Fantasy Football Player Notes
2021 PPR Rest of Season Rankings
It doesn't quite make sense, but Lockett is severely out-producing DK Metcalf as of late. In five of Lockett's past six games he has either scored a touchdown or posted 96+ receiving yards. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks' offense has been struggling, but Lockett continues to produce. He has been extremely volatile in the past, but it will be impossible to sit him during the fantasy playoffs barring injury.
Frustratingly, Metcalf has topped 26 receiving yards just once over his past four games. It came in Week 13 when he hauled in five passes for 60 scoreless yards. This was considered a borderline spike game for the third-year receiver. That's where we're at with Metcalf and the Seattle offense these days. His talent isn't in question, but the scheme/environment are killing his box score production. Metcalf is a bet-on-talent WR2 down the stretch. That might be painting a rosy picture as well.
