ANALYSIS: Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett caught a touchdown on Sunday and looks to make an impact as the third receiving option in Seattle. Lockett was only targeted once against the 49ers in Week 12, but has been targeted at least five times twice in the last five games. He has caught 35 of his 55 targets this season and has 425 yards this season.

In Seattle, there are many targets for Russell Wilson including Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, and Jimmy Graham, but Lockett has still found a way to make an impact. Unfortunately, though, Lockett has been the player with the fewest targets of the four over the last three weeks. A lack of a running game in Seattle has opened up opportunities for Wilson, but Mike Davis' good game on Sunday night could mean that the Seahawks run a bit more.

Matchups against the league's best defense against WR (Jacksonville) and a top-10 defense (Rams) are far from ideal, but a matchup against the league's fourth-worst defense against WR (Dallas) does loom in Week 16. Russell Wilson has been on fire, giving a bump to all of his receivers, and Lockett will look to capitalize on Wilson's MVP run. He may not be a safe option as a starting receiver for the playoff run, but a championship week matchup against the Cowboys makes him a good player to stash.
