After bringing in eight catches and finding the end zone twice in Week 2, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett had a dud of a game in Week 3. The 31-year-old caught just three of his seven targets for 34 yards in Seattle's win over the Carolina Panthers. Perhaps the final line was the result of adjustments made to the game plan at halftime, as all but three of Geno Smith's pass attempts in the second half went to tight ends or running backs. While it didn't count as an official reception, Lockett fought off safety Jeremy Chinn to catch the pass that sealed Seattle's two-point conversion in the fourth quarter. Even after a down week, Lockett is worthy of WR3/FLEX consideration for Seattle's Week 4 game against the New York Giants.

In the first two weeks of the new NFL season, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has had two wildly different games. In the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams, he was held to 10 receiving yards on two catches. Last week against the Lions, Lockett came back to life and caught eight balls for 59 yards and two touchdowns. In Week 3, the Seahawks host the Carolina Panthers, their opponent from Week 14 last season. In that matchup, Lockett caught five passes for 60 yards and a score. So far this season, the ninth-year veteran is on the field for 87% of snaps and is leading the team in targets per game. Even with Jaxon Smith-Njigba nipping at his heels, Lockett's usage dictates that he be started in Week 3.

Wide receiver Tyler Lockett caught two touchdown passes in the Seattle Seahawks' 37-31 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The first score came in the fourth quarter and gave Seattle a 24-21 lead. After Detroit forced overtime, Lockett walked the Lions off their home field, catching a six-yard pass from Geno Smith and then lunging for the pylon. In Week 2, Lockett finished with 59 receiving yards and led the team in receptions (eight) and targets (10). Seattle hosts the Carolina Panthers in Week 3, and while it is unlikely he will log another multi-touchdown game, the ninth-year veteran will still belong in starting lineups.

Tyler Lockett missed a portion of the Seattle Seahawks' 30-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams to be checked for a concussion. Lockett was eventually cleared and has not shown up on the team injury reports this week. The ninth-year veteran saw five targets in Week 1 but made just two catches for ten yards. The Seahawks are on the road in Week 2, facing a Lions defense that held the Kansas City Chiefs to 226 passing yards. Patrick Mahomes was without Travis Kelce in that game, though, and Seattle's wide receiver corps is a more formidable threat than Kansas City's. Lockett is due for positive regression and will carry WR3 value in Week 2.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett had to be removed from their Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Rams after a hard hit in the third quarter. Lockett was examined for a concussion and eventually cleared, but was not involved in any plays thereafter. Lockett finished the game with two catches and 10 receiving yards on four targets in the Seahawks loss. As long as he stays healthy he will remain a flex play option in Week 2 when the Seahawks hit the road to face the Detroit Lions.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is seeking his fifth consecutive season with over 1,000 receiving yards. The streak has coincided with the emergence of DK Metcalf, but it may be hard to maintain with rookie wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba now in the mix. In Week 1, Lockett hopes to pick up where he left off last season against the Los Angeles Rams. In 2022, he found the end zone twice against them, and in their Week 12 matchup Lockett caught nine of his 12 targets for a season-high 128 yards. Expect WR3 production from Lockett against a Rams secondary that lost former All-Pro defensive back Jalen Ramsey in the offseason.
