2019 RTSports Outlook

Metcalf is an imposing receiver that the Seahawks hope will be a productive player for years to come. He will get a chance to compete for a starting job his rookie year. Metcalf certainly looks the part. He is a big, strong receiver with speed. He wasn't the most productive player in college, though, and lacks some moves in space. He will need to be more consistent in the pro game if he hopes to be a starter and productive NFL player.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Metcalf probably will be hit or miss his rookie year. He will get some chances but has a lot of competition for targets. He will be a hard fantasy play right now. Expect around 45 receptions for 600 yards and a few scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

The Seattle Seahawks, known for trading down in the NFL draft to acquire more picks, flipped the script and traded back into the second round in order to draft the free-falling D.K. Metcalf, who some had mocked as high as No. 9 overall but who Seattle snagged at No. 64. Metcalf is a prototypical X-receiver with absolutely freakish athletic ability, which was on full display at the combine. He ran a 4.33 in the 40-yard dash and stands an imposing six-foot-three and 228 pounds. Scouts were concerned about his limited route-running, but coach Pete Carroll has made it exceptionally clear that that is not a concern of theirs. Plus, Metcalf has been working out with wide receiver coaches this offseason, and looked outstanding in Seattles rookie minicamp. With Doug Baldwins retirement, Metcalf is expected to step into Seattles No. 2 receiver role, and is an immediate deep threat with quarterback Russell Wilsons strong, accurate arm giving Metcalf even more fantasy value. Seattle is a run-first offense, but Metcalf has the tools to be an absolute weapon in fantasy circles, particularly best-ball formats. He has the tools to be an immediate contributor in most fantasy formats though, and he should be considered near the end of drafts.

Dec 3 3:00am ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf finished with the most receiving yards of any pass catcher on Monday night as he wound up with 75 yards on six receptions. Metcalf wasn't able to find the end zone, but he was a regular target of Russell Wilson's whenever the team needed a first down. He also made another unfortunate error when he fumbled a catch deep in Minnesota territory in the fourth quarter, but Seattle was able to prevail anyway. Metcalf has grown this season from a home run specialist to a regular contributor for the Seahawks, and it looks like he's on his way to becoming a household name for something more than his abs at the combine.

A day after being limited in practice due to a knee issue, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf returned to being a full participant in practice on Friday. Metcalf has had a strong rookie season, putting up 630 yards so far. He's also hauled in five touchdowns, and he's caught at least one pass of 25 or more yards in eight of the team' 11 games so far this year. He's even seen a big jump in targets, racking up six or more targets in four of his last five games. Expect Metcalf to be one of Russell Wilson's favorite folks to go to on Monday night, especially if Tyler Lockett is sidelined with the bug that is going around the locker room.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf only caught three of six passes on Sunday, posting one of his worst games as a pro. To further exacerbate his struggles, one of the passes he dropped was a touchdown pass that hit him in both hands. The dropped TD chance wasn't the easiest catch in the world, as it was a little underthrown and in windy, wet conditions, but it was still a catch everyone expects a professional wide receiver to make. Metcalf will need to be on top of his game next week when Minnesota comes to town. Their secondary is considerably better, and Seattle will have a real battle on their hands.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has proven that he belongs in this league, but he'll have his work cut out for him this weekend. Metcalf has excelled on deep balls, but there's expected to be a strong, cold wind blowing during Sunday's game. That could wreak havoc on Metcalf's bread and butter. To add on to that, Tyler Lockett looks to be fully back, Josh Gordon has now had two more weeks to learn the offense, and Jacob Hollister has gone from nobody to star tight end. Opportunities may be hard to come by on Sunday, and Philly's secondary has been on the upswing. This could be a real empty game for Metcalf's stat sheet.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf had quite the game on Monday night. In a game that was likened to a heavyweight bout where both fighters were just slugging at each other over and over, Metcalf had stuff happening all over the chart. He suffered the loneliest feeling in the world when a big gainer turned into a fumble at the two-yard line, recovered by San Francisco. He then got the news that he was the team's new No. 1 receiver in overtime of the biggest game of his career when Tyler Lockett was sidelined with a serious leg contusion. Metcalf finished with six catches for 70 yards and no touchdowns, but the box score doesn't do his night justice. He'll get to mull it all over for the next two weeks due to the bye week. Welcome to the NFL.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf had a big game last week against Tampa Bay, but he's going to have his work cut out for him on Monday night. Facing the stingiest defense in the NFC, Metcalf will likely find himself facing off against former Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman for the majority of the night. While Tyler Lockett is Seattle's top dog, Lockett often works from the slot and will leave Metcalf on the outside, where Sherman specializes. Metcalf will need to be at the top of his game to be able to snag another big gainer, something he's prone to do. Owners probably want to look elsewhere for this week, if they can afford to do so.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf had a banner day in Week 9. Metcalf hauled in six passes (a career high) on nine targets (tied a career high) for 123 total receiving yards (a career high) including a 53-yard touchdown grab (a career high) late in the fourth quarter. Metcalf's speed and ability to lose defensive backs has allowed him to tally a gain of 28 yards or greater in seven of his nine games this season, and he's sixth in the league in yards per reception. Metcalf has been the perfect complement for Tyler Lockett, and it looks like he has the potential to be a big-play threat for years to come.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has quietly been a top-25 receiver over the last five weeks. His 14 catches for 185 yards don't wow you, but he has three touchdowns as well. His hot streak could continue this week, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been the worst at defending the position the last five weeks. He's among the best WR3 options you could have this week.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf caught three of five targets for 13 yards and two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons. The rookie receiver was a real touchdown magnet, as quarterback Russell Wilson looked his way a couple of times in the red-zone. The 6'3" Metcalf proved he could be a real asset at the goal-line in this one. According to ESPN's Mike Clay, Metcalf leads the NFL in red-zone targets with 13. If he keeps getting red-zone looks and can boost his catches and yardage numbers, the rookie could be a solid fantasy player. Metcalf gets a good matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf caught 4-of-9 targets for 53 yards during a 30-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. The rookie wideout also lost a costly fumble in the fourth quarter with his team trailing by 10 points. It was a tough day for the Seahawks' offense as a whole, and Metcalf suffered the same fate. Luckily, he gets a perfect opportunity to rebound in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Oct 19 6:50pm ET

