Tyler Lockett
WR - SEA
Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
If you're looking for a boom-or-bust WR, look no further than Lockett. While his 2020 stats look great, there's a greater context that doesn't come across when looking at the fact that he finished with 1,054 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns last season. The majority of Lockett's production came in three games last year, which is extremely concerning for fantasy managers that are playing in weekly redraft leagues. He absolutely comes with week-winning upside, but there's the potential that he can hurt your fantasy lineup if he doesn't come through with a huge performance. This all comes down to Lockett's value point and where you're able to get him in drafts. If you're able to secure him as a WR3 on your roster, this is enough of a discount to where you can live with the potential range of outcomes. However, if you're needing to rely on him as a WR2 or a consistent producer to keep your lineup in matchups, this is a strategy that can lead to a lot of heartache. We know what Lockett can be for fantasy, so he's still worth selecting in your drafts this year. However, it's going to all come down to his ADP and what it settles out at by the time drafts start happening.As college offenses progress and the coaching gets better, we're starting to see more and more receivers come into the NFL and make an impact immediately. No receiver better exemplifies this from last season than Chase Claypool, who was not high on consensus draft boards, but came in and absolutely shattered expectations. He ran hot and cold throughout the season due to the offense's struggles, but the talent is absolutely there. While Diontae Johnson should be Big Ben's favorite target yet again this season, Claypool's big play ability is going to lead to some fantastic fantasy performances. When it's all said and done, it would not shock me to see Claypool end the season with the highest fantasy finish among the Steelers WRs.

The only knock in Lockett is he's undersized at 5'10". That limits his TD ceiling, especially with DK Metcalf opposite of him. Still Lockett's is usually good for about 1,000 yards and 8 TDs.INJURY UPDATE- Claypool went down in practice with an injury to either his ankle or knee. Early reports are that it doesn't look like anything major. Claypool is a good young player in a terrible situation. If he was on another team I'd be more bullish on his 2021 outlook. Instead I'm fading all Steelers. If they beat me they beat me, but the line and Big Ben scare me. Not much upside imo. For that reason I'm passing on him.

Lockett was given the "boom-or-bust" label after his rocky 2020, but he's been a surprisingly stable and consistent wideout across the last three seasons. In that span, Lockett has averaged just north of 1,000 receiving yards and 9 receiving TDs. He's also coming off a career-high 100 receptions. Fade at your own risk.

Good bar trivia: Name only other WR besides Davante Adams with 100+ catches, 1000+ yards, 10+ TDs in 2020? That's right, it's Lockett - Top 15 WR in 3 straight seasons

Sure, Lockett finished as the No. 9 fantasy wide receiver last year, but ask anyone who rostered him if he was a WR1. Heck, as them if he was a reliable WR2. The answer would be no, as he finished with WR2 or better numbers just 37.5 percent of the time which was behind players like Diontae Johnson, Curtis Samuel, John Brown, and Jamison Crowder. How's that possible? Because 48.7 percent of his production last year came from just three games. He's going to have massive games, but relying on him as anything more than a volatile WR3 is going to lead to disappointment.Claypool may have finished as the WR19 on the season, but his year was littered with lackluster performances. He posted WR3 or better type numbers in just 50 percent of the games last year, which was tied with Jamison Crowder and DeVante Parker for 34th among wide receivers. His four-touchdown game in Week 5 really catapulted his numbers at season's end, as he failed to top 59 yards in 11-of-16 games, making him a touchdown-or-bust option most weeks. With Ben Roethlisberger's arm strength seemingly deteriorating by the day, it's tough to see Claypool having a true breakout season in 2021, as he relies on those high value targets more than JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson do. Claypool is an upside pick for sure, but not one I'd bet heavily on.

Lockett is your classic boom or bust option. While he's currently being taken as a WR2 (and is a low-end WR2 in my rankings), the week-to-week inconsistently makes him someone I'd rather have as a flex option. It's all going to come down to where he's being drafted - his ability to downright win fantasy matchups makes him an attractive pick in the mid-to-late 5th and beyond, but beware he can sink a week just as easily.

 2020 Stat Line: 109 Targets, 62 Receptions, 873 Yards, 9 Touchdowns. He could be DK Metcalf or Martavis Bryant.

Lockett scored 105 of his 215.4 fantasy points in three games or 48 percent of his fantasy production. He had too many low-scoring games for me to rank him as anything more than a WR3 that will be propped up by a few monster games.Claypool had a fantastic rookie year and he will look to build on the 183.9 fantasy points he scored as a rookie.
