Seahawks WR D’Wayne Eskridge (concussion) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. Freddie Swain should again operate as Seattle’s #3 WR behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Seahawks WR D’Wayne Eskridge (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Titans. The rookie played just 12 snaps in the opener, so there’s minimal fantasy impact here.

Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge sustained a concussion in Sunday's opener vs. the Colts, HC Pete Carroll said afterward. Eskridge operated as Seattle's #4 WR in that one, catching his only target for 6 yards and carrying twice for 22 yards. He's off the redraft radar for now.

Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge (toe) was activated from the PUP list and made his training camp debut on Tuesday. The rookie also missed minicamp with this toe injury, so he has a lot of catching up to do. We'll see how much ground he can make up over the next few weeks, but Eskridge won't be an early-season fantasy option.

A foot injury has landed Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge on the active PUP list to open training camp. The rookie missed time this spring with a toe issue. It's unclear if this new injury is related. Regardless, it's a less-than-ideal start to Eskridge's pro career. He has a shot to win Seattle's #3 WR job this year but needs to get on the field.

Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge is missing minicamp with a toe injury, HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday. We don't have any other details on the injury or when Eskridge will be back. It's obviously not ideal for a rookie to be missing practice reps. It's also worth noting that Eskridge missed time with 3 separate injuries over his 5 seasons at Western Michigan. We'll see when he's able to get back on the field.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll pointed to WR D'Wayne Eskridge's versatility as 1 of the reasons the team liked him. "He definitely is a guy, as you can tell in the highlights that you have seen, that we can hand him the football, we can flip it to him, we can do things with him behind the line of scrimmage," Carroll said. "He's run very effectively on reverses and stuff like that, and the returns show that as well. We were looking for a receiver that would have all of that kind of versatility and he was really an exciting one to draft." Eskridge has a clear path to #3 WR duties this season, but Seattle's 3rd WR has tallied just 53, 34 and 47 targets the past 3 seasons. So Eskridge will need to add a bunch of value on the ground if he's going to be a fantasy factor this year.

The Seahawks took Western Michigan WR D’Wayne Eskridge in the 2nd round of the 2021 NFL Draft. One of the fastest receivers in this class, Eskridge clocked a 4.40-second 40 time at his Pro Day and routinely ran by defenders last year on his way to a 33-768-8 line in just 6 games. That came as a 23-year-old, 5th-year senior against weak MAC defenses, though. Eskridge played RB in high school and bounced between WR and CB over his first 4 seasons at Western Michigan. So while his speed and athleticism is intriguing, he’s a project. “He’s like a classic track guy playing receiver as far as the routes and the straight-line (speed) and doesn’t quite know what he’s doing,” a scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He is sudden and fast in open space, but I just don’t think he really knows how to play football that well. He’s like a backup gadget-type player.” The pick is a head-scratcher considering Seattle wants to be a run-first offense and already has WRs D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, who are signed through 2022 and 2025, respectively. Don’t bank on Eskridge being a fantasy factor this season. And we’re not excited about his long-term outlook.
