In a game where the Houston Texans were outpaced by the Indianapolis Colts 31-20, rookie wide receiver John Metchie III made his NFL debut with a single reception for 17 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Despite being targeted only once in his NFL debut, Metchie managed to turn it into a solid gain in the fourth quarter, showcasing his potential for big plays. However, his limited involvement in the Texans’ offense resulted in a lowly WR87 ranking for the week. Fantasy managers will be hoping for an uptick in targets as the Texans face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars next week. For now, Metchie remains a speculative add in deeper leagues, with his value hinging on increased usage in the Texans’ passing game.
