If the Seahawks want to get the ball to Metcalf, they can. He continually made Patrick Peterson look slow (he's not) on Thursday night, and you're starting to see him become a much better route runner than he was in his rookie season. He's now averaging a massive 2.42 PPR points per target this season, which ranks second among 72 wide receivers who've seen 40-plus targets. The downside of this matchup is that there have been just seven wide receivers who've finished with 11.2 or more PPR points against the Eagles this year, which is the number it took to finish as a top-36 wide receiver last year. There's no other team in the league who's allowed fewer than nine of those performances. However, do you remember that big breakout performance that Chase Claypool had where he scored three touchdowns? Yeah, that was against the Eagles. He's big, strong, and fast, but he's behind Metcalf in all those categories. They're likely going to shadow Metcalf with Darius Slay, who's been one of the better cornerbacks in the league over the last few years, though he's not a complete shutdown cornerback. He does have 4.36-second speed, so it's unlikely that Metcalf will simply run right by him, but don't forget Patrick Peterson had 4.34-speed. Slay is likely to cap Metcalf's ceiling in this game, but let's not pretend you're even debating sitting him. He's one of the few players who can go from bust to stud in one play, and you'd bet on that happening because of who his quarterback is.

D.K. Metcalf reels in another TD in Week 11 win

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf had three receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 11 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Metcalf caught a 25-yard beauty from Russell Wilson to start the game but did little else the rest of the night. He had two additional scoring opportunities, but one went off his helmet in the back of the endzone and the other just came off his fingertips while in the redzone. Still, it was a productive game for one of the best wideouts in the game. Through 10 games, Metcalf has 47 receptions for 862 yards and 9 TDs this season. He'll face the Eagles on Monday night in Week 12.
