2020 RTSports Outlook

It didn't take long for Metcalf to emerge as a top target in the Seahawks offense his rookie season. He had two 100-yard games and was 29th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. Metcalf had 900-receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He is going to be a big part of the Seahawks offense for years to come. Metcalf is a big, strong receiver with speed. He needs to work on his route running some and will drop some passes. Metcalf is a big-time talent, though, and can make plays all over the field because of his abilities.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Metcalf can build on his rookie season and show a little more consistency for fantasy teams. He has a high ceiling in this passing game. Consider him a No. 2 for fantasy teams. He can get around 70 receptions for 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

DK Metcalf finished as the fourth most productive rookie WR in fantasy football in 2019. Entering his new season, though, no other second-year wideout may have more upside. Many questioned Metcalfs techniques, including his route running, entering the pros. But he landed in ideal situation in Seattle with Russell Wilson, who is a premier deep thrower and needed a target with Metcalfs size/speed blend of abilities. Metcalf averaged 15.5 yards per catch and caught seven TD passes. He had 10 double figure PPR performances in his first pro campaign. He had five games of six receptions in his final eight outings. His true breakthrough game came in the NFC Wild Card Game against Philadelphia. In a record-setting performance for a rookie, Metcalf caught seven balls for 160 yards and scored on a 53-yard TD reception. Metcalf had difficulty winning contested catches for most of the regular season, but by playoff time, he had evolved more as an all-around WR. As a unique 6-4, 229 pounder with impressive speed (his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine stirred some buzz) and a top QB as his partner, Metcalf has significant starting fantasy WR appeal for 2020. Seeing him go over 70 catches and 1,050 yards and score eight or more times would not be surprising. His ADP of 48 shows that many fantasy players already realize that Metcalf is on the verge of stardom.

Player Notes
Jul 27 7:40pm ET

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.
