Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf is having fun in his rookie season, and he is getting advice from veterans like QB Russell Wilson, OT Duane Brown and LB Bobby Wagner on how to adjust to the league. He has quickly adjusted on the field, going for 150 receiving yards and a score through two games.
Huddle Up: Metcalf has quickly emerged as a decent downfield threat for Wilson and the Seahawks opposite Tyler Lockett, essentially taking over as the new Doug Baldwin. For fantasy purposes he is a legit WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

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.
Huddle Up: Metcalf appeared in just one preseason game and recorded a single four-yard catch. The star of this year's NFL Combine, Metcalf slipped to the second round but is listed by the team as the starter opposite Tyler Lockett. He shouldn't be started in Week 1 with the Seahawks having a favorable matchup for their run-heavy attack, but he's a worthy bench option until his role becomes better defined.

Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (knee) will participate in some practice activities next week because his knee has shown no swelling since his surgery, head coach Pete Carroll said Friday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: While it still remains to be seen if Metcalf will be on the field for Week 1, it doesn't sound like the knee injury will sideline him for an extended period. He will likely be a big-play dependent fantasy option as a rookie, but he's a good fit for Seattle's passing attack. He's a late-round option with upside in redraft leagues and an even better pick in best ball formats.
