Player Outlook
After the departure of Russell Wilson, Metcalf is now an upside No. 3 wide receiver who should not be drafted before Round 5 in PPR leagues. Metcalf had 14 catches for 197 yards and three touchdowns in the three games started by Geno Smith last year, which give some hope that he could be a solid No. 2 wide receiver or more, but 42% of those yards came on one play where the cornerback fell down, so you shouldn't put too much into it. In Dynasty leagues, Metcalf remains a top-10 receiver who could be drafted as early as Round 2 in a start-up draft. The expectation should be that he'll have a better quarterback in 2023.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Doesn't play in preseason opener

    Metcalf didn't play during the Seahawks' 32-25 preseason loss to the Steelers on Saturday. Metcalf signed a three-year extension with Seattle in late July, but he was held off the field during Saturday's preseason opener since the Seahawks elected to rest some of their starters. It's not yet clear whether the 24-year-old will see the field at all during the preseason, but his fantasy potential in 2022 is somewhat dependent on the play of Geno Smith or Drew Lock after Russell Wilson was traded to Denver during the offseason.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Signs three-year extension

    Metcalf has agreed to terms on a three-year, $72 million extension with the Seahawks, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Per the report, the wideout's deal includes $58.2 million guaranteed, with a $30 million signing bonus. With coach Pete Carroll having noted Wednesday that Metcalf -- who is bouncing back from a foot injury -- had passed his physical, look for the 2019 second-rounder to return to practice in short order. Heading into the 2022 season, Metcalf and Tyler Lockett remain entrenched as Seattle's top wideouts, but with Russell Wilson no longer in the mix, the duo are in line to be catching passes from either Geno Smith or Drew Lock come Week 1.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Moves past foot issue

    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged Wednesday that Metcalf's offseason foot surgery isn't the reason the wideout isn't participating in the team's early training camp practices, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Per Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle, Metcalf has indeed passed his physical, but for now he's sitting out practice while he and the team look to work out a new contract. Carroll hinted that progresses is being made on a new deal, which suggests that Metcalf could be back on the field with his teammates before long.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Not practicing yet

    Metcalf (foot) is present at Wednesday's practice but isn't participating, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. The Seahawks' decision to keep Metcalf off the active/PUP list suggests he has a chance to practice in some capacity during the early part of training camp. No setbacks have been reported since his foot surgery in March, with the bigger issue for fantasy being a poor quarterback situation in Seattle.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Reports for training camp

    Metcalf (foot) was present for the first day of Seattle's training camp Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports. Metcalf skipped mandatory minicamp in June, and there had been some speculation that he would hold out for a new contract, but his appearance at training camp suggests the star wide receiver will not be holding out. It isn't clear whether he will be able to practice with the team immediately, as Metcalf has been recovering from foot surgery. Metcalf wasn't among the initial wave of Seahawks placed on the active/PUP list, which likely indicates that he isn't expected to miss much, if any, practice time.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Not present for minicamp

    Metcalf (foot) isn't present for the start of Seahawks' mandatory minicamp, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Rapoport adds that Metcalf continues to rehab from a surgically repaired left foot in Los Angeles while Seattle begins mandatory minicamp. The star wideout is entering the final year of his rookie deal and may be displeased with the lack of an extension, but he did take part in voluntary workouts in May. Regardless, even if he was present this week, Metcalf likely wouldn't be able to practice anyway, so the ramifications of his absence remain unclear at this point.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Ditches walking boot

    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll confirmed Saturday that Metcalf no longer is using a walking boot to protect his surgically repaired left foot, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports. Carroll also noted that Metcalf has resumed running, though presumably not yet at 100 percent after he underwent foot surgery in February. The 24-year-old is expected to continue his rehab into the spring, so he may not be fully cleared before OTAs come to an end. Metcalf should be at or near full strength by training camp in late July, if not minicamp in mid-June, when he and Tyler Lockett will headline a new-look Seattle passing game that will be helmed by a yet-to-be-determined starter following Russell Wilson's move to Denver earlier in the offseason. The Seahawks didn't add to the position group through the draft over the weekend, tentatively leaving Drew Lock, Geno Smith and Jacob Eason to compete for the starting job.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: No extension talks yet

