  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Snares 25 passes in 2021

    Swain recorded 25 catches (40 targets) for 343 yards and four touchdowns and five carries for 32 yards through 17 games during the 2021 season. He also returned 22 punts for 189 yards.

    Despite effectively splitting time with rookie second-round pick Dee Eskridge down the stretch, Swain improved in every category after posting a 13-159-2 line as a rookie. Still, he didn't leave us with much to get excited about. His splash plays were typically just broken defensive coverages, and he caught just nine passes over the last 10 contests. Eskridge could overtake Swain completely in 2022, and Swain's best-case scenario is a timeshare with Eskridge.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Leading receiver in win

    Swain caught both of his targets for 65 yards in Sunday's 51-29 win over the Lions.

    Swain gained 58 yards on a broken play in the second quarter, setting up a six-yard touchdown run from Rashaad Penny on the next play. The second-year wide receiver managed to lead the team in receiving yards despite the blowout nature of this game, bringing his totals to 24 receptions for 318 yards and three touchdowns this season.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Targeted twice in loss

    Swain caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Bears. He also returned a punt for 15 yards.

    Swain has caught just six passes for 84 yards and a touchdown over the past seven games. He's still running ahead of rookie second-round pick Dee Eskridge, as Swain logged 26 snaps (49 percent) versus Eskridge's 20 snaps (38 percent). It's nearly impossible to carve out a consistent role behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, so Swain won't have much fantasy relevance this year.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Cleared to play

    Swain (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bears, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Swain played 91 percent of snaps last week with Tyler Locket (illness) unavailable for a loss to the Rams, but he was targeted just once despite the ample playing time. With Lockett returning this week, Swain will be the third or fourth receiver and isn't likely to see more than a few targets.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Two limited sessions to open week

    Swain (ankle) remained limited at practice Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Swain has been limited in each of Seattle's first two practice this week. He battled this injury during practice last week but upgraded to full participation Friday and suited up against the Rams. Friday's injury report will reveal whether Swain's able to follow the same pattern heading into Sunday's game against the Bears.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Can't capitalize on big snap count

    Swain caught his lone target for 25 yards in Tuesday's 20-10 loss to the Rams. He also returned two punts for 14 yards.

    Tyler Lockett (illness) was out of the lineup after testing positive for COVID-19, allowing Swain to handle his highest snap share of the season (91 percent). Swain didn't capitalize on the opportunity, but it's tough to put too much blame on the second-year receiver. Quarterback Russell Wilson completed just 17 of 31 passes for 156 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in what was another rough outing in his return from finger surgery. Swain will likely split time with Dee Eskridge as the No. 3 receiver if Lockett returns for Sunday's game against the Bears.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Cleared for Week 15 game

    Swain (ankle/personal) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

    After all of Swain, DK Metcalf (foot/back) and Dee Eskridge (foot) were withheld from Seattle's first two practices of Week 15, the trio cleared up any concern about their availability for Seattle's upcoming game against the Rams by taking every rep during Friday's session. Even with the NFL announcing that the Seahawks-Rams matchup would be pushed back from Sunday to Tuesday due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Los Angeles organization, Seattle could still be without wideout Tyler Lockett (illness), who continues to experience symptoms after testing positive for the virus Thursday. If Lockett isn't cleared to play, Swain, Eskridge and Penny Hart would likely be in store for more reps alongside Metcalf.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Misses practice again

    Swain (ankle/personal) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Swain also sat out Wednesday, but the Seahawks' second Week 15 injury report revealed his absence to be related to personal reasons. He was joined by DK Metcalf (foot/back) and Dee Eskridge (foot) as DNPs on Thursday, while Tyler Lockett (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, leaving Penny Hart as the only healthy and available wide receiver on the team's active roster at the moment.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Held out of practice

    Swain (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Swain and rookie second-round pick Dee Eskridge, who out-snapped him Week 14, were both held out of Wednesday's practice. Both wideouts will have two more chances to practice before Sunday's road matchup against the Rams.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Out-snapped by rookie

    Swain failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Texans. He also rushed once for three yards and returned two punts for 31 yards.

    Swain had been losing ground to rookie second-round pick Dee Eskridge for the last few weeks, and he finally was out-snapped 28-25 by Eskridge this week. However, Eskridge didn't make any more of an impact than Swain did, getting targeted just once as well and failing to haul it in. With the duo seemingly splitting time as the No. 3 receiver, there's not much room for fantasy production behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Catches three passes

    Swain caught all three targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

    Swain was targeted in the back of the end zone in the second quarter, but he didn't catch the pass and instead drew a pass interference penalty. Adrian Peterson scored on the next play. Swain recorded a 45 percent snap share and is seemingly losing some ground to rookie second-round pick Dee Eskridge (31 percent), who posted three receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Snares touchdown in loss

    Swain caught one pass on two targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

    Swain failed to catch a pass in the previous three games, but he managed to haul in his third touchdown of the season in Week 12. The second-year receiver didn't cede much ground to rookie Dee Eskridge, as Swain logged a 66 percent snap share compared to Eskridge's 28 percent. Still, Swain shouldn't be considered a weekly fantasy option as long as DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are healthy. Through 11 games, Swain has 17 receptions for 201 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Third straight catchless week

    Swain failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Cardinals.

    Swain was on the field for 20 of 49 offensive snaps (37 percent). The second-year pro failed to haul in a pass for a third straight week, though Russell Wilson only completed 14 passes in Week 11. Swain's role in this offense isn't guaranteed, as Dee Eskridge -- who played 11 snaps Sunday -- could be in the conversation for more opportunities.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: No catches in loss

    Swain didn't catch any of his three targets during Sunday's 17-0 loss to the Packers.

    Swain handled 41 of 61 offensive snaps (67 percent) but failed to catch a pass for the second straight week. The second-year receiver has handled at least 62 percent of the snaps in seven of the last eight games. Rookie second-round pick Dee Eskridge returned to the lineup Sunday after dealing with a concussion and logged just five offensive snaps, and he's the only credible threat to Swain's No. 3 receiver role. Regardless, that role hasn't paid off for fantasy purposes, as DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett command a lion's share of the targets.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: No targets in win

    Swain wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-7 win over the Jaguars.

    Swain logged 37 offensive snaps, as Geno Smith utilized a narrow passing tree with Tyler Lockett (12) and DK Metcalf (six) receiving a bulk of the targets. The 2020 sixth-round pick scored twice through the first four weeks of the season, but he has recorded just 44 yards and no touchdowns over the past four games. He'll continue to be an inconsistent fantasy option when the Seahawks return from their bye for a Week 10 matchup against the Packers.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Five touches in loss

    Swain had four receptions (six targets) for 39 yards and one carry for eight yards in Monday's 13-10 loss to New Orleans.

    Swain turned in a solid all-around effort after struggling mightily over his last two contests. DK Metcalf (two receptions on five targets) drew the tough matchup against shutdown corner Marshon Lattimore, which likely resulted in the season-high six targets for Swain. The 22-year-old doesn't provide enough upside to warrant fantasy consideration against the Jaguars next week.

  • Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Tough sledding in loss

    Swain caught two of three targets for minus-4 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Steelers.

    Geno Smith didn't take many deep shots in the primetime matchup, and Swain couldn't do much with the pair of screen passes he hauled in. However, he did recover DK Metcalf's fumble late in the fourth quarter, giving the Seahawks' the opportunity to tie the game with a 43-yard field goal as regulation expired. Swain should remain as the No. 3 receiver in Week 7 against the Saints, but he doesn't have much upside as long as Smith is under center.
