Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett
While Russell Wilson still does not look right as a passer, he was able to hit Lockett on a couple of deep shots early — a 55-yarder and a 39-yarder — on Monday night against Washington. Lockett caught three passes for 96 yards in that first half before being shut out after halftime. That all-or-nothing result is familiar to Lockett’s fantasy managers; he has finished five games with more than 90 receiving yards and five others with fewer than 40. This isn’t a stay-away matchup; the bigger worries for Lockett this week are Wilson’s health and the Seahawks’ maddeningly conservative offense.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Until the Seahwks go back to being more aggressive on offense (and who knows when that’ll happen?), Lockett is just a boom-or-bust player on the WR2/3 borderline. He’s still worthy of starting in 12-team leagues.
