Struggles to close regular season

Metcalf recorded three receptions on eight targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams.

Analysis: Metcalf led the Seahawks with eight targets, though he struggled to make an impact on the game. He was targeted on each of Geno Smith's interceptions, but Metcalf also tallied 23-yard reception to help set up a game-tying touchdown early in the third quarter. Seattle's offense performed far better than preseason expectations, which helped Metcalf post the second 1,000-yard season of his four-year career. He'll remain a big-play threat if the team can advance to the postseason.

Quiet in win over Jets

Metcalf caught one of five targets for three yards in Sunday's 23-6 win over the Jets.

Analysis: It was a bad day for Seattle's wideouts in general, as Geno Smith's two touchdown passes went to tight ends and the team never trailed in the game, leaving little need to air it out. Metcalf will look to rebound from his worst performance of the season in Week 18 as the Seahawks try to claim a playoff spot with a win over the Rams.

Leads team in receiving

Metcalf pulled in seven of nine targets for 81 yards in Saturday's 24-10 loss to Kansas City.

Analysis: Metcalf was the leading receiver for Seattle on a day where the offense sputtered, producing the only notable fantasy line from the entire receiver group. The Seahawks were without the services of Tyler Lockett (finger), but his absence didn't help or hurt Metcalf's usage. The former has a chance to return in Week 17, which would provide a boost for an offense that has hit the skids in recent weeks. If Lockett can't go, then Metcalf would have to deal with Jets' top corner, Sauce Gardner, by himself next Sunday.

Co-leads team in receptions

Metcalf secured seven of nine targets for 55 yards in the Seahawks' 21-13 loss to the 49ers on Thursday night.

Analysis: Metcalf co-led the Seahawks in receptions on the night and checked in second to Tyler Lockett (finger) in receiving yardage. The star wideout's yardage tally was his lowest since Week 9's 37-yard total versus the Cardinals, but he's now recorded at least seven receptions in three of his past four games going into a critical Week 16 road matchup against the Chiefs, one in which he's expected to see even more work than usual with Lockett expected to sit out.

Scores in defeat

Metcalf caught 5 of 10 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Panthers.

Analysis: Metcalf scored with a 12-yard reception just prior to halftime, giving him a touchdown in consecutive contests. The wideout has also gone for at least 70 yards in four straight outings, showing good form while entering the final quarter of the campaign. Despite his recent success, Metcalf has a tough matchup in Week 15, as he'll face arguably the league's best defense in the 49ers on Thursday night.

Playing Sunday, as expected

Metcalf (hip) is active for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Analysis: After his practice reps were limited Thursday and nonexistent Friday due to a hip injury, Metcalf was tagged with a questionable designation for Week 14. Coach Pete Carroll told Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times following Friday's session that Metcalf's absence primarily was to give him a rest day, but there was an expectation he'd be able to play Sunday. Indeed, that has come to pass, and with the Seahawks backfield down dynamic rookie Kenneth Walker, the offense may rely more on the passing game. Metcalf has been lighting it up in two games since a Week 11 bye, hauling in 19 of 23 targets for 217 yards and one touchdown during that span.

Expected to suit up vs. Carolina

Metcalf (hip) is expected to play Sunday versus the Panthers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Metcalf is on track to be available, and it appears that remains the case. The star wideout was limited due to a hip injury Thursday then held out of Friday's practice entirely, so fantasy managers will still want to monitor Seattle's inactives when released ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Metcalf is officially carrying listed as questionable.

Dec 11, 2022 2:39 AM EST

Questionable, but on track to play

Metcalf (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, but head coach Pete Carroll said the receiver is in line to play, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Fantasy managers will still want to confirm that Metcalf is active ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, but Carroll implied that the 24-year-old is taking a designation into the weekend mostly for precautionary purposes. After he was a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to the hip injury, Metcalf was held out of Friday's session entirely, though Carroll described it as a rest day, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. Fantasy managers can probably feel comfortable with keeping Metcalf active this week, after he drew eight or more targets in four of the Seahawks' last five games.

Gets questionable tag for Week 14

Metcalf (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Seattle could be without its top two skill-position players Sunday, as both Metcalf and lead back Kenneth Walker (ankle) are listed as questionable due to their respective injuries. Metcalf was a mid-week addition to the injury report, after the hip issue resulted in him logging only a limited practice Thursday. More clarity on Metcalf's status will likely come in the hours leading up to Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, but if the 24-year-old is sidelined this weekend, Tyler Lockett would serve as the clear No. 1 target for quarterback Geno Smith.

Dec 9, 2022 1:07 PM EST

Limited by hip issue

Metcalf was limited at Thursday's practice due to a hip injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Metcalf is making a sudden appearance on the Seahawks' Week 14 practice report, which marks his second known health concern of the season after picking up a knee issue back in Week 7. Since then, though, he's put together a 36-380-3 line on 48 targets over the last five games, displaying his ability to play through the pain. Friday's report will reveal whether or not Metcalf carries a designation into the weekend ahead of Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Caps big day with game-winning TD

Metcalf caught all eight of his targets for 127 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Rams.

