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.

D.K. Metcalf draws nine targets in Week 7

D.K. Metcalf caught 4-of-9 targets for 53 yards in Seattle's 30-16 Week 7 loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

The nine targets were the most he has seen this season, and were two more than Tyler Lockett had in this one. However, the bad news is Metcalf lost a fumble in the fourth quarter. He remains a boom-bust FLEX option for fantasy purposes. The entire Seattle offense has a great matchup in Week 8 against the Falcons.
