2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Generates 120 receiving yards
WRSeattle Seahawks
January 5, 2019
Lockett caught four of six passes for 120 yards in Saturday's playoff loss to the Cowboys.
ANALYSIS
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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
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.
