Dee Eskridge

24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
When the Seahawks selected Eskridge with their first pick - 56th overall - of the 2021 NFL Draft, he became the earliest wide receiver drafted by them since Paul Richardson at No. 45 in 2014. The team needed depth at the position after David Moore signed with the Panthers this offseason, but this decision nonetheless was a bit surprising. While Eskridge was quite productive at Western Michigan with a 34-784-8 line in just six games in 2020, he turned 24 years old in March and stands at just 5-9, 190 pounds. Tyler Lockett already is the primary slot receiver in Seattle's offense, though, so Eskridge's fit into the offense isn't immediately apparent. However, Eskridge demonstrated craftiness in the open field as a kick returner in college, meaning he could make an impact on special teams until he carves out a niche in Russell Wilson's passing tree.

Dismal rookie season
WRSeattle Seahawks
January 14, 2022
Eskridge posted 10 receptions (20 targets) for 64 yards and a touchdown and four rushes for 59 yards over 10 games during his 2021 season.
ANALYSIS
Eskridge missed seven games with a concussion and played more than 50 percent of the offensive snaps just once, averaging 18.9 snaps per game. The rookie second-round pick basically split the Seahawks' No. 3 wideout snaps with Freddie Swain, and neither player managed to distinguish himself. Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects Eskridge to be "a really impactful player" next year. Carroll will need to be creative to get Eskridge involved considering Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf handle the bulk of the passing-game work, but Eskridge has shown flashes in the run game. He'll likely be viewed as a late-round sleeper next season.
