John Metchie III
WR - HOU
Week 3 Outlook
In a game where the Houston Texans were outpaced by the Indianapolis Colts 31-20, rookie wide receiver John Metchie III made his NFL debut with a single reception for 17 yards.
Despite being targeted only once in his NFL debut, Metchie managed to turn it into a solid gain in the fourth quarter, showcasing his potential for big plays. However, his limited involvement in the Texans' offense resulted in a lowly WR87 ranking for the week. Fantasy managers will be hoping for an uptick in targets as the Texans face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars next week. For now, Metchie remains a speculative add in deeper leagues, with his value hinging on increased usage in the Texans' passing game.
Texans WR John Metchie III is officially active for a Week 2 matchup against the Colts.
Metchie is set to make his NFL debut after missing his rookie season due to a battle with cancer and Week 1 of this season with a hamstring injury. The Texans are dealing with a few injuries to their offensive line, so rookie QB C.J. Stroud could look to get the ball to Metchie in the short passing game to build chemistry early on. Fantasy managers should likely wait and see the amount of targets Metchie commands before entering him into their lineups.
Texans WR John Metchie III has been removed off the injury report and is set to make his NFL debut in Week 2.
Metchie returned to practice Wednesday after missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury. Fantasy managers should expect Metchie to gradually be worked into the offense as he looks to build chemistry with rookie QB C.J. Stroud.
John Metchie III (hamstring) returned to Texans' practice Wednesday.
After a battle with cancer held him out his entire rookie season, Metchie was unfortunately out of action in Week 1 due to a hamstring issue. The second-round pick from 2022 was back on the practice field Wednesday, however, as he appears to hopefully be gearing up for his NFL debut in Week 2. Should Metchie take the field this Sunday, he could be in for significant action, as fellow Houston wide receiver Noah Brown landed on IR this week.
John Metchie III (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
A hamstring injury will leave Metchie sidelined for Houston's season opener on Sunday. He didn't practice all week because of it, and it looks like it will still be an issue next week. Robert Woods and rookie Tank Dell are both primed to be key beneficiaries of Metchie's absence against the Ravens.
