Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (foot) was a full participant while running back Alex Collins (abdomen) was limited during Friday's practice. Metcalf sat out Thursday for maintenance purposes and is all systems go for Week 12 against the Washington Football Team. The Seahawks have struggled to move the ball and have scored just 13 points over the last two weeks. Metcalf has been held to seven catches for 57 yards during those two weeks but remains a mid-range WR2 in Week 12. The Seahawks backfield is banged up as Rashaad Penny (hamstring), and Travis Homer was absent from Friday's practice. Collins has been limited throughout the week with an abdomen injury but is expected to play Monday against Washington. He has rushed for 121 yards on 30 attempts and caught his only target for eight yards over his last three games. Collins is expected to lead Seattle's backfield but is an RB3 in Week 12.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (foot) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice. He has been dealing with a lingering foot injury and receives a maintenance day each week. Metcalf has been putting up modest numbers recently, with QB Russell Wilson and Seattle's offense struggling late. The 23-year-old has caught 7-of-16 targets for 57 yards over his last two games. Metcalf is expected to play Monday against the Washington Football Team, who rank 30th in pass DVOA. Despite the plus matchup, Metcalf is a mid-range WR2 in Week 12.
Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf had a high volume of targets but he couldn't do much with it in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals. Metcalf caught four of his eight targets for 31 yards. After registering at least 50 receiving yards in each of the team's first seven games, he's now been held under 50 yards in each of the past three games since quarterback Russell Wilson returned from his finger injury. His eight targets were three more than any other pass-catcher on the team, but the offense remains inconsistent, at best, right now. You're still starting Metcalf every week, but you have to temper your expectations with the way the offense has struggled.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf had a quiet game last week, but he'll be looking for a quick bounce-back in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals. Last week was just the first game all season where Metcalf had failed to score double-digit fantasy points. He has scored eight touchdowns this year along with averaging a healthy 67.3 yards per game. The Cardinals allow over 30 fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts, so as long as quarterback Russell Wilson is more on target than he was a week ago, Metcalf should have a bounce-back game in this matchup.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (foot) returned to practice as a full participant on Thursday. The big receiver has been missing a day of practice every week, so managers shouldn't worry much about his status entering Week 11. With quarterback Russell Wilson likely to improve from his Week 10 dud, managers should feel confident about firing up Metcalf as a WR1 in 10-team leagues. For the season, Metcalf has caught 42 passes for 606 yards and eight touchdowns in nine games and remains a must-start on a weekly basis.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf (foot) was held out of practice on Wednesday. Metcalf has been missing one practice a week regularly since early this season, so as long as he is able to return to practice on Thursday, he should be just fine for a Week 11 date with the Arizona Cardinals. The entire offense couldn't get anything going in the shutout loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, and Metcalf wasn't immune, catching only three passes for 26 yards. Quarterback Russell Wilson won't be that rusty the rest of the way. The No. 8 overall fantasy wideout in terms of overall fantasy points will be looking to bounce back against Arizona, where he should remain in all starting lineups as at least a low-end WR1.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf will not face any supplemental discipline after he was ejected in Sunday's 17-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Metcalf mentioned that it was his frustration being let out as the Seahawks were shut out in Russell Wilson's return to action. The third-year receiver was held to just three catches for 26 yards as the Seattle offense failed to get anything going against the Packers' defense that has stepped up their game over the past three weeks. Metcalf will look to get back on track in Week 11 when they take on their divisional rival the Arizona Cardinals at home.
Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf struggled mightily in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers. Metcalf caught three of his eight targets for 26 yards before he was ejected late in the game after getting into a scuffle with multiple Packers defenders. The Packers defense did a good job of bottling up Metcalf all game, and his emotions got the best of him late. He remains one of the most physically talented wideouts in the NFL, and quarterback Russell Wilson should play better moving forward. However, this is a game he'll be wanting to forget about as soon as he can. Metcalf could bounce back as soon as next week.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (foot) improved enough to log a limited practice Friday, a step in the right direction ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Metcalf's practices have been all over the map this week, having been a full participant Wednesday, before getting the day off Thursday. All in all, the team's leader in receiving yards this season (580) is on track to be reunited with Russell Wilson (finger) in Week 10. Metcalf's only career meeting against the Green Bay secondary came during the 2019 postseason, when he was kept under wraps to the tune of a four-catch, 59-yard game. This season, the Packers defense has yielded the sixth-fewest points to opposing wideouts in the league.
Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf caught a few more balls than he did a week ago, but he did manage to find the end zone twice in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Metcalf caught all six of his targets for 43 yards and the two touchdowns. Metcalf finished second on the team behind Lockett in targets, and he was the only other pass-catcher with more than two targets on the day. Metcalf has seen at least five targets in every single game this season, and he remains one of the more consistent wideouts in all of fantasy football.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf (foot) returned to a limited practice on Friday and was removed from the final injury report for Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Metcalf continues to get a day off in the middle of the practice week, but he will be all systems go this weekend. The 23-year-old star wideout has managed an impressive eight catches on 12 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown in quarterback Geno Smith's two starts, and he's really the only offensive weapon to find success since Russell Wilson (finger) went on Injured Reserve. Metcalf has the physicality to beat up on anyone Jacksonville puts in front of him, but the question is whether Smith can find him regularly. Until Wilson returns, Metcalf will be a more volatile WR2 instead of an elite WR1.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf (foot) and running back Alex Collins (groin) were downgraded in practice on Thursday and were listed as not practicing. Metcalf practiced in full on Wednesday, and it's likely that the Seahawks were just resting him on Thursday. Collins was limited on Wednesday. Metcalf has eight catches on 12 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown in his two games with quarterback Geno Smith leading the offense, but he'll remain more of a volatile big-play-dependent WR2 in Week 8, even against the one-win Jacksonville Jaguars. Collins had 16 carries compared to six for returning RB Rashaad Penny last week, gaining 35 yards on the ground. If he plays, he should continue to be the leading back, but Collins won't have a ton of fantasy upside as an RB3/flex with Smith still leading this offense.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf struggled due to the rain last week, but he has a chance for a big fantasy outing in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Metcalf leads the team in targets since quarterback Geno Smith took over the starting duties when quarterback Russell Wilson (finger) went down with an injury. He also scored the team's lone touchdown last week thanks to his big-play ability on a long reception in the first quarter. The Jaguars have given up 289 or more yards in all but one game this season, and they don't generate many turnovers. With the Seattle running backs banged up, Metcalf should see a sizable workload and put together a strong week. There's more volatility with him as long as Smith is under center, but Metcalf should at least be a WR2 play this week.
Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf caught just two balls in Week 7, but he made them count in the loss against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. Metcalf caught two of his five targets for 96 yards and a touchdown. His first catch of the game came on an 84-yard touchdown down the sideline that saw him outrun the Saints defense. Metcalf's five targets were second on the team, but he was often the player quarterback Geno Smith was throwing to when nothing else was open. Metcalf remains extra volatile as long as Smith is under center, but you're likely still starting him due to his big-play ability.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was the team's top target last week, and he figures to maintain that spot in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints. Metcalf caught six of his seven targets a week ago, and he was turned into somewhat of a possession receiver rather than a downfield threat with Geno Smith at quarterback. With his size and athleticism, he can fill that role, and he'll have a size advantage over all of the Saints defensive backs. With the Seattle running backs dealing with injuries, we could see a heavier emphasis on passing the ball, which would lead to more opportunities for Metcalf. He's not quite in the WR1 category this week, but he's still a solid WR2 or flex option for your fantasy lineups.
Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf was tied for the team lead in targets, but he was mostly held in check during the team's Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Metcalf caught six of his seven targets for 58 yards in the loss, with a long of just 14 yards. Metcalf has now gone for at least 50 yards in every single game, and he's caught a touchdown in four out of six games. This was his first game this season where he failed to catch a ball for at least 15 yards, so it's clear that Metcalf will be less of an explosive option with quarterback Geno Smith under center. He'll remain one of the top two targets in this offense, but expectations need to be tempered until further notice.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf (foot) was removed from the final injury report for Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be available on Sunday night. Metcalf raised some eyebrows when he didn't practice on Thursday, but he's good to go despite dealing with a foot issue. The 23-year-old superstar comes into the week as the overall WR9 with 25 receptions on 38 targets for 383 yards and five touchdowns through the first five weeks. However, he should be downgraded slightly to more of a high-end WR2 now that quarterback Russell Wilson (finger) is on Injured Reserve. Backup Geno Smith looked comfortable targeting Metcalf right away and even threw a touchdown to him last Thursday, but there will surely be a drop-off under center. The good news is that Pittsburgh has been vulnerable through the air this year, allowing eight touchdowns to WRs.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (foot) missed Thursday's practice with foot pain. The big receiver was a limited participant on Wednesday, but was downgraded to not participating on Thursday. Metcalf has dealt with foot issues throughout the season and it's possible that the Seahawks, who are already dealing with injuries to quarterback Russell Wilson (finger) and running back Chris Carson (neck) have elected to give Metcalf some extra rest. That being said, it's never a good sign to see a player pick up a DNP this late in the week. There should be more clarity about his situation on Friday and managers should monitor the injury report. Even with Geno Smith behind center, Metcalf should be considered a WR2 with WR1 potential in a Week 6 battle against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Metcalf were to sit out, wide receivers Freddie Swain and Penny Hart would see an increase in snaps. Both Swain and Hart could be avoided in most formats.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf (foot) put in another limited practice on Wednesday. Metcalf continues to be a limited participant in practices, but he has yet to miss a game and has scored four times in the last three weeks and five times through the first five weeks. The physical specimen caught all five of his targets for 98 yards and two scores in last Thursday's loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Metcalf should be good to go for Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the bigger issue is that quarterback Russell Wilson (finger) will miss at least a month. The 23-year-old has been a top-10 fantasy wideout to this point, but expect a little more volatility from him with Geno Smith now under center for the foreseeable future.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf is a problem for opposing defenses in most matchups, but he has a terrible matchup in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams. Metcalf is likely to see a lot of cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who had a great performance against Metcalf in both of their matchups a season ago. Metcalf caught eight of his 12 targets for 87 yards combined in two matchups against the Rams in 2020. In the other 14 games he played, he averaged 86.9 yards per game. Basically, Metcalf's production was cut in half when matched up with Ramsey. Fantasy managers aren't benching Metcalf in season-long leagues as top-10 wideout, but you may want to temper expectations this week.
Seattle Seahawks wide receivers D.K. Metcalf (foot) and Dee Eskridge (concussion) were both listed as limited on Monday's estimated practice report. Metcalf had a big game in the Week 4 win over the San Francisco 49ers, catching four of his eight targets for 65 yards and a touchdown. His foot injury doesn't sound like anything that would put him in danger of missing this Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Rams, but we'll keep an eye on his practice status over the next two days. The 23-year-old remains an elite WR1 and should be in all weekly lineups as long as he's healthy. Eskridge suffered a concussion in his NFL debut in Week 1 and hasn't played since. There's not a guarantee that he'll clear the concussion protocol in time to play on Thursday, but he's making progress. Eskridge will likely have a minor role on offense once he returns to the field behind Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Freddie Swain.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf caught 4-of-8 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 28-21 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He was limited in practice this week with a foot issue but shook off the foot injury and led the Seahawks in receiving in Week 4. The 23-year-old has hauled in 20-of-33 targets for 285 yards and three touchdowns over four games in 2021. Metcalf continues to produce and is a WR1 against the Los Angeles Rams for Thursday Night Football.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf (foot) was on the Week 4 injury report on Thursday after getting in a limited practice session. It might not be an injury that will put him in danger of missing Sunday's game against the division-rival San Francisco 49ers, but it's worth mentioning with Tyler Lockett (hip) being downgraded on Thursday. Metcalf leads the Seahawks in targets (25) through three games, and he's caught 16 of them for 220 yards and two touchdowns. If Lockett is unable to get clearance before Sunday's game, Metcalf could see a bunch of footballs come his way against the Niners. The 23-year-old physical specimen should be considered a locked-in WR1 with top-five upside.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf continues to develop with each passing week, and he'll be his team's leading man in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers. Metcalf is first on the team in targets with 25, and fellow wideout Tyler Lockett is the only other Seattle pass-catcher with more than nine targets. In the first meeting between these two squads last year, Metcalf caught 12 of 15 targets for 161 yards and two scores. He has the size and speed to exploit this defense down the field, and with Lockett dealing with an injury, he should see an increased load of targets. You can have confidence starting Metcalf this week.
Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf saw a healthy target share in Week 2, but he wasn't able to turn it into a ton of fantasy success against the Tennessee Titans. Metcalf caught six of his 11 targets for 53 yards on the day. Metcalf saw multiple deep opportunities on the day, but he and quarterback Russell Wilson were never able to connect. One of the main downsides with Metcalf remains his focus on big plays for production. If he doesn't catch at least one ball deep down the field, his performances are on the lower end of the spectrum. Luckily, with the volume he receives, he should still be at least a WR2 on a weekly basis.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
