Wednesday Round-Up: Tyler Lockett Earns Offensive Player Of The Week Honors From Pro Football Focus

The Seahawks’ wide receiver had a monster performance against the Jaguars to get his team back in the win column.


Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Wednesday, Nov. 3 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

PFF: Tyler Lockett Named Offensive Player Of The Week

After a torrent start to the 2021 season, Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett cooled off as the team began to struggle.

That all changed in Week 8, as the Seahawks secured a blowout victory and Lockett dominated the Jaguars' secondary. After hauling in two receptions in each of the prior two weeks, the seventh-year pro totaled a season-high 12 catches on 13 targets. He added 142 receiving yards, his second-best output of the season.

Pro Football Focus recognized Lockett's performance, naming him their Week 8 Offensive Player of the Week. He also made PFF's Team of the Week as the No. 1 wide receiver.

Here's what PFF's Anthony Treash wrote about Lockett:

"The Russell Wilson-less Seattle Seahawks had no issue moving the ball against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, and the reliability of wide receiver Tyler Lockett was a key reason why. 

"Lockett was Geno Smith's go-to target on the day, as the ball was thrown his way on 54.2% of his routes -- the second-highest target rate by any pass-catcher in the 2021 season.

"Lockett made the most of that large workload, hauling in every catchable target en route to a 91.2 PFF grade and 142 receiving yards. His 5.92 yards per route run marked the second-most productive game on a per-route basis of his entire NFL career."
