Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
While Metcalf may be the higher-scoring receiver, Lockett has been mightily impressive catching 15-of-16 targets himself while totaling 159 yards and a touchdown. We know he's the primary slot receiver for Wilson, which is a completely different role, but one that he excels in. The Cowboys have 2017 third-round draft pick Jourdan Lewis covering the slot, someone who's been trending down since coming into the league. Since the start of last year, he's allowed 44-of-62 passing for 568 yards and four touchdowns in his coverage. That 9.16 yards per target is mighty high for a slot cornerback, which is likely why they had Anthony Brown starting in Week 1, only to move him to IR prior to Week 2. When you are playing against a backup cornerback with Russell Wilson as your quarterback, you should expect results. Start Lockett as you normally would, which is a rock-solid WR2 with top-10 upside in any given game.We knew that Kupp's usage would change a bit this year with them wanting to run more 12 personnel, but he's still playing almost every snap and still running about 60 percent of his routes from the slot. That's a big positive in this matchup because of the top five performances against the Bills secondary over the last two years, slot-heavy receivers have accounted for four of them. This is highly unusual. Taron Johnson is the one who'll be tasked with trying to slow Kupp down this week. He was in coverage for eight of Jamison Crowder's receptions in Week 1, even though they amounted to just 56 yards. That's been Johnson's thing over the last two years, allowing a high 74 percent catch-rate, but limiting the yards overall by keeping the play in front of him. Kupp should offer a solid floor with the best matchup of the Rams receivers, though I can't say he's anything more than a mid-to-low-end WR2.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Russ playing as well as he has been lately, it's hard to view the Seattle WRs as anything less than must-start options. Lockett is currently the WR15 on the season and should be viewed as a low-end WR1 in this matchup. The Cowboys are currently allowing 28.8 fantasy points on average to opposing WRs and Lockett always has a good chance of finding the end zone. He's a solid start this week.Kupp has struggled to deliver the high-end production that we all became familiar with throughout the first half of 2019, but he's still producing solid WR2 numbers this year. This is a tough matchup for opposing wide receivers, but Kupp should see enough volume to return low-end WR2 production yet again.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Cowboys are 26th against fantasy receivers, Locket is a WR2 with upside in a likely shootout.Kupp led the NFL in slot receiving yards last year and the Bills have struggled to stop Jamison Crowder and Isiah Ford in the slot. Kupp is an upside WR2 in a great matchup.
