Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 27th against fantasy wide receivers, Lockett should be in the WR2 discussion this week.Edelman should have a great game against a Jets team that allowed him to have nine receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns against last year.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Edelman took a back seat to Antonio Brown last week, something that could be an issue going forward (at least for however long Brown is permitted to play). Both players are adept at operating in the short-to-intermediate portions of the field, and will have to compete for Tom Brady's attention. This week's matchup with the Jets is an appealing one, but Edelman looks more like an upside WR3/flex right now than the weekly WR2 he was before Brown's signing.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Lockett had his first 10-catch game last week and should be asked to play a big role against the Saints this week. As long as Teddy can keep New Orleans scoring points, Lockett and the Seattle passing game should be in for a good day. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He has played 68 percent of his snaps in the slot, which is huge for this game. The Saints have P.J. Williams covering the slot, which might just be the best matchup you could ask for. Since the start of 2018, Williams has faced 102 targets in coverage. On those targets, he's allowed 73 receptions for 923 yards and nine touchdowns. That's an average of 9.05 yards per target with a touchdown every 11.3 targets. During that same timespan, Lockett has averaged 12.80 yards per target with a touchdown every 7.7 targets. Call me crazy, but this seems like a really good matchup for Lockett, who's coming off a 12-target, 10-catch game. He needs to be in lineups as a rock-solid WR2 who has big-time upside.
