Seahawks Beat: Tyler Lockett could see more targets

ESPN - [Full Article]

Tyler Lockett continues to help the Seahawks in a number of ways. In last week's win over the Minnesota Vikings, he caught seven balls for 90 yards. Both were season highs. On one play, Lockett made a 29-yard reception down the right sideline, took a big hit from the safety and popped right back up. He has shown the ability to stretch the field and is really slippery on the screens and shorter routes that call for the receiver to pick up yards after the catch.

On the season, Lockett has 35 catches for 436 yards. Both marks rank fourth among rookie wide receivers. He's scored five touchdowns (two as a returner) and has a catch rate of 79.5 percent.

Fantasy Impact: 

When he was coming out of college, some pegged Lockett as a slot receiver, but according to ESPN Stats & Information, 24 of his 35 receptions have come when he's lined up outside, the story said. Lockett has been targeted 15 times during the last three games. Fourteen of those attempts have resulted in completions for 176 yards. The story said Lockett could very well be targeted more the final month of the season as both QB Russell Wilson and the offense heats up.
