After a much publicized offseason kerfuffle over the offense going cold in the second half of the season last year, the Seahawks made some changes that bode well for quarterback Russell Wilson and their roster of skill players. With a promise to roll with an uptempo offense that throws the ball more, over on these prop bets is hard to resist.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

1255.5 receiving yards: Over (-120) or Under (-110)

Our pick: Over

Metcalf broke a franchise record with his 1,303 receiving yards last season in Seattle. That number is even more impressive when you realize just how much of his production was stuffed into the first half of the season. He only had two games over 100 receiving yards after Week 8. With an offense promising to a quicker tempo and more quick passes, Metcalf will have plenty of opportunities. And when he’s got the ball in his hands, he’s hard to stop.

9 receiving TDs: Over (-120) or Under (-110)

Our pick: Over

Metcalf found the end zone 10 times last season, seven of those scores coming in the first eight weeks of the season. With more emphasis on passing, it’ll be hard for Russell Wilson NOT to look Metcalf’s way inside the 25.

84.5 receptions: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

Our pick: Over

He didn’t quite get to this number last season, catching just 83 passes on 129 targets in the regular season. What’s driving this prediction is Seattle’s promise to pass more.
