Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Adam Thielen has been a model of consistency with top 14 fantasy point-per-game finishes in four of the last five seasons. Last season he finally began to show his age, though. After strong seasons in yards per route run since 2016, Thielen finally slipped to 1.63, which ranked 48th (among wideouts with 50 or more targets, per PFF), immediately behind Mecole Hardman. Thielen has been top 23 in red-zone targets in four of the last five seasons, with three years on his resume with nine or more receiving touchdowns. With declining per route efficiency, he'll need the touchdowns (and many of them) to continue as a productive fantasy wide receiver.Tyler Lockett is slipping down draft boards because of the impending dumpster fire that will be Geno Smith or Drew Lock at quarterback. Lockett was one of the most efficient wide receivers in football last season, so despite the obvious downgrade in quarterback play, there are reasons to remain hopeful for his 2022 season. Last year he ranked ninth in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets, per PFF) and receiving yards per game. If Lockett can hold off father time one more season, he can return WR3 numbers with boom weeks still in the range of outcomes.
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
The 32-year old wideout has made his hay in fantasy because of his "ability" to find the end zone 24 times since the start of 2020, but it's something that just isn't sustainable in the long term. Based on Thielen's targets and yardage totals, his total TD number should be closer to 16. Justin Jefferson is an ascending rocketship that will only see his TDs rise entering Year 3, most likely coming at the detriment of Thielen. Not to mention, AT's age may finally be catching up to him after he posted his lowest PFF receiving grade and yards per route run since he first became a starter back in 2016.I can't cultivate a likely scenario where the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver accrues any type of worthwhile fantasy 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 - four top-5 finishes, seven outside the top-36 in 2021 - and I expect no less based on his current situation in 2022. The major difference being the bad games 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. With Lockett competing for targets alongside Metcalf in a run-heavy offense, he looks like a straight-up fade unless his ADP falls dramatically.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Thielen was injured late in the year and missed 3 games, but still tallied 728 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns. His red zone abilities will keep him in the WR3 discussion in 2022, but health at 32-years old is a big concern for him going forward.Locket had 7 games where he scored 8 or less fantasy points and 4 games where he scored more than 20 fantasy points. Lockett is an incredibly volatile fantasy player and now he is no longer playing with Russell Wilson. He is a boom / bust WR3 if the Seahawks can find a quarterback.
