Tyler Lockett benefits from blown coverage

Tyler Lockett caught four passes on five targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's 30-24 loss to Jacksonville.

Fantasy Impact

With just under four minutes to go in the game, Lockett had three receptions for 16 yards. Then he managed to streak through Jacksonville's defense uncovered and score a 74-yard touchdown. After not scoring for 12 straight games, Lockett has now scored in consecutive weeks. Lockett and the Seahawks will host the Rams next week in what is likely for the NFC West title. He managed 33 yards from scrimmage against them in their first meeting but averaged 114.5 yards per game in two Rams matchups in 2016.

Tyler Lockett ends 12-game scoreless streak

Tyler Lockett caught both of his targets for 17 yards and a touchdown, returned two kicks for 47 yards and returned a punt for two yards in Seattle's 24-10 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett's last touchdown of any kind came in Week 15 of last season when he put up a career-high 130 yards in a Thursday game against the Rams. He would break his leg the following week. Lockett's score came in the third quarter from inside the 1-yard line after the officials ruled Doug Baldwin's 48-yard touchdown to be just short. Otherwise, Lockett didn't get many looks on a day in which running backs and tight ends got more than half of Russell Wilson's targets. Lockett will be the riskiest of desperation plays against Jacksonville's excellent pass defense in Week 14.

Tyler Lockett fails to reel in lone target

Tyler Lockett caught no passes on one target, rushed once for two yards, returned a kick for 26 yards and returned two punts for seven yards in Seattle's 24-13 win over the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett's target came in the end zone from 36 yards out, but the pass was defended by rookie Ahkello Witherspoon. Lockett was basically invisible other than an end-around in the second quarter. He has now failed to score in the last 12 games in which he was active and averaged 15.75 receiving yards per game in November. He's little more than a desperation play outside of leagues that count return yardage when the Seahawks host the Eagles on Sunday night.

Tyler Lockett dominant on kick returns

Tyler Lockett caught four passes on five targets for 37 yards, returned five kicks for 197 yards and returned one punt for no yards in Seattle's 34-31 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

The former Pro Bowler had four kick returns of at least 37 yards. He didn't contribute much as a receiver, but Russell Wilson and the rest of Seattle's offense benefited from the excellent field position he provided. Lockett has failed to surpass 40 receiving yards in five of his last six games and hasn't scored a touchdown of any kind since Week 16 of last year. He'll be tough to trust when the Seahawks travel to face the 49ers on Sunday.

Tyler Lockett shut down again

Tyler Lockett caught one pass on two targets for 16 yards in Seattle's 22-16 win over Arizona. He added three kick returns for 57 yards and two punt returns for 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact

It was the fourth time this season Lockett got two catches or fewer. He now has a total of three catches for 26 yards after his 121-yard performance against the Texans. As is often the case, he nearly had a much better day. Early in the first quarter, Lockett got open on a double move and was targeted in the end zone for what would have been a 46-yard touchdown. However, safety Tyvon Branch was able to catch up with Lockett and break up the pass. Lockett will try to get back on track when the Seahawks host the Falcons on Monday night in Week 11.
