Kyle Yates

Are all of our concerns about Lockett's fantasy outlook put to rest after last week? I would venture to say so due to 20 targets going Lockett's way against the Cardinals. There are going to be some games where the targets go Metcalf's way and then there are going to be some games where they all go to Lockett. We just need to keep viewing Lockett as a low-end WR1 every single week and deal with the potential range of outcomes.Boyd put on a show last week and he should be viewed as a solid low-end WR2 in this matchup with upside.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
His 53.0 PPR points in Week 7 were the most since Will Fuller's 53.7 PPR points in Week 5 of last year. He came into Week 7 as the No. 17 wide receiver and left that game as the No. 2 receiver. There are going to be some swings in his performances with Metcalf out there stealing some production, but Lockett should've been a borderline WR1 in lineups regardless of that game. The 49ers have allowed just 7.36 yards per target to wide receivers, which is the lowest number in the league. They've allowed just three receivers to finish with more than 60 yards. There's been just four receivers who've totaled more than four receptions. They've done a good job with slot receivers over the last two weeks on the stat sheet, as Julian Edelman caught just one pass for 13 yards while Cooper Kupp caught three passes for 11 yards. I say stat sheet because we all know about Cam Newton's horrendous game, and if you watched Kupp's game, you'd know that he lost the ball in the lights on what would've been a long touchdown, and then he dropped another end zone target. Believe me when I say that Jamar Taylor is not good, and he's the cornerback who'll be covering Lockett most of the time. He's been on six teams over the last four years. Lockett should remain in lineups as a high-end WR2 despite the tough matchup on paper.I hope you took my advice and bought low on Boyd, who I view as the No. 1 receiver in this offense. His current 16-game pace is 139 targets, 110 receptions, 1,182 yards, and five touchdowns. That would've been enough to be the No. 7 wide receiver in PPR formats last year. This matchup against the Titans is great for the Bengals wide receiver trio, as 63.7 percent of the passes their opponents have thrown have been directed at wide receivers, which is the third-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know that they've allowed the second-fewest yards per reception to wide receivers, as that seems to highlight Boyd's role over the middle of the field, while both Green and Higgins have been targeted further down the field (both have average depth of targets of 13.5-plus yards) while Boyd has averaged just 8.8 air yards per target. The Titans have used a combination of Chris Jackson and Kristian Fulton (who was injured in Week 7) to defend the slot, and they've combined to allow 24-of-30 passing for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Keep Boyd in lineups as a stable WR2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Lockett has 78 fantasy points in Week 3 and Week 7 combined and 40.7 fantasy points in his other 4 games. Lockett is a little more up and down than I would like, but he has a decent floor and is a low-end WR1 against the 49ers 6th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.The Titans are 29th against fantasy wide receivers, Boyd should be a solid WR2 with upside this week.
