Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks @ Oakland Raiders
DK Price: $5,100
Lockett comes in this week priced as the WR37 on Sunday’s main slate on DraftKings. Lockett is coming off his best game of the season where he turned 3 catches into 98 yards and 1 TD. He has now scored a TD in 4-of-5 games this season and gets a plus matchup this week against the Raiders.
Lockett has provided a nice deep threat for Russell Wilson which may come in handy this week against the Raiders. Oakland has given up tons of big plays to wideouts this season essentially on a weekly basis. Here is a list of stat lines from this season of players who have had success against the Raiders that could compare to what we can expect from Lockett:
- Week 1 – Brandin Cooks 5/87
- Week 2 – Emmanuel Sanders 4/96
- Week 3 – Albert Wilson 2/74/1
- Week 3 – Jakeem Grant 2/70/2
- Week 3 – Kenny Stills 3/61/1
- Week 4 – Rashard Higgins 4/61
- Week 5 – Tyrell Williams 3/66
The Raiders have simply struggled giving up huge yards per reception (especially in Week 3) to deep threat options. This bodes incredibly well for Lockett this week who is averaging 17.4 YPR which is fifth best amongst wideouts per PlayerProfiler.com. Lockett is a great value buy considering his 16 fantasy points per game ranks right above Kennan Allen ($7,500, 15.5 FPPG) while saving you $2,400 in cap space.
