The Houston Texans added point guard John Metchie with the 12th pick in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft – ahead of more complete wide receiver prospects such as George Pickens, Alec Pierce, Skyy Moore, Jalen Tolbert and David Bell . With that kind of investment made, Houston likely has a vision for using Metchie. And given his route-tree data and mixed success working at different levels of the field, Metchie can depend on scripted touches to produce NFL-level fantasy-relevant results.
Metchie’s landing spot on a Houston depth board devoid of offensive talent gives him a real chance to fill a fruitful role upfront. How should we weigh his desirability when comparing the value of Metchie’s Dynasty to WR’s prospects with a stronger long-term outlook? And how high should Houston’s rookie threat be drafted in the one-season leagues?
