D.K. Metcalf Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Seahawks are expected to hire Ryan Grubb as their new OC under HC Mike Macdonald, according to multiple reports. This will be Grubb's first NFL coaching job. He's been in the college ranks since 2005, most recently serving as Washington's OC for the last two seasons. Both of those Huskies teams finished top 13 in the nation in both total yards and points per game. They were especially lethal through the air, ranking first and then second in passing yards per game. Grubb joins a Seahawks squad with plenty of passing-game firepower in WRs D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. QB Geno Smith will very likely be back under center in 2024. We'll see if Seattle reunites Grubb with QB Michael Penix, who was at the helm for Washington the last two years.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Steelers. He missed the final two practices of the week, but we never sensed any concern about his availability for this one. Metcalf seems safe to keep in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (back) is expected to play vs. the Steelers today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Metcalf missed the final two practices of the week, but HC Pete Carroll didn't express any concern about his availability for this one on Friday. Metcalf seems safe to keep in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (back) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Steelers. He wasn’t on the injury report on Wednesday but then missed the final two practices of the week. HC Pete Carroll said Friday that he expects Metcalf to play, but we’ll look for further updates on his status. We won’t get Seattle’s inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET on Sunday.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf was added to the injury report and did not practice on Thursday with a back issue. We'll look for more details on his status and check to see how he's listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday that he expects QB Geno Smith (groin) to have a full week of practice and play vs. the Titans on Sunday. Smith appeared on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Eagles but suffered a setback during the week. So he's not a lock to be out there this weekend. But we are projecting it to be Smith under center for the Seahawks in Nashville.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Eagles. It’s a surprise after multiple reports over the last 30 hours had Smith unlikely to play. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer said yesterday that Smith suffered a setback at some point this week. It’s safe to assume that he’ll be operating at well less than 100% tonight, making him a high-risk fantasy play.

Update: The Seahawks have not yet announced who will start tonight's game. Smith, QB Drew Lock, and QB Sean Mannion are all active tonight. That suggests at least some concern about Smith's ability to make it through the game, assuming he starts. We'll let you know if we hear who's starting before kickoff.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) is a "long shot" to play against the Eagles tonight. FOX Sports' Jay Glazer had a similar report just before the 1 pm ET games kicked off on Sunday. Smith hasn't been ruled out yet, but "he's gotta improve a lot from now until game time to be able to play," per Rapoport. It'll be QB Drew Lock under center for Seattle if Smith is out. Lock played well vs. the 49ers last week, throwing for 269 yards, two TDs, and two INTs on a 71% completion rate and 8.7 yards per attempt. But he also has three seasons of underwhelming play for the Broncos on his resume. Lock would certainly add some downside to Seattle's offense tonight.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Seahawks QB Geno Smith aggravated his groin injury and now has an "uphill battle" to play vs. the Eagles on Monday night. It sounds like we should expect QB Drew Lock to start that one. We're updating Seattle projections now.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) won't play vs. the 49ers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Smith suffered what ESPN's Adam Schefter termed a two-week groin injury in Thursday's practice. We'll see if Smith can make it back for next Monday night's game vs. the Eagles. QB Drew Lock starts today for the first time since 2021. He's a significant downgrade from Smith for Seattle's pass catchers.

Update: Smith is officially INACTIVE.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) is "trending in the wrong direction" for this afternoon's game vs. the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team will wait until pregame warmups before making a final decision on Smith's status, but we're now projecting QB Drew Lock to get the start, which lowered all three Seahawks WRs in the Week 14 Rankings. We'll get Seattle's inactives a little after 2:30 pm ET.

The Seahawks are not expected to decide on QB Geno Smith's status for today's game vs. the 49ers until pregame warmups, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Smith suffered what's considered a two-week groin injury in Thursday's practice, per Schefter. "The Seahawks sounded guarded and uncertain Saturday night after they arrived in San Francisco," Schefter writes. "As tough as Smith is, they know there's a real possibility they could be without him Sunday." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has a similar report, saying Smith's status is "up in the air" and that QB Drew Lock is "preparing to start." We won't get Seattle's inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET for this 4:05 kickoff. At this point, we're working under the assumption that it'll be Lock at QB today. That's bad news for the Seahawks skill-position players, particularly the WRs.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) remains a game-time decision for Sunday's meeting with the 49ers, according to insider Jordan Schultz. Smith "will try and play in what's become a hugely important matchup for Seattle," Schultz adds. If he's a true game-time call, though, we won't know if Smith is playing until Seattle's inactives come out a little after 2:30 pm ET. QB Drew Lock will start if Smith can't -- and would be a significant downgrade for WRs D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the 49ers. He injured his groin on Thursday and then did not practice on Friday. HC Pete Carroll was non-committal on Smith’s availability, saying they’ll take the decision up to game time. QB Drew Lock will get the start against San Francisco if Smith is out. That’d be a significant downgrade for the offense.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf single-handedly won fantasy matchups on Thursday night with a massive 6-134-3 outing. He got going on Seattle's very first possession when he split the seam between two Cowboys defenders and raced to the end zone for a 73-yard score. Metcalf hit 22.23 mph on the play, per Next Gen Stats -- the fastest speed by a ball carrier this season, and flat-out ridiculous for a 235-pounder. Metcalf's other two TDs came from one and three yards out. It was a much-needed scoring binge from a guy who had just three TDs on 43 receptions (7.0%) over his first 10 games. D.K. drew eight targets vs. Dallas, giving him 38 total targets on a 24.5% share over his last four games. Don't expect another outing like this the rest of the way, but Metcalf should stay glued into fantasy lineups going forward. Not only has the volume been strong, but he also gets the single easiest WR schedule from Weeks 14 through 17.
