D.K. Metcalf is coming off the board as a consensus top-10 receiver. While he easily smashed that last season, will Seattle continue to be able to produce two top-10 fantasy receivers? We will look at Metcalf’s production from last season and determine whether Metcalf should one of the top NFL fantasy football draft picks in 2021.

Metcalf’s Production in 2020

Whenever Metcalf did great last year, Tyler Lockett struggled, and vice versa. That is a huge issue for both of these players. Still, Metcalf had strong numbers, finishing with 129 targets (14th at his position) and 83 receptions (17th) for 1,303 yards (sixth) and 10 touchdowns.

Metcalf’s Outlook in 2021

If Metcalf and Lockett continue trade off hot and cold stretches, this will be a clear avoid situation. There is also a chance Lockett will be more consistent, which would knock Metcalf down a peg. There is also the matter of Pete Carroll’s run-first offensive philosophy, which could cut into Metcalf’s volume. Now, Seattle’s defense may regress to where it was at the start of last season, giving up tons of points and forcing the offense to throw more, but the signs are not really pointing in that direction. While Metcalf is an elite wide receiver, he is a clear avoid if his ADP is placing him among the top 10 receivers.
