Bit of an off day for Russ opens up the MVP race again. Do they do weekly odds on that?

Got off my regular sleep schedule so I woke up to see the 2nd half. FF game on the line, he had DK and Kyler going. If that Metcalf play stands I would have lost. :thumbright:

Looking like this is a 1a, 1b situation with Lockett and Metcalf.

In the short term, I'd probably prefer Lockett.

Does anyone know why Hicks left the game? Can’t find anything online about it.

Last night was Metcalf's first game below 90 yards and has received 8 or more targets in 4 of 6 games.

They're #8 (Lockett) and #10 (Metcalf) in receiving yardage on the season, and were #8 (Metcalf) and #27 (Lockett) before week 7. That includes a week 6 bye, and none of the receivers ahead of Metcalf had a bye week yet, though Ridley did have a week 4 with zero catches.
They're #2 (Lockett) and #13 (Metcalf) in WR points per game (PPR) on the season, and were #5 (Metcalf) and #13 (Lockett) before week 7.

In the short and long term, I'd prefer Metcalf, and in the short and long term I'd feel just fine about having both in my lineup.

A lot of the disparity came from DK scoring a TD in every game -- he's a weapon, but we all know that TDs are sporadic.

Both of them are going to have games where defensive coverage, gamescript etc will make them have a down week; but Lockett seems to have more reception potential.

Agree with your overall point. I've got a lot of DK and Lockett; Lockett has been a favorite of mine for years and was huge on DK, Sutton, AJB, Diontae this year, Ya obviously want both of them.

DK hadn't scored in every game, for the record.

Before last night when Lockett had 20(!!!) targets, he had 39 targets to DK's 38. In looking closer, I'd like to agree with you that they are 1a/b. :lol:

The reason metcAlf struggled was cuz Peterson was on him all game.

But that was a hell of a td saving run and tackle.

Peterson achilles heel has been undersized shifty receivers, he’s an all-pro but he matches up much better vs Metcalf than Lockett so I dont factor in his shadow coverage as an indicator that Metcalf is defenses #1 (perhaps thatll be proven in the future).
