Player Outlook
Metcalf is a known commodity as a touchdown-reliant beast. Of the 29 games he's cradled at least 15 PPR points in over his past four seasons, only seven came without a visit to the end zone. That's not surprising given he's been top-four among wide receivers in end-zone targets every year of his career. Adding more to that role in 2024 is possible as new playcaller Ryan Grubb has consistently dialed up a large volume of targets to his wide receivers, but it's more often been slot receivers who have benefited the most, not perimeter guys like Metcalf. If you expect around 14 PPR points per game, Metcalf is your guy, but it's tough to expect more as long as the Seahawks receiver group remains deep. Think of Metcalf as a borderline No. 2 Fantasy WR in full-PPR who is still worthy of a pick around 50th overall, but his value is a little bit stronger in non-PPR where he'd be OK to take in late Round 4.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Ugly finish to 2023 season

    Metcalf was held to one reception for 10 yards on six targets in Sunday's 21-20 win over Arizona. Quarterback Geno Smith was not synced up with his No. 1 receiver despite picking up the win, resulting in the duo's worst catch rate (17 percent) to date. Even with the sour finish, Metcalf turned in his third 1,000-yard season since joining the league in 2019. The ironman missed the first game of his career due to injury, but he started Seattle's other 16 contests to finish with 66 receptions, 1,114 yards and eight touchdowns. Metcalf will continue to operate as the Seahawks' top receiving option when the team resumes play in 2024.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Tops 1,000 yards

    Metcalf recorded five catches on eight targets for 106 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers. Metcalf led Seattle with eight targets and took advantage of a depleted Steelers safety corps with long receptions of 33 and 32 yards. That helped him tally his third 100-yard receiving game of the season, while also topping 1,000 yards for the campaign. In five pro seasons, Metcalf now has topped the century mark on three occasions and has a minimum of 900 yards in each of those five campaigns.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Suiting up in Week 17

    Metcalf (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers. The Seahawks tacked Metcalf onto their Week 17 injury report Thursday as a non-participant due to a back issue. Coach Pete Carroll clarified the nature of the concern Friday, calling it lower-back tightness, per Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle, which kept Metcalf off the practice field to end the week and also left him questionable for Sunday's contest. At the same time, Carroll relayed an expectation that Metcalf would be available this weekend, and that's come to pass. Metcalf thus will be facing a Pittsburgh defense that has allowed the eighth-most yards per target (8.6) to opposing wide receivers this season.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Slated to play in Week 17

    Head coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Metcalf is tending to stiffness in his lower back, but the wide receiver is in line to play Sunday against the Steelers, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports. Metcalf showed up on the Seahawks' Week 17 injury report Thursday as a non-participant due to a back injury, which his coach now has clarified. Officially, the team is listing him as questionable for Sunday's game, per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, but Carroll's comments seem to alleviate concerns about the wideout's upcoming availability. In the end, Metcalf's status will be confirmed, one way or another, when Seattle releases its inactive list about 90 minutes before the game's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Listed as questionable

    Metcalf (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Metcalf was a mid-week addition to the injury report after sitting out Thursday's practice. Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports that Metcalf wasn't present at the start of practice Friday, suggesting the wideout at least is in some danger of landing on the inactive list ahead of a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff this Sunday.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Dealing with back issue

    Metcalf didn't practice Thursday due to a back injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Metcalf is making a mid-week appearance on the Seahawks' Week 17 injury report after avoiding it entirely Wednesday. Condotta noted that Metcalf wasn't present during the media-access portion of Thursday's session, and the fifth-year wide receiver now will have one more opportunity Friday to mix into drills before the team potentially gives him a designation for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Along with Metcalf logging a DNP on Thursday, Jaxon Smith-Njigba (knee) and Jake Bobo (knee) got back to all activity after limited practices Wednesday, while Dee Eskridge (ribs) again was sidelined, leaving Tyler Lockett as the only established WR on Seattle's active roster to not have a designation at some point this week.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Leading receiver in Monday's win

    Metcalf hauled in five of six targets for 78 yards in Monday's 20-17 win over the Eagles. Metcalf saw his usage return to normalcy after finishing with just two catches -- albeit for 52 yards and a touchdown -- in the Seahawks' last contest. The star wideout finished as his team's leading receiver while making a crucial 34-yard catch in the closing moments of Monday's comeback victory. Metcalf now will shift his focus to Sunday's road matchup against Tennessee, who ranks in the middle of the pack in terms of pass defense this season.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Ejected following late dustup

    Metcalf was ejected late in the fourth quarter after getting involved in an on-field altercation in Sunday's 28-16 loss to San Francisco. He finished with two receptions on five targets for 52 yards and a touchdown. Metcalf was ejected after giving Fred Warner what can best be described as a German suplex after the 49ers' linebacker intercepted Drew Lock in the final minutes of Sunday's loss. This triggered a chain of events that resulted in a mid-field skirmish involving players and coaches that saw ejections for both squads. Seattle did not get the ball back after losing its top wideout, so the ejection theoretically did not affect his final fantasy score. Perhaps Metcalf's frustration boiled over after he recorded all of his production on Seattle's opening drive, only to wind up with three targets and no receptions for the remainder of the game. Expect Metcalf to receive more looks in Week 15 when the Seahawks host the Eagles for Monday Night Football.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Breaks out for season-best effort

