I was a little worried about Lockett last week, as he's not someone who plays well through injuries, but he managed to make it work against the Cardinals, leading the team with nine catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. Sadly, in his last five non-Cardinals matchups, Lockett has failed to top 66 yards or catch a touchdown. Will a matchup with the Eagles be better to him? That's tough to say because they've allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points through the air to wide receivers. Why do I specify through the air? Well, they've allowed a ridiculous 165 yards and three touchdowns on the ground to wide receivers, which props up the overall numbers they've allowed to receivers. Lockett is going to see a lot of Nickell Robey-Coleman in coverage, one of the free agents the Eagles brought over this offseason. He hasn't done a great job in coverage, though, allowing 18-of-21 passing for 213 yards and a touchdowns while in the slot. It's not like their backup Cre'Von LeBlanc has done better, allowing 18-of-23 passing for 206 yards and a touchdown in the slot. The only slot-heavy receivers who've seen more than five targets against them were Tyler Boyd (10/125/0) and Cooper Kupp (5/81/0), so it's not a matchup to avoid. Lockett should remain in lineups as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 who does have some volatility, but you'll live with it.After what was a brutal start to the game for Brown where he clearly dropped multiple passes, he made up for it by fighting for what was one of the more impressive touchdowns this season. He saw seven targets in that game, now making in 7-of-8 games with seven-plus targets, though he's still yet to see double-digits. The only game he didn't hit that number was against his Week 12 opponent, the Colts. After catching a pass for 21 yards on the first drive, Brown didn't record a single catch for the remainder of the game. He did drop what would've been a 70-plus-yard touchdown, though. Oddly enough, that's the only game he hasn't scored in since returning to the lineup in Week 5. The Colts have allowed just nine wide receiver touchdowns this season, which is tied for the ninth-fewest in the league. They've seen just 18.3 wide receiver targets per game, which is the fourth-fewest, and the reason why we've only seen two top-10 performances against them all season. They have allowed a decent floor considering the lack of targets available, as 15 different wide receivers have finished as top-36 options. While I wouldn't put him in the WR1 conversation this week, I would put him into lineups as a back-end WR2 who should bounce back in their second meeting.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Lockett has rebounded a bit with 26.3 fantasy points over his last two games after having only 11.3 fantasy points in the 2 games prior to that. He is a low-end WR1 against the Eagles 12th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.Brown only had 1 reception for 21 yards on 4 targets the last time these teams met. It seems unlikely Brown is shutdown like that again, but he is a boom / bust WR2 against a tough Colts D.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Things weren't looking good for AJ Brown there for a while in last week's contest. He had a few uncharacteristic drops, but he absolutely made up for it with his monstrous TD catch. Brown was shut down the last time they played the Colts, but he's too talented to sit on your bench. Brown should be viewed as a mid-range WR2 this week due to the matchup.
