Swain will compete for the No. 3 wide receiver role after the Seahawks selected D'Wayne Eskridge in the second round of last week's draft, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
As a rookie last year, Swain produced a mere 13-159-2 line over 16 games, failing to cement himself as the No. 3 receiver. In turn, the Seahawks made a deliberate effort to fill the void last weekend, selecting Eskridge higher than any wide receiver they've taken since Paul Richardson in 2014.There are fair criticisms that Eskridge was a reach at 56th overall, but the fact that he was the Seahawks' first pick of the draft can't be discounted. The team is expected to sign a few undrafted free agents, including Florida State's Tamorrion Terry, as well. A sixth-round pick in 2020, Swain will be competing for the No. 3 job from the start of training camp onward.
Swain caught his lone target for 28 yards in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.
Swain proved his ability to catch the long ball this year, albeit in a limited sample. The rookie sixth-rounder out of Florida finished with 13 receptions (21 targets) for 159 yards and two touchdowns across 16 regular-season games, and three receptions of longer than 20 yards are included in that stat line. Swain was the clear No. 4 receiver this season and was left out of the game plan at times, but he could see a boost in usage next season if David Moore walks in free agency, though that seems unlikely.
Swain didn't catch his lone target in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.
Swain suited up for all 16 games in his rookie season, averaging 22 snaps per outing and posting a 13-159-2 line. The sixth-round pick out of Florida will enter the postseason as the clear No. 4 wide receiver behind DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and David Moore.
Swain wasn't targeted in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams.
Swain has received just 20 targets through 15 games, turning those looks into a 12-159-2 line. The rookie sixth-rounder will generate volatile production unless one of DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett or David Moore suffer an injury.
Swain caught his lone target for three yards in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington.
Swain was also targeted on a deep pass down the left sideline in the second quarter, but he failed to get his feet down in the end zone. It was an impressive display of his abilities nonetheless, as the rookie has proven to have some big-play upside this year. Swain now has a 13-159-2 line through 14 games.
Swain caught two of three targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.
The blowout nature of Sunday's game afforded Swain increased playing time, as he logged 33 snaps on offense -- his highest number since Week 3. The rookie sixth-round pick capitalized; he broke a three-game catchless streak and scored his second touchdown of the year. Swain sports a modest 12-156-2 line through 13 games.
Swain didn't catch his lone target in Sunday's 17-12 loss to the Giants.
For the sixth time in seven games, Swain finished without a reception. He did return three kicks for 66 yards, but none of his returns went farther than 25 yards. The rookie sixth-rounder is not in fantasy consideration as long as DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are healthy.
Swain wasn't targeted over 34 snaps on offense in Monday's 23-17 win over the Eagles.
For the fifth time in six games, Swain didn't catch a pass despite playing the same number of snaps as David Moore, who scored his fifth touchdown of the year Monday. Swain is still getting his footing at the NFL level as a rookie out of Florida. He's sporting a 10-134-1 line after 11 games.
Swain (foot) is active for Monday's game versus the Eagles.
David Moore (hip) is also active, meaning Swain will slot in as the No. 4 wide receiver. The rookie sixth-round pick has posted a 10-134-1 line through 10 games. He's been targeted in the end zone a few times recently, and he'll need to capitalize on those looks to offer any fantasy value Monday.
Swain (foot) is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Eagles, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
David Moore (hip) is also listed as questionable. Coach Pete Carroll said Saturday that Swain will be ready for Monday's game, but he sounded far less optimistic about Moore's chances to play. Therefore, Swain may serve as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. The rookie hasn't broken out by any measure, but Russell Wilson has been willing to target Swain in the end zone this season. That's worth some intrigue in deeper fantasy formats.
Swain caught three of four targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams.
The rookie sixth-round pick played 37 percent of the snaps on offense, his highest workload since Week 5, and he capitalized on the opportunity with a career high in yardage. He's getting some deep looks, too, especially in the end zone, proving that Russell Wilson trusts him in critical areas. That could be crucial in Thursday's game against the Cardinals if Tyler Lockett (knee) is ruled out.
Swain (foot) is active heading into Sunday's matchup against the Rams.
Limited practice sessions for Swain on Thursday and Friday kept his status for Week 10 up in the air entering Sunday morning, but the sixth-round rookie is seemingly well enough to battle through his foot issue. The Florida product had no injury problems through the first two months of the season, making eight appearances while recording a total of seven receptions, 97 yards and one touchdown for the Seahawks' high-flying offense. Swain has garnered 20 or more offensive snaps in five of his past six outings, though he's only exceeded two targets in one of those appearances.
Swain (foot) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Swain was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, and he'll carry an injury tag into the weekend for the first time this season. The rookie sixth-rounder has maintained a consistent role on offense, but he's failed to catch a pass in three straight games, operating as the clear No. 4 behind Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and David Moore. With Penny Hart (knee) also questionable, the Seahawks may need to call up a practice squad receiver to fill the void.
Swain caught two of three targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 31-23 win over the Dolphins.
Swain snagged exactly one pass in each of the first three games, but he was on Russell Wilson's radar more in Week 4. The rookie sixth-rounder nearly reeled in an end-zone target, too, but he failed to get both feet down despite an acrobatic effort. The Seahawks like Swain's potential, as he finished third among the team's wideouts by playing 27 of 63 offensive snaps (43 percent), although David Moore (3-95-1) was more productive on fewer opportunities.
Swain caught his lone target for 13 yards in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Cowboys.
Swain out-snapped David Moore (34-31) for the first time this season, but both players recorded just one reception Sunday. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf continue to be the focal points of this offense, so Swain and Moore are simply touchdown-dependent fantasy options. Their values will both take a hit once Phillip Dorsett (foot) returns, but that won't happen until Week 7 against the Vikings at the earliest.
Swain caught a 21-yard touchdown in his lone target in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Patriots.
Swain was afforded a decent workload with Phillip Dorsett (foot) still out of the lineup, and he came through, getting wide open on an underneath route and essentially walking into the end zone in the second half. The TD was more of a schemed play rather than a true feat of talent, so there's still minimal fantasy value for the rookie sixth-rounder, especially once Dorsett comes back.
Swain hauled in a 17-yard pass in Sunday's 38-25 win over the Falcons.
Swain made the final roster over Paul Richardson and 2019 seventh-round pick John Ursua, and he was immediately called upon with Phillip Dorsett (foot) sitting out. The Florida product played 16 of 62 snaps (26 percent) as the clear No. 4 receiver in Seattle. If Dorsett returns in Week 2 against the Patriots, Swain could be pushed out of the offensive gameplan.
Swain secured a spot on the Seahawks' final roster, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Swain -- a sixth-round pick in April -- just turned 22 years old in August but has four years of collegiate football at Florida under his belt. In his final season, he recorded a 38-517-7 line as the second-fiddle to Van Jefferson, who the Rams drafted in the second round. He has minimal fantasy relevance this season, as Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf should handle a bulk of the targets while Phillip Dorsett (foot) and potentially Josh Gordon (suspension) mix in.
Swain (groin) returned to practice Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Swain sustained a groin injury Monday and finally got back on the field. The rookie sixth-round pick had a solid collegiate career but is on the roster bubble, so he'll need to stay healthy to ensure he snags a roster spot in 2020.
Swain suffered a minor groin injury during Monday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Fortunately for Swain, the injury appears to be more of a tweak of lesser severity than a long-term issue following an early diagnosis. The 2020 sixth-round pick is facing a tough battle for a roster spot heading into the regular season, so the earlier he can get healthy will help his chances to make the squad.