    Metcalf brought in six of eight targets for 134 yards and three touchdowns in the Seahawks' 41-35 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night. Metcalf paced the Seahawks in receiving yards on the night with the help of a 73-yard touchdown grab just past the midway point of the first quarter that served as the first of his three scores on the night. The talented wideout would strike again from one and three yards away in the second and fourth quarters, respectively, allowing him to double up his season touchdown tally in a little over three quarters. Metcalf's yardage total also served as a season high, and Thursday marked his first regular-season game with multiple end-zone visits through the air since Week 8 of the 2021 campaign. Metcalf now has at least 94 receiving yards in three of the last four games heading into a tough Week 14 road matchup against the 49ers on Sunday, Dec. 10.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Metcalf has at least nine targets in each of his past three games and in five of his past six. That kind of usage, especially in a game where the Seahawks figure to pass a bunch, makes him a borderline must-start. But on the 12 targets he's seen that have traveled at least 15 Air Yards over the past four weeks, Metcalf has caught just three. More alarming: Five of the targets were knocked away by defenders who were right on him when the ball arrived. He's not really zooming past anyone these days, and he's not winning contested catches regularly either. Pair that with the expectation that he'll line up across from DaRon Bland for much of the game (Bland usually plays right cornerback; Metcalf primarily lines up at left wide receiver) and it could be a rough one. Bland has allowed one touchdown and has allowed just a 52.5% catch rate with 13 passes defensed and seven interceptions. It's the volume you're banking on this week -- I'd start Metcalf in PPR over Diontae Johnson and Cooper Kupp, but I like the upside for Rashee Rice and Courtland Sutton just a little bit more.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Limited to three catches in loss

    Metcalf secured three of nine targets for 32 yards in the Seahawks' 31-13 loss to the 49ers on Thursday. Metcalf paced the Seahawks in targets on the night while sharing the lead in receptions with Tyler Lockett. The big-bodied Metcalf was a victim of Geno Smith's underwhelming night against the 49ers' suffocating defense, with Metcalf's yardage tally also serving as a season-low total. Metcalf and the rest of the Seahawks offense face a second straight tough defense when they tangle with the Cowboys on the road in a Week 13 Thursday night showdown.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Ready for Week 12

    Metcalf (toe) doesn't have a designation for Thursday's contest against the 49ers, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Metcalf made his typical mid-week appearance on the Seahawks' practice report, only this week he was tending to a new injury. A toe issue was the cause of his absence from Tuesday's walkthrough instead of the hip or rib concerns that previously plagued him this season. After he was listed as a full participant Wednesday, however, Metcalf now is set to take on a San Francisco defense that has allowed the fifth-highest catch rate (68.3 percent) to opposing wide receivers this season.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Tending to toe issue

    Metcalf (toe) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Metcalf's practice routine seems to be following a similar pattern as last week, only this time he's dealing with a toe injury instead of the nagging hip issue he's dealt with since Week 6. It's unclear if he's in danger of missing Thursday's game against the 49ers.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Double-digit targets Sunday

    Metcalf (hip) had seven receptions on 12 targets for 98 yards in Sunday's 29-26 win over Washington. Geno Smith looked Metcalf's way early and often after the teammates connected just once (albeit for 50 yards) in last week's blowout loss to Blatimore. Metcalf was not limited by the minor hip injury that held him out of Thursday's practice, receiving his full share of snaps while leading the team in targets and receiving yards Sunday. With his health back in order, the speedy wideout will look to build on a solid 35/552/2 receiving line against the Rams next Sunday. Metcalf recorded three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown when the two teams met back in Week 1.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: DNP on Thursday

    Metcalf (hip) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. While Metcalf's absence Thursday was attributed to a hip issue, he's likely getting a veteran rest day due to the injury that he initially suffered Week 6 and sidelined him Week 7. Ultimately, Friday's practice report will reveal whether or not he enters the weekend with a designation for Sunday's game against the Commanders.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: One long catch

    Metcalf recorded one reception on four targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 37-3 loss to Baltimore. The Seahawks managed to generate only 158 passing yards, so Metcalf's yardage total was respectable. The bigger problem was his volume, as he managed only four targets as compared to seven for Jaxon Smith-Njigba and eight for Tyler Lockett. It was a disappointing step back after he commanded 23 targets across his previous two games combined. The good news is that Seattle is likely to be in a far more competitive matchup in Week 10 against Washington, which should help Metcalf's opportunity.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Ready for Sunday

    Metcalf (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Baltimore, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Metcalf followed up a full practice Wednesday with no on-field activity one day later. His lingering hip injury was to blame, but on the bright side he ditched the rib injury that has followed him since Week 2. Now with his status confirmed for Week 9, Metcalf will take aim Sunday at a Ravens defense that has allowed opposing wide receivers to rack up the sixth-most catches (111) to opposing wide receivers in eight games this season.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: No practice Thursday

    Metcalf (hip) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. After practicing fully Wednesday, Metcalf may be sitting out for maintenance one day later due to the hip injury that sidelined him Week 7 against the Cardinals. On a positive note, the Seahawks haven't listed the rib issue that's followed him since Week 2 on their Week 9 injury reports, indicating he's put that concern in the rearview mirror. In the end, Metcalf may need to log an uncapped session Friday in order to enter the weekend without a designation for Sunday's road matchup with the Ravens.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Flex Starter (Lineup Decisions)

    Metcalf has built-in potential because of the looks he gets from Smith not only on deep targets but on end-zone targets. But this is the second straight tough matchup for him, and the Ravens' skilled red-zone defense makes it less likely Metcalf comes through. And even if he does, his track record this year suggests it won't be a massive game. Consider him flex worthy; I'd rather start Josh Downs, Jordan Addison and Tyler Lockett in PPR.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Inefficient on 14 targets

    Metcalf recorded five receptions on 14 targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Browns. Metcalf drew double-digit targets for the first time this season, though he still fell below 70 receiving yards for the third consecutive game. The highlight of his performance was a 43-yard grab late in the first quarter on a drive that ended with a field goal. While Metcalf was highly inefficient, he should have better results moving forward if he can regularly command targets at a higher clip.
