Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs PIT (7 / 3 / 61 / 1 rec)

Let's say this again, shall we: Metcalf, for the most part, did not look like a rookie out there. On the first play from scrimmage, he worked the defender expertly on the sideline, coming back for a slightly underthrown ball, and an easy first down. He was not targeted for a while after that, and in the 2-minute drill, finally reminded us that he is a rookie after all, when his second offensive Pass Interference call in as many games stalled the drive. In the second half, he really used his size advantage. After a short mid-field catch, he manhandled the smaller D players for extra yards. Coverage was tight on him all game, but he did a beautiful job tracking the ball on his TD catch. It came over his shoulder in the end zone for a 28 yard score.

2019 Week 1 vs CIN (6 / 4 / 89 / 0 rec)

Metcalf mad a splash in his NFL debut. He did not get on the score sheet, but did become Russell Wilson favourite target, and deservedly so. Metcalf looked not only dependable, but also showed off some acrobatics, catching the ball in traffic and on the run for a big gain of 25, which set up a touchdown the following play. Perhaps most importantly, he made a lot his catches look very easy. Metcalf also contributed by drawing a pass interference call in the end zone. Oh, and he was also called for offensive pass interference. Win some, lose some.

Seahawks | D.K. Metcalf shows upside (Sun Sep 8, 11:31 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf caught four of his six targets for 89 yards in a 21-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1.

Our View: Metcalf is certainly an imposing target on the field. Russell Wilson went after him quite a bit and we could see the rookie developing into a quality red-zone threat for the Seahawks offense.

Our View: The rookie wide receiver is good to go for the season opener. Seattle is at home to face the Bengals in Week 1, and Metcalf could perform like a deep flex play with upside.

Seahawks | Week 1 injury report for Seattle (Fri Sep 6, 05:58 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR David Moore (shoulder) and C Joey Hunt (ankle) were unable to practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals. DE L.J. Collier (ankle) was limited in practice all week and has also been ruled out. OG Mike Iupati (foot) and DE Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) were also limited in practice all week but are listed as questionable. DE Jadeveon Clowney (non-injury) remained a limited participant in practice Friday, Sept. 6, but was removed from the injury report. OT Duane Brown (knee), OT George Fant (ankle), WR D.K. Metcalf (knee), WR Jaron Brown (toe), LB Shaquem Griffin (knee) and S Marquise Blair (back) fully participated in practice Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Seahawks | D.K. Metcalf deems own knee to be 100 percent (Thu Sep 5, 06:02 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (knee) deemed himself 100 percent ahead of his team's Week 1 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. 'I am. I'm 100 percent. I'm very excited just to be back out there and play on Sunday,' Metcalf said before practice Thursday, Sept. 5, via Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR.

Our View: Metcalf is still a fringe play for Week 1 with the Seahawks heavily favored and likely to run a lot vs. Cincinnati, but it will be exciting to see how he looks on an NFL field and he could be one of the Week 1 sensations if he gets free deep.

Seahawks | D.K. Metcalf limited (Wed Sep 4, 07:29 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 4.

Our View: It looks like the rookie is on track for the start of the regular season. We'll see if he can be a full participant on Friday. Metcalf has flex appeal if he plays in Week 1 against the Bengals.
