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.The kneejerk reaction to the Cowboys drafting Lamb was that Gallup would take a big hit. We all got past that and said it was realistic to see Lamb in the Randall Cobb role, with maybe a slight portion of the tight end targets that had vacated. Unfortunately, the initial reaction may have been correct. Gallup has 10 targets through two games while Lamb has 15 of them. There was just one stretch of two games where Gallup had 10 targets last year, so we're officially worried. He's typically at LWR, which means he'll see the most of Quinton Dunbar, the Seahawks big acquisition at cornerback. The Seahawks as a whole have struggled to stop wide receivers, but Dunbar has been at least competent. If the last two years are a sign of anything, he's the most talented cornerback on the team. Again, this team has allowed 67.5 PPR points per game to wide receivers, so there's production to be had, but Gallup is at the stage where he almost needs to prove it before he can be trusted as a top-30 wide receiver. He's just a borderline WR3/4 option despite the plus matchup, though the bright side is that the Seahawks have allowed six top-36 wide receivers through two games.
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.Gallup hasn't exactly hit the way that many fantasy managers were hoping for so far this year, but he's still involved in one of the league's most dynamic offenses. Gallup can be viewed as a WR3 moving forward that always has upside to find the end zone or reel in a big catch deep downfield.
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.This is my last week trusting Gallup as a WR3 based on matchup. Gallup has only 10 targets, 5 receptions, 108 yards, and no touchdowns in two games this year. The Seahawks are 32nd against fantasy wide receivers, so I'll give him the nod in this matchup. That said, Gallup needs to show the Cowboys offense can support 3 elite fantasy receivers this week.
