75 yards

Lockett caught all five targets for 75 yards in Sunday's 32-28 win over the Browns.

Analysis: Lockett made three of his catches for 35 yards on the Seahawks' game-winning drive, and the third reception on the drive was ruled a touchdown on the field but was reversed upon video review. Chris Carson scored on a one-yard run on the next play. Russell Wilson spread out his passes to 10 different players, but Lockett still managed to lead the team in targets along with D.K. Metcalf and Jaron Brown. His chances for red-zone targets could increase going forward if Will Dissly's Achilles injury is in fact serious.

October 13, 2019 2:23 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Makes athletic TD catch

Lockett caught all four targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Lockett tied Will Dissly and Jaron Brown for the team high in targets, but he made the most of his looks. Late in the first quarter, Russell Wilson scrambled out of the pocket tossed a pass to the back corner of the end zone where Lockett dragged his feet and leaned out of bounds for the team's first touchdown of the evening. It doesn't look like Lockett will consistently draw targets like he did with 26 between Weeks 2 and 3, but he's making use of the limited action, especially at home where he has a touchdown reception in all three games.
