TE - JAC
Week 7 Outlook
The Jaguars signed free agent tight end Jacob Hollister on Thursday afternoon.
Hollister was surprisingly cut by the Bills ahead of this past Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. The now-27-year-old posted 558 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns over his last two seasons with the Seahawks. He reunites with former Seattle offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who is now Jacksonville's passing game coordinator. Hollister could see usage as the Jaguars' No. 1 tight end as soon as he learns the offense.
The Bills released TE Jacob Hollister.
This move is a bit of a surprise. Dawson Know and Tommy Sweeney will enter the season as Buffalo's two tight ends. Hollister could land somewhere else before the season begins, but he's unlikely to have fantasy value this year.
Joe Buscaglia of the Athletic is reporting that Buffalo Bills TE Jacob Hollister could be the team’s starter in 2021.
Hollister could be the Bills starting tight end this season if Dawson Knox struggles. “Hollister’s athleticism, connection with Allen and the potential opportunity if Knox falters in the first two months should keep Hollister on the watch list for now, ” per Buscaglia. The 27-year-old signed a one-year deal with Buffalo during the offseason. He hauled in 25 receptions for 209 yards and three touchdowns across 16 games for the Seahawks in 2020. The former Seattle Seahawk will be reunited with Buffalo’s star QB Josh Allen, who played with Hollister at Wyoming. Hollister is currently 49th among all tight ends in the latest expert consensus draft rankings, but expect that number to rise if he's able to win the Bills starting TE gig over Knox.
TE Jacob Hollister is signing a one-year deal with the Bills.
Hollister was third on the Seahawks TE depth chart behind Will Dissly and Greg Olsen in 2020. He became a free agent and ultimately ended up in Buffalo on a one-year deal. Hollister will have a chance to compete with Dawson Knox for the Bills starting TE gig. The 27-year-old hauled in 25 receptions for 209 yards and three touchdowns across 16 games for the Seahawks in 2020. He’ll be reunited with Buffalo’s star QB Josh Allen, who played with Hollister at Wyoming.
Jacob Hollister caught 2-of-6 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in a Week 16 win over the Rams.
Hollister caught a touchdown for a second straight game. He totaled just 17 yards however on six targets. He seems to have taken over as the Seahawks’ primary tight end down the stretch, but is still limited due to his very low yards per target average.
