| After being hobbled by a PCL injury for much of the 2016 season, Tyler Lockett disappointed fantasy owners by finishing with fewer than 600 receiving yards and just one total touchdown in his second season as a pro. To make matters worse, Lockett ended up breaking his leg in Week 16 and started training camp on the PUP list. He was removed from the PUP list on August 4th and has been participating in camp ever since.
While he has certainly had some big moments, including a breakout performance of seven receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown the week prior to breaking his leg, Lockett has not shown much consistency as a fantasy contributor. He's still just 24 years old, so there is plenty of room for him to continue to grow, but the fact that he's still expected to battle veteran Jermaine Kearse for snaps is not exactly a great sign for his potential fantasy production.
Many will simply look at Lockett's production in his sophomore season and write him off as a player who's not worth fantasy consideration because he did play in every game prior to breaking his leg, but those who dive deeper into the situation would realize that the speedster's game was drastically affected with the PCL injury. While nagging injuries are a cause for concern for players like Lockett, his current ADP is so low that he's practically free in most leagues. If he can get healthy, Lockett is certainly the kind of player who could put together some big games and substantially out-produce his ADP, especially in best-ball formats.
| Doug Baldwin expected to play|
Groin injury still an issue

|Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is going to try to play Sun night vs. Colts with groin injury, per source. Injury been an issue. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: If Baldwin plays, he'll likely be less than 100 percent and could be limited Sunday night. It's tough spot for Baldwin fantasy owners, especially in a good matchup against the Colts. Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson could see more opportunities if Baldwin is limited.
|Seahawks ship WR Jermaine Kearse to Jets|
Seattle lands DL Sheldon Richardson

|The Seattle Seahawks' terrifying defense just hit the upgrade button.
The Seahawks acquired defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson from the New York Jets in exchange for receiver Jermaine Kearse and a 2018 second-round pick, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported, per sources informed of the pact. The teams also swapped seventh-round selections in the deal. (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: The Jets bolstered(?) their amazingly thin receiving corps with Kearse who should have a good chance at steady playing time. That being said, his fantasy value remains minimal given the sorry state of the Jets offense. Tyler Lockett Paul Richardson and Kasen Williams move up the depth chart in Seattle behind Doug Baldwin.
