TE - SEA
Week 4 Outlook
Colby Parkinson, who has been recovering from a foot injury, is ahead of schedule and is expected to be active before the end of training camp.
Parkinson had to have surgery on his toe during the off-season, but appears to be ahead of schedule. Parkinson will be in a tough position battle as the Seahawks have good depth at the tight end position. Expect Greg Olsen and Will Dissly to lead Seattle in tight end snaps.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Parkinson had surgery to repair a break in his fifth metatarsal on his foot (outside, smallest toe) on June 2, 2020. That was the same day the Seahawks announced they had signed him to a rookie contract. Parkinson reportedly injured his foot while running routes.
Also known as a 'Jones fracture' this injury will take a couple months to fully heal, which could leave Colby Parkinson in doubt for the season opener. The fourth round selection is currently buried on Seattle's depth chart behind Greg Olsen, Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister. One should not expect Parkinson to be relevant in fantasy in his rookie season.
Stanford TE Colby Parkinson becomes the first Seahawk to officially sign his rookie deal with the team.
Parkinson brings with him a whole lot of size, measuring in at 6-foot-7. He joins a very crowded tight end room in Seattle that consists of Greg Olsen, Will Dissly, and Jacob Hollister to name a few. In his three years at Stanford, Parkinson caught 86 balls for 1,162 yards and 12 TDs. He’ll have to prove himself in training camp in order to find his way onto the 53-man roster this season.
The Seattle Seahawks have selected tight end, Colby Parkinson, with the No. 133 pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
The sure-handed Stanford tight end is an excellent addition to the Seattle Seahawks squad. During his last college season, Parkinson has 48 receptions for 589 yards and one touchdown. Deeper dynasty league managers could look to add him to rosters at some point this year, but owners in redraft formats can leave him on waivers for now. Parkinson is an interesting prospect for the future of Seahawks football and is projected to be a nice red-zone target for Russell Wilson.
