Analysis: How Did Seahawks Receivers Perform in 2021?

While they didn't replicate their combined numbers from a year earlier, Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf remained one of the better receiver duos in the league in spite of injuries and inconsistency at quarterback, leading a group that fared well despite poor circumstances.

Despite entering the 2021 season with championship aspirations, the Seahawks lost five of their first eight games and never fully recovered, finishing in last place in the NFC West with a 7-10 record.

Dealt a bad hand - or in this case finger - by the midseason injury suffered by Russell Wilson, Seattle's passing game never ascended as hoped. Still, Tyler Lockett finished in the top 10 in receiving yardage and DK Metcalf nearly hit the 1,000-yard threshold again, leading a talented receiving corps that battled injuries, COVID, and inconsistent quarterback play throughout the season.

Looking back at the season in retrospect, how did Seattle's receiving corps perform as a unit in 2021? And what does the future hold at the position?
