TE - SEA - IR
Week 13 Outlook
Seahawks TE Greg Olsen (foot) has officially been placed on Injured Reserve after rupturing his plantar fascia in Week 11 vs. the Cardinals.
Olsen is expected to miss the remainder of the season with the injury, which means it’ll be Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister operating as the Seahawks’ top two tight ends for the foreseeable future.
Seahawks' TE Greg Olsen ruptured his plantar fascia against the Cardinals Thursday night and is in jeopardy of missing the rest of the season, if not longer.
Olsen has dealt with multiple foot issues dating back to 2017, including this same injury in 2018. Olsen has had a great career and is also a talented broadcaster. Could this be the injury that finally forces him to hang up his cleats and move to the booth? Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister should split the workload moving forward. Dissly has been a favorite red-zone target of Russell Wilson's in the past, but he also has a long history of injuries. It's hard to dub any Seahawks' TEs a fantasy option at this moment until we see their usage moving forward.
According to Seahawks HC Pete Carroll, TE Greg Olsen has a fascia injury, and that the Seahawks fear it's a rupture.
Olsen had two receptions for 20 yards before going down with a non-contact injury in the fourth quarter. Given HC Pete Carroll's outlook, it's not looking good for the 14-year veteran. Fantasy managers should plan to move on from Olsen and expect a combination of Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister to see more snaps in place of Olsen.
Seahawks tight end Greg Olsen left Thursday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals with a non-contact injury in the fourth quarter and had to be helped off the field by trainers. After visiting the blue medical tent, he was eventually carted to the locker room.
Olsen came off the line to block on a play but appeared to suffer an injury to his left foot prior to being touched. He looked to be in pain and immediately waved for the trainers to come onto the field, and those trainers eventually helped him leave the field. It is safe to assume that he is out for the remainder of this game while we await word on the severity of his injury.
Greg Olsen caught 2-of-4 targets for 33 yards in a 23-16 loss to the Rams in Week 10.
Olsen played the most significant snap share of all the Seahawks’ tight ends, but it didn’t turn into much production for the veteran. All three of Olsen, Will Dissly, and Jacob Hollister should be left on the waiver wire moving forward.
