Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has rapidly ascended into the upper echelon of wide receivers to start this season. Entering Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins, he's WR6 in PPR scoring. If it weren't for a bone-headed play in Week 3, he would be fourth thanks to an additional touchdown. Despite that, you still need to have him locked into your lineups. Quarterback Russell Wilson is playing the best football we've ever seen from him, and Metcalf has been one of the primary beneficiaries of that. If this game becomes another shootout, Metcalf has the potential for another big week.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf had an exceptional game in Week 3, but it could have been even better. He caught four of his eight targets for 110 yards and a touchdown, but he should have had another. After catching an easy ball at the eight-yard line, he coasted to the one-yard line where he was stripped by Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs. Metcalf was nearly uncoverable on the afternoon, and that's going to continue thanks to his supreme size and athleticism. Moving forward, he is a near-lock for your lineups on a weekly basis.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf went long again in Week 2 and he turned in another solid fantasy outing. He caught four of his six targets for 92 yards and a touchdown. This is the second week in a row that Metcalf has averaged over 20 yards per reception, and it's clear that this offense is content to allow quarterback Russell Wilson to stretch the field more and more. As long as Wilson is airing it out, Metcalf is going to have WR2 upside on a weekly basis thanks to his big-play ability. His performance on Sunday night was even more impressive, considering the fact that he was being covered by Patriots All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore. Metcalf is the real deal, folks.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf is the No. 2 receiver on his team, but he's still a really good fantasy option. His unique combination of size and speed make him difficult for even the best cornerbacks to cover. In games that he saw at least five targets in last season, he averaged nearly 14 PPR points per game. He gives you a safe level of production every week and he can elevate even further with a big play or two. You likely drafted Metcalf to give you WR2 production this year, and he can do that in Week 1 against the Falcons.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was praised by offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer earlier this week for his determination and desire to become one of the best receivers in the game, according to a report from SeattlePI. The now second-year player has continued to stay motivated during training camp and has been shining on a consistent basis. Coach Pete Carroll hopes to put the 6'4" receiver in different formations this upcoming season after he compiled 58 receptions, 900 yards, and seven touchdowns in 2019. Metcalf is a WR2 in fantasy with much upside.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has been turning heads at camp so far. In Monday's practice, the team ran 7-on-7 drills that saw Metcalf catch two touchdown passes from quarterback Russell Wilson. One came on a short yardage play and the other came on a diving catch made by Metcalf. The second-year wideout has an ADP around 50 right now as there is a lot of excitement around him. He has a chance to have a monster of a season if his targets can go up from the 100 he had last year to around 115 or 120 this year. Expect 1,000 yards and close to 10 touchdowns on the year for Metcalf if he can stay healthy.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf recently made NFL Network's "Top-100 List," a poll conducted by players around the league. Coming in at No. 81, the sophomore has already gained recognition as one of the best in the league despite the small sample size. He finished the 2019 campaign with 900 yards and seven touchdowns off of 58 catches (100 targets, and, along with Tyler Lockett, was dynamic inside the 20-yard line. The 22-year-old is slated to get taken somewhere in the third or fourth rounds in fantasy drafts for the 2020 season and should be on the radar for fantasy managers who miss out on an elite wideout early on.
Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said the team has talked "at length" about what more they can unlock with wide receiver D.K. Metcalf after he had 58 catches for 900 yards and seven touchdowns in a sensational rookie year. The 6-foot-4 star also had 160 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches against the Eagles in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The yardage was an NFL rookie playoff record. Seattle has a desire to expand Metcalf's versatility in the passing game, moving him around the field more often. Despite being on a run-first team, Metcalf displayed his upside in Year 1 and could be even more valuable to fantasy owners if his route tree expanded. His draft stock heading into his sophomore campaign is on the rise.
