Draft note
by John Paulsen
For as much hand-wringing as there was around draft season about Metcalf’s ability to run routes, he fared quite well (especially for a rookie) in Matt Harmon’s Reception Perception analysis. This helped him to a No. 32 finish in his rookie season. Seattle fed him 100 targets, the 31st-most among rookie receivers since 2000 and the 17th-most since 2010. Since the 2000 season, 19 of 26 receivers with 90-110 targets as rookies saw their targets per game increase the following season by an average of 14.6%, so Metcalf’s involvement should increase in his sophomore season. I’m not ready to rank him ahead of Tyler Lockett, who is one of the best route runners in the league, but the gap is narrowing.

SEA WR DK Metcalf - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

One of the most puzzling events of the 2019 NFL Draft was DK Metcalf falling all the way to the end of the second round, landing in Seattle. Metcalf wasted no time getting accustomed to his new digs and showing why he was still one of the top receivers in the draft class. He finished with a line of 58/900/7 (100 targets) as a rookie. As he enters year two, his usage should continue to grow. As our John Paulsen notes: "Since the 2000 season, 19 of 26 receivers with 90-110 targets as rookies saw their targets per game increase the following season by an average of 14.6%, so Metcalf’s involvement should increase in his sophomore season."

Fantasy Downside

The drops stand to improve from his rookie season, as he had eight in 2019. Along with Lockett, Greg Olsen will probably eat somewhat into their targets, but Seattle is throwing the ball more, giving Metcalf enough shots (and opportunities to improve his drop rate).

2020 Bottom Line

The athletic freak is set to take the next step forward in his sophomore year and has already established himself as an excellent red-zone target. As his route-running improves and his drops settle down, Metcalf will continue to grow, but for now, he's the second fantasy receiver option in Seattle, behind Tyler Lockett. Even with that, Metcalf is still a solid, top-25 fantasy WR.
