2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lockett quietly had a season for the ages. Lest you think we're exaggerating, consider he averaged 13.8 YPT, more than half a yard better than the next highest single-season, per-target output (Jordy Nelson, 2011) since 1992 when they started keeping track. Only six 70-target receivers have even cracked 12.0 YPT over that span, and Lockett was approaching 14. It helps when of the 70 targets directed your way, you drop none, catch 57 (81.4%) and average 16.9 YPC. Lockett had six plays of 40-plus yards (T-4th) and 10 TDs (T-6th) on the 56th-most targets. Moreover, Russell Wilson had a perfect passer rating (158.3) when targeting Lockett. A season does not get more efficient. At 5-10, 182, Lockett is small, fast (4.40 40) and incredibly dangerous in open space - he made the Pro Bowl as a kick returner his rookie season. Lockett has made big plays throughout his career despite modest opportunities, and Wilson's ability to scramble and buy time is a big part of that. Lockett rarely sees red-zone work - he's too small, and the Seahawks prefer to run from in close in any event (Wilson was 18th in red-zone attempts despite playing all 16 games). Lockett's amazing efficiency is not sustainable by Randy Moss, Jerry Rice or anyone else, so a drop back to his usual 9-10 YPT and modest TD numbers is a reasonable expectation. The question is whether the team, seeing his incredible success, will give him more targets. The Seahawks' other top option, Doug Baldwin, retired, freeing up more looks, but the team drafted two athletic rookies, DK Metcalf (62nd overall) and Gary Jennings (120th), and either or both could contribute right away. Bottom line, even without Baldwin and as great as Lockett was last year, we can't project heavy volume for him in Brian Schottenheimer's run-first offense. Read Past Outlooks

Snags 10 passes Sunday
WRSeattle Seahawks
September 15, 2019
Lockett recorded 10 receptions for 79 yards on 12 targets in Sunday's 28-26 win over the Steelers.
ANALYSIS
After being targeted just twice in Week 1, Lockett's doubters were plentiful. However, the Seahawks opened up their playbook in this contest and allowed QB Russell Wilson to toss the ball 35 times, and Lockett had 34.2 percent target share. His high target share explains his uncharacteristic 7.9 YPC -- he had 16.9 last year -- and may signal more of a slot role for Lockett going forward, especially when David Moore (shoulder) returns.

2015
Lockett had a pedestrian season as the team's No. 3 receiver last year - only 12.3 YPC and 7.8 YPT, both marks down from his career norms. At 5-10, 182, and with 4.40 speed, Lockett is fast, quick and dangerous in open space, so much so he's made the Pro Bowl twice as a kick returner. Despite seeing only 71 targets, Lockett had three catches of 40-plus yards last season, but also disappeared for long stretches and had virtually no role near the goal line. With Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham gone, Lockett could inherit a bigger role, and his speed and quickness make him a candidate for big plays when Russell Wilson buys time with his legs. Doug Baldwin is still the team's clear No. 1, but Lockett is the ostensible No. 2 at press time, even after the signings of Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown.
After a promise-filled rookie season, Lockett saw less action in Year 2 while playing through a torn PCL. He was still able to log 15 games and managed 14.6 YPC and 9.0 YPT while at less than full health before breaking his leg in Week 16. At 5-10, 182, and running a 4.40 40, Lockett is in the DeSean Jackson mold -- small, slight, fast and lightning quick. Lockett benefits from Russell Wilson's ability to scramble to buy time and make big plays out of broken ones, but Wilson too was hobbled for much of last year. Lockett is expected to be brought back slowly as his leg heals, but he should be ready at some point during training camp. He's still the team's No. 2 receiver behind Doug Baldwin, but tight end Jimmy Graham will see his share of targets. There's upside here -- especially in non-PPR formats -- once Lockett returns to full health.
Seattle's second-round pick last year, Lockett proved to be a dynamic playmaker with six touchdowns on only 69 targets and two touchdowns in the return game (one kick, one punt), to boot. Lockett averaged 9.6 YPT and had two catches of 40 or more yards on modest volume. He also had 75 yards and a score in Seattle's playoff loss to the Panthers. At 5-10, 182, Lockett's not a red-zone target (only four in that area all year), but he ran a 4.40 40, is quick and shifty in the open field and is hard to stay with when Russell Wilson buys time scrambling. With Jermaine Kearse re-signing in Seattle, Doug Baldwin still around and Jimmy Graham possibly returning to action, Lockett's unlikely to see more than modest workload growth, but with Wilson under center, he will make the most of his chances.
The Seahawks traded up 26 spots in the third round to draft Lockett, a somewhat big investment for a special teams player. Coach Pete Carroll made clear that Lockett won't be used much, if at all, in the offense (and at 5-foot-10, 182 pounds, that's probably wise, at least initially). However, the Seahawks were desperate for a returner after finishing 25th in punt return average last year and 30th on kickoff returns, and Lockett was easily the best available option to fill that void in the draft. If he ends up usable in the slot, all the better.
