Sleeper Pick of the Week

  • DK Metcalf @ Steelers

Russell Wilson only targeted two receivers when passing last Sunday against the Bengals, DK Metcalf (6) and Tyler Lockett (2). Although they are poised to be a run heavy offense this season, Russell is not afraid to throw it when he needs to. Metcalf should be able to lead this team in targets on a weekly basis going forward this year. He is facing a questionable Steelers secondary that should provide opportunity for him to have a good fantasy performance.
