A sitting duck is an easy target.
But it's not a 'euphemism'. A euphemism is when you say someone 'passed on' instead of 'died'. It's a word that tries to make the hard reality sound a little easier to bear.

Yes. It's not a euphemism; it's a metaphor.

Not really a euphemism, but the meaning is correct.
While it may be considered an idiom, "sitting duck" is more like a simile.
