Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett landed on the injury report this week with a hamstring injury, but he is expected to suit up for the team’s matchup with the Cleveland Browns. 

This is a great sign for Seattle, who will also get DK Metcalf back in action after he missed Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks are hoping to move to 5-2 on the season with a win in Week 8.

Lockett is listed as questionable for this game with a hamstring injury, but he is expected to play – barring a setback.

Tyler Lockett OVER 3.5 receptions

Cleveland has one of the best defenses in the NFL, but I think Lockett is being undervalued at his current number for receptions. 

The veteran wideout has at least four catches in four of the team’s six games this season, including three straight. 

Lockett should see more single coverage with Metcalf active, and he’s also been targeted at least four times in every game this season. This may be a game where Seattle has to throw the ball to beat the Browns’ stout defense, and I expect Lockett to benefit.
