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.It appeared that Jones may have lost the starting job last week. It's a shame because it was almost as if the Bucs were looking for a reason, but he gave them one when he botched the handoff leading to a turnover. Bruce Arians said after the game that he's not planning on giving the starting job to Fournette, and that he likes him to come into the game later and finish teams off. This could very easily become a Peyton Barber/Jones situation from last year where we never seemingly know which one to start. For now, it appears that Jones hasn't lost all hope, but he's on thin ice every week, which can't be good for his mental state entering a game. The Broncos have allowed 100-yard rushers in back-to-back games to open the season, as both Derrick Henry and James Conner were able to get there. That's a big change from last year when they allowed two 100-yard rushers all season. Oddly enough, Fournette was one of them when he rattled off 225 yards on 29 carries in their Week 4 matchup. The bottom line with this matchup is that we have a lack of confidence in which running back to trust. Jones appears to be the 1A but he presents so much risk that he can't be played as anything more than a low-end RB3 with tons of risk. Meanwhile, Fournette is going to get some touches, though how many depends on if Jones screws something up. Fournette should be considered a high-end RB4 who has some upside, sure, but also has a five-touch floor if Jones is running hot.
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.Jones was able to cash in last week and find the end zone, but it looks like the fumbled hand-off was enough for Bruce Arians to send him to the bench. It's unfair, but it looks like Jones has suddenly lost his stranglehold on this backfield. He can't be trusted anywhere near your starting lineup this week and is now in RB4 territory.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Cowboys are 26th against fantasy receivers, Locket is a WR2 with upside in a likely shootout.
