Draft note
by John Paulsen
Lockett had his third-straight season with at least 1,054 yards and eight touchdowns by posting 73-1,175-8 in his seventh season. He finished WR19 through Week 17 last season (the span I usually use to avoid final week shenanigans), but when his huge Week 18 is included, he was the WR13. He was also the WR13 in 2020 and the WR18 in 2019. So why is he going off the board as the WR46? Well, he’s undergoing a massive quarterback change from Russell Wilson to Geno Smith/Drew Lock, and he’s entering his age-30 season. I’m not worried about his age, but the quarterback situation certainly is an issue. The good news is that Smith targeted Lockett at a 28.4% rate in his 95 pass attempts last season. The bad news is that he didn’t catch a touchdown, while DK Metcalf had four. Smith wasn’t bad last year–65/95 for 702 yards, five touchdowns, one interception–but he only threw for 7.25 yards per attempt when targeting Lockett while Wilson averaged 12.24 YPA when targeting Lockett last year. (On the flip side, Wilson averaged only 6.63 YPA and Smith averaged 11.95 YPA when targeting Metcalf.) Lockett is too good to be going outside the top 40 at his position, but he’s unlikely to finish in the top 15-20 too. The Seahawks will be run-heavy and the quarterback position is a major question mark.

SEA WR Tyler Lockett - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
It may have felt like it was a very quiet year for Tyler Lockett, but he still wound up as a top-20 wide receiver with over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns yet again (73-1175-8). As our own John Paulsen notes, even without his big Week 17 performance (5-98-2), Lockett was WR19.

2022 Fantasy Downside
Lockett is starting to get up there in age at 30 years old. But probably the bigger issue is that Russell Wilson is gone and those two were two peas in a pod. When Wilson was out, Geno Smith seemed to connect more with DK Metcalf than he did with Lockett and Lockett had zero touchdowns with Smith to Metcalf’s four, per Paulsen.

2022 Bottom Line
Seeing Lockett outside the top 40 wide receivers drafted just seems so odd. Yes, he was inconsistent last season and either Geno Smith or Drew Lock will be the next quarterback, but Lockett is still at least a top-40 receiver, maybe even top 30. He’s our No. 33 WR, which feels about right based on his 2021 performance and other factors.