Analysis: He fell one catch and one yard short of Tyler Lockett for the team leads in those categories, but Metcalf made his mark by hauling in an eight-yard strike from Geno Smith with only 36 seconds left in the fourth quarter to give Seattle the victory. It was Metcalf's second 100-yard performance of the season, and he's posted a 25-288-1 line on 32 targets over the last three games heading into a Week 14 clash with the Panthers.

Dec 4, 2022 6:49 PM EST

Leading receiver in OT loss

Metcalf caught 11 of 15 targets for 90 yards in Sunday's 40-34 overtime loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: While he wasn't able to get into the end zone, Metcalf led the Seahawks in catches, targets and yards while setting a new season high in receptions. The fourth-year wideout has a strong 28-352-2 line on 40 targets over the last four games, giving him plenty of momentum heading into a Week 13 clash with the Rams.

Nov 27, 2022 7:14 PM EST

Records 71 yards

Metcalf recorded six catches on nine targets for 71 yards in Sunday's 21-16 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Metcalf tied for the team lead in receptions with Kenneth Walker, though he was uncharacteristically limited to short areas of the field. While his longest catch of the day went for only 16 yards, Metcalf still managed a decent day by tallying five receptions of at least 10 yards. Metcalf entered the game having tallied no more than 55 yards in each of his last four matchups, so it was a needed bounceback effort.

Nov 13, 2022 12:21 PM EST

Finds end zone in win

Metcalf caught five of six targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: While his longest catch went for only nine yards, Metcalf salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a four-yard TD grab in the second quarter. It's the sixth time in nine games he's caught at least five passes, and the fourth-year wideout will look to stretch the field a little more in a Week 10 clash with the Buccaneers in Germany.

Nov 6, 2022 5:20 PM EST

Logs full practice Thursday

Metcalf (knee) practiced in full Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: With all activity in a session for the first time since suffering a patellar tendon injury Week 7 at the Chargers, Metcalf has a clean bill of health as the Seahawks prepare for Sunday's contest at Arizona. The same can be said the Tyler Lockett (hamstring/ribs), so the pair will look to exploit a Cardinals defense that has give up the fifth-most catches (105) but just five total touchdowns to wide receivers in eight games this season.

Nov 3, 2022 4:32 PM EST

Officially limited Wednesday

Metcalf (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: After Metcalf was carted off the field during a Week 7 win at the Chargers, he eventually was diagnosed with a patellar tendon injury that was believed would force some time away from the field. Instead, he was able practice in a limited capacity last Friday, be deemed questionable for this past Sunday's game against the Giants and actually play in that contest. Overall, Metcalf had a smaller snap share than normal (63 percent) but still produced to the tune of six catches (on 10 targets) for 55 yards and one touchdown. Having a cap on his reps Wednesday is understandable, and he has a pair of sessions remaining this week before he potentially receives a designation for Sunday's road matchup with the Cardinals.

Nov 2, 2022 4:31 PM EST

Scores TD against Giants

Metcalf caught six of 10 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants.

Analysis: What a difference a week makes. Metcalf appeared headed for a potentially lengthy absence after he was carted off the field last week with a knee injury, but instead he shook it off, got in a limited practice Friday and then snagged a three-yard strike from Geno Smith early in the second quarter Sunday to open the scoring. The fourth-year wideout wound up leading Seattle in targets on the afternoon, and while his longest catch went for only 15 yards, he didn't appear to be overly bothered by his knee. Even so, expect Metcalf to have his practice reps limited again ahead of a Week 9 clash with the Cardinals.

Oct 30, 2022 9:20 PM EST

Suiting up in Week 8

Metcalf (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Giants.

Analysis: There was a belief Metcalf would miss some time after getting carted off the field last Sunday at the Chargers. However, X-rays were returned negative and surgery was ruled out on his knee, he proceeded to log one limited practice Friday, and a game-time decision turned into active status for the fourth-year pro. The Seahawks thus will operate with their typical starting wide receivers Metcalf and Tyler Lockett (hamstring) -- the latter of whom also was questionable for Week 8 -- against New York's 15th-ranked pass defense (211 yards per game).

Oct 30, 2022 11:57 AM EST

In line to play Week 8

Metcalf, who's listed as questionable due to a knee injury, is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Metcalf was carted off the field during Week 7 and was initially looking at a multiple week absence. However, the star wideout was able to log a limited practice Friday and is expected to suit up in Week 8. Regardless, it's certainly possible the Seahawks keep Metcalf on a snap count against the Giants, so fantasy managers are still encouraged to look for more updates closer to Sunday's 4:25 PM ET kickoff.

Oct 29, 2022 9:09 PM EST

Treated as game-time decision

Metcalf (knee) returned to a limited practice Friday and is considered a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Giants, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Early signs pointed to Metcalf missing at least one game and quite possibly more, but coach Pete Carroll said Friday that the team has been pleasantly surprised by the wideout's quick progress. Tyler Lockett, on the other hand, reportedly tweaked his hamstring or oblique during Thursday's practice, making him a game-time decision right alongside Metcalf ahead of the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday. The Seahawks have Marquise Goodwin, Dee Eskridge and Dareke Young as fill-in options at wide receiver.
