One of the most physically intimidating wide receiver prospects we've ever seen, D.K. Metcalf set the NFL combine on fire when he ran an unbelievable 4.33 forty yard dash at 6'3", 228 lbs. That insane size/speed combination is almost unprecedented and it certainly makes Metcalf a tantalizing pick in dynasty drafts this season.

However, there are concerns when it comes to Metcalf. While his 40 time was beyond impressive, Metcalf turned in an equally unimpressive 7.38 second three-cone drill, placing him 27th out of 29 receivers who participated in the drill at the NFL Scouting Combine. That drill is often looked at as the primary agility indicator, so it's concerning that Metcalf seems to lack what would be needed to create separation with anything other than raw speed in one direction.

The other major red flag for Metcalf is that he is simply not very productive in college. He had just 1,228 yards and 14 touchdowns in his three collegiate seasons combined at Ole Miss. Perhaps more importantly, his reception and yardage totals were more than doubled each season by teammate A.J. Brown.

Certainly Metcalf can be looked at as a long-term project player with immense upside. Perhaps he just hasn't been coached well, or maybe he just hasn't been locked in with his quarterback. It's hard to tell why he hasn't fired yet, but the athletic upside is undeniable. We've seen Russell Wilson give his receivers the opportunity to go up and make contested catches in the past, so Metcalf might be a great fit for this Seattle offense. With that being said, however, Metcalf is currently being drafted around the likes of Corey Davis, Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and other receivers who have actually produced before in the NFL and are arguably in better situations. That makes him a serious risk and a potential bust for fantasy here in 2019.

D.K. Metcalf impressing with his mind
Russell Wilson praises rookie's football intelligence
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 24, 8:55 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Leading up to and immediately after the NFL Draft, D.K. Metcalf was perhaps known just as much for his hulking physique as he was for what he did on the field at Ole Miss. But this spring, he was more than merely a physical specimen. Russell Wilson pointed to Metcalf's football knowledge when asked what about the rookie wide receiver has stood out most. "Everybody knows about his ability to run and everything else, and jump and catch and all that. .. 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," Wilson said. (ESPN - Brady Henderson)

FFToday's Take: There's no question Metcalf has done well to build an early rapport with Wilson, but he still has questions to answer regarding his durability and ability to run precise routes. With Tyler Lockett expected to be the clear top option in the passing game and Seattle's run-heavy offense likely to remain the focal point of the offense, Metcalf is not a good bet to be consistent enough to live up to his current 8.10 ADP.
