Best 2020 NFL Wide Receiver Trio Preseason Tournament: NFC West (Round 1): Seahawks v. Rams
SEA = Lockett, Metcalf, D. Moore
LAR = Kupp, Woods, Reynolds
#1) Lockett v. Kupp
WINNER = Tyler Lockett (SEA leads 1-0)
Tough matchup, I like them both…I take Tyler Lockett because he can play more roles then Kupp. The more diversified WR wins…Lockett. Both solid pros.
#2) Metcalf v. Woods
WINNER = D.K. Metcalf (SEA leads 2-0)
This one stopped me in my tracks…and the fact that I went Metcalf has me rethinking my Metcalf position in fantasy. I’m not a fan of DKM because he’s a limited WR technician/a one-note WR (goes deep) and because he was so swooned over in the pre-NFL Draft analysis/hype as some kind of better than Julio Jones/Calvin Johnson/Randy Moss type figure. He isn’t that great…but he is a serious weapon of mass destruction in his ‘one thing’.
I think I’d rather have a great one note WR and utilize that versus a dime-a-dozen ‘good’ pro WR like Woods…no smack on Woods, who has been underrated for years but is finally getting his due. I just think what Metcalf does can alter things more than what Woods does. Maybe I had too many McNuggets for dinner just now and I’m off my game, but Metcalf here.
#3) D. Moore v. J Reynolds
WINNER = David Moore (SEA wins 3-0)
I’m a Josh Reynolds fan, mildly…but I think I’d take David Moore in a quick ‘pick' em’ just because of the size/athleticism Moore brings. He’s a better WR than given credit…buried behind Lockett-Metcalf and hurt (nagging) a bunch last year. Moore had 5 TDs in limited play in 2018 and was becoming a Wilson fave for a stretch but he’s lost that momentum…point being, he’s shown skills at the pro level.
Tomorrow: Round Two begins…Patriots v. Bills
