3.) DK Metcalf vs. Ravens

In arguably the most anticipated 1PM game to watch this Sunday between the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens, it is tough to figure out who could come out on top. While the Ravens have been the better team overall and are arguably the best team going into this week, the Seahawks present themselves as a team that you don’t know what to expect from them.

Seattle is coming off a 24-20 victory over the Cleveland Browns in which wideout DK Metcalf recorded 5 catches for 67 yards. On the season, Metcalf has only two receiving touchdowns and one game over 100 yards receiving. 

The Ravens have one of the best defenses in the league, only allowing over 200 passing yards in three games this season (only one game above 250 yards). The Ravens are a physical defense whether it is upfront in the trenches or outside the numbers going up against opposing receivers.

Metcalf has not had the most productive week since Week 3 and it is hard to imagine that he will go above expectations this week. If you have Metcalf in your lineup, this should almost be a no-brainer to put him on the bench this week.
