Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 Rankings
Chris Carson photo 4. Chris Carson RB - (vs . BAL)
Carson has hit his groove, running for over 100 yards three games in a row. Losing Dissly hurts from a run blocking perspective, as well as hurting the offense overall, but Carson should still be a RB1 at home this week against a lackluster Ravens defense.

D.K. Metcalf photo 65. D.K. Metcalf WR - (vs . BAL)
After seeing at least six targets in each of the first three games, Metcalf has seen just 4-3-5 over the last three games, though it's important to note he's had just one game this year where he's finished less than 67 yards and/or a touchdown. As odd as it sounds, he still leads the team in air yards over Lockett, though that gap has shrunk to the point it's almost non-existent. With Will Dissly out for the year, Metcalf may take on a bigger role in the end zone as the biggest target on the team. If Marlon Humphrey shadows Lockett, like many expect, Metcalf would see a lot of newly acquired Marcus Peters or Brandon Carr in coverage. Carr is an established veteran who's solid in coverage, though he doesn't have the speed to keep up with Metcalf over the top. Peters has been repeatedly burned over the top this year and doesn't do well in shadow coverage. The Seahawks should be able to get the matchups they want with Metcalf if Lockett gets shadowed, so consider him a high-end WR4 who could lead the team in receiving.

Brown grabbed a couple touchdowns for Russell Wilson last week and could be seeing more targets with Dissly down now. Brown could be worth a speculative add, but he probably should not be started this week.

C.J. Prosise photo 161. C.J. Prosise RB - (vs . BAL)
Prosise only sees some attention with Penny out. If Penny is inactive, Prosise is only a desperation flex play in a deep league, but the is a chance he see a couple more targets with Dissly now out.

Luke Willson photo 168. Luke Willson TE - (vs . BAL)
With Will Dissly out, it opens the door for Willson to find fantasy relevance. Still, he wasn't relevant as the starter with Seattle before. Keep him on your radar, but there likely is a better option for you.

Rashaad Penny photo 179. Rashaad Penny RB - (vs . BAL)
Penny is dealing with a hamstring issue, so monitor his status. He seemed close to playing last week, but even if he is active against the Ravens, it's best to wait and see with Penny.
