The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 12 Wide Receivers

Tyler Lockett

Grab a Helmet

1) Tyler Lockett @ Washington

This should be one of those highly productive air shows where both DK Metcalf and Lockett crack triple-digits. Lockett has been the less-effective of the two star receivers (13.7 FPts/G), his lowest average since 2017 when he was the fourth option behind Doug Baldwin, Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson. Lockett was very productive on just five targets last week, catching four for 115 yards. In this game he should see at least 10 targets.

2) Brandon Aiyuk vs. Minnesota

Deebo Samuel is still the “big dog” in San Francisco, but Aiyuk appears to be out of Kyle Shanahan’s early-season doghouse and could produce solid numbers in Week 12 against a vulnerable Vikings defense. For the season the Vikings rank 29th, allowing 41.3 FPts/G to opposing wideouts, but since Week 7 they rank dead last allowing 48.8 FPts/G. Aiyuk averaged just 3.2 targets through Week 7, but has averaged 6.5 targets in the four games since then and he’s produce two 20+ point games.

3) Elijah Moore @ Houston

I cut Moore in Week 6 when I needed a roster spot. Boy was that dumb. Since his return from London he’s produced double-digit points in every game including two games above 27 fantasy points. He’s seen 7.4 targets per game and averaged 18.7 fantasy points since Week 7. He faces a Texans’ defense which has allowed 37.5 fantasy points for the season, but 47.4 fantasy points per game since Week 7.

Grab some Pine

1) Courtland Sutton vs. LA Chargers

Sutton signed a big four-year contract this week, but he’s currently in a slump having produced just 78 yards and no touchdowns over his last three games. It’s probably not a coincidence that Jerry Jeudy returned from his ankle injury three games ago. With Tim Patrick and Noah Fant the Broncos have a lot of mouths to feed and everyone gets a piece of the pie.

2) Kenny Golladay vs. Philadelphia

Golladay seemed off his game and disinterested Monday night against Tampa Bay and it doesn’t get any easier this Sunday against an Eagles’ pass defense ranked No. 3 against opposing wideouts. Assuming Darius Slay plays (he left the Week 11 game in concussion protocol) he’s shut down almost every receiver he’s played against this season while ranking No. 5 of PFF’s 116 ranked cornerbacks. Also, quarterback Daniel Jones and the offensive line are struggling, making Golladay a poor option.

3) A.J. Brown @ New England

With Julio Jones and Derrick Henry on IR, it’s pretty likely that Bill Belichick will do his best to take Brown out of the game with constant double teams. It’s what he does and he’s pretty good at it. The Patriots have allowed only one receiver to score more than 22 fantasy points all season (CeeDee Lamb).
