D.K. Metcalf: Inefficient with 11 targets

Metcalf caught five passes for 58 yards on 11 targets against Arizona on Sunday.

Analysis: Metcalf generally struggled against the Cardinals the last two years while fellow wideout Tyler Lockett posted big numbers in that same span, so it seems safe to say that there's something in Arizona's defensive approach that makes things more difficult for Metcalf. The entire 2021 season has been more difficult for Metcalf, who played a bit nicked up at several points and otherwise dealt with both injury and general dysfunction at quarterback this year. He finishes with 75 receptions for 967 yards and 12 touchdowns on 129 targets, which is a catch rate of 58.1 percent at 7.5 yards per target -- a huge dropoff from his 2020 season, when he caught 64.3 percent of his targets at 10.1 yards per target. Despite the difficulties of 2021, Metcalf is still clearly a unique talent capable of elite fantasy production. Whether he's in a good spot to do so in 2022 will depend on what Seattle does with their quarterback and coaching situations. It probably wouldn't be good for Metcalf if Russell Wilson left Seattle, but a coaching change could bring a more favorable system to the offense. Metcalf's situation is an interesting one to watch.
