Tyler Lock-It?

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has registered 100 targets in each of the past four seasons (i.e. every season since Seattle drafted D.K. Metcalf). He’s been one of the most consistent target earners in the NFL, but he was on another level last year when it came to creating receptions (and fantasy points!) from targets.

Among wide receivers with 100+ targets in 2022, Lockett led the league in percent of targets that resulted in a reception (77.1%) and registered the 2nd-lowest drop percent in the NFL (2.3%). And in each of the past five seasons dating back to 2018, Lockett has had AT LEAST 8 TDs. That’s unparalelled consistency. This is excellent news for managers with Lockett rostered in their leagues, as it gives hope that Lockett will not be relegated to being the odd man out with the addition of Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

Lockett has earned his share against strong competition plenty of years before, and even with the addition of JSN, Lockett figures to be squarely in the WR2 mix come the end of the season. His weekly upside in Seattle’s offense remains largely unchanged, with any of the new Big-3 wideouts being liable to finish inside the Top-12 any given game.
