2021 Fantasy Outlook
Through the first 11 weeks last season, Metcalf had a 90-58-1,039-9 line (with 17.9 YPC and 11.5 YPT), a 1,500-yard, 13-TD pace. But he had only one TD over the season’s final five weeks and never again eclipsed 100 yards in a game. The problem was Seattle’s schedule (they faced the Nos. 1, 2 and 9 pass defenses) and their inability to protect Russell Wilson, whose record-pace numbers also cratered. But coach Pete Carroll does prefer a more run-heavy offense, something that’s limited Wilson and his receivers for nearly a decade. In fact, Wilson himself agreed to waive his no-trade clause if the Seahawks were willing to move him, presumably to a team that would “let Russ cook.” Assuming Wilson stays put, Metcalf should reprise his status as his monstrous big-play weapon. Physically, Metcalf is Julio Jones with 15 more pounds of muscle. Or perhaps Terrell Owens with more speed. The last (and perhaps only) physical freak at Metcalf’s level was peak Calvin Johnson. At 6-4, an absurdly jacked 235 and running a 4.33 40, Metcalf can get behind any defense, and Wilson has the arm to reach him. But his production fell late in the season in part because Wilson didn’t have time for Metcalf’s deeper routes (13.3 aDOT, 4th) to develop. Bottom line, there’s some uncertainty, but if Wilson sticks around — something that seems likely — Metcalf again should compete with Tyreek Hill to be the league’s most dangerous game breaker.

Rips off huge score in loss
WRSeattle Seahawks
October 25, 2021
Metcalf (foot) caught two of five targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 13-10 loss to New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Metcalf managers had a bit of an scare earlier in the week when he popped up on the injury report with a foot injury on the last day of team practice, but the speedster turned out to be healthy enough to suit up for Monday's contest. The 23-year-old rewarded fantasy managers with a career-high 84-yard touchdown catch and run after beating his assignment on a go route in the first quarter. Metcalf has managed to stay relevant over the past two weeks even with the sub-par Geno Smith under center, and he will attempt to continue doing so for at least one more game when Seattle takes on the Jaguars before the team's bye week.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
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.
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.
