Seahawks rookie DK Metcalf is a player to monitor going forward. He had four receptions for 89 yards, but in typical Seahawks fashion they don’t seem to know how to use their wide receivers yet.
Certainly though, Russell Wilson is going to targeting the monster of a receiver more in the future. So again, just keep an eye on DK Metcalf for now.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Are you a fantasy team owner who lost their running back to injury in Week 1? The Buccaneers’ Ronald Jones would be a good waiver wire pick up after he went for 75 yards on 13 carries.
While that isn’t a great day, he’s probably available and he’s likely to get better as the Bucs learn Bruce Arians new offense.
Derrick Henry was a stud in Week 1 against the Browns. He put together 159 total yards of offense (84 rushing, 75 receiving) and added two touchdowns. His 75-yard run after a screen pass capped the Titans’ impressive win over the Browns.
Henry displayed that unnatural speed that made him a second round pick. As the Titans push for a playoff run, expect Henry to be the main showpiece of the offense.
The big surprise Sunday was that future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson was a healthy scratch for the Redskins’ season opener against the Eagles. Peterson rushed for over 1,000 yards but second year back Derrius Guice was preferred to start the season.
With Guice out a few weeks due to a knee injury look for Peterson to be the main man in the backfield. Last season he showed he’s still got it, and he’ll be out to prove it to the Redskins organization again this week.
