The Seattle Seahawks wide receivers didn’t have the best of games last weekend, but fantasy owners will need a step up in production in the fantasy playoffs. If you’re a fantasy owner of Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf or David Moore, here’s what you can expect from the Seattle wideouts.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks WRs Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, David Moore

In Seattle’s last time out, Russell Wilson had season lows in completions, attempts and yards in a 20-15 win over the Washington Football Team so the wide receivers didn’t have the best of fantasy days. Metcalf led the Seahawks receivers catching five of six targets for 43 yards, and Lockett caught four of seven targets that went his way for 34 yards. Moore was targeted four times, and he caught two balls for 10 yards.

The Seahawks will take on the Los Angeles Rams, which rank No. 1 in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In the Rams last time out, they allowed New York Jets wide receiver, Jamison Crowder, to catch six of eight targets for 66 yards.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Metcalf can safely be inserted as a No. 2 wide receiver, while Lockett is closer to a third or fourth wideout. Moore should not be on fantasy radars this weekend.
