Game day update: Metcalf is officially ACTIVE. Start him as usual in fantasy.
Game day update: Metcalf picked up a hip injury this week on the injury report. He is questionable but will play against the Panthers.
Seahawks’ WR DK Metcalf, listed as questionable for today due to a hip injury, will play vs. the Panthers, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 11, 2022
The Seattle Seahawks offense is dealing with a rash of injuries this week. Wide receiver DK Metcalf joins the team’s top two running backs with a questionable designation on the official injury report for Week 14. However, unlike the two running backs who will be game-time decisions, head coach Pete Carroll has said that Metcalf will play this week despite his hip injury.
The Seahawks play host to the Carolina Panthers with a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff on Sunday.
Fantasy football implications
The injury popped up for Metcalf during the week, who sat out Friday’s practice after a limited session on Thursday. That was apparently more of a rest thing, since Carroll reaffirmed his status for Sunday.
Metcalf had a big game last week for Seattle, catching all eight targets that came his way for a total of 127 yards and a touchdown. That was his second highest yardage total of the season and his fifth score.
Tyler Lockett leads the team in receiving, and would likely see a few more looks if Metcalf were to miss a game. Marquise Goodwin would see more work if either of those players sit.
