Winner - WR DK Metcalf

Many people may wonder why Jaxson Smith-Njigba is considered a loser while DK Metcalf is considered a winner. It's a valid question that can be viewed from different angles. However, one thing that can be said about DK is that he has already proven himself to be a top wide receiver in the league over the last few seasons. He achieved this feat with Russell Wilson as his quarterback and proved many people wrong last season when Geno Smith took over.

The arrival of Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the Seahawks' offense will create more opportunities for DK Metcalf by drawing defenders away from him, leaving him open with one-on-one coverage. If Geno Smith can maintain his form from last season, DK has the potential to be a top-10 wide receiver this year. Touchdowns can be a volatile stat and hard to predict year over year.

However, the addition of Jaxon Smith-Njigba to the Seahawks' offense and the possibility of defenses paying more attention to him could potentially create more scoring opportunities for DK Metcalf. Ultimately, drafting Metcalf as a top-tier WR1 is a safe bet, but it's important to manage expectations and not rely solely on touchdowns for his fantasy value.