D.K. Metcalf has pieced together a couple of nice fantasy outings this season, but his outlook for the future is contingent on touchdowns. In games without a touchdown, Metcalf has yet to score more than 10 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues. Baltimore's secondary is exploitable, and there will be more targets to go around with Will Dissly's absence, but it's best to avoid Metcalf unless absolutely necessary.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf hauled in another pass longer than 25 yards when he brought in a 30-yarder on the team's first drive of the day. This time, instead of a bomb falling gently into his arms in space, Metcalf caught a short slant and fought his way through a couple of tacklers before a gang of Browns defenders pushed him out of bounds. Metcalf also caught four of five passes slung his way this week, his highest catch percentage this season. Metcalf is showing some growth for Seattle, and when combined with his ridiculous measurables, he could be a superstar in the league if he can regularly catch the ball.

Oct 12 2:50am ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf is the epitome of the deep threat that can strike at any time. Metcalf caught a wide-open pass off a busted coverage last week to score his second touchdown of the season, and at 22.3 yards per reception, Metcalf easily leads the league in the category. The problem is that he also struggles to catch the ball, hauling in just 46% of passes thrown his way. Metcalf has taken a single reception for 40 yards or longer in three of his five games this season, but he's also only caught more than three passes in a game once. Bold owners can run him out there, but he can turn in a six-yard day just as easily as an 80-yard day.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf got back on his horse and turned a footrace into an easy score in Thursday's win over the Rams. Metcalf got free off the back of a play-action setup and hauled in a 40-yard bomb from quarterback Russell Wilson in the second quarter. Metcalf's speed and the play design left him ridiculously wide open, and it now makes a 25-yard or greater catch in four of his first five NFL games. Metcalf caught two of the three passes sent his way, dropping a failed two-point conversion that hit him in the hands, but 66% is the best catch percentage he's had since Week 1. He's still a boom-or-bust play due to his hands, but maybe this is a sign that things are improving.

Oct 2 11:10pm ET

After putting up big catches in every one of his first three games in the NFL, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was missing for the Arizona game. He actually got a couple chances for touchdowns, but he dropped one of the passes and was barely overthrown on another. Metcalf has proved to be an electric receiver so far, but his hands have proven to be an issue as he's caught one less pass each week and has only caught 43% of the passes sent his way. His big plays are great, but unless he can become more dependable on actually snagging the balls headed his way, his ceiling is extremely limited. His first primetime game at home would be the perfect spot to prove that he's getting better. He'll likely get a couple of chances, but he's the epitome of a boom-or-bust pick for this week.

Sep 30 3:30am ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was lost in the shuffle against the Cardinals on Sunday. Metcalf was targeted three times on the first two drives of the game, but he failed to catch any of the three passes. By that point, the score was 20-3, and Metcalf would only see one more pass all game. He caught that one and got six yards, but that was it for him. So far, the one criticism that has been easiest to levy at Metcalf has been the fact that he's only caught 10 of the 23 balls sent his way. That means there will be games where he misses his couple chances, and the circumstances may force the team to move away from him. This was one of those games.

Sep 27 3:10pm ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has been a stud at turning in big plays so far, and he'll be on the lookout for more of them this weekend. Metcalf has racked up at least one reception of 25 or more yards in each of his first three games in the NFL, and Arizona's secondary happens to be quite susceptible to such plays. The Cardinals are allowing passes to go for 25 or more yards 13% of the time, and while Patrick Peterson is patrolling, he'll only be able to cover one man. The expectation is that Peterson will spend the majority of his day covering Tyler Lockett, which should give Metcalf an opening. Don't be surprised if Metcalf ends up being the team's top receiver in Week 4.

Sep 23 2:50am ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf continued his impressive run on Sunday as he snagged a 54-yard bomb just before halftime. Metcalf was a little quieter the rest of the day, partially due to rain and constant slipping on the field, but he's now caught a pass of 25+ yards in all three games of his young career. Metcalf was targeted six times in the game, and while he only caught two of the passes, he at least made those ones count. The coaching staff seems to love having Metcalf across from Tyler Lockett, so it looks like he's in for a pretty solid year as the team's No. 2 receiver.

When the Seattle Seahawks drafted wide receiver D.K. Metcalf in the second round of this year's draft, there was a ton of criticism about how Metcalf was nothing but a workout warrior. However, head coach Pete Carroll was enthralled by Metcalf's size and speed combination. He's been searching for that type of receiver for years, trying out the likes of Sidney Rice, Brandon Marshall, and others. None have been the right fit for long, but so far, Metcalf has been fantastic. Metcalf will get another chance to prove the doubters wrong when he faces a soft Saints secondary on Sunday. He should have no problem racking up some more points.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf kept the good times rolling in Week 2 as he juggled and grasped his first NFL touchdown. With a beautiful pass dropped right in on his hands as he faded towards the back corner of the end zone, Metcalf made it exciting by bobbling the ball twice before securing it and getting both feet in-bounds. Metcalf has been a bit of a revelation earlier after everyone was positive he was just a workout warrior who wouldn't be able to cut it as a receiver in the league. It's certainly still early, but it looks like he might have the goods to be a solid No. 2.
