Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Friday, May 31 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Lockett: Highest Passer Rating When Targeted
Happy Friday! What a great way to start your day—seeing one of our star wide receivers Tyler Lockett take the cake for having the highest passer rating when targeted in the 2018 season. Pro Football Focus tweeted out a graphic on Thursday listing Lockett at the top of a three-man list.
Lockett, recording a passer rating of 158.3, beat out two AFC players by a pretty big margin. Chargers WR Mike Williams and Bengals WR Tyler Boyd both recorded passer ratings of 134.4 and 127.8, respectively.
Enough about them though, I'm sure what you really care about is Lockett's stats. The soon-to-be fifth-year Seahawk easily had the best season of his NFL career in 2018 recording career-highs of 965 yards, 57 receptions, and 10 touchdowns. Lockett was targeted 65 times, a number that really helped him climb up to the number one spot on Pro Football Focus' list.
Pro Football Focus is a notable website in the football community that thoroughly analyzes the National Football League and NCAA Division-I football. The analysis is extremely in-depth as it "covers every player on every play of every game for the most comprehensive analysis of player performance," says Profootballfocus.com.
Get ready for the 2019 season as I'm sure we can expect some more explosive plays that we often see from Lockett. Everyone loves those deep balls thrown from quarterback Russell Wilson finding Lockett in the corner of the end zone.
