Dissly was off to a fast start to his rookie year before tearing his patellar tendon in Week 4. He had a 100-yard game to open the season and back-to-back games with three receptions. He did have just two catches for nine yards his last two games before getting injured, though. Dissly is likely the top backup for the Seahawks. Despite his big games last season, he is more of a blocking tight end that can be an asset to the running back. Dissly proved last year he can help as a pass catcher, though, and is improving in that area.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Dissly could have a big game or two like last year but expect hit or miss production. You probably don't want to use a draft pick on him just yet. He could get around 20 receptions for 250 yards with a few scores.
Its really, really easy to forget about Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly. After all, he only played in four games last year, suffering a season-ending knee injury early into Seattles Week 4 contest against the Cardinals. However, in basically just three games, Dissly did haul in eight receptions for 156 yards and a pair of touchdowns - numbers that could make him a top ten TE option next season if he can maintain them over a full 16-game slate. Seattle does have competition at that spot, with veteran Ed Dickson and Nick Vannett both in the picture, along with Jacob Hollister and even George Fant, a converted lineman who caught one pass last year for a nine-yard gain. However, if Dissly is healthy he should be the starter, and while Seattle is notorious for under-utilizing their tight ends (remember Jimmy Graham?) Dissly could be a nice late-round flyer. Quarterback Russell Wilson connected well with Dissly last season, and his size could make him a nice red-zone target for a team that needs them. Dont take Dissly too early, but keep an eye on him in deeper leagues - particularly best-ball formats or leagues that start two tight ends.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly (Achilles) will undergo surgery on Thursday to fix his torn Achilles, according to a source. He will miss the remainder of the season but should be good to go for 2020. The 23-year-old was breaking out in 2019 with 23 catches on 27 targets for 262 yards and four touchdowns, so this is a big loss for Seattle and fantasy owners alike. In his absence, Luke Willson is expected to be the main pass-catcher, but he's a desperation, low-end TE2 target. Expect quarterback Russell Wilson to lean more on receivers Tyler Lockett and rookie D.K. Metcalf.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly went down in Week 6 against the Browns with an injury to his achilles. The injury was non-contact, and Dissly was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the game. At the time of the injury, Dissly was just targeted just once and failed to haul it in. Luke Willson is in at tight end for the rest of the afternoon, and currently has one catch for five yards. Dissly's Week 7 status is in doubt and needs to be monitored.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Dissly missed last season with an injury to his right knee, so this is a brand new injury to his left Achilles. We don't know the severity yet, but it was bad enough to immediately rule him out for the rest of the game. It took him a couple of minutes to get off the turf and it sure seems like this is a serious injury. Stay tuned. At tight end, Luke Willson will take over and he's an athletic TE who may become a threat.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly was drafted to block, and it turned out he could catch. He's now been fully integrated into Seattle's offense, and this week could be huge for him. Dissly specializes in working the middle of the field, and Cleveland has really struggled to defend that area. Last time he faced a secondary that struggled against tight ends, he hauled in seven passes and a touchdown. Don't be surprised if Russell Wilson looks his way on a regular basis as the game gets rolling. Dissly already has four touchdowns this season, and he's primed to tack on to that total this weekend.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly added another 81 yards to his season total on Thursday night against the Rams, and he played a central role in a highlight that will likely accompany Russell Wilson for years. Dissly was on the receiving end of a casual 31-yard rainbow from Wilson that was dropped over Dissly's shoulder so perfectly that it literally hit him in the facemask. It allowed Dissly to record a 38-yard gain on a play where the defender played perfect coverage. Dissly was held without a score this game, but he was obviously one of Wilson's favorite targets. He's now caught 23 of 26 passes sent his way, and he's averaging over 50 yards per game. It looks like Dissly's going to get plenty of chances moving forward.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly came through against a weak Cardinals crew that struggles against opposing tight ends, but he'll have a bit of a tougher matchup on Thursday. That said, there is still potential. LA has been one of the stingiest teams in the league overall against opposing tight ends, but they have allowed a pair of touchdowns on just four passes to tight ends in the red zone. To top that off, the Rams will be without one of their starting linebackers and part of their safety rotation. With all that stacked up, it wouldn't be surprising at all if Russell Wilson's new favorite red zone target sees some more chances.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly had his rookie season come to an end 364 days ago when he suffered a torn patellar tendon on the field in Arizona. This time around, not only did he finish the game healthy, but he made a critical touchdown catch to ensure Seattle's victory. Dissly has now racked up four touchdowns in his last three games, and it's reasonable to assume that he's not done. Dissly has also topped 50 yards receiving in three straight games, and he's quickly putting himself in the mix as one of Russell Wilson's favorite receivers. With a gameplan that focuses so much on ground-and-pound and keeping everything tight in the center of the field, owners should expect Dissly to continue to see regular opportunities.