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.We've now seen two different gamescripts for the Browns, and they've given us clarity on how the backfield will be handled under Kevin Stefanski. Chubb is the preferred early-down option, especially in positive gamescripts, while Hunt is the preferred pass-catching back who'll get double-digit carries if they run the ball 25-plus times. Through two games, this backfield has averaged 32.0 touches per game. Funny enough, the Vikings running backs averaged 32.5 under Kevin Stefanski last year. Against Washington, we should see them rack up the carries, though there have been warning signs about efficiency in this matchup. Under Ron Rivera, this unit has allowed just 0.56 PPR points per opportunity to running backs, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in football through two weeks. A big part of that is due to them being one of just four teams who've yet to allow a touchdown to running backs. Now, to be fair, they played a Miles Sanders-less Eagles team in Week 1 and then Kyler Murray rushed for two touchdowns in Week 2, so we can't automatically assume they're rock stars that you can't run the ball against. Chubb and Hunt are tied, leading the league with 4.4 yards after contact, so getting to them isn't all you have to do; you still must bring them down. In a game they should be able to run the ball 30-plus times, you have to start these two. Chubb is the preferred option due to the positive gamescript and has double the carries Hunt does inside the five-yard-line, so start him as a low-end RB1. Hunt is still a fine backend RB2 play given the projected gamescript.
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.Hunt was unstoppable last week against Cincinnati and he is now a top-10 option at the RB position for fantasy football through two weeks. He's incredibly valuable in PPR formats and he should remain heavily involved in this matchup. Hunt should be looked at as a solid RB2 this week against Washington.
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.Hunt has been tremendous to start the season and he should be a solid RB2, even against a Washington team that has been the best in the league against fantasy running backs.
