Tyler Lockett photo 34. Tyler Lockett WR - (vs . NO)
Lockett had his first 10-catch game last week and should be asked to play a big role against the Saints this week. As long as Teddy can keep New Orleans scoring points, Lockett and the Seattle passing game should be in for a good day.

D.K. Metcalf photo 66. D.K. Metcalf WR - (vs . NO)
A crazy stat I found when going through NFL's NextGenStats was that Metcalf has seen 52.8 percent of the Seahawks air yards. That's incredible. By comparison, there were just two receivers who topped 38 percent of their team's air yards in 2018. Those receivers were Julio Jones (45 percent) and Deandre Hopkins (44 percent). Extending that to the top-five, you'd add Tyreek Hill, Kenny Golladay, and Antonio Brown to that list. It's a very telling stat and one that makes me think Metcalf could be massive this year. He's going to have his hands full in this matchup, however. The Saints are surely going to stick Marshon Lattimore on him, a physical cornerback who plays tight man coverage. His numbers this year don't look particularly great considering he's covered Hopkins and Brandin Cooks over the first two weeks, but he's someone who allowed just two touchdowns on 164 targets in coverage the previous two years. Because of the matchup, Metcalf isn't a recommended start, though he's a player who can hit value on one play. Consider him a boom-or-bust WR4/5 option for this game, though the future looks bright.

Will Dissly woke up last week, looking like the player we briefly saw last season when he was healthy. He seems to be a big part of this offense when they have to pass, but when they are in full control of the game, we know Seattle doubles down on the run, limiting his upside.
