Lockett was healthy for only a very small part of 2016 and still produced two 20+ point games. He can easily increase that total if he stays off of the injury report. Lockett's ADP means that he's in that range where he doesn't hurt your team if he is limited for much of the season again, but he can lift your fortunes at a small cost if he makes the next step in 2017.

Summary

The hot, young fantasy wide receiver that was a favorite bet to emerge as a reliable starter in 2016, Lockett only had three games with at least 70 yards and didn't reach the end zone until Week 15. To make matters worse, Lockett broke two bones in his leg at the end of the year. Although we're hearing the typical reports that Lockett is "ahead of schedule" and he could be ready for training camp, we hear this optimism routinely about injured players only to learn that they won't be ready for practice until the season begins. If Lockett's summer reality matches the spring optimism, he'll have every opportunity to build on his rookie year with the healthier offensive talent that is built to generate vertical passes with the play-action game. Even if Lockett returns to healthy sooner than later, he'll have to contend with former second-round pick Paul Richardson, who made multiple highlight-reel plays for the Seahawks against Detroit and Atlanta in the playoffs. Richardson had the upper hand to begin the preseason, but Lockett could earn the No. 2 role while Richardson heals from a sprained ACL joint. Consider Lockett a high-upside, boom-bust option near the midpoint of drafts this spring. (August 14)

Seahawks | Tyler Lockett back at practice (Fri Aug 4, 01:40 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was spotted with a helmet on and was fielding punts in practice Friday, Aug. 4, after beginning camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Our View: Lockett appears to be on track to be healthy for Week 1. He's going in the second half of drafts despite having a lot of buzz at this time last year. He'll be a boom/bust weekly play but, he showed last year that the boom can be big enough to put you over the top as a flex play.
