Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Metcalf during the preseason to see if he will earn a solid role in the passing game during his rookie season. Metcalf has a chance to be a late-round pick in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: While Metcalf has done well to build an early bond with Wilson - and that's obviously a big deal - he still has questions to answer regarding his durability and ability to run precise routes. His talent to make some a fine dynasty asset, but Seattle's run-heavy offense figures to lower his ceiling and floor for fantasy purposes, at least in 2019.

Huddle Up: For what it's worth, Wilson praised each of what are expected to be his top five receivers. Where he singled out Metcalf was the mental part of the game, which is encouraging in its own right. Owners should still keep their expectations for Metcalf in 2019 in check considering Seattle will remain a run first-offense, although he will undoubtedly make splash plays. Whether he becomes something more down the road will obviously depend if he can become something more than the deep threat he was in college.

Huddle Up: Metcalf should have a solid role early in the season with Doug Baldwin retired. He likely will be used in the red zone because of his size, which will help his fantasy value. He has a chance to be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver for the fantasy owners in 2019.

Huddle Up: The retirement of Doug Baldwin has created an opportunity in the passing game, and Metcalf could step into a much larger role than what was originally envisioned for 2019. He's definitely a name to add to your watch list as we approach training camp.

Huddle Up: Metcalf initially projects as an end-of-the-bench WR draft pick in fantasy, but with Doug Baldwin's future uncertain due to injury, the rookie has the upside to challenge for top wideout honors in the 2019 rookie class.

Huddle Up: Metcalf is a physical marvel, but injuries and average production in college raise some question marks. Still, his size and athleticism could allow him to be a red zone monster, and he is worth the gamble as a WR5.
