TE - SEA
Week 3 Outlook
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly "may be in position to hold the top spot on the depth chart" at TE, according to Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic.
The Seahawks lost Greg Olsen to retirement and Jacob Hollister signed a one-year deal with the Bills earlier this offseason. This led the team to bring in FA Gerald Everett, who previously played under current Seahawks offensive coordinator Shane Waldron in Los Angeles. Many in the fantasy community were thinking Everett would get the lion's share of TE targets in Seattle next season but Will Dissly appeared in all 16 games for the time in his career in 2020 and may have a leg up on him. Everett is "talented enough to be TE1 in this offense, though Dissly is in a contract year and coming off the first fully healthy season of his career. Thus, Dissly may be in position to hold the top spot on the depth chart and flash the star potential he displayed in 2018 and 2019," Duggar stated. It could end up being a time share between the two with Colby Parkinson mixing in on certain packages.
Will Dissly caught 2-of-2 targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in a 40-3 blowout win over the Jets in Week 14.
Dissly found the end zone in this one, but he's been difficult to trust of late, even without Greg Olsen in the lineup. He hasn't topped five targets or 38 yards in a single game this season, and has just two touchdowns on the year. He's a very low-end TE2 at best in Week 15 against Washington.
Will Dissly caught a 19-yard touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Vikings on Sunday Night Football.
The touchdown was his first of the season. Dissly just isn't seeing enough volume to be fantasy relevant right now. He can be left on your waiver wire ahead of a Week 6 bye for the Seahawks.
Will Dissly caught his lone target in Week 2 for nine yards as the Seahawks beat the Patriots 35-30.
There were reports throughout the week that said Dissly was going to become more involved in the offense. That clearly wasn't the case in Week 2, but he saw his fair share of snaps alongside Greg Olsen. Through two games, Dissly has just three catches for 17 yards on three targets. He can only hope to be more involved when the Seahawks take on the Cowboys in Week 3.
Will Dissly will be active for week 1 after returning from a torn Achilles suffered last season. Dissly is listed at the 2nd tight end on the Seahawks depth chart.
Dissly will be playing behind Greg Olsen and will probably be eased into action to start the season. It is great to see Dissly back and playing again, but he should be avoided in all fantasy leagues this week.
