Ugly finish to 2023 season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Metcalf was held to one reception for 10 yards on six targets in Sunday's 21-20 win over Arizona.

Quarterback Geno Smith was not synced up with his No. 1 receiver despite picking up the win, resulting in the duo's worst catch rate (17 percent) to date. Even with the sour finish, Metcalf turned in his third 1,000-yard season since joining the league in 2019. The ironman missed the first game of his career due to injury, but he started Seattle's other 16 contests to finish with 66 receptions, 1,114 yards and eight touchdowns. Metcalf will continue to operate as the Seahawks' top receiving option when the team resumes play in 2024.

Tops 1,000 yards

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Metcalf recorded five catches on eight targets for 106 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers.

Metcalf led Seattle with eight targets and took advantage of a depleted Steelers' safety corps with long receptions of 33 and 32 yards. That helped him tally his third 100-yard receiving game of the season, while also topping 1,000 yards for the campaign. In five pro seasons, Metcalf now has topped the century mark on three occasions and has a minimum of 900 yards in each of those five campaigns.

Suiting up in Week 17

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Metcalf (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

The Seahawks tacked Metcalf on to their Week 17 injury report Thursday as a non-participant due to a back issue. Coach Pete Carroll clarified the nature of the concern Friday, calling it lower-back tightness, per Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle, which kept Metcalf off the practice field to end the week and also left him questionable for Sunday's contest. At the same time, Carroll relayed an expectation that Metcalf would be available this weekend, and that's come to pass. Metcalf thus will be facing a Pittsburgh defense that has allowed the eighth-most yards per target (8.6) to opposing wide receivers this season.

Slated to play in Week 17

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Metcalf is tending to stiffness in his lower back, but the wide receiver is in line to play Sunday against the Steelers, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Metcalf showed up on the Seahawks' Week 17 injury report Thursday as a non-participant due to a back injury, which his coach now has clarified. Officially, the team is listing him as questionable for Sunday's game, per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, but Carroll's comments seems to alleviate concerns about his upcoming availability. In the end, Metcalf's status will be confirmed, one way or another, about 90 minutes before a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Listed as questionable

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Metcalf (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Metcalf was a mid-week addition to the injury report after sitting out Thursday's practice. Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports that Metcalf wasn't present at the start of practice Friday, suggesting the wideout is in at least some danger of landing on the inactive list ahead of a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff this Sunday.

Dealing with back issue

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-28

Metcalf didn't practice Thursday due to a back injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Metcalf is making a mid-week appearance on the Seahawks' Week 17 injury report after avoiding it entirely Wednesday. Condotta noted that Metcalf wasn't present during the media-access portion of Thursday's session, and the fifth-year wide receiver now will have one more opportunity Friday to mix into drills before the team potentially gives him a designation for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Along with Metcalf logging a DNP on Thursday, Jaxon Smith-Njigba (knee) and Jake Bobo (knee) got back to all activity after limited practices Wednesday, while Dee Eskridge (ribs) again was sidelined, leaving Tyler Lockett as the only established WR on Seattle's active roster to not have a designation at some point this week.

Misses milestone by two yards

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-24

Metcalf had four receptions on six targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-17 win over Tennessee.

Metcalf's touchdown celebration was delayed after the 11-yard catch was initially ruled an incompletion in the fourth quarter of Sunday's comeback win. Head coach Pete Carroll threw his challenge flag and successfully had the play overturned, which gave the Seahawks' star wideout his eight touchdown of the season. Metcalf finished just two yards shy of recording the third 1,000-yard season of his career, a feat that he could accomplish in the early stages of next Sunday's tilt against Pittsburgh.

Leading receiver in MNF win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Metcalf hauled in five of six targets for 78 yards in Monday's 20-17 win over the Eagles.

Metcalf saw his usage return to normalcy after finishing with just two catches -- albeit for 52 yards and a touchdown -- in the Seahawks' last contest. The star wideout finished as his team's leading receiver while making a crucial 34-yard catch in the closing moments of Monday's comeback victory. Metcalf will now shift his focus to next Sunday's matchup against Tennessee, who rank in the middle of the pack in terms of pass defense this season.

Ejected following late dustup

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Metcalf was ejected late in the fourth quarter after getting involved in an on-field altercation in Sunday's 28-16 loss to San Francisco. He finished with two receptions on five targets for 52 yards and a touchdown.

Metcalf was ejected after giving Fred Warner what can best be described as a German suplex after the 49ers' linebacker intercepted Drew Lock in the final minutes of Sunday's loss. This triggered a chain of events that resulted in a mid-field skirmish involving players and coaches that saw ejections for both squads. Seattle did not get the ball back after losing its top wideout, so the ejection theoretically did not affect his final fantasy score. Perhaps Metcalf's frustration boiled over after he recorded all of his production on Seattle's opening drive, only to wind up with three targets and no receptions for the remainder of the game. Expect Metcalf to receive more looks in Week 15 when the Seahawks host the Eagles for Monday Night Football.