    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks haven't directly addressed the issue of a new contract for Metcalf, who showed up for the start of the voluntary offseason program while continuing his rehab from foot surgery, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. It wouldn't have been a surprise if Metcalf hadn't reported, considering he's rehabbing from surgery and oft-mentioned in trade rumors as he enters the final year of his rookie contract. He'll likely miss spring practices after foot surgery this winter, but the 24-year-old wideout should be ready for training camp and Week 1

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Extension not yet being discussed

    Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday, when asked about a potential contract extension for Metcalf (foot), that "we have not gotten to that topic yet specifically because we've got so many other things going on," Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Metcalf is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and with quarterback Russell Wilson having been traded to the Broncos, Seattle's roster is facing a transition to a new era. Carroll did say the Seahawks "intend for [Metcalf] to be with us" for the long term, but at least in the early stages of the offseason, it appears extending the 2019 second-round pick hasn't ranked atop the team's list of priorities. Per Condotta, Carroll suggested that extensions will be dealt with after the free agency period has completely run its course. For the time being Drew Lock stands atop the depth chart at QB, but it seems likely that Seattle will add competition for the starting job via a trade, free agency, or in April's draft, potentially with the ninth overall pick.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: QB downgrade in contract year

    Metcalf (foot) will likely have a downgrade at quarterback in 2022 after the Seahawks traded Russell Wilson to the Broncos on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Metcalf took a step back last year but still managed to post a 75-967-12 line through 17 games despite dealing with a lingering foot injury for most of the season. Head coach Pete Carroll said last week that Metcalf underwent a minor offseason procedure in February to remove a screw from his left foot, but the 24-year-old wideout should be good to go for training camp, if not OTAs. The bigger concern is the changing of the guard at quarterback and the Seahawks' commitment to a rebuild. Metcalf had a strong connection with Wilson, recording 3,170 receiving yards and 29 touchdowns through his first three NFL seasons. Now, Drew Lock -- who has a career 6.7 YPA and a 59.3 completion percentage -- is seemingly the top QB in Seattle for now, though the Seahawks will likely pick a QB in the draft or bring one in via trade or free agency. Metcalf may have the pedigree to overcome a severe downgrade at QB, but this likely isn't the type of turbulence he wanted in his contract season.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Foot procedure clarified

    Coach Pete Carroll clarified Wednesday that Metcalf underwent a minor offseason procedure to remove a screw from his left foot, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports. "They fixed a surgery that he had on his foot a couple of years back," Carroll noted of the wideout, whose practice reps were managed last season as he dealt with a lingering foot issue. "They just had to go in there and adjust some stuff in his foot. It bothered him all year long." Though the report doesn't specify when the 2019 second-rounder will be able work fully on the field, the hope is that by addressing the issue, Metcalf will be able to practice on a regular basis this coming season. Despite his foot woes, Metcalf played all 17 of Seattle's games last season en route to catching 75 of his 129 targets for 967 yards and career-high 12 TDs. The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder is set to continue to combine with Tyler Lockett in 2022 to form a talented 1-2 punch atop the team's wideout depth chart.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Recovering from foot surgery

    Metcalf recently had surgery to remove a screw from his left foot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Metcalf told Bleacher Report's Taylor Rooks that he had surgery shortly after the conclusion of the 2021 season and was on track to conclude his rehab process around mid-March. While he didn't specify, it's likely the screw he had removed in January initially was inserted back in 2016 when the wideout suffered a season-ending foot injury at Ole Miss. He missed a lot of practice time in 2021 with the left foot popping up as an issue again, but Metcalf doesn't think it had too much impact on his performance, nor does he sound especially worried about the rehab process impacting his preparation for 2022. He did have a disappointing 2021 campaign by most standards, albeit with a dozen touchdowns to soften the blow of 336 fewer receiving yards than the previous year.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Inefficient with 11 targets

