Wide Receiver Tyler Lockett

One area the Seahawks came into 2018 with question marks was at the wide receiver position. First and foremost, Doug Baldwin was in question for Week 1. He played, but he left with an injury. The Seahawks will be without Baldwin now for a few weeks.

Seattle lost Paul Richardson via free agency, so without he and Baldwin, it’s all on Tyler Lockett and Brandon Marshall. While Marshall’s return to Soldier Field will be an intriguing storyline, Lockett is the guy to keep an eye on.

Lockett has breakaway speed and big-play ability anytime he touches the ball, and Vic Fangio’s defense better spend some time game planning for him.

Without Baldwin, the Seahawks are likely to spread the ball around and you’ll see Russell Wilson use his running backs and tight ends quite a bit. On Sunday, Wilson targeted five different players four or more times, with one of those being Lockett.

Against the Broncos on Sunday, Lockett was able to get behind the secondary on a 51-yard bomb for a score. If the Bears were burned for touchdowns by Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison, Lockett could surely do the same thing if this defense is not careful.
