Tyler Lockett 2017 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

I think the clock is ticking on this kid. 61 Offensive snaps last week? Rolling him out there this week (mostly cuz I like to be right [and am frequently NOT], and I waited on WR)

 

Over his last 7 HEALTHY games (removing the one where he broke his leg and the 1st game of this year) he's pacing at 101 targets, 62 rec, 930 yds and a couple TD. Not WR2 #'s unless you include rushing & punt return TD's...which are harder to count on. I'm banking on his upside and big play ability.

With Richardson in the way it’s hard to see him get any traction.

Uhhhhhh uhmmmmmmmm yaaaaaa no.

No idea why you say that.  Richardson is the better receiver and it’s not close. Only thing Lockett has over him is speed and after his injury it’s probably close in that aspect as well. Richardson has better hands, a bigger catch radius, and runs better routes.

I love Richardson as a prospect, as he has good measurables and a penchant for making breathtaking grabs. That said, it's incorrect to state that speed is what Lockett has over him... Lockett is way more elusive, which includes burst, moves, vision, balance, etc. Indeed, he's just a superior playmaker with the ball in his hands.

Hey guys, who is the better WR to own? Lockett or Richardson or neither (I know Baldwin is the best) 

 

 

Coin flip either one can be the #2 wr on seatlle any given week