    Metcalf caught five passes for 58 yards on 11 targets against Arizona on Sunday. Metcalf generally struggled against the Cardinals the last two years while fellow wideout Tyler Lockett posted big numbers in that same span, so it seems safe to say that there's something in Arizona's defensive approach that makes things more difficult for Metcalf. The entire 2021 season has been more difficult for Metcalf, who played a bit nicked up at several points and otherwise dealt with both injury and general dysfunction at quarterback this year. He finishes with 75 receptions for 967 yards and 12 touchdowns on 129 targets, which is a catch rate of 58.1 percent at 7.5 yards per target -- a huge dropoff from his 2020 season, when he caught 64.3 percent of his targets at 10.1 yards per target. Despite the difficulties of 2021, Metcalf is still clearly a unique talent capable of elite fantasy production. Whether he's in a good spot to do so in 2022 will depend on what Seattle does with its quarterback and coaching situations. It probably wouldn't be good for Metcalf if Russell Wilson left Seattle, but a coaching change could bring a more favorable system to the offense. Metcalf's situation is an interesting one to watch.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Full practice Thursday

    Metcalf (foot) practiced in full Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. After his typical practice limitations to begin the week, Metcalf was able to handle every rep Thursday. His foot injury hasn't impacted his ability to play on game days, and he's back to being a TD fiend, as evidenced by four scores on his eight catches over the last two contests.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Scores three touchdowns

    Metcalf caught six passes for 63 yards and three touchdowns on nine targets against Detroit on Sunday. The Detroit defense just didn't have the secondary personnel to counter the size/speed threat posed by Metcalf, and he was the main pass-catching beneficiary on a day when the Seahawks scored 51 points. Metcalf's fantasy investors generally needed a game like this a month or two ago, but it's clear that his recent struggles were tied to Russell Wilson's finger injury. A formidable Arizona defense awaits in Week 18.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Puts in full practice Thursday

    Metcalf (foot) practiced fully Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. After kicking off Week 17 prep with no on-field reps Wednesday, Metcalf handled all of them one day later. His maintenance plan has allowed him to suit up for every game this season, but the results have been tepid since the Seahawks' Week 9 bye. Over the last seven contests, Metcalf has put together a modest 25-266-1 line on 53 targets.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: No practice Wednesday

    Metcalf (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. As he has for much of the season, Metcalf is kicking off Week 17 prep with practice limitations. The trend may continue into Thursday and even Friday, but he likely isn't in danger of missing the first game of his three-year career Sunday against the Lions. In seven outings since Russell Wilson returned to the lineup, Metcalf has hauled in just 25 of 53 targets for 266 yards. Fortunately for his managers, he scored his first touchdown since Week 8 this past Sunday versus the Bears.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Returns to end zone Sunday

    Metcalf caught two of five targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Bears. It was another low-volume performance for Metcalf, but he did manage to score his first TD since Week 8 by hauling in a 41-yard strike from Russell Wilson in the first quarter. Metcalf hasn't topped 60 receiving yards in eight straight games, giving him little momentum heading into a Week 17 clash with the Lions, but he needs 146 yards over the Seahawks' last two contests for his second straight 1,000-yard season.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: No injury designation

    Metcalf (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bears, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. As expected, with Metcalf limited by the injury in practice but still handling full workloads each Sunday. While his weekly ceiling remains sky-high, Metcalf now is at six consecutive games with no touchdown and 60 yards or less.

  • Seahawks' DK Metcalf: Another limited practice

    Metcalf (foot) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Metcalf has opened Week 16 prep with back-to-back capped sessions. Practice limitations have become the norm for the third-year wide receiver since he sustained a foot injury sometime around Week 4. He still managed a 93 percent share of offensive snaps Tuesday against the Rams en route to 12 targets, but those numbers could take a hit with the Seahawks activating Tyler Lockett (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. No matter, Russell Wilson seems poised to have Lockett and Metcalf at his disposal Sunday versus the Bears, assuming the latter is available to the Seahawks offense.
