    Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf could initially be used as the No. 4 receiver this upcoming season so the team could give him more time to feel comfortable with the offense, in the opinion of The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta.

    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.

    Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf has impressed QB Russell Wilson with his football knowledge so far as a rookie. 'Everybody knows about his ability to run and everything else, and jump and catch and all that. You guys have been talking about that for months, but I think more than anything else, it's his brain and how he processes information and how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent. He really understands the game really well. He takes coaching really well. He gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything that everybody was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more.'

    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.

    Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf has repeatedly impressed QB Russell Wilson throughout spring workouts. 'It's great seeing DK make his plays. I think DK is looking really, really special. He can do anything and everything and he's tremendous. ... Everybody knows about (his) ability to run and jump and catch and all that. But I think more than anything else, it's his brain, how he processes information, how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent, he understands the game really well. He takes coaching well, he gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything everyone was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more,' Wilson said.

    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.

    Seattle Seahawks second-round draft choice WR D.K. Metcalf signed a four-year contract with the Seahawks Wednesday, May 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    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.

    Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf was impressive during the team's rookie minicamp, according to the Washington Post's John Clayton, who said it was the best showing seen at a Seattle rookie camp since QB Russell Wilson back in 2012. Clayton added that Metcalf did so well that the team could start him on the outside and slide WR Tyler Lockett into the slot.

    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.

    Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf has made a quick impression in the team's rookie camp. Asked what impresses him most about the second-round draft pick, head coach Pete Carroll said: 'Well, it's almost like, what doesn't, you know? He's big and he's fast. He's got really good feet, you know, and his catching range was exhibited today for a start,' Carroll said Saturday, May 4. 'And you know, we've got to figure it out, figure out where it is, maybe even more unique than we thought coming in. So we just develop it as we go. But big and really fast and the catching range was really obvious.'

    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.

    Mississippi WR D.K. Metcalf was selected by the Seattle Seahawks with the 64th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    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.
