Week 1 Rankings

DK Metcalf Note

We love Geno Smith this week, therefore we love his WRs. Metcalf was Seattle's target share leader in 2022, and I'd expect nothing less from him in his first matchup versus a sans-Jalen Ramsey defense. Metcalf has an easy chance to hit paydirt in this particular matchup after leading all players in end-zone targets a season ago. The Rams were at their best in 2022 inside the red zone, allowing the league's lowest conversion rate. Expect that number to dip dramatically in favor of the Seattle passing game. Start Metcalf as a back-end fantasy WR1 in Week 1.

Arguably the league's most underrated WR...Tyler Lockett is in a great position for drafters looking for a start in Week 1. The long-time Seahawks WR has traditionally destroyed the Rams, and last year was no different. Two of Lockett's best games in 2022 were versus LA, highlighted by a season-high 128 receiving yards game on nine catches back in Week 13.

As we get closer to Week 1, we should know more about JSN's injury and availability. But after suffering a wrist injury in the preseason, Pete Carroll has been curiously optimistic about JSN's status saying he will play in Week 1. It's shocking given the intial diagnosis of 1-2 weeks missed, but you can really never rely on Petey Sunshine for accurate injury information. View JSN as a boom-or-bust WR3, that I am okay with starting if you drafted him as a starter before his ADP dipped out of starter range due to the injury scare.
