D.K. Metcalf Week-To-Week After Surgery

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf's knee surgery showed minimal injury, and he's listed as week-to-week as the regular season approaches. Metcalf could miss a game or two to begin the regular season, which drops his fantasy value some, but when healthy he's expected to be a starter across from Tyler Lockett and has considerable upside in his first season. The hype is real and his size and athleticism are off the charts, but be careful not to overvalue him in fantasy drafts. The lost time this preseason could easily cause him to start out slow in his rookie year. RotoBaller has Metcalf ranked as the No. 64 fantasy wideout. Take a chance on him in the later rounds.

Chris Lacy Making Strong Case For Roster Spot

Detroit Lions wide receiver Chris Lacy has moved up the Lions depth chart and falls below only wide receivers Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Danny Amendola. In addition, Amendola is still out (undisclosed) and there is little news on whether or not he will be back for the start of the regular season. If Lacy locks down the fourth receiver spot but all three receiver above him are healthy, he has little to no fantasy value. However, if one or more of those receivers doesn't play a certain week, Lacy could become interesting.

Vance McDonald Won't Play Full Games

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald has never played a full season in his six-year career, and the team doesn't plan on using him extensively in order to keep him healthy. McDonald played a career-high 564 snaps last year and split time evenly with Jesse James, who is now with the Lions. "He still won't," offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said of McDonald's playing time increasing substantially this season. "He's never going to play the full game. That's never going to happen." That means that the Steelers plan to use Xavier Grimble quite a bit as the No. 2 tight end. While McDonald is still worth an investment as a low-end TE1, his production could be spotty and inconsistent.
