Metcalf had five receptions (12 targets) for 64 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Falcons.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf was finally able to turn in a strong fantasy performance with Geno Smith at the helm after totaling just 71 yards and no touchdowns through Seattle's first two games. The lack of efficiency (42 percent catch rate) from the quarterback/wideout duo is concerning projecting forward, but fantasy managers have to be pleased with the end results after a pair of duds to start the season. Metcalf will look to build off of this positive performance in a favorable matchup against the Lions next Sunday.

Metcalf caught four of six targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
For the second straight game, Metcalf saw solid volume from Geno Smith but it failed to translate into much production. The entire Seattle offense struggled in this one, however, and the team's only score came on a blocked field goal that got returned to the end zone by Mike Jackson. Metcalf had more success last year with Smith under center, catching 14 passes on 18 targets for 197 yards and three TDs in the QB's three starts, and the talented wideout could break out in Week 3 against a Falcons defense that has already given up huge games to Cooper Kupp (11-108-2), Jarvis Landry (7-114-0) and Michael Thomas (5-57-2) this season.

Metcalf caught all seven of his targets for 36 yards and lost a fumble in Monday's 17-16 win over the Broncos.
EDGE Analysis
One play after showing off his hands and strength to pluck the ball out of the air for a 15-yard gain on 3rd-and-10, Metcalf got greedy on a short pass and had the ball punched out as he was fighting for extra yardage. That fumble was sandwiched between a pair of Broncos fumbles inside Seattle's five-yard line, so Metcalf's miscue didn't wind up costing his team. Big downfield plays could be rare for Metcalf in a conservative Seattle offense helmed by Geno Smith, but the athletic wide receiver was the top option in the passing game, as no teammate saw more than four targets. Metcalf and the Seahawks will face the 49ers in Week 2.

Metcalf didn't play in Friday's 27-26 preseason loss to the Cowboys.
EDGE Analysis
Tyler Lockett played, but Metcalf took the night off as he prepares for the Week 1 matchup against the Broncos. The night was still eventful for the star receiver, as Geno Smith was named the starting quarterback for the season opener. Metcalf had a solid connection with Smith last season, as he totaled 14 catches for 197 yards and three touchdowns during the three games that Smith started.

Metcalf played the opening series of Thursday's 27-11 preseason loss to the Bears but wasn't targeted.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf got his feet wet after sitting out Seattle's preseason opener, but he was used sparingly, as the Seahawks' immediate goal for Metcalf is just to keep him healthy heading into the regular season. Metcalf may see more significant action in the Aug. 26 preseason finale in Dallas so that he can build a rapport with Geno Smith (knee) or Drew Lock (COVID-19) before the games start to count.

Metcalf didn't play during the Seahawks' 32-25 preseason loss to the Steelers on Saturday.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf signed a three-year extension with Seattle in late July, but he was held off the field during Saturday's preseason opener since the Seahawks elected to rest some of their starters. It's not yet clear whether the 24-year-old will see the field at all during the preseason, but his fantasy potential in 2022 is somewhat dependent on the play of Geno Smith or Drew Lock after Russell Wilson was traded to Denver during the offseason.

Metcalf has agreed to terms on a three-year, $72 million extension with the Seahawks, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Per the report, the wideout's deal includes $58.2 million guaranteed, with a $30 million signing bonus. With coach Pete Carroll having noted Wednesday that Metcalf -- who is bouncing back from a foot injury -- had passed his physical, look for the 2019 second-rounder to return to practice in short order. Heading into the 2022 season, Metcalf and Tyler Lockett remain entrenched as Seattle's top wideouts, but with Russell Wilson no longer in the mix, the duo are in line to be catching passes from either Geno Smith or Drew Lock come Week 1.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged Wednesday that Metcalf's offseason foot surgery isn't the reason the wideout isn't participating in the team's early training camp practices, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
EDGE Analysis
Per Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle, Metcalf has indeed passed his physical, but for now he's sitting out practice while he and the team look to work out a new contract. Carroll hinted that progresses is being made on a new deal, which suggests that Metcalf could be back on the field with his teammates before long.

Metcalf (foot) is present at Wednesday's practice but isn't participating, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Seahawks' decision to keep Metcalf off the active/PUP list suggests he has a chance to practice in some capacity during the early part of training camp. No setbacks have been reported since his foot surgery in March, with the bigger issue for fantasy being a poor quarterback situation in Seattle.

Metcalf (foot) was present for the first day of Seattle's training camp Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf skipped mandatory minicamp in June, and there had been some speculation that he would hold out for a new contract, but his appearance at training camp suggests the star wide receiver will not be holding out. It isn't clear whether he will be able to practice with the team immediately, as Metcalf has been recovering from foot surgery. Metcalf wasn't among the initial wave of Seahawks placed on the active/PUP list, which likely indicates that he isn't expected to miss much, if any, practice time.
