FantasyPros
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.After what was a brutal start to the game for Brown where he clearly dropped multiple passes, he made up for it by fighting for what was one of the more impressive touchdowns this season. He saw seven targets in that game, now making in 7-of-8 games with seven-plus targets, though he's still yet to see double-digits. The only game he didn't hit that number was against his Week 12 opponent, the Colts. After catching a pass for 21 yards on the first drive, Brown didn't record a single catch for the remainder of the game. He did drop what would've been a 70-plus-yard touchdown, though. Oddly enough, that's the only game he hasn't scored in since returning to the lineup in Week 5. The Colts have allowed just nine wide receiver touchdowns this season, which is tied for the ninth-fewest in the league. They've seen just 18.3 wide receiver targets per game, which is the fourth-fewest, and the reason why we've only seen two top-10 performances against them all season. They have allowed a decent floor considering the lack of targets available, as 15 different wide receivers have finished as top-36 options. While I wouldn't put him in the WR1 conversation this week, I would put him into lineups as a back-end WR2 who should bounce back in their second meeting.

FantasyPros
The Eagles are 12th against fantasy wide receivers, but Metcalf should still be an elite WR1 playing with Russell Wilson.Brown only had 1 reception for 21 yards on 4 targets the last time these teams met. It seems unlikely Brown is shutdown like that again, but he is a boom / bust WR2 against a tough Colts D.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Things weren't looking good for AJ Brown there for a while in last week's contest. He had a few uncharacteristic drops, but he absolutely made up for it with his monstrous TD catch. Brown was shut down the last time they played the Colts, but he's too talented to sit on your bench. Brown should be viewed as a mid-range WR2 this week due to the matchup.
