My thought if Baldwin was able to come back DK most likely wouldn’t start for a while. With Baldwin out of the picture he should start at the X week 1. Lockett will slide to Baldwin’s spot.Phaded wrote: ↑Thu May 09, 2019 5:58 pm...I'm not sure what you're debating with me Ice.Ice wrote: ↑Thu May 09, 2019 5:41 pmHard to buy that. Seattle was well aware of Baldwin and moved up for him. Not sure about targets just yet but 5-8 TD’s and 15 yards per catch are a very real possibility with Wilson.Phaded wrote: ↑Thu May 09, 2019 4:41 pmI am not so sure Metcalf got a boost with Baldwin gone; I was under the assumption that most would have understood Metcalf was drafted as the eventual replacement as the WR1 for the Seahawks. I think hoping for immediate significance from Metcalf was always a bit too optimistic and you can call me crazy - but I think he would have benefited more from not being thrust into an every down starter role.
When he does not perform well now in year one - he will be chastised. Rightfully so or not. It can be damaging and challenging to a young kid's resolve.
Seattle does not have much after Lockett.
He will most likely start week 1 like every where else he has ever played.
There will be growing pains for sure but this kid comes from good stock and work ethic is of zero concern.
It sounds like we agree on the first part of what you said; which is why I said that Metcalf does not suddenly get a boost with Baldwin gone.. because that was the expectation all along..
I also think David Moore is going to get more snaps than people around here are thinking while it takes Metcalf time to adjust.
By circumstance he should get a boost. I agree that no one should get overly excited. I drafted him for 2020 and beyond but given he should now play more snaps his opportunities increase.
Lockett is redraft guy to own this season. He has Top 10-15 upside
