Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) has been placed on injured reserve with a concussion. The rookie has been dealing with a concussion since Week 1 and has missed the last three games for the Seahawks. Eskridge was picked in the second round of the 2021 draft and has caught one ball for six yards this year. When healthy, Eskridge could see time as the No. 3 receiver. Until he shows he is healthy and contributes on the field, Eskridge can be avoided in all formats. Replacing Eskridge on the roster will be veteran Phillip Dorsett and he can be ignored in all formats.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers, while rookie wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) is listed as doubtful. Penny suffered his injury in the season opener and hasn't played since. Given Seattle's depth at the position, he doesn't need to be stashed in 12- and 14-team leagues. Eskridge suffered a concussion in his first NFL game and has been out since, although he did get in a limited practice session on Thursday. It sounds as if he's making some progress, but it'll probably be another week until he's ready to return to the field. If Tyler Lockett (hip) cannot play in Week 4, Freddie Swain and Penny Hart could round out three-receiver sets with D.K. Metcalf.
Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) got in a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday with his head injury. The 24-year-old caught his only target for six yards and carried the ball twice for 22 yards in his NFL debut in the season opener, but he's missed the last two games with a concussion. Eskridge is clearly making progress in the league's concussion protocol, though, giving him a chance to play in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers. Seattle may need him if Tyler Lockett (hip) cannot play. Freddie Swain may still be the better deep-league dart throw if Lockett is out and Eskridge returns to the field. There's a lot to like about Eskridge's skills in this offense, but he's currently only a hold in dynasty/keeper leagues.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) and rookie Dee Eskridge (concussion) have been ruled out for Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings for the second straight week. The Seahawks are hopeful that Penny will be able to return in Week 4, but given his lengthy injury history, nobody should be holding their breathe for him. And Seattle has no reason to rush him back with Chris Carson, Alex Collins, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas at their disposal at the RB position. Eskridge is also hoping to return in Week 4, but Freddie Swain, who had five catches for 95 yards and a touchdown in Week 2, could cement himself as the No. 3 receiver by then. Eskridge is surely worth a stash in dynasty/keeper formats, but outside of those leagues he should be on waivers.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) has a chance at making his NFL debut during the team's Week 3 matchup vs. Minnesota. Eskridge, the team's second-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft out of Western Michigan, has been sidelined under the league's concussion protocol. His absence opened the door for Freddie Swain to step into an elevated role, which he parlayed into a 95-yard, one touchdown performance in Week 2. Most encouragingly for Eskridge moving forward, he will practice this week, an indication that a return to play likely isn't far off. He will have to battle D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett -- as well as Swain -- for targets, but he could emerge as an under-the-radar DFS selection moving forward where applicable.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) was downgraded to out ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans. This comes as no surprise considering the rookie was unable to practice all week long. In Week 1, he hauled in his lone target for six yards. He also rushed twice for 22 yards on the ground. This week, the Western Michigan product will likely be replaced by some sort of split between Freddie Swain and Penny Hart.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that rookie wide receiver Dee Eskridge (head) will not practice on Wednesday. Eskridge is in the concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in his NFL debut in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. Before his injury, he carried the ball twice for 22 yards and had one catch for six yards. The 24-year-old is intriguing in Seattle's new-look offense, but he'll be hard to trust in his rookie year unless one of DK Metcalf or Tyler Lockett miss time with injury. If Eskridge can't clear the concussion protocol and play in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans, Freddie Swain would likely start in three-receiver sets.
Seattle Seahawks wide receivers Dee Eskridge and Penny Hart both suffered head injuries in the Week 1 win over the Indianapolis Colts and are in the league's concussion protocol. Eskridge had two carries for 22 yards and caught his only target for six yards in his first NFL game last Sunday, while didn't record any offensive stats in the contest. Both players should be considered questionable for the Week 2 home opener against the Tennessee Titans this Sunday. They'll need to pass through the league's concussion protocols in order to get onto the practice field. As of right now, DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Freddie Swain are Seattle's only healthy receivers on the active roster.
The Seattle Seahawks activated rookie wide receiver D'Wayne Eskridge (toe) off of the PUP list on Tuesday. Eskridge was sidelined for about three weeks due to a sore toe. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the media that the team expects for the rookie to be ready for the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts. Eskridge is a 5'9" speedster who could operate either out of the slot or out wide as a deep threat for the team. He was selected in the second round of this year's draft and has a chance to see some decent playing time as a rookie. His primary competition for playing time behind the team's elite duo of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett will be Freddie Swain.
Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver D'Wayne Eskridge (foot) has been dealing with an injury this offseason that landed him on the Physically Unable to Perform list in late July. However, head coach Pete Carroll announced that Eskridge and the equipment staff got together to create a special cleat that is allowing Eskridge to run pain-free. Eskridge is expected to increase his conditioning work over the next few weeks, and the goal is for him to be activated before the team opens play in Week 1. The first-year pass-catcher is an excellent fit for this offense and could see action in three-receiver sets alongside D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, making him an intriguing late-round flier in deeper leagues if he's healthy enough come Week 1.
Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver D'Wayne Eskridge (toe) is off to a rough start to his pro career after he was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Wednesday. He was dealing with the same injury during the team's offseason program, which kept him limited back in June. Eskridge was the team's first draft selection with the 56th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, and he was the presumptive leader in the clubhouse for WR3 duties. He can be activated at any time, so this isn't to say that he won't be ready for the start of the season. The team is making this move to give themselves additional roster flexibility in the event he takes longer to recover than they would hope.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett believes that rookie D'Wayne Eskridge, selected with the No. 56 overall pick in last week's NFL draft, will be an immediate contributor in 2021 alongside himself and DK Metcalf. "He's very explosive," Lockett said. Eskridge stands at just 5-foot-9, but he ran a 4.40-second 40-yard dash at Western Michigan's Pro Day and racked up more than 2,000 receiving yards in college. He had 768 receiving yards and eight touchdowns on only 33 catches in six games played in 2020. Eskridge is extremely athletic and has plenty of home run playmaking ability, but he'll need to improve his route-running tree if he's to be an effective No. 3 in Seattle in Year 1. After Seattle's offense sputtered out in the second half last year, Eskridge could be the key to the passing game flourishing once again in 2021. He could develop into a WR3/flex option in his rookie season.
