Lockett might be his team's #1, but he's not the kind of player that is likely to get a massive target load.
Not true. He was the engine of KSU's passing offense for two years. 89th percentile Dominator Rating.
I feel like I've said this a thousand times, here, everywhere: Tyler Lockett is an every-level receiver with a complete route-tree.
Why, according to coaches and OTA/minicamp witnessing reporters, is he now the main guy in the slot in 3-wide, effectively inheriting Baldwin's role, which was more possession-oriented than Lockett's prior role? Because Lockett's a complete receiver; he can do that. Why is Schotty talking about moving him around the formation, playing *all* positions? Because he's a complete receiver; he can do that.
He's on a team that doesn't want to pass the ball.
True. But the nice thing about dynasty is that things can change, so it's wise to temper your investments in preference of talent before situation, particularly
Lockett is still young. He's tied long term to one of football's best QBs. Both have longer leashes than Schottenheimer.
I think he's a high end WR2 at best.
Near-term, I agree.
I also think there is a good chance DK or a future acquisition becomes the #1.
After watching Metcalf's attempts to run curl routes, he won't be doing it.
I like Coutee too, but I think he's the 3rd best receiver on his team. I think he's a WR3 unless someone gets hurt.
He out-targeted / touched Fuller in every game they played together.
But regardless, who's actually betting Fuller will play 16 games?
neither of these guys are special IMO.
I dunno about Coutee yet -- he's got 'system-fit' indicators -- but Lockett just posted the most efficient season by any WR in history, according to a long list of metrics and analytics, and by an incredible margin. If that doesn't qualify as 'special', then the word has no meaning.
