Pack to the Future
Metcalf enters year two in Seattle with a chance for a true breakout season. He has all the tools to be an elite WR, now it's just about volume. As a rookie, he was already making impact plays but now with a full season under his belt, Metcalf could go off in 2020.Both in reality and fantasy, Cam Akers is one of the most exciting rookies coming into the league. He enters an offense that desperately needs a new face at the RB position and I expect Akers to be that guy. Due to COVID, it may take a few weeks, but Akers should finish the season as the clear RB1 on the Rams and has top-24 fantasy potential as well.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We can't forget that Metcalf had a knee scope just two weeks prior to last season, and that he was considered a "raw receiver" by many who thought he'd take time to develop. During his rookie season, we watched him top 60 yards on nine separate occasions, which was tied for the 10th most among wide receivers. We all know touchdowns will come playing alongside Russell Wilson, too. Metcalf has legitimate WR1 upside if his development continues. After all, we did see him set the rookie record for receiving yards (160) in a playoff game.The Rams were going to draft a running back - we knew that after they interviewed a ton of them in the draft process. What we didn't know was that they'd take one with their first pick in the draft. While Darrell Henderson is a threat to Akers' overall workload, they clearly know what they have in Henderson, and drafted Akers early. It seems like Henderson is going to be the lesser part of the timeshare, while Akers is the early-down back and likely to receive goal-line work. There's a chance Henderson has a bigger role than anticipated, which prevents us from trusting Akers as anything more than a high-end RB3.

 My bet for rookie RB to see most touches - skills to be a featured back (with a little pass game improvement), and team clearly lacks confidence in D. Henderson in that role
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Metcalf had 911 yards from scrimmage and 7 receiving touchdowns in his rookie season. He has some upside entering his second season, but he does play on an offense with many quality targets that tries to establish the run over monster passing numbers.The Rams may have as many as four members in their RBBC, Akers is the early favorite to be the lead back in one of the most intriguing timeshare situations in the NFL.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Akers was a 5-star HS recruit, played behind one of the worst O-Lines in the country at FSU and still put up 1,100 and 8 his freshman year. He can rush, pass, and block, is durable, and was a 2nd round pick by a team that had just spent a 3rd round pick on a RB the year prior. Plus, even in a down year last season, Gurley put up 14 TDs in that offense. Akers is a RB2 with high-end RB1 upside.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Metcalf saw 17 targets in the red zone last season, but only brought in 29% of those for receptions. If that number comes even up to 50% this season, Metcalf is in line for a huge season. He's going to have plenty of scoring opportunities and he should be the focal point of this Seahawks offense. Metcalf has a legitimate chance of finishing as a WR1 this season.This is one of the most puzzling selections to me in the entire draft. While I wasn't a huge Akers fan heading into the draft, I believed he could have value as a pass-catching back or a player that would thrive being moved out into space. Darrell Henderson is still there and could be the 1st/2nd down back, while Akers assumes the 3rd down work. However, this OL is still horrendous and is not going to help these RBs at all. This could be a David Montgomery type selection in year one, where the talent level is there, but the OL just simply can't hold up. Akers is a very risky pick in Dynasty leagues.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
D.K. Metcalf had an alarmingly consistent debut season but his play has plenty of room for improvement. His well known rawness coming out of college didn't seem to slow him down but his route tree was limited and you'd expect more from him in 2020. While the Seahawks offence is irritatingly run-heavy, there's still plenty of room for two 1000-yard receivers when Russell Wilson is at the controls. While the addition of Greg Olsen and the return of Will Dissly are concerning, Metalf has so much upside that he's worth the gamble by the fifth round.Despite being 7th in total yards, the Rams somehow managed to give only 1500 of them to their RBs. While that's less than ideal, there is room for growth. There are rumblings that the Rams want to do more on the ground and with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown proving underwhelming to this point, it's entirely possible that by halfway through the season, this is Cam Akers's backfield. Given the huge TD and fantasy point upside that role has previously held, a return to form for the Rams could make the young rookie a fantasy stud. Be very aware that he'll start the season slowly but he could rumble home with a head of steam if things fall his way.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Metcalf silenced a lot of haters in 2019 while garnering 100 targets and scoring 7 times with 900 yards, but he was actually the least efficient receiver to garner 100 targets. @willson8torCam Akers has the easiest path to a featured role among these rookie RBs in terms of proven competition in their backfield. Akers also happens to be a baller. @Ihartitz
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Lockett didn't reach the 100+ target mark until his fifth year, D.K. received 100 targets his rookie year, just 10 targets behind Lockett, as a rookie. There is room to grow in the efficiency category as well as just growth from another year in the league.
