WR - SEA
Week 7 Outlook
Lockett's been a bit of a disappointment the past couple of weeks, but he simply deserves to be in your starting lineup every single week. He's attached to arguably the best QB in the game and he's still seeing the targets in the key areas of the field that can lead to top-tier fantasy production. He should be viewed as a high-end WR2 this week with upside.
He's taken a backseat to Metcalf this year, though it's worth noting Lockett has seen just one less target than him. Don't let the last two games deter you from Lockett, as he's still capable of single-handedly winning you a week. The Cardinals have allowed just the second-fewest fantasy points per target to receivers, so it hasn't been a smash spot, though if there were one spot that I'd label as a weakness among their cornerbacks, it's the slot cornerback Byron Murphy, which is the guy who'll defend Lockett in this game. He's allowed 22-of-36 passing for 275 yards and a touchdown in his coverage. The only slot-heavy receivers who saw more than five targets against the Cardinals were Jamison Crowder, who popped off for eight catches, 116 yards, and a touchdown (WR7), and CeeDee Lamb, who snagged seven balls for 64 yards (WR27). If you were to pick which Seahawks wide receiver had the better cornerback matchup in this game, it'd be Lockett. He should get back into lineups as a high-end WR2.
Locket has 6 receptions for 83 yards and no touchdowns in his three games since scoring 3 touchdowns in Week 3. Lockett is a boom / bust WR3 in a game that could turn into a shootout.
