REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Based on our latest projection, you can expect Tyler Lockett to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 111 projected fantasy points puts him at #3 behind Davante Adams and ahead of DeAndre Hopkins. He has averaged 10.53 fantasy points in his past 40 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 12.4 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#4) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #4 ranked wide receiver. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite wide receiver. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Tyler Lockett is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #1 fantasy position rank.
PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 9 FOR TYLER LOCKETT WITH FEWER FPS THAN STEFON DIGGS