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly has suddenly sprung onto the scene in the last two weeks as he's hauled in three touchdowns, and the good times should keep rolling against the Cardinals on Sunday. Arizona's defense is allowing a whopping 29 points on average to opposing tight ends, nearly 40% more than the next worst defense. With Patrick Peterson lurking outside, opposing offenses have been carving up the middle with big bodies, and Dissly looks like he should fit right in. Seattle doesn't have a long history of pumping shot after shot to their tight ends, but they seem to have warmed up to using Dissly in those critical situations now. Expect him to get more opportunities to score in Week 4.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly was on the right end of a reception once again as he was the chosen one for the team's final garbage-time touchdown of the game on Sunday. Dissly was targeted seven times, caught six passes, and tallied 62 yards in the game, exact copies of his season stats coming into the matchup. The rainy conditions seemed to make Dissly more appealing to quarterback Russell Wilson, and it looks like he trusts that Dissly is a solid release valve when he finds himself in trouble. Be wary of Seattle's knack for letting certain receivers go to rot quickly after they look great, but for now, Dissly could be a real part of the offense moving forward.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly caught his first touchdown of the season last Sunday, and it was quite the relief for him. Dissly doubted that he'd ever play in the NFL again after he tore his patellar tendon last September, and the concern jumped up again when he left the team's Week 1 game early due to banging knees with a teammate. Now, it looks like he might be able to find a regular spot in the rotation of the offense. Dissly ended up hauling in two touchdowns in the win against Pittsburgh, and suddenly, teams are going to have to start scheming for him. With Seattle looking like they'll have no problem reaching the red zone regularly, expect Dissly to be a big, attractive target for Russell Wilson.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly had a big day on Sunday as he brought down a pair of touchdowns against the Steelers. The second-year player generated some excitement last season before he went down with an injury, and he's already been on a couple injury reports this year but this is his potential. Dissly's catches were both on easy straight shots right up the middle of the field, and they looked a whole lot like the types of plays fans always thought would head to Jimmy Graham when he was wearing a Seahawks jersey. If Dissly can establish himself as a solid red zone option, he could see a lot of action for Seattle. He'll need to stay healthy first though.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that tight end Will Dissly (knee) is good to go for Week 2 against the Steelers after leaving the Week 1 game with a knee injury. Dissly caught one of his two targets for 12 yards before leaving the game last Sunday. In a run-first offense that rarely uses its tight ends, Dissly is off the fantasy radar on the road in Pittsburgh.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly (knee) suffered a right knee injury late in the Week 1 game against the Bengals and was listed as doubtful to return. Dissly caught one of his two targets for 12 yards in the game before leaving. In an offense that runs the ball a lot and doesn't involve its tight ends all that much, Dissly has very minimal fantasy value in the deepest of leagues. If Dissly needs to miss Week 2 or beyond, Nick Vannett would have more opportunities to catch passes.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly continues to recover from the torn patellar tendon he suffered last season, but he still hasn't made any game appearances. Head coach Pete Carroll made a point of addressing this with reporters this week, discussing that the team is happy with Dissly's recovery and presence in practice, but he'd like to get him some time in a preseason game or two since Dissly is still such a young player. That said, he still left the door open as to when that might occur. Dissly showed some flashes of serious receiving potential early last season before the injury, so he could be huge if he can fully return.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly was penciled in to be the starter this season after coming back from a torn patellar tendon that he suffered last September, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is already discussing using a committee for the position. Schottenheimer made a point of complimenting Dissly's abilities as both a pass-catcher and a blocker, but he then immediately launched into all the other possible candidates for the position. It's not clear if this is just to keep the team's fourth-rounder from 2018 working hard, but it could be a concern for those in deep leagues who think he could be a sleeper.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly's rookie campaign was cut short after four games due to a patellar injury, but he posted encouraging numbers in those games, catching eight passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns. He's expected to be healthy and ready to return at some point during training camp. Dissly's ability as a blocker is what got him on the field last year, but he also showed some prowess in the receiving game, which could help him rise to the top of the depth chart this year. Still, Seattle's tight end group is a confusing situation and Dissly's still a little too raw to be trusted to be a consistent source of fantasy production in 2019, though it's worth keeping an eye on him in deeper leagues.
