You can find our full dynasty startup, dynasty rookie, and dynasty superflex rookie rankings that will be updated through draft season.

Let’s take a look at players our analysts are avoiding in dynasty startup drafts.

Tyler Lockett (WR – SEA)
Expert Consensus Ranking No. 91 overall – WR40

The only player that I was forced to move down my WR dynasty rankings after conducting my first start-up draft this season was Tyler Lockett. And it’s because I can’t cultivate a likely scenario where the Seahawks wide receiver accrues any type of long-term value in 2021.

He is turning 30 years old this season and finds him in a situation with Geno Smith/Drew Lock at quarterback. Lockett’s infamous for his roller-coaster production, and I expect no less based on his current situation in 2022. The major difference being the low points will be more frequent than ever with the massive QB downgrade.

Lockett averaged just 9.0 fantasy points per game (47th) without Wilson last season.

Then factor in Lockett’s massive contract that makes him tough to trade until at least 2024; the case for investing anything worthwhile on him in dynasty start-ups is not strong with him stuck in Seattle for the foreseeable future.

In my recent dynasty start-up draft with sharp fantasy football industry folk, Lockett was selected as the WR55. His ADP is WR39.
