As a Lockett owner I don't.
Yeah, Russell is cooking, but there's a lot of mouths to feed in SEA and Lockett is the #3 guy on his team in a gadget role (arguably Chris Carson above him).
Also SEA has had a pretty offensive friendly schedule to start the season, it gets much harder ROS. The hardest defense they've faced this season is the Dolphins.
Browns schedule is a lot more friendly.
The Seattle defense is also pretty friendly, making it likely we're not going to see many low-scoring games from them. Beckham will see more targets most weeks, but I expect Lockett to be slightly more productive with his. Both are solid #2 WRs the rest of the way, but I like the second fiddle in an excellent passing offense more than the top guy from a bad one. But, again, the difference is small, and the trade is still a great one for the team getting Beckham and Gurley.
