Draft note
by John Paulsen
Metcalf was the WR10 last season through Week 17, which is the span I typically look at to eliminate any Week 18 rest/shenanigans. Tyler Lockett tore it up in Week 18, so when that’s included, Metcalf finished WR12 and Lockett finished WR13. They are going WR23 and WR46 in early drafts, respectively. In three full games with possible-2022-starter Geno Smith, Metcalf caught 14-of-18 targets for 197 yards and three touchdowns (11.95 yards per attempt), while Lockett caught 16-of-23 targets for 189 yards and no touchdowns (7.25 yards per attempt). Even though Smith targeted Lockett more frequently, Metcalf’s fantasy points per target were significantly higher than Lockett’s (2.48 vs. 1.17) and he actually scored a touchdown in each of the four games in which Smith appeared at quarterback. (Meanwhile, Russell Wilson averaged only 6.63 YPA when targeting Metcalf.) If Smith is named the starter, then I’ll be more bullish on Metcalf’s 2022 outlook since it seems the two have a solid rapport and Smith tends to look his way in the red zone.

SEA WR DK Metcalf - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
When we talk about DK Metcalf, we still think of the freakish athletic ability and scoring upside. Metcalf had almost 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns last year, giving him 29 touchdowns in three seasons. He should also be motivated as he enters a contract year. Despite what felt like a down year at times, Metcalf still finished as WR12 last season.

2022 Fantasy Downside
Russell Wilson is in Denver now and there’s no telling who the starting quarterback will be, though most expect Geno Smith to beat out Drew Lock. His numbers also took a bit of a dive in the second half of the season. Eight of his 12 touchdowns came in the first eight games of the season. Metcalf is also hoping to bounce back from having only one game above 100 yards last season and only two games with at least 60 yards in his last nine games.

2022 Bottom Line
The fantasy outlook for Metcalf and the Seattle offense would likely look better if Smith beats out Lock. But the constant upside we always talk about with Metcalf and the hope for a new contract could produce another strong season for him, making him a solid WR2 option, currently No. 21 on our WR board.
