Lockett caught four of six passes for 120 yards in Saturday's playoff loss to the Cowboys. Lockett flashed his big-play abilities yet again with two catches over 40 yards, including a 53-yard snag that set up a J.D. McKissic touchdown catch with less than two minutes remaining. Unfortunately, it was too late for the Seahawks, who didn't get the ball back after a failed onside kick. The fourth-year pro had a breakout season, setting career highs across all categories with 57 catches for 965 yards and 10 touchdowns. Lockett had just nine total receiving scores entering the season, so this uptick was surprising, especially considering he was targeted in the red zone just six times all year. Another major improvement was recording 17 receptions over 20 yards after never hitting double digits in the stat previously. Lockett signed a three-year, $30.75 million deal before the season began, so he'll be a major bargain if this success is replicated again.
Lockett hauled in both targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Lockett went three straight games without a touchdown, but he finally found paydirt in the regular-season finale with a 29-yard catch in the first quarter to mark 10 scores for the year -- more than his first three campaigns combined. He also set career highs in receptions (57) and receiving yards (965) this season, and he continues to establish himself as a deep threat with 15 catches over 20 yards and six over 40. Lockett won't command major looks in any outing -- he didn't have more than seven targets in any game -- but he warrants fantasy attention as a touchdown-dependent option. He'll have a difficult task for the first round of playoffs, as the Cowboys yielded just 12 touchdowns to wideouts this season.
Lockett caught four of five targets for 99 yards and zero touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. Lockett posted his second-most receiving yards of the season but failed to reach the end zone for the third straight game despite scoring in nine of the first 12 contests. He's clearly playing second fiddle again to Doug Baldwin, who made seven catches on 12 targets for 126 yards and a score in this outing. Nevertheless, Lockett is within reach of his first 1,000-yard season if he can pile up over 101 yards in Week 17 versus the Cardinals.
Lockett hauled in both targets for 45 yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the 49ers. He also rushed once for 11 yards. This is the third straight week Lockett has been kept below 53 yards and the second straight without a touchdown. The fourth-year pro lives off the deep ball as he has 15.4 yards per catch this season, ranking ninth among receivers with more than 40 receptions. That boom-or-bust mentality hinders Lockett's fantasy value if he doesn't find the end zone since he's averaging just 3.5 catches per game. Lockett will look to get back in the saddle in Week 16 versus the Chiefs, who have the league's worst pass defense.
Lockett caught five of his six targets for 42 yards and no touchdowns in Monday's win over the Vikings. He also lost three yards on two carries. The Seahawks were stymied by a tough defense, and Lockett wasn't immune. His longest catch was 14 yards as Russell Wilson couldn't connect with him on deep throws, but Lockett drew an important pass interference in the fourth quarter that brought the Seahawks into the red zone and set up an eventual field goal. It was just the fourth time in 13 games Lockett failed to score a touchdown, but he did provide fantasy owners with some solace by reeling in a two-point conversion. The Seahawks will look for their fifth straight win in San Francisco in Week 15.
