Freddie Swain
23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Swain handled the No. 4 wide receiver duties last season behind DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and David Moore. The 2020 sixth-round pick recorded 13 receptions for 159 yards and two scores over 16 games. Moore left for Carolina in free agency, but the Seahawks selected D'Wayne Eskridge in the second round. Swain has some chemistry with Wilson, but Eskridge's draft capital means he should get plenty of work. It'll be tough to trust Swain as a fantasy contributor unless an injury pops up ahead of him on the depth chart. Read Past Outlooks

Swain caught all five targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans. He also rushed once for five yards.
ANALYSIS
Swain never recorded more than three receptions or 37 receiving yards in a game during his rookie season, but he capitalized Sunday as the clear No. 3 receiver against a putrid Titans secondary. The highlight of his afternoon was a wide-open 68-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter to put the Seahawks up two scores, though they ended up squandering the lead. It's tough to depend on Swain for weekly value behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but he's worth keeping in mind as a contrarian DFS play moving forward.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Seahawks nabbed Swain in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft after the 6-foot, 197-pound wideout completed his senior season at Florida. Swain finished third on the team in receptions (38) and receiving yards (517) in 2019, and he registered a team-high seven receiving touchdowns -- ahead of eventual second-round pick Van Jefferson (six). Combine that with his 4.46 speed and the 22-year-old Swain has a reasonable shot at making the final roster, although his path to meaningful playing time would likely entail an injury to a starter.
