[Russell] Wilson pointed to Metcalf's football knowledge when asked what about the rookie wide receiver has stood out most.
"Everybody knows about his ability to run and everything else, and jump and catch and all that," Wilson said. "You guys have been talking about that for months, but I think more than anything else, it's his brain and how he processes information and how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent. He really understands the game really well. He takes coaching really well. He gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything that everybody was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more."
Rookie WRs can be hit or miss for fantasy purposes, but it seems that DK Metcalf is adjusting well to the NFL so far. He's shown speed and swift movement for a player of his size and has impressed the Seahawks staff with his cognitive ability to this point. He could find himself in a battle with David Moore for the WR2 spot behind Tyler Lockett and is currently being drafted in the ninth round as WR47.
Multiple sources say that Sony Michel is progressing quickly since his most recent arthroscopic knee surgery and has been running full tilt. The 2nd year RB has also been spending considerable time at @TB12sports like so many before - and after - have/will.
The Patriots backfield is perpetually a tough one to navigate and this impending season is no different. However, if we look at 2018 Sony Michel led the Patriots RBs in total touches with 216, averaging over five carries a game more than teammate James White. And that was in just 13 games. New England also added rookie Damien Harris to the RB room which clouds things up a bit and could cut into Michel's workload this year. Michel's ADP is currently RB23, with White at RB25 and Harris being drafted as RB41.
Being traded to the Cleveland Browns from the Giants back in March has allowed Beckham to feel liberated from what he called “politics” that kept him from reaching his full potential on and off the field during his time with the team.
"I can’t wait to get going. I just felt with the Giants I was just stuck at a place that wasn’t working for me anymore. I felt like I wasn’t going to be able to reach my full potential there; mentally, physically, spiritually, everything I felt capable of doing, I just couldn’t see it happening there. "
Odell Beckham is in a great spot in Cleveland, catching passes from Baker Mayfield and reunited with fellow LSU Tiger Jarvis Landry. Work environment can certainly affect one's performance and the NFL is no different. OBJ should flourish in his new offense and his ADP reflects this potential in 2019. Depending on format, Beckham is being drafted in the late first to the second round as WR5.
