2020 Fantasy Outlook
A poor showing in the combine agility drills (three-cone drill and short shuttle) dinged Metcalf's draft stock, and the Seahawks wisely bought low with the 64th overall pick in last year's draft. Metcalf's numbers were solid enough - 15.5 YPC, 9.0 YPT and four catches of 40-plus on only 100 targets - but they don't include the wild-card game when he torched the Eagles for 160 yards and a score. What stands out most about Metcalf is his freakish size/speed combination - think Terrell Owens with more speed, or Julio Jones with more muscle. At 6-4, 229, and running a 4.33 40, Metcalf is off the charts athletically, and his 40.5-inch vertical leap and 134-inch broad jump show his explosiveness. He'll never be the quick-in-and-out-of-breaks slot type, but that hardly matters when you can run past, jump above and overpower the unlucky defender who happens to be assigned to you. Metcalf is also ideally built for red-zone work - 18 targets last season - and likely will get more work from in close during his second season. It also helps to be paired with one of the league's elite quarterbacks in Russell Wilson, who routinely makes downfield throws after escaping the pocket, though it hurts that the Seahawks are so run-heavy (23rd in pass attempts). Moreover, Tyler Lockett is still around as a co-No. 1, and the Seahawks acquired tight end Greg Olsen this offseason. Read Past Outlooks

Building chemistry with Russ
WRSeattle Seahawks
August 7, 2020
Metcalf spent a lot of time working out with Russell Wilson during the offseason, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Metcalf spent his offseason in good company, also working with 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman and new teammate Greg Olsen. The second-year pro expects to take a big step forward, following a rookie campaign where he put up a 58-900-7 receiving line in the regular season and an 11-219-1 line in two playoff games. His 7.0 percent drop rate was 17th worst among qualified wide receivers, and Metcalf pointed to the drops as a clear area for improvement in 2020. He and Tyler Lockett could essentially operate as co-No. 1s this season, accounting for a large chunk of the receiving production in a Seattle offense that typically stays committed to the run.

30 days ago
The Brandin Cooks trade has mostly been discussed from the Texans' perspective, but the biggest fantasy impact could be a career high in targets for Robert Woods.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Seahawks under offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer rarely throw - they were last with 427 passing attempts last year - but someone has to receive those targets. With Doug Baldwin retiring and returning top receiver Tyler Lockett seeing only 70 targets last year, Metcalf could step into a large role right away. At 6-3, 228, and with 4.33 speed, he's a freak in the Julio Jones mold, a rare athlete at the position you'll see once every five years. But his times in the agility drills at the combine were terrible, and it's possible that caused him to slip to the back of the second round. Look for Lockett to see most of his work in the slot, and Metcalf to vie for targets on the outside, both down the field and in the red zone. David Moore is still around, however, and the team used its fourth-round pick on Gary Jennings, another athletic wideout who was more productive than Metcalf in college.
