Tyler Lockett: Earns four-year extension

The Seahawks are giving Lockett a four-year, $69.2 million extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Lockett's new deal includes $37 million guaranteed, giving the reliable sixth-year wideout a deserved pay day. With 3,076 receiving yards and 28 receiving touchdowns over the last three seasons, Lockett has clearly established himself as one of the league's premier deep threats. His yards per reception did drop a bit in 2020, down to 10.5 from 12.9 in 2019, but he made up for the slight decline in efficiency with a career-high 100 catches. Even if Lockett ends up taking more of a backseat to rising superstar DK Metcalf in the future, his chemistry with Russell Wilson and position atop Seattle's receiving depth chart will position him well for strong fantasy production.

Tyler Lockett: Catches two passes in loss

Lockett caught two of four targets for 43 yards in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.

Analysis: It was a quiet game overall for Seattle's passing game, as Russell Wilson completed just 41 percent of his passes for 174 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Lockett caught a pair of long passes, with his two receptions going for 24 and 19 yards. The sixth-year wideout nevertheless put together a remarkable 2020 season, posting a 100-1,054-10 line through 16 games. Lockett's efficiency has taken a steep dropoff since his 16.9 yards per reception mark in 2018, but he made up for it with a career-high 132 targets this year. He'll have an opportunity for similar success next year with Russell Wilson and DK Metcalf both returning in 2021.

Tyler Lockett: Goes off for two scores

Lockett hauled in 12 receptions (14 targets) for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Lockett capped off the regular season with a bang, abusing a battered 49ers secondary that focused its remaining resources on containing DK Metcalf (three catches for 21 yards). The 28-year-old had taken a backseat to the budding superstar across from him in formations down the stretch, averaging just 46.9 yards per game with one total touchdown over his previous nine contests. Despite his monster performance in the season finale, we may see more of the second-half version of Lockett as opposed the big production we saw early in the season prior to Metcalf's coming-out party. That being said, the veteran of Seattle's receiving corps will finish with strong numbers, catching a team-record 100 receptions, 1,054 yards and 10 touchdowns over 16 games. Lockett could put up a repeat performance in next week's NFC Wild Card round, as Metcalf is likely to draw the Rams' top defensive back, Jalen Ramsey, in Sunday's playoff matchup between division rivals.

Tyler Lockett: Makes three catches vs. Rams

Lockett caught three of five targets for 44 yards during Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Lockett's long gain of 24 yards matched his best from the last six games, but he struggled to make a notable impact other than that. He has now topped 60 receiving yards just once over his last five games and hasn't reached the end zone during that stretch. Lockett seems to be quite far removed from his monstrous 200-yard performance from Week 7 but will look to finish the regular season on a high note next Sunday against the 49ers.

Tyler Lockett: Struggling to break out

Lockett caught four of seven targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington.

Analysis: The Seahawks' strategy was clear early in the game; they wanted to avoid Washington's pass rush. In turn, Lockett was targeted on short passes six times in the first 20 minutes of the game, and he caught four of those throws for 34 yards. The sixth-year wideout was only targeted one more time all game, failing to haul in that look. Since ringing up seven touchdowns over the first six games, Lockett has produced just one score over eight contests, and he hasn't surpassed the 67-yard threshold in that stretch. He'll look to rediscover the pay dirt in a home matchup against the Rams next week.

Tyler Lockett: Five catches against Jets

Lockett caught all five of his targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Given the final score, Lockett's line was a bit disappointing as he wasn't one of the four different Seahawks that Russell Wilson found for TDs on the afternoon. Lockett has still seen at least five targets and caught at least three passes in nine straight games, and he's closing in on his second straight 1,000-yard campaign heading into Week 15's road clash with a stingy Washington secondary.

Tyler Lockett: Commands nine targets

Lockett recorded six receptions on nine targets for 63 yards in Week 13 against the Giants.

Analysis: Lockett got off a quick start by logging 30 yards on two receptions during the Seahawks' opening drive. He was forced from the game on the following possession and evaluated for a concussion, though he was ultimately cleared to return and missed minimal game action. However, he made minimal impact on the contest until midway through the fourth quarter when he hauled in a 21-yard reception over the middle of the field -- ultimately setting up a touchdown. Lockett and the rest of the Seahawks' offense should be in line for a big Week 14 performance against the Jets.

Tyler Lockett: Returns to Sunday's game

Lockett cleared concussion protocol and returned to Sunday's game against the Giants, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Lockett missed a couple plays on offense after taking a knee to his head in the first quarter. After clearing the league's concussion protocol, he'll return to the field and operate in the 1A-1B tandem with DK Metcalf.

December 6, 2020 1:42 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Being checked for concussion

Lockett is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Giants, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Lockett took a knee to his head as he fought for extra yards on a short catch in the first quarter. If he's unable to return, David Moore and Freddie Swain figure to pick up extra reps behind DK Metcalf.

December 6, 2020 1:31 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Quiet against Eagles

Lockett caught three of four targets for 23 yards in Monday night's 23-17 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Lockett was largely held in check besides an 18-yard reception in the second quarter. In fact, with teammate DK Metcalf going for 10 catches on 13 targets for 177 yards, Lockett was left with a tie for his season low in targets. The speedster's yardage total was indeed his worst thus far, so he'll aim to bounce back in his usual fine fashion in Week 13 versus the Giants.

