News: 6 days agoLockett secured five of eight targets for 47 yards in the Seahawks' 41-35 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night.
Spin: The veteran speedster was in the unusual role of playing third fiddle, as Jaxon Smith-Njigba recorded a career-high seven catches while DK Metcalf racked up three touchdown grabs. Lockett was relatively efficient with his solid target total, but his yardage tally was his second straight under 50. Greater contributions will almost certainly be needed from Lockett for the Seahawks to have a chance of prevailing in a critical Week 14 road contest against the 49ers on Sunday, Dec. 10.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Lockett came at a major discount during 2022 fantasy drafts after the Seahawks replaced Russell Wilson with Geno Smith. If you took the discount, congrats on the steal. Lockett had one of the highest floors in fantasy, posting a top-30 point total in 13 of 16 games. He finished the season as a top-16 fantasy WR for the fifth consecutive season and -- believe it or not -- he's the only player in the league with at least eight TDs each of the past five seasons. Lockett is now 30 years old, but he's been durable (exactly 16 games played in six straight seasons) and his play didn't slip last season. The arrival of Jaxon Smith-Njigba could reduce his targets slightly, but Lockett remains in the WR3 mix.
