Lineups
Tyler Lockett benefitted from an on-fire Russell Wilson in Week 1 as his favorite receiver finished with 8 catches on 8 targets for 92 yards. New England will offer much more of a challenge for this passing offense than Atlanta did, though, as the Patriots boast a handful of elite cover corners. I'm expecting this game to be played at a slower pace and for the Seahawks to run the ball much more than last week. Lockett is a safe WR2 given his target share from Russell Wilson, but his upside is capped in this matchup.D.K. Metcalf was excellent in Week 1 as he finished with 4 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown, but you have to wonder how much of that was just how horrible the Atlanta pass defense is. New England will offer much more of a challenge for this passing offense than Atlanta did, though, as the Patriots boast a handful of elite cover corners. I'm expecting this game to be played at a slower pace and for the Seahawks to run the ball much more than last week. Metcalf is still a decent WR2 option given his role in the offense and red zone production, but I don't see him producing the same stats as Week 1.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
What an efficient performance by Lockett last week, as he caught all eight of his targets for 92 yards. Even better? D.K. Metcalf continues to improve, meaning Lockett could reap the benefits of Metcalf getting top-tier coverage. Lockett should see a lot of Jonathan Jones, a veteran cornerback who's been a solid cornerback through the years, though not great. Even going back to last year when the Patriots were the shutdown defense, Jones allowed a 110.8 QB Rating in his coverage. He allowed 13.0 yards per reception and a touchdown every 15.2 targets. Six of the top-seven performances the Patriots allowed to wide receivers last year were slot-heavy receivers. Lockett played 68.4 percent of his snaps from the slot in Week 1. You should trust him as a solid WR2 this week.The connection between Metcalf and Wilson continues to grow, though Metcalf did have an ugly drop in Week 1. The matchup with the Falcons cornerbacks was a cakewalk compared to what he'll face this week, as it's expected that Stephon Gilmore shadows him. That's obviously a tough matchup, though it's worth noting that Gilmore did allow 4-of-4 passing for 37 yards to DeVante Parker before he left with a hamstring injury. But going back to the start of last year, Gilmore has allowed exactly one touchdown on 104 targets in coverage, which is just bananas considering he covers the opposing WR1 every week. The reason you have to love Metcalf in fantasy is due to the fact that he's seeing six-plus targets per game from what may be the most efficient passer in the league. Even if he starts with two catches for 30 yards, there could be an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter that changes his fortune. Yes, that can happen with anyone, but combining volume with Wilson, and a big-play wide receiver is a must-play nearly every week. Because of that, Metcalf should remain in lineups as a risk/reward WR3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Lockett had 92 yards in the opener, he is probably the better Seahawks receiver this week, because Metcalf will probably see more of Stephon Gilmore than Lockett.Metcalf had 95 yards receiving and a touchdown, but he has a tough matchup against the Patriots secondary. He is a low-end WR2 in a tough matchup against Stephon Gilmore.
