Fantasy Recap: Week 16 Saturday Early Slate 2


    Seahawks 10, Chiefs 24 (Chiefs -10 covered, U49.5)


    Key Postgame Stories

    This projected high-scoring game didn’t live up to the hype. The Seahawks were unable to provide any offense all game outside of a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks out-gained the Chiefs in yardage, but they weren’t able to finish drives, leading to a lopsided finish.


    Top Performers

    DK Metcalf: The best fantasy day from the Seahawks came from Metcalf. Ken Walker III had the better day, rushing the ball 26 times for 107 yards, but his lack of a touchdown and catches led to a mediocre fantasy day. Metcalf caught seven passes for 107 yards, and outside of Colby Parkinson and DeeJay Dallas, he provided the only help in the receiving game. As long as Tyler Lockett is out, Metcalf is a must-start in the fantasy playoffs.


    Travis Kelce: The best tight end in the NFL provided for fantasy managers once again. Despite not finding the end zone, Kelce managed to score 17.3 fantasy points on six catches for 113 yards. Kelce has the YAC abilities of an elite wide receiver and the size and strength of a tight end, making him unguardable. He’s obviously a must-start, and he’s further cementing his status as a first-round pick in fantasy drafts next year.

    Biggest Busts

    Marquise Goodwin: Goodwin had a big opportunity against the Chiefs without Tyler Lockett, but he was disappointing. Goodwin didn’t catch any of his four targets, giving him no fantasy points on the day. He still had upside without Lockett, and managers may want to start him again, but you can’t possibly trust him after this performance.
