3.) DK Metcalf vs. San Francisco 49ers

In three of his last four games, Metcalf has been able to produce double digit points in fantasy, one game over 20 points and one over 30 points. In the barnburner against the Cowboys, Metcalf recorded 6 catches for 134 yards and 3 touchdowns, which was a bounce back week for him the week prior against the 49ers (3 catches for 32 yards off of 9 targets). Even though the 49ers decimated the Eagles in Philadelphia last week, they still allowed A.J. Brown to post a 100+ receiving yard game off of 8 catches. 

In Seattle’s last meeting against the 49ers, they lost 31-13 and Metcalf was no help. However, if the Eagles are able to get Brown going against this 49ers defense, why can’t Metcalf be a great option this week as well? Especially coming off a three touchdown performance and heading into a divisional matchup, Metcalf is a must-start option this week.

2.) Zay Flowers vs. Los Angeles Rams

The rookie wide receiver finally had himself a breakout game in fantasy, posting his first game of 20+ points two weeks ago against the Los Angeles Chargers (he was on a bye week last week). He had five receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown, while also adding on a 37 yard touchdown run. In two of his last three games, Flowers has five catches. However, he is still looking for his first 100+ receiving yard game this season. 

Even though the Rams have been above average this season and are coming off an impressive win against the Cleveland Browns, the Ravens are too powerful as a team to doubt and with Mark Andrews out with a leg injury, look for Flowers to keep getting targets including this week against the Rams.
