WR - SEA
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.
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 Denver
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).
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.
Can't trust any SEA Weapons right now til I know more about the QB situation
