Seahawks Advanced Stat Of The Week: Tyler Lockett Moves The Chains In Week 8

Seahawks veteran Tyler Lockett showed up in a big way in Seattle’s Week 8 comeback win over the Cleveland Browns.


The Seahawks clawed out a 24-20 comeback victory over the Cleveland Browns at Lumen Field on Sunday, moving to 5-2 and into first place in the NFC West. Wideout Tyler Lockett recorded his third game of five-plus receptions this season, leading Seattle with eight receptions. Following the Week 8 win, FantasyPros advanced analytics broke down Lockett’s dominant performance.

In the first quarter, quarterback Geno Smith evaded pressure in the pocket, finding Lockett in the back of the endzone to put Seattle up 14-0. On the day, the Kansas State alum's eight receptions went for 81 yards (10.1ypc) and a score on nine targets. But the advanced metrics tell the story of Lockett's consistency, and his ability to keep a drive going.

Per Fantasy Pros, Lockett didn't drop any of his eight catchable targets. Of Lockett's eight receptions, five went for 10-plus yards, tying for third amongst all receivers league-wide. After scoring his first touchdown in six weeks, Lockett now looks to record his first 100-yard game of the year.
