Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.There's some pros and cons to Green moving forward. The pros are that he's seen a team-high 22 targets through two weeks and Burrow looks like he's going to be a good one. The cons are that Green has turned those 22 targets into just 80 scoreless yards and hasn't looked like the player he once was. His 3.6 yards per target is the 31st worst mark of all-time from wide receivers who've seen 20-plus targets. It seems every time he gets up off the ground, it's a struggle. He might be working back into game-shape after having 2019 off, which must be the hope. Until we see his efficiency rise, we have to treat him as a risky start in fantasy. Still, his ridiculous 330 air yards through two weeks leads the NFL by a full 34 percent. Take this from someone who loved Green before the season began: I have zero clue what to do. Fortunately, his matchup doesn't entice you to start him this week, as he's likely getting Darius Slay in coverage, one of the top cornerbacks in the game. Slay did move around the formation in Week 1, but then stayed firmly planted at LCB in Week 2, so it's possible we don't have a shadow situation, but I'd expect it. Slay hasn't allowed anything higher than a 97.4 QB Rating in his coverage over each of the last six seasons. Green should be considered a risky WR3 who needs to remind us of the player we once knew. If he does, the volume has been better than ever.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Metcalf has top-10 upside in this matchup. The Cowboys are struggling to stop opposing WRs, as mentioned above, and Metcalf always has a chance of reeling in a perfectly thrown deep ball from Wilson to make his fantasy day. Both Seattle WRs should be viewed as top options this week.People are going to be scared off of AJ Green if they just see the boxscore stats, but we should be focused in on his opportunity. 13 targets is hard to come by for any receiver and it's encouraging to see that Burrow is continuously looking his way. With that being said, this isn't the greatest matchup for Green from a fantasy perspective. The Eagles are currently ranked 24th in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers, which means that it's a tough matchup, and Darius Slay is a big reason for that. Slay is expected to cover Green in this matchup, which means that Green can be viewed as nothing more than a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Metcalf looks like the real deal, especially with Russell Wilson playing out of his mind right now. He is a WR1 against the Cowboys, especially with them being 26th against fantasy wide receivers early in the season.
