Prior to the start of the season, I said that there's a chance we see Metcalf truly breakout as a top-10 receiver. Through two weeks, he's flashed some of the reason we loved him and currently sits as the WR7. Not only is he averaging seven targets, but they're coming from Russell Wilson, and he has one-play upside. Despite being matched up with Stephon Gilmore last week, he managed to walk away with four catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. He's matchup-proof until further notice. The Cowboys have not been a matchup to avoid, either. Through two games, they're allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per target to wide receivers. The Cowboys cornerbacks play sides, and they flip-flopped from Week 1 to Week 2, and it seemed to screw something up with Chidobe Awuzie, because he allowed two touchdowns in his coverage. He allowed just three touchdowns all of last season... on 90 targets. He also suffered an apparent hamstring injury in that game and may not play this week. The other cornerback is rookie Trevon Diggs, who has allowed 7-of-11 passing for 123 yards through two games. In a game they're projected for 30 points, there's little reason to fade Metcalf, who should be considered a low-end WR1/WR2 at the very least.

D.K. Metcalf goes for a team-high 110 receiving yards and a TD in Week 3

D.K. Metcalf caught 4-of-8 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown in a 38-31 win over the Cowboys in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact

Metcalf could have had two touchdowns in this game had it not been for a fumble lost out of the back of the end zone as he was about to cross the line for a score. Through the first three games, Metcalf is now averaging 99 yards and one touchdown per game. He and Tyler Lockett are on track to become the most productive wide receiver tandem in the NFL with the way Russell Wilson is playing. The Seahawks travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins in Week 4.
