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

Snares two scores in loss
WRSeattle Seahawks
January 9, 2021
Metcalf caught five of 11 targets for 96 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.
ANALYSIS
Metcalf was only targeted once over the first four drives, and when he was finally targeted again midway through the second quarter, Rams cornerback Darious Williams hopped in front of the pass, intercepting it and taking it the other way for six points. His fate changed on the next drive, however, as Russell Wilson scrambled left and threw a deep pass to Metcalf for a 51-yard touchdown -- the Seahawks' longest play of the day. Metcalf ended up being Wilson's top target, and he added a 12-yard touchdown reception in garbage time. It was overall an electric sophomore season for Metcalf, as he finished with 83 receptions (129 targets) for 1,303 yards -- seventh in the league -- and 10 touchdowns. Metcalf just turned 23 years old in December; there's no ceiling on his upside.

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.
