Metcalf caught four of five targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 32-28 win over the Browns.
Metcalf trailed only Tyler Lockett (75) in receiving yards, but he made a major impact with a first down on each of his catches. The rookie could have increased responsibilities moving forward, as the Seahawks fear Will Dissly suffered a torn Achilles, according to John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site. Metcalf already leads the team with seven red-zone targets, and he has the frame (6-4, 229) to absorb the ones left behind by Dissly, who has four touchdowns and five red-zone targets this season.
Metcalf caught two of three targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams.
Metcalf turned up his well-advertised burners in the second quarter to blow past Marcus Peters and haul in a 40-yard touchdown pass. The rookie was only targeted two other times, but that's what fantasy gamers expect with a boom-or-bust play like Metcalf. Through five games, he has just 12 receptions and a whopping 22.3 yards per catch.
Metcalf caught one of four targets for six yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Cardinals.
Metcalf's been on a slow decline since his four-catch, 89-yard season debut, making one less reception each week until he was left with just one in this outing. Russell Wilson only threw 28 times in this contest -- a hefty decrease from recording 85 attempts between Weeks 2 and 3 -- and Metcalf still matched Tyler Lockett in targets. The shine may be wearing off for the rookie, but he still is the team's No. 2 wideout. Metcalf has a chance to bounce back in Thursday night's game versus the Rams, who were just lit up for 55 points by the Buccaneers.
Metcalf caught two of six targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Saints.
Metcalf made a spectacular 54-yard catch as time ran out in the first half, saving his day from becoming a complete fantasy dud. The rookie second-round pick is still tied with Jaron Brown for fourth on the team in targets behind Tyler Lockett (14) and Will Dissly (seven). Metcalf will look to capitalize on the opportunities better in Week 4's contest against the Cardinals' poor pass defense.
Metcalf hauled in three of seven targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-26 win over the Steelers.
Metcalf's seven targets were second only to WR Tyler Lockett (12), and his 28-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter went down as the game-winning score. The rookie wideout damaged his own production with an offensive pass interference call for the second straight game, but he has still been a fantasy-viable option in both games. The Seahawks should have to pass often again in Week 3 versus the Saints, so look for Metcalf to maintain his impressive momentum.
Metcalf caught four of six targets for 89 yards in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Bengals.
Russell Wilson only targeted two wide receivers -- Metcalf and Tyler Lockett -- in this game, and Lockett received just two targets. Metcalf displayed his deep abilities by hauling in a 42-yard pass in the second quarter, setting up Chris Carson's 10-yard touchdown reception. He also made an acrobatic 25-yard catch on third down to set up Lockett's game-winning score in the fourth quarter. Lockett wasn't a target hog last year -- he averaged 4.4 targets per game -- so it's not irrational to think Metcalf could lead the team in targets this year. His upside makes him worth a pickup in fantasy leagues where he's available, but starting him at anything but a flex position is risky in Week 2 against the Steelers.
Metcalf (knee) practiced fully Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Earlier Thursday, Metcalf relayed to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com that he feels "100 percent" just 19 days removed from undergoing minor surgery on his right knee. With his health not in question, Metcalf will turn his focus to Sunday's game versus the Bengals, when he may be working on a limited snap count to ease him back into the fray.
Metcalf (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Two days removed from coach Pete Carroll saying Metcalf "looked great" at practice, the rookie's level of health is more clear. The wideout likely has some work to do to gain clearance from the Seahawks' medical staff after undergoing minor right knee surgery in mid-August. Metcalf's activity level Thursday and Friday could provide a better sense of his odds to suit up Sunday versus the Bengals.
Coach Pete Carroll said Metcalf (knee) will practice Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
After Carroll relayed that Metcalf "looked great" during Monday's session, the rookie's participation Wednesday isn't a surprise. More news regarding Metcalf's outlook for Sunday's season opener against the Bengals will come later Wednesday, when the Seahawks reveal the extent of the wideout's involvement in their first official practice of the week. If he progresses to active status Week 1, Metcalf likely would be in store for a limited snap count.
Coach Pete Carroll said Metcalf (knee) "looked great" at Monday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Metcalf is about two weeks removed from undergoing surgery on his right knee. With an expectation that he may recover in time to make an appearance Week 1, his activity level Monday is a good sign for his ability to return. That said, the Seahawks aren't required to release an injury report until Wednesday, so his listing there will be a better indicator of his odds to get back.
Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that the Seahawks are in "wait-and-see" mode with regard to Metcalf's (knee) availability for the Week 1 matchup with the Bengals, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "It really is an assessment every day," Carroll said of the rookie wideout. "He really feels pretty comfortable right now. He doesn't have any swelling and all that, so he doesn't have hindrances that could have shown up. So it just depends on how he tolerates it."
