D.K. Metcalf | Seahawks WR

The Seahawks plan to move D.K. Metcalf around more in 2020.

Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer says the team has discussed how to help take the ultra-talented Metcalf to take his game to the next level in his second NFL season, and he says that the "No. 1 thing" is that they know they can move him around the formation more after he was mostly locked in at the X receiver spot as a rookie. Schottenheimer added that moving Metcalf around "will complement the things that he's already put on film," stating that it will be "an incredible, incredible advantage for us." It sounds like Seattle is extremely optimistic about Metcalf's potential to emerge into one of the top playmakers in football, and he'll be an interesting player to watch in 2020 after recording 900 yards and seven touchdowns during his first NFL regular season.

D.K. Metcalf scores first career touchdown in Week 2.

Metcalf caught three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown, with the score coming on a 28-yard go route on a dime from Russell Wilson. The second-round rookie has looked like a beast through two games, and it helps having someone like Wilson giving him opportunities to make plays down the field. Metcalf is averaging 21.4 yards per reception for the 2-0 Seahawks, but Week 3 versus New Orleans should be a tougher matchup. Dynasty owners in particular should be confident that Metcalf's game is translating well to the NFL after some had concerns that he was just a physical specimen that might not be able to play receiver in the league at a high level.

D.K. Metcalf leads the Seahawks in Week 1 receiving.

Metcalf caught four passes for 89 yards in Seattle’s 21-20 win against the Bengals. The second-round rookie made multiple contested catches down the field, showing his ability to come up with deep balls from the rainbow-throwing Russell Wilson. Metcalf didn’t show any affects from the knee procedure he had last month, and he operated as a clear starting receiver for Seattle. Metcalf’s game matches up well with his quarterback, and both his season-long and dynasty-league outlooks appear promising. He’s on the FLEX radar next week versus the Steelers.

D.K. Metcalf (knee) says he's 100%.

The rookie receiver says he's ready to play as much as he's asked in his NFL debut this Sunday. Metcalf had a knee procedure just over two weeks ago, so it almost doesn't seem possible that he's 100% already, but he's obviously a freakish human. You can probably find a better option for your Week 1 fantasy lineup in standard-sized leagues, but Metcalf offers big-play upside against the Bengals. We'll update you if he's still listed on the final Week 1 injury report despite declaring that he's 100%.

D.K. Metcalf (knee) was officially limited in today's practice.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says they'll "wait and see" how much Metcalf plays on Sunday, but a limited practice to start the week is a good start. Metcalf is expected to be ready to go as a starter to open the year, but we'll keep you updated on his official status.

D.K. Metcalf needs knee surgery, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

The surgery is supposedly minor, but at best, it probably makes Metcalf very questionable for Week 1. While it’s notable that the rookie wore his uniform for tonight’s preseason game despite not playing, perhaps that was the team trying to be as optimistic as possible. We’ll see if Gary Jennings or someone else can step up over the next couple weeks, but David Moore should be a starter alongside Tyler Lockett to open the regular season.

The Seahawks have selected Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf with the No. 64 pick (second round) in the 2019 NFL Draft. 

Metcalf has been compared to Batman and Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown throughout the pre-draft process, so you could say the upside is pretty high here, especially at the final pick of the second round for a guy that easily could've been taken in the first round based on his measurable and upside. The biggest concern for Metcalf has been durability (last season ended with a neck injury), but in Seattle he will have a chance to emerge as an elite No. 1 receiver and has monstrous upside in fantasy leagues—and he'll benefit from playing with a quarterback with Russell Wilson, who has a beautiful deep ball and gives his receivers opportunities to make plays in contested coverage. For now, we can expect mostly a vertical route tree from Metcalf, but if he puts it all together, watch out.
