View WR Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Metcalf caught 75 of 129 targets for 967 yards and 12 TDs in 17 games last year.
  • He finished 15th among WRs in PPR points and 11th in non-PPR.
  • That followed a PPR WR6 and non-PPR WR5 finish in 2020.
  • Metcalf saw an identical 129 targets in 2020 – but his catch rate dropped from 64.3% to 58.1% last year; his yards per catch from 15.7 to 12.9.
  • Metcalf earned an 82.5 Pro Football Focus receiving grade in each of the last 2 seasons. That ranked 16th among 90 qualifying WRs in 2020 and 12th among 90 WRs last year.
  • QB Russell Wilson’s injury was the primary reason for the dip in Metcalf’s efficiency.
    • Metcalf posted a 65.8% catch rate and 15.3 yards per catch over the first 5 games of the season.
    • Over the final 11 – after Wilson’s finger injury – Metcalf caught 54.9% of his targets and averaged 11.7 yards per catch.
  • Wilson was traded to Denver in March, leaving Seattle with QBs Drew Lock and Geno Smith.
  • Metcalf has only played 3 career games without Wilson. They came last year with Geno Smith. Metcalf’s lines in those games:
    • 6-58-0 (7 targets)
    • 2-96-1 (5 targets)
    • 6-43-2 (6 targets)
  • OC Shane Waldron returns for his 2nd season with the Seahawks.
    • The 2021 Seahawks ranked:
      • 32nd in plays
      • 24th in situation-neutral pass rate
      • 31st in pass attempts
  • With the question mark at QB, expect this to again be a run-heavy offense in 2022.
  • 7 of the team’s top 8 target-getters from last year return, with the only change coming at TE, where Noah Fant replaces Gerald Everett.
  • WR Tyler Lockett tallied 107 targets to Metcalf’s 117 in their 16 games together last year.
  • Metcalf out-targeted Lockett 32 to 24 in the red zone and 14 to 9 in the end zone.
  • Lockett finished just behind Metcalf in PFF receiving grade and beat Metcalf in yards per route run (2.35 to 1.94).
  • Metcalf had foot surgery in February to remove a screw from a previous procedure. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the foot bothered Metcalf throughout last season. He had resumed running by April.
  • Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Metcalf was the subject of trade rumors this offseason. Those have quieted, but Metcalf skipped mandatory OTAs as he looks for a contract extension. It’ll be a situation to monitor this summer.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

There are plenty of concerns with Metcalf heading into 2022 – chief among them the massive QB downgrade from Russell Wilson to Drew Lock/Geno Smith. Metcalf is also recovering from February foot surgery and might be a holdout risk as he seeks a new contract.

But we’re still talking about a 24-year-old who finished as a top-6 fantasy WR in 2020 and top-15 last year. Metcalf sits a bit lower than that in our 2022 rankings. But if he slides in your fantasy draft, don’t be scared to take the discount.

11:00pm EDT 9/26/22

Big passing day in loss

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf ended Week 1 with 7 grabs for 36 yards on a team-high 7 targets. Not exactly the type of line you’d expect from Metcalf, right? The burner didn’t see any downfield targets from Geno Smith, but he did show his strong hands with a few catches in tight coverage. Monday also presented a tough matchup with rising star Patrick Surtain Jr. Sunday turns up a road matchup with the 49ers.

The Seahawks and WR D.K. Metcalf agreed to a 3-year extension worth $72 million, with $52.8 million of that guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. It ends the brief hold-in for the 24-year-old wideout and puts him under contract through 2025.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll confirmed to reporters after practice Wednesday that WR D.K. Metcalf is sitting out practices in hopes of landing a contract extension -- and not because of lingering effects from his winter foot surgery. "We are right there," Carroll said, referring to the negotiations. We'll keep an eye on Metcalf's status.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf reported for the start of training camp on Tuesday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. "It’s unclear whether Metcalf will practice with the team, but his appearance at camp can be considered a positive," Fowler adds. Metcalf skipped June minicamp as he angles for a new contract. But it doesn't look like he's planning to sit out regular-season games.

Dynasty Write-up
Metcalf's 3rd season couldn't have gone much worse, with him playing through a foot injury and Russell Wilson losing 3 games (as well as struggling through several others). The biggest question facing Metcalf going forward will be who's throwing him passes. We're not betting on Drew Lock as a multi-year answer -- and maybe not even the 2022 starter. We are still willing to bet, however, on this stud athlete who has gone from "injury prone" in college to missing nary a game through his 1st 3 NFL campaigns.
