DK Captain Pricing

  • Russell Wilson $16,500
  • Terry McLaurin $15,900
  • Tyler Lockett $15,300
  • Taylor Heinicke $14,700
  • DK Metcalf $13,200

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is coming off a 4-115 performance against the Arizona Cardinals last week.

Lockett is the third most expensive captain on DraftKings ($15,300), priced behind the likes of Russell Wilson ($16,500) and Terry McLaurin ($15,900).

Trusting the Seattle Seahawk offense for fantasy production this year has been a challenging proposition, but Tyler Lockett draws a prime matchup against Washington this week that indicates a spike week. Washington is dead last in completion rate on downfield targets (55.4%) with a league-high eight touchdowns allowed on throws over 15 yards downfield.

Tyler Lockett has been the preferred deep-ball weapon of the Seahawk offense this year, seeing 24 targets on balls thrown over 20 yards, compared to teammate DK Metcalf seeing just 13. Tyler Lockett has also run a pass route on 92.4% of the Seattle dropbacks, which ranks 14th among all wide receivers in the NFL.

Legal online betting sites have given -115 odds to go over 61.5 receiving yards, and +155 odds to score a touchdown on Monday Night Football.

Washington is 29th in touchdown rate (6.1%) allowed to opposing wideouts. A matchup against a porous Football Team secondary makes Tyler Lockett a prime target in both the DFS and prop betting markets.

NFL sportsbooks have given this game a modest total of 47 points, but the Seattle Seahawks are 8-1-1 to the UNDER this season.

If the game is indeed low-scoring, prioritizing the raw point upside in Tyler Lockett will prove to be quite valuable in DFS showdown contests.

With the loose pricing on the DraftKings showdown slate, DFS players should be able to pair Tyler Lockett ($15,300 Captain) with Russell Wilson ($11,000 Flex) in their lineups, and still have salary left over to afford 1-2 higher-priced players.
