Tyler Lockett held in check

Tyler Lockett caught three passes on four targets for 26 yards, rushed once for seven yards and returned a punt for 10 yards in Seattle's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett drew the shortest straw in Seattle's receiving quartet, finishing behind Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham in receptions, yards and targets. He was efficient, though, in that he picked up four first downs. His lone rushing attempt came from the Rams' 11-yard line. Lockett had torched the Rams in 2016, catching 11 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown in two meetings, but Seattle's offense struggled as a whole in this one. Lockett remains involved in the offense, but he has not scored a touchdown this season and has only one since Week 16 of 2015. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 6, then face the Giants on the road in Week 7.

Tyler Lockett leads Seahawks receivers for second time

Tyler Lockett caught four passes on five targets for 67 yards in Seattle's 46-18 win over the Colts. He added 24 rushing yards on two carries and 16 kick return yards.

Fantasy Impact

That's now half of Seattle's games in which Lockett has led all receivers. The other came in his 64-yard performance in Seattle's home win over the 49ers. However, most of Lockett's yards against the Colts came on a 41-yard reception on the first play of the fourth quarter. He's also fourth on the team in targets and has not yet scored a touchdown. Still, his big-play abilities make him a weekly flex consideration. It may be best to avoid Lockett when the Seahawks travel to face the Rams in Week 5.

Tyler Lockett not a factor in loss

Tyler Lockett caught two passes on three targets for 30 yards in Seattle's 33-27 loss to the Titans. He also returned three punts for 32 yards.

Fantasy Impact

It's slightly alarming that Lockett barely made it on the stat sheet despite Russell Wilson throwing for a career-high 373 yards and four touchdowns. He'll always have upside due to his big-play ability and returning skills, but those big days are becoming few and far between. Treat Lockett as nothing more than a home run play when the Seahawks host the Colts on Sunday night.

Tyler Lockett leads Seattle receivers

Tyler Lockett caught six passes on nine targets for 64 yards in Seattle's 12-9 win over San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact

Lockett was much more involved than he was in Week 1. He led the team in receiving yards and tied with Doug Baldwin for the lead in targets and receptions. He also added 46 kick return yards. Lockett's leg injury appears to be behind him, meaning he could be a smart bench stash should Seattle's offense manage to hit its stride. The Seahawks will look to put up more points when they travel to Tennessee on Sunday.

Tyler Lockett almost an afterthought in loss

Tyler Lockett caught one pass on three targets for eight yards in Seattle's 17-9 loss to Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact

He was "almost" an afterthought because he would have had a decent fantasy day had one play gone differently. Lockett beat his man and got free for what could have been a 57-yard touchdown in the second quarter. But Russell Wilson, who was under siege all day, barely overthrew him. Lockett also returned three kicks for 91 yards and a punt for seven yards, so he's a viable option in leagues that count return yardage. The Seahawks will try to bounce back when they host the 49ers on Sunday.
