Busts out for 178 yards, one TD

Lockett reeled in eight of 11 targets for 178 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 33-30 overtime defeat to the Titans.

Analysis: Lockett's connection with Russell Wilson has been on point through the first two games of the season, with the wide receiver posting back-to-back 100-yard efforts for the second time in his seven-year career. So far, Lockett and DK Metcalf are tied for the team lead with 16 targets on the campaign. But Lockett has been far more efficient, averaging a ridiculous 23.2 YPC and 17.4 YPT (versus 11.3 and 7.1, respectively, for Metcalf), while getting in the end zone in both contests. Lockett will seek another productive outing Week 3 in a road jaunt to Minnesota.

Huge fantasy day to begin 2020

Lockett caught four of five targets for 100 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Lockett immediately began paying dividends on the four-year, $69.2 million contract he signed with the Seahawks this past offseason. The speedy wideout burned the opposing secondary on two separate occasions and Russell Wilson -- as he is known to do -- floated perfect passes right into his bread basket. The air attacking trio of Wilson (four TDs), Lockett and DK Metcalf (60 yards and a TD) looks to be a potent one heading into a Week 2 matchup against the Titans.

Avoids injury report

Lockett (groin) isn't listed on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll kept the key pieces of his offensive arsenal -- Russell Wilson, Chris Carson, DK Metcalf and Lockett -- on the sideline this preseason -- but only Lockett was dealing with an injury. Now that the regular season officially is in session, however, Lockett is unhindered on the practice field. He'll look to put a third consecutive 1,000-yard season and fifth straight year playing an entire regular-season slate.

Sits out Saturday

Lockett (groin) didn't play in Saturday's final preseason game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Lockett likely wouldn't have played even if he was 100 percent, as Russell Wilson, DK Metcalf and Chris Carson all watched the entire preseason from the sidelines. There's no indication that Lockett is in danger of missing the season opener against the Colts on Sept. 12, as he's been participating in team drills for over a week now. With back-to-back, 1,000-yard campaigns under his belt, Lockett is set up well for another big campaign along with Metcalf. The duo is one of the most lethal receiving tandems in the league.

Could play next week

Head coach Pete Carroll said Lockett (groin) could play in the final preseason game Saturday versus the Chargers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Lockett has been tending to a groin injury for nearly a week now, and he was able to go through warmups ahead of this past Saturday's preseason loss to the Raiders before ultimately watching from the sidelines. The 28-year-old wideout is making steady progress in his return to action. The Seahawks will nonetheless take a cautious approach in the final preseason game if Lockett's feeling any ill effects. The Kansas State product has missed just one game over his six-year career.

Back in team drills

Lockett (groin) mixed into team drills during Thursday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: The development doesn't mean Lockett is entirely past the groin injury that forced him out of recent on-field work, but he could be setting himself up to make an appearance in the preseason, perhaps as early as Saturday versus the Broncos. None the Seahawks' first-team skill-position players got on the field in their first exhibition, making this weekend the best shot for Lockett and company to suit up.

Tending to groin issue

Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Lockett has missed recent practices due to a groin injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Any minor health concern to a player of Lockett's stature oftentimes results in teams taking a cautious approach, and the Seahawks are doing exactly that with the seventh-year pro. Due to the investment Seattle made in him this offseason -- he inked a four-year, $69.2 million extension with the team back in March -- he'll likely remain on the sideline until the issue is a thing of the past. As such, Lockett may be in danger of sitting out Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

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.

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.

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.

Jan 3, 2021 6:48 PM EST

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.

Dec 27, 2020 5:37 PM EST

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.

Dec 20, 2020 2:18 PM EST

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.

Dec 13, 2020 7:11 PM EST

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.

Dec 6, 2020 5:42 PM EST

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.

Dec 6, 2020 1:42 PM EST

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.

Dec 6, 2020 1:31 PM EST

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.

Nov 30, 2020 9:20 PM EST

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.

Nov 19, 2020 9:00 PM EST

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.

Nov 19, 2020 3:54 PM EST

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.
