Tyler Lockett A Flex Option In Week 4

Saturday, September 30, 4:12 AM

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver came back to earth in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers, catching three of his seven targets for 34 yards after scoring twice in his previous game. Fantasy managers will hope Lockett can rebound in Week 4 against the New York Giants, who have surrendered three touchdowns to wide receivers in their last two games. The Giants' defense has been softer against the run so far in 2023, though, and if the Seahawks jump out to an early lead their pass game will likely take a back seat to Kenneth Walker III and Zach Charbonnet. Still, Lockett owns a whopping 36.39% share of his team's air yards and rookie Jaxon Smith-Njigba has not posed a threat to the veteran's workload, so he should still be heavily involved on Monday. Lockett can be treated as a flex option in Week 4.

DeVonta Smith Looks To Bounce Back Against Commanders

Friday, September 29, 8:31 PM

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith will take on the division-rival Washington Commanders in Week 4 on Sunday. While the 24-year-old missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, he was a full participant on Friday and is not listed on the team's final injury report. Last week against Tampa Bay, Smith came back to earth after scoring in each of the season's first two games. The former Heisman winner took a backseat to A.J. Brown, who got the squeaky wheel treatment after being visibly frustrated about his involvement during Week 2. This matchup against the Commanders is excellent for fantasy wide receivers, setting Smith up for a bounce-back performance. Washington allows the seventh-most fantasy points per game to the position and was eaten alive by Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis last week. Consider Smith a high-end WR2 in Week 4.
