Tyler Lockett scores kick return touchdown

Tyler Lockett caught three passes on four targets for 25 yards, returned four kicks for 156 yards and a touchdown, and returned four punts for 39 yards in Seattle's 26-24 loss to Arizona.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett's 99-yard return touchdown came in the first quarter after the Cardinals scored on their opening drive. Arizona mostly avoided him after that, opting to aim pooch kicks at Luke Willson instead. It was Lockett's second career kick return touchdown and first since Week 3 of 2015. Lockett should be Seattle's primary return man once again in 2018, and he may see some increased usage in the passing game with Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham set to be unrestricted free agents.

Tyler Lockett rarely seen in win over Dallas

Tyler Lockett caught one pass on two targets for seven yards and returned a punt for nine yards in Seattle's 21-12 win over Dallas.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett's biggest "contribution" came when he absorbed two facemask penalties on the same play. The infraction led to Doug Baldwin scoring a few plays later. Lockett scored a touchdown in each of his first two games in December, but since then has three receptions for 15 yards. Lockett should probably be avoided in Week 17 against the Cardinals. He caught one pass for 16 yards against them in Week 10 in Arizona.

Tyler Lockett fails to make impact

Tyler Lockett caught two passes on three targets for eight yards, returned six kicks for 118 yards, and returned two punts for 18 yards in Seattle's 42-7 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Those using Lockett in leagues that count kick return yardage had to have been happy considering how many times the Rams kicked off. Otherwise, Lockett was about as effective as the rest of Seattle's offense. Russell Wilson did not look Lockett's way except for a few short passes. Lockett will once again be a boom-bust desperation option in a road matchup with the Cowboys in Week 16.

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.
