The Saints are 27th against fantasy wide receivers, Lockett should be in the WR2 discussion this week.Indianapolis is 30th against fantasy running backs, I like Freeman to compete for RB2 value on the road this week.
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.It's been a brutal start to the season for Freeman, as he's totaled just 41 yards on 19 carries (2.2 yards per carry) without a single touchdown and even lost a fumble. The snap count is also much closer than his owners would like, as he's played 76 snaps compared to 61 for Smith. It doesn't help that they lost their starting right guard for the year and then appeared to lose their starting right tackle last week (though he returned late in the game). Under Frank Reich, the Colts have still yet to allow a 100-yard rusher, though they have allowed a massive 5.50 yards per carry (sixth-most) through two games this season. They've also struggled at defending running backs through the air, as they've allowed 8.36 yards per target (fourth highest mark in the league). It's possible that Freeman has caught them at the perfect time after having two brutal matchups against the Vikings and Eagles to start the year. Freeman has seen double the targets that Smith and has nearly double the carries. The Falcons have to know they'll need Freeman to get going if they want to win games, and this game could help boost some of that confidence. He should be in lineups as a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 who might surprise given the Colts struggles.
