2020 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.

Player Notes
Jan 12 11:40pm ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was going to be hard-pressed to improve on last week's blistering performance in Philadelphia, but he still put up a solid game in the Seahawks loss. Metcalf was only targeted five times on the night, and while he caught four of the passes, he wasn't able to break any loose for a huge gain. Instead, Metcalf finished with a respectable 59 yards while Tyler Lockett put up the gaudy numbers. Metcalf showed unbelievable growth over the course of his first professional season, and he looks like he could go down as one of the biggest steals of the 2019 draft. Expect him to wreak more havoc on the field next year as he continues to build rapport with Russell Wilson.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was the star of the show last week when he hung 160 yards on the Philadelphia Eagles in his first playoff game. Now, he'll head into the teeth of the monster when he faces a much stingier Green Bay defense in freezing temperatures on Sunday night. While the Packers Defense is tougher, they can also be spread out and abused if a team's routes are drawn up just right. In Week 15 against the Bears, the Packers gave up 100 receiving yards to two different wideouts thanks to Chicago spreading Allen Robinson out wide while Anthony Miller worked the middle of the field from the slot. Granted, it was against some soft prevent defense, but it showed that a team with that combo could make some hay. Seattle brings that kind of combination with Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, and fantasy owners should expect that they'll be looking for those opportunities. Metcalf could still find himself scoring from a long way out.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf showed he was bigger than the moment on Sunday night when he roasted the Eagles in his first career playoff game. Metcalf set a new NFL record for yards in a rookie's playoff debut by hauling in seven passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. He also shattered Seattle's franchise record for receiving yards in a playoff game. Metcalf's performance included two spectacular deep passes that gave Seattle their only passing touchdown on the day and sealed the victory, respectively. Metcalf was a monster throughout the entire game, and his touchdown grab that included falling, getting back up, and fighting through a tackle to get into the end zone was a thing of beauty.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf will get his first crack at the playoffs on Sunday when Seattle visits the Philadelphia Eagles for the second time this season. In blustery, rainy conditions the first time around, Metcalf had an ugly drop on a touchdown pass that hit him directly in the hands. Seattle would hang on to win the game anyway, but it was a win that was riddled with poor performances. Metcalf will now get a chance to redeem himself, and it will be in a much more important contest than the first one. Metcalf had a strong game last week against the 49ers, so he'll look to carry that momentum into this matchup with Philly. Fortunately, the Eagles secondary is quite suspect on the outside, so Metcalf should get more big chances.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf didn't have his most impressive game of the season on Sunday, catching just 50% of the passes sent his way, but he snagged a laser beam as it passed over his head late in the fourth quarter. That catch brought Seattle within striking distance, and though the comeback fell two inches short, literally, Metcalf will get one trivia factoid attached to his name. Metcalf's TD catch was the final NFL touchdown of the 2010s. Metcalf has grown an impressive amount this season, and he's moved from just being a deep ball threat that depended on his ridiculous speed to being more of an all-around receiver. Expect him to play a big role in the Seahawks future, starting with next week's playoff game.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf led the way for Seattle's receiving corps last time they faced the 49ers, and he'll need to make some more big plays on Sunday if Seattle's going to find a way to win. The rookie has been a wonderful addition to the team this season, and he's shown serious growth as the year has progressed. Now he'll get his first taste of playing in a critical game that could determine the team's entire playoff future, and he'll get the bonus pressure of primetime and a home crowd that is truly unbelievable. Metcalf will likely get targeted often in Sunday's game, and he should be ready for the moment.

Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf took his first zero of his career on Sunday when he went without any catches against the Arizona Cardinals. In two meetings with the Cardinals, Metcalf has tallied a whopping one catch for four yards. Arizona has been one of the most forgiving secondaries in the game, but they have absolutely shut down Metcalf this year. While he came into the game with dreams of his first 1,000-yard season on the horizon, Metcalf will now need a minor miracle to reach that plateau. The 22-year-old has gotten a taste of what it's like to be eliminated in an NFL game. Hopefully, he can learn how to avoid it in the future.

Dec 21 6:00pm ET

Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has been a revelation this season, but the one blemish on his stat sheet was his game against the Arizona Cardinals. Metcalf only caught one pass in the contest in Phoenix, and he tallied a season-low six yards. He'll get the chance for redemption this week when Seattle welcomes the Cardinals in a matchup that is expected to be a bit of a blowout. Metcalf could see an uptick in usage this week if the Seahawks decide to let Tyler Lockett have an easy outing to prepare for next week's much bigger matchup against the 49ers. Sitting at 819 yards on the season, there's even an outside chance Metcalf could haul in a big bomb or two to help get him over the 1,000-yard hump in his first year.

Dec 16 1:30am ET

Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf made a strong leaping catch over his man late in the first quarter to bring in his sixth touchdown of the season on Sunday. Metcalf climbed the ladder to snag the perfectly placed pass by Russell Wilson, giving him his first score in six weeks. Metcalf was only targeted four times in the day, one of which was on an ill-fated trick play pass thrown by Josh Gordon where Metcalf was double covered and not open in any way, shape, or form. With Tyler Lockett rounding back into form, Metcalf will likely recede back into being a home run hitter more often than not, but he's proven that he can work as a possession receiver when needed.

Dec 15 2:00am ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf stepped into the primary role quite well while Tyler Lockett was banged up and ill, and he'll look to continue that growth this weekend as he faces a Carolina squad that has allowed the third-most yards to opposing wide receivers this year. The Panthers have proven quite adept at limiting touchdowns, but their bendy secondary has allowed some big weeks on the outside. Expect Metcalf to push the field and look for the home run ball, and his improved catching should keep him on the scoreboard even if he can't land the big one.

From RotoBaller

Dec 9 3:50am ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was targeted six times on Sunday night, and he hauled in all six passes. That's the first time in his career that he's caught every pass thrown his way, and it further accentuates the growth he's had as a receiver this season. Unfortunately, Seattle lost the game and Metcalf was held without a touchdown, but improved catching is a wonderful bit of growth for the rookie. Metcalf now sits at 783 yards receiving on 50 catches, and he's been able to score five touchdowns. For a guy who was thought to just be a workout warrior, it's been quite the impressive rookie campaign.

Dec 7 8:40pm ET

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf snuck behind the defense and hauled in a bomb from Russell Wilson for a touchdown in his first career game against the Rams, and LA is definitely preparing to try to prevent that from happening again. Metcalf has excelled in that arena, hauling in a pass for 20 or more yards in nine of his 12 games this season, and fantasy owners should bank on Seattle looking for Metcalf downfield once again on Sunday night. The workout wonder has grown throughout the season and turned into more of a possession receiver while Tyler Lockett was hampered with a leg injury, but Lockett is expected to be back to full speed on Sunday, which should give Metcalf the freedom to roam a little more. Expect to see at least one long bomb with his name on it.

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.

Nov 30 12:30pm ET

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.

Nov 25 3:00am ET

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.

Nov 22 9:40pm ET

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.

Nov 12 3:20am ET

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.

Nov 9 3:40pm ET

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.

Nov 4 1:50am ET

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.

Nov 1 9:20pm ET

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.
