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. Read Past Outlooks

Impressing Russell Wilson
WRSeattle Seahawks
June 13, 2019
Metcalf is making a strong impression on quarterback Russell Wilson, who says the rookie has intelligence to match his physical skills, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports. "Everybody knows about [Metcalf's] ability to run and jump and catch and all that" Wilson said. "But I think more than anything else, it's his brain, how he processes information, how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent, he understands the game really well."
ANALYSIS
The Seahawks have used Tyler Lockett, Jaron Brown and David Moore as their top three wideouts during OTAs and minicamp, but there will be plenty of time this summer for Metcalf to leapfrog either Brown or Moore. Even if he doesn't win a Week 1 starting job, the rookie should at least serve as a part-time deep threat for Wilson, who ranked second in the league last season with a 122.9 passer rating on throws more than 20 yards downfield. With 4.33 speed and a 40.5-inch vertical leap at 6-foot-3, 228 pounds, Metcalf should be useful on deep passes even if he's slow to pick up on the intricacies of NFL-caliber route running. It sounds like Wilson is optimistic about the rookie being more than a one-trick pony.
