Tyler Lockett was looking like a league winner for most of 2019, with three 100-yard games, three double-digit catch games and six touchdowns through the first nine weeks of the season.

In three games since, however, the Seattle Seahawks wideout has caught four balls (on nine targets) for 64 scoreless yards, including a goose egg against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Unsurprisingly, Lockett's drop in production perfectly mirrors Russell Wilson's recent decrease in his fantasy output.

Over the last three weeks, Wilson has thrown four touchdowns to three interceptions, and is averaging 224.0 passing yards per game during that span. That's a significant decline from the 278.4 yards per game he averaged over the first nine weeks of the season.

Things could be looking up for both Lockett and Wilson, though. The Seahawks will play the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14, and Wilson threw for 268 yards and four touchdowns the last time these two met. Lockett, meanwhile, caught all four of his targets for 51 yards and a TD in that game.

Lockett comes in at WR23 in our Week 14 fantasy football PPR rankings, while Wilson checks in at QB4.
