Expert 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Edelman matched his season-high with 12 targets and nine catches last week in Miami, and now has at least 100 yards or a touchdown in six-of-nine games he's played in. Edelman should again be targeted early and often in the short-to-intermediate range against a Steelers defense that likes to blitz. With a high-scoring, back-and-forth gamescript likely, Edelman is an appealingly high-end WR2 this week. 
Scott Engel
RotoExperts
Has scored in two of his past 36 TDs in 7 road games this year, he is TD dependent in a good way
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Lockett has recorded five receptions in three of his four games without a touchdown, so the floor isn't dangerously low if Doug Baldwin remains on the mend. Still yet to exceed that mark all season, he's still reliant on superb, and probably unsustainable scoring efficiency. He found the end zone on his only Week 13 catch against the 49ers, who have allowed 13.7 yards per catch and an NFL-high 20 touchdowns to wide receivers. Unlike the Vikings, they're the proper opponent to bet on a big end-zone strike. It's hard to see many teams having three superior wideouts than Lockett.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Edelman had 9 receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown last week, he should be a WR2 against a Steelers D that struggles with slot wide receivers. Lockett has been a touchdown machine this year and he is a WR2 against a shaky 49ers secondary.
