  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Quiet 2022 campaign

    Young finished the 2022 regular season with two catches (two targets) for 24 yards.

    The rookie seventh-round pick was effective enough on special teams to stay in the lineup even when he wasn't in the offensive game plan, but he finished with 105 offensive snaps over 13 games. He also caught his lone postseason target for an 11-yard gain. Young is a big-bodied receiver (6-3, 220) that ran a 4.47 40-yard dash, so he certainly has some upside. The former Division II receiver will need to make great strides during the offseason to secure an increased role in 2023.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Makes first NFL catches

    Young caught both of his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams.

    Young ranked fourth among the team's wide receivers with a 24 percent snap share, and he caught his first two NFL passes in the process. The seventh-round rookie is a standout athlete that will remain active because of his role on special teams, but his offensive duties will fluctuate based on the game plan during the playoffs.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: First career catch called back

    Young played two offensive snaps in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the 49ers and didn't record a catch.

    Young did haul in a 22-yard pass in the second quarter, but it was negated by a holding call. That would've been his first career catch. He could have more opportunities to snag his first pass in Week 16 versus the Chiefs because Tyler Lockett is expected to miss at least one game with a broken finger, leaving DK Metcalf and Marquise Goodwin as the top pass catchers. Young and Penny Hart will battle for the No. 3 job, and it wouldn't be surprising to see both players handle a modest snap count.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Plays one snap Week 12

    Young wasn't targeted while playing one of the Seahawks' 65 snaps on offense in Sunday's 40-34 overtime loss to the Raiders.

    Dee Eskridge's (hand) move to injured reserve ahead of the Week 12 contest didn't translate to any added opportunities on offense for Young. Rather than turning to Young to replace Eskridge as the Seahawks' No. 4 receiver, practice-squad call-up Laquon Treadwell (seven snaps) handled that role.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: No targets Sunday

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

    Young logged 13 offensive snaps in the divisional win because WR Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) was inactive. It's notable that WR Penny Hart was healthy but didn't handle an offensive snap, so it appears that Young has moved up to the No. 5 spot on the Seahawks wide receiver depth chart.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Not targeted in win

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants.

    Young logged just four offensive snaps, as he slotted in as the No. 5 wide receiver. He'll have a minimal role the rest of the season unless injuries pile up.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: No targets in win

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 37-23 win over the Chargers.

    Young handled a season-high 17 offensive snaps because DK Metcalf exited early with a knee injury. If Metcalf misses time, Young will likely slot in as the No. 4 wide receiver behind Tyler Lockett, Marquise Goodwin and Dee Eskridge. Penny Hart (hamstring) could run in front of Young when he returns, too.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Minimal role in win

    Young wasn't targeted in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cardinals.

    Young has only played in two games this season; he has been a healthy scratch in three games but also sat out once with a quadricep injury. The rookie could handle a few more snaps if Penny Hart, who was out with a hamstring injury Sunday, misses additional time, but Young won't be on fantasy radars this season.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Not listed on injury report

    Young doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Young didn't practice Wednesday due to a quadriceps injury that's kept him out since the season opener. However, he returned to practice in a limited fashion Thursday and, presumably, progressed to full participation Friday. The rookie seventh-round pick played nine total snaps (four offensive) during Week 1 but failed to record any counting stats.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Won't play Sunday

    Young (quadricep) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Brady Henderson of reports.

    Young practiced in a limited capacity to open the week Wednesday, but he's since failed to participate in either of Thursday's or Friday's sessions as he tends to a quadriceps issue. The 224-pound receiver saw four offensive snaps and five defensive snaps in the team's season opener against Denver; however, he's been sidelined in each of Seattle's subsequent three contests due to his injury. Young's next opportunity to return to action comes next Sunday against Arizona, where he'd likely serve as the Seahawks' No. 6 receiver behind Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, Marquise Goodwin (knee/back), Dee Eskridge and Penny Hart.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: No targets in win

    Young wasn't targeted in Monday's 17-16 win over the Broncos.

    Young logged four offensive snaps and is seemingly the fifth wide receiver in Seattle's offense. The rookie seventh-round pick still needs to develop before he makes a real impact in the NFL.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Survives cutdown day

    The Seahawks announced on Tuesday that Young earned a spot on the 53-man roster.

    A seventh-round pick out of Division II Lenoir-Rhyne, Young beat out third-year receiver Freddie Swain and rookie Bo Melton -- who was was selected four picks ahead of Young. The Seahawks had six receivers on their initial 53-man roster. Young isn't expected to have much of an impact this season, but his tools are intriguing for a long-term project. After all, he ran a 4.47 40-yard dash at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds.

  • Seahawks' Dareke Young: Receiving leader Friday

    Young caught three of five targets for 43 yards in Friday's 27-26 preseason loss to the Cowboys.

    Young started the game with the first-team offense and was targeted by Geno Smith twice on the first drive, though he dropped both passes. All three of his receptions were from Drew Lock in the second quarter. The rookie seventh-round pick ended up leading the team in receiving yards, too. It's certainly a positive sign that Young was handling first-team reps in the preseason finale, but he's far from a guarantee to make it past Tuesday's cuts.
