Can't trust any SEA Weapons right now til I know more about the QB situation6/22 - Among the most undervalued 4th round picks you can make
Justin Lampkin
Clock Management Fantasy Football
unfortunately DK will be playing for the Russell-less Seattle Seahawks. Although he is extremely talented WR, I expect Seattle to run the ball at a very high rate and the QB play to be lackluster at best. This will be DK's worst season and likely a player I avoid in drafts.Dionae was sixth in targets last season with a low catch percentage for that group of WR's I would expect an increase there, though this offense could limit his touch down opportunity. He may dip even lower than the 10 targets he had inside the 10 yard line last season.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Caught 4 TD passes in 3+ games with Geno Smith at QB in 2021, so there is at least some hope that all is not lost for Metcalf with Russell Wilson now in DenverHeavy target volume has been, and should continue to be, a constant, but durability concerns are likely to also remain a constant
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
D.K. Metcalf played last season with Geno Smith and a watered-down version of Russell Wilson under center and still managed to finish as WR20. While the pairing of Smith and Drew Lock might hamper his ceiling, Metcalf's floor is as a low-end WR2. Metcalf's volume and efficiency should still lend to spike weeks regardless of the quarterback. Last season he was eighth in target share (27.3%), 24th in targets per snap, and 20th in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets, per PFF). 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
The difference between having Geno Smith/Drew Lock at quarterback versus Russell Wilson cannot be overstated enough. It's a horrible situation to be in and puts D.K. Metcalf in a tough spot. Although the alpha wideout did rise to occasion under a small sample size last season, averaging 14.9 fantasy points per game (15th - same as his final season-long standing) without Wilson at quarterback for three games. But I am suspect that removing their quarterback that led the NFL in yards per attempt (10.4), passer rating (133.6) and passer rating from a clean pocket (130.9) before his finger injury is going to create a much larger impact over a 17-game sample size.The ADP market believes that Mitchell Trubisky or Kenny Pickett can take the Steelers to the fantasy promised land. I am not as optimistic. The best-case scenario for the Steelers' No. 1 wide receiver is seeing a boatload of targets - albeit inefficient like last season when he ranked second in that category - to deliver for fantasy. Whether it's Trubisky or the rookie under center, that is the reality with DJ. Let's not forget that last year's heavily-coveted rookie quarterback class produced almost zero reliable options outside of Brandin Cooks (WR20), Jakobi Meyers (WR33) and Kendrick Bourne (WR30). So with a top-15 early best ball ADP in an offense with more competition for targets between Chase Claypool, Pat Freiermuth, George Pickens and Calvin Austin III, I would need Johnson to fall significantly in drafts before selecting him.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Johnson had a very good year with 1,163 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns considering that his passing offense was one of the worst in the league. Mitchell Trubisky and Kenny Pickett are no stellar quarterbacks, but they offer a chance for Johnson to have a WR1 role if one of them plays up to his potential.
