      Lockett hasn’t put up good numbers the last 3 weeks in my league he has scored 4,0,and 8 so I’m having a hard time trusting him in my semifinals matchup. I know that Childs has him projected higher than Mike Williams and Terry McLaurin but I’m thinking of playing McLaurin over both of him because of the matchup with Philly and he seams the safest of the 3 .  Who would you start out of the 3? thanks

      I’m placing my bet on Russell Wilson here.

      There hasn’t been a Lockett sighting since Week 9 (13/152/2). Over his last four games, he caught only eight of his 15 targets for 107 yards with emptiness in each game (3/26, 1/38, 0/0, and 4/43). His slide pushed him all the way to 18th in WR scoring (14.69 FPPG). Lockett played great in Week 3 (11/154/1) with two other serviceable games (10/79 and 6/100). On the year, he averages only 6.7 targets per game. The Panthers fell to 25th in WR defense (38.62 FPPG – 197/2402/10 on 304 targets) after struggling vs. WR in Week 14 (14/271/2). Six WRs gained over 100 yards against Carolina (Chris Godwin – 8/121/1, D.J. Chark – 8/164/2, Chris Godwin – 10/51, Davante Adams – 7/118, Calvin Ridley – 8/143/1, and Michael Thomas – 10/101/1). CB Ross Cockrell is one of the better slot cover covers, which tend to low catch rate and only one TD allowed. His direction looks dismal and his WR/CB matchup does point to only a midteen game at best, but his star power and a wide-open game could lead to a possible impact game. I like him better at Fanduel that DraftKings based on his salary.
