- Alabama pulls away late in win over Tennessee
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Metchie was selected by Houston in the second round of April's draft, but is expected to miss his rookie season while receiving treatment for Leukemia. Metchie emerged as one of Alabama's top targets in 2021, posting a 96-1142-8 receiving line while handling 24% of the team targets. He spent half his time in the slot (47% of routes) and was mostly used in the short area (8.4 aDOT). He's on the small side and not overly fast or athletic, but he's a terrific route runner and profiles as a slot man in the pros. Metchie has the upside to eventually emerge as a weekly fantasy starter, so if not later in 2022, we hope to see him on the field in 2023.
