Gerald Everett (TE - SEA)
17h
Player Note on Gerald Everett (TE - SEA)
Everett was able to showcase his talent and play-making ability on a big catch last week against the Steelers, but he ended up with only three receptions. With Will Dissly still involved, there's no upside for Everett in this Seattle offense that's currently being led by Geno Smith. He's a low-end TE2 this week at best.
Adam Trautman (TE - NO)
17h
Player Note on Adam Trautman (TE - NO)
Trautman has the talent to be a factor for fantasy football, but the volume and pace of play from this Saints offense is holding him back. He can be viewed as a low-end TE2 this week at best.
Tyler Lockett (WR - SEA)
17h
Player Note on Tyler Lockett (WR - SEA)
Apparently Lockett's fantasy outlook completely depends on Russell Wilson, huh? Without Wilson pushing the ball deep downfield to Lockett, the veteran receiver wasn't able to do much in week six in a plus matchup against the Steelers. Lockett had just two receptions for 35 yards on seven targets and he now has a much tougher battle this week against the Saints secondary. Until we see Wilson come back into the lineup, it's probably best to view Lockett as nothing more than a low-upside WR3.
D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
17h
Player Note on D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
Despite Smith struggling to push the ball deep downfield, Metcalf was able to at least provide a solid floor for fantasy managers in week six with a 6-58-0 stat line. All upside for Metcalf has been virtually erased without Russell Wilson in the lineup, but he should still dominate targets as the WR1 in this offense. This is a tougher matchup against the Saints defense that's allowing just 22.6 fantasy points per game on average to opposing WRs, but there should be enough volume there for us to view Metcalf as a safe WR2.
Marquez Callaway (WR - NO)
17h
Player Note on Marquez Callaway (WR - NO)
Callaway has started to emerge as a viable option in this Saints offense over the previous couple of weeks, but there's still very little predictability with this team as far as where the majority of the targets are going to go. In a fantastic matchup on paper, we could see Callaway explode for a monstrous performance or we could see Winston pepper other receiving weapons on this team with targets and Callaway's left with a lackluster fantasy outing. He has a wide range of outcomes this week and he needs to be viewed as a low-end FLEX play accordingly.
Rashaad Penny (RB - SEA)

Player Note on Rashaad Penny (RB - SEA)
Penny is set to return to the active lineup this week, but it's unclear right now whether or not he'll be receiving the majority of the work in this backfield. For the time being, there's very little to analyze, so we'll need to wait until more information becomes available about Collins' injury status and then we'll update as able.
Alex Collins (RB - SEA)
17h
Player Note on Alex Collins (RB - SEA)
At the time of writing, it's unclear whether or not Collins is going to be able to suit up for this matchup as he's dealing with reported hip/glute injuries. We'll continue to monitor the situation and update as more information becomes available.
Alvin Kamara (RB - NO)
17h
Player Note on Alvin Kamara (RB - NO)
It's certainly been an interesting year for Kamara. He's had games where he's been used similarly to Derrick Henry with a massive workload on the ground and then other games we've seen the usage from him that we've become familiar with in previous seasons. Either way, we know that he's going to be given plenty of work each and every week and that's all we should care about as fantasy managers. With his skill set and talent, he has the ability to translate that volume into top-5 fantasy production every single week. In a matchup against the Seahawks defense that's allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this year, AK's a top-tier option.
Geno Smith (QB - SEA)
17h
Player Note on Geno Smith (QB - SEA)
Well, we saw the Seahawks alter their game plan without Wilson in the lineup and Smith wasn't asked to push the ball deep downfield very much. Smith had an ADOT of just 4.1 in week six and he barely crossed over 200 passing yards as a result. In a matchup this week against the solid Saints defense, Smith's not worth viewing as anything more than a high-end QB3.
Jameis Winston (QB - NO)
17h
Player Note on Jameis Winston (QB - NO)
Winston has surprisingly been one of the league's more efficient QBs over the course of this season and he would normally be in consideration as a low-end QB1 with his touchdown totals if we saw his yardage totals be higher than what they are. Through five games, Winston is averaging just 178.4 passing yards per contest, which isn't enough to push him into the weekly top-15 conversation. Additionally, there's always the potential that Taysom Hill could come onto the field at any given moment to make a big play and take away the upside that Winston possesses. The matchup is a fantastic one for opposing QBs against Seattle, but it's an extremely risky play to start Winston this week as a streaming option. It could pay off in a big way or it could blow up in our faces.