Tyler Lockett: Thrives despite limitations

Lockett (knee) secured all nine of his targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' 28-21 win over the Cardinals on Thursday night.

Analysis: Lockett toughed out a knee sprain that had reportedly cause him some early-week swelling to pace all pass catchers on either squad in receptions and receiving yardage on the night. The 28-year-old was also the Seahawks' leader in targets and recorded his eighth touchdown reception of the season on a nifty second-quarter grab in the right corner of the end zone . Lockett's trip to the end zone was his first since Week 7, when he's crossed the goal line on three occasions against this same Cardinals squad. He'll now have extra time off his feet before a Week 12 Monday night matchup versus the Eagles on Nov. 30.

Tyler Lockett: Suiting up Thursday

Lockett (knee) is listed as active Thursday against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Lockett managed just one limited practice during a short week of prep, but there wasn't any doubt about his ability to suit up. As a result, he'll look to repeat his performance from Week 7, when he skewered Arizona's defense for 15 catches, 200 yards and three touchdowns on 20 targets.

November 19, 2020 3:54 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: On pace to play Thursday

Coach Pete Carroll said Lockett (knee), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, is expected to play, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Analysis: Lockett was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated report and didn't practice Tuesday, but the sixth-year wide receiver appears to be on pace to suit up Week 11. One way or another, confirmation on his availability will arrive about 90 minutes prior to Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

November 18, 2020 1:26 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Officially questionable for TNF

Lockett (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Lockett is nursing a knee sprain sustained during last weekend's loss to the Rams, the severity of which caused him to sit out Seattle's first two practices of the week. Coach Pete Carroll has already called Lockett a game-time decision for Week 11, so the final word on his status likely won't come until 90 minutes prior to Thursday's 8:20 PM E.T. kickoff, at which point the Seahawks' inactives will be made official. If Lockett can't go Thursday, David Moore and Freddie Swain will be candidates to draw increased targets behind top receiver DK Metcalf. When last Lockett faced Arizona in Week 7, he enjoyed a career day with 15 catches for 200 yards and three touchdowns.

November 18, 2020 1:00 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Misses another practice

Lockett (knee) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll declared Monday that Lockett picked up "a bit of a knee sprain" during Sunday's loss to the Rams, adding that there is swelling as well. Carroll predicted that Lockett would be a game-time decision for Thursday's clash against the Cardinals, but there's a growing concern about the receiver's status following a consecutive DNP. Getting on the field in some capacity Wednesday will be vital for his chances to play this week. David Moore and Freddie Swain are expected to be the main beneficiaries if Lockett sits out.

Tyler Lockett: Dealing with knee sprain

Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Lockett has a "bit of a knee sprain" and is considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game versus the Cardinals, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Carroll added that there was discomfort and swelling in Lockett's knee, too. While the coach relayed that it's not a serious injury, the Seahawks are on a short week and may decide that it's best to rest Lockett to avoid further aggravation. We'll have a better idea of his status when the team releases practice reports Tuesday and Wednesday. If Lockett ends up sitting out, David Moore and Freddie Swain both figure to see more reps against the Cardinals.

November 16, 2020 2:59 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Managing knee injury

Lockett (knee) is listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Lockett appears to have picked up a knee injury during Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams, in which he caught five of nine targets for 66 yards. It's possible that the Seahawks are simply allowing Lockett rest on a short week, but until he resumes practicing in full the 28-year-old's status for Thursday night will remain murky. The last time Lockett faced off against Arizona's secondary, a Week 7 primetime matchup, he posted 15 catches, 200 yards and three scores.

November 16, 2020 2:06 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Targeted nine times Sunday

Lockett caught five of nine targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: The Rams' secondary locked down the middle of the field, taking away the real estate where Lockett does his best work. Still, the sixth-year wideout was the only pass catcher to be targeted more than four times by Russell Wilson on Sunday, and he ended up with a modest output as a result. Lockett's touchdowns continue to come in bunches, as he has gone scoreless in five of the last six games, squeezing a three-touchdown performance in Week 7 against the Cardinals into that stretch. A rematch against the Cardinals is up next Thursday night, and he'll look to recreate the magic in a critical NFC West showdown.

November 15, 2020 5:01 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Another underwhelming effort

Lockett caught four of seven targets for 40 yards in the 44-34 loss to the Bills on Sunday.

Analysis: Lockett typically flourishes when Russell Wilson is under heavy pressure, finding holes in the defense that Wilson can pick apart. Wilson was under siege Sunday, but instead, Lockett watched DK Metcalf secure seven receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown. Lockett now has produced fewer than 45 yards and no touchdowns in four of the last five games, although he snuck in a 15-200-3 effort in Week 7 against the Cardinals. He's starting to become a boom-or-bust player, and next week's matchup will be tough to get back on track, as the Rams have allowed 197.1 passing yards per game (second in the league).

November 8, 2020 2:26 PM EST

Tyler Lockett: Held quiet in Week 8

Lockett recorded four receptions on five targets for 33 yards in Week 8 against the 49ers.

Analysis: Coming off a massive Week 7 performance, Lockett was held in check by San Francisco's defense. Instead, D.K. Metcalf was peppered with 15 targets and posted 161 receiving yards with two scores. Though Lockett has seven touchdowns, he's accumulated six of them in two games. Similarly, he has accounted for 300 of his 575 receiving yards in two games this season. That leaves him with huge upside in every game, but also with a limited floor. Lockett will try to get back on track in Week 9 against Buffalo.