Though Carroll's words are somewhat encouraging, more clarity on Metcalf's status probably won't come until next week's practices, when the Seahawks will have to release official injury reports. With fellow receiver David Moore (shoulder) likely sidelined to start the season, Metcalf could see a decent amount of playing time out of the gate once he's up to speed.
Metcalf (knee) still hopes to play in the Seahawks' regular-season opener, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
With that in mind, the rookie wideout is a candidate to ramp up his on-field activities this week. Though it's no lock he'll be ready for Week 1 action, if he is, David Moore's shoulder injury could pave the way for Metcalf -- health permitting -- to see a decent amount of playing time out of the gate this season.
Metcalf (knee) doesn't have any swelling from his Tuesday surgery, putting him on track for a return to physical activity next week, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Metcalf may not be ready to practice with teammates, but it sounds like he'll at least be cleared for some individual work. Meanwhile, fellow Seahawks wideout David Moore (shoulder) won't be ready for the start of the regular season, leaving Metcalf with a somewhat easier path to snaps. The rookie second-round pick appears on track to play at some point in September even if he isn't quite ready for Week 1.
Coach Pete Carroll labeled Metcalf (knee) as week-to-week after the wideout recently underwent "minimal surgery" with "minimal findings," Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Though there's not yet a specific timetable for the rookie's return, Carroll optimistically noted that he didn't "have any concern that [Metcalf] won't get back soon." At this stage, Metcalf doesn't look like he'll be ready to go for the Sept. 8 regular-season opener versus the Bengals, though his absence may not stretch much longer beyond that if he progresses as Carroll anticipates. For however long Metcalf is out, Jaron Brown and David Moore should see added opportunities in the Seattle offense alongside top wideout Tyler Lockett.
Coach Pete Carroll said Metcalf could return from knee surgery in time to play Week 1, ESPN.com's Brady Henderson reports.
Carroll is notoriously optimistic with injury timelines, but this at least provides another hint that Metcalf's knee injury isn't too serious. He was held out of Sunday's preseason loss to the Vikings, with the expectation of having a minor surgery in the coming days. For the time being, Jaron Brown and David Moore figure to get most of the first-team wideout reps alongside Tyler Lockett during practice and the third preseason game. Despite what Carroll said Sunday, the timing of Metcalf's surgery will make it tricky for the second-round pick to return for Week 1.
Metcalf will have surgery on his injured knee, but coach Pete Carroll doesn't think he'll be out very long, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
Metcalf didn't suit up for Sunday's preseason game in Minnesota due to a sore leg, but not much is known about the injury. While Carroll's outlook makes it seem minor, it's always best to be cautious any time surgery is involved.
Metcalf won't suit up for Sunday's preseason game in Minnesota due to a sore leg, Ben Arthur of SeattlePI reports.
Metcalf's injury doesn't sound too serious, but the 64th overall selection from the 2019 draft will miss what could have been a valuable developmental experience. He'll hope to heal up by the time the Seahawks face the Chargers in their third preseason game.
Metcalf brought in one of four targets for eight yards in the Seahawks' 22-14 preseason win over the Broncos on Thursday.
The 2019 second-round pick wasn't overly efficient, but the good news was he was able to get through his participation in the contest without any setbacks to his previously strained oblique. Metcalf should get a solid amount of run over the next pair of preseason contests as well in preparation for what could be the No. 2 receiver role alongside de facto No. 1 wideout Tyler Lockett.
Metcalf (oblique) participated in Tuesday's scrimmage without limitations and is expected to play in Thursday's preseason game versus the Broncos, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.
Metcalf strained his oblique in practice last week and was limited to individual drills until Tuesday's team scrimmage when he worked at full speed. The rookie second-round pick made contested catches against the Seahawks' first-team secondary during the scrimmage, proving he should be ready to showcase his skills against the Broncos. Fantasy owners should be interested in Metcalf's NFL debut, considering his athleticism and build give him a ceiling of Calvin Johnson. However, the question marks about his route-running give him a more modest projection.
Coach Pete Carroll is unsure whether Metcalf (oblique) will be available for Thursday's preseason game against the Broncos, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports.
After Metcalf missed Saturday's scrimmage to tend to an oblique strain, there was hope that he would return to action Monday, but the rookie wideout remained on the sidelines. Carroll said the Seahawks will take a "wait-and-see" approach with Metcalf, who opened camp working with the first-team offense in two-wide sets. Metcalf seems poised to receive a portion of the targets yielded by the retired Doug Baldwin, but he'll have to compete with David Moore, Jaron Brown and 2019 fourth-rounder Gary Jennings for reps behind No. 1 option Tyler Lockett.
