Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
The Seahawks' offensive struggles in their last two games have limited Metcalf to 7-57-0 on 16 targets over that stretch. He's too good to be held down for long, and maybe the Washington Football Team will be his slump buster on Monday night. Washington is giving up a league-high 27.8 fantasy points per game to wide receivers, although Metcalf won't have a particularly easy individual matchup against Washington CB Kendall Fuller. Metcalf checks in at WR8 this week. He's a solid value at $6,500 on DraftKings. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 In a shootout performance last week with Green Bay, Thielen saw his target share jump up to 29.4% and he was able to turn that into eight receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown. We certainly haven't seen the same level of touchdown production from Thielen as we did last year, but he's still worth playing every single week due to his involvement around the red zone. Thielen ranks tied for third with several other players for the most touchdowns on receptions within the opponent's 20-yard line, which makes him a worthwhile investment every single week as a mid-range/low-end WR2. He might give a lower floor if he doesn't find the end zone, but his potential to bring one in for six continuously keeps him in the conversation. He can be viewed as a mid-range WR2 for Week 12.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Wetcalf has only 9 fantasy points over the last 3 weeks, he is more of a boom / bust WR3 on a team that cannot figure out how to move the ball on offense.Thielen had 19 fantasy points as the offense was able to support both him and Jefferson in Week 11. He is more of a WR2 against a 49ers D that is 10th against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks.
