Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Metcalf posted an 83-1,303-10 line on 129 targets last year. He ranked 6th among WRs in both yards and TDs.
  • Metcalf finished 6th among WRs in PPR points and 5th in non-PPR.
  • He provided a nice weekly floor and ceiling.
    • Metcalf finished as a top-36 WR in 12 of 16 weeks -- tied for 3rd most.
    • He tallied 8 top-24 weeks -- tied for 8th most.
    • And he scored as a top-12 WR 4 times -- tied for 11th most.
  • That followed a 58-900-7 line and top-30 fantasy finish as a rookie in 2019.
  • Metcalf’s 458.4 PPR points over the past 2 years are the 17th most all-time by a WR in his first 2 NFL seasons. He ranks 23rd in catches, 16th in yards and 22nd in TDs.
  • Metcalf went from 37th in yards per route run and 51st in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades among 79 qualifying WRs in 2019 to 18th in yards per route run and 17th in receiving grades out of 84 qualifiers last year.
  • Metcalf’s ranks among in key usage stats last season:
    • 14th in targets
    • 3rd in air yards
    • 8th in red-zone targets
    • 6th in targets inside the 10-yard line
  • Metcalf’s production declined from the 1st to 2nd half of last season.
    • He averaged 5.4 catches, 98.5 yards and 1 TD over his first 8 games, ranking 3rd among WRs in PPR points.
    • He averaged 5 catches, 64.4 yards and .3 TDs over the final 8, ranking 22nd in PPR points.
    • That coincided with a decline in QB Russell Wilson’s play. Wilson went from a 71.0% completion rate and 8.6 yards per attempt over the first 8 games to 66.3% and 6.4 over the final 8.
  • Metcalf should be in for similar volume in 2021. Tyler Lockett, who edged Metcalf 132 to 129 in targets last year, is back. WR David Moore and his 47 targets from a year ago figure to be replaced by 2nd-round rookie WR Dwayne Eskridge. Seattle added TE Gerald Everett in free agency, but don’t expect him to eat into Metcalf’s targets.
  • The Seahawks canned OC Brian Schottenheimer this offseason and replaced him with Shane Waldron.
    • Waldron’s only OC experience came at Buckingham Browne & Nichols High School in 2011.
    • He spent the past 4 seasons as passing-game coordinator/QBs coach for the Rams under Sean McVay.
    • He also worked under Bill Belichick in New England in 2008 and 2009.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

After a super promising rookie season, Metcalf exploded for a 83-1,303-10 line and top-6 fantasy finish in 2020.

He’s in a new offense under OC Shane Waldron this season but has the same QB and should be in for similar volume. Unless Russell Wilson’s 2nd-half swoon was a sign of things to come this year, Metcalf has a good shot at another WR1 finish.

The Seahawks love what they got out of WR D.K. Metcalf as a rookie last year but believe he's capable of even more going forward. “The No. 1 thing that we know is that we can move him around and do different things with him," OC Brian Schottenheimer said. “He kind of got stuck at the ‘X’ receiver last year. This year we know we can move him around quite a bit more. There are so many more routes he can run. He’s proven he can get behind people. I just think the flexibility of moving him around and introducing some different route concepts that we can kind of get him up to speed on that will complement the things that he’s already put on film. It will be an incredible, incredible advantage for us as we head into next season.” Metcalf posted an impressive 58-900-7 line last season -- and then totaled 219 yards and a score on 11 catches in 2 playoff games. It's plenty possible that he overtakes Tyler Lockett as Seattle's top WR in 2020.
