Pittsburgh Steelers TE Nick Vannett registered two receptions for 28 yards in his team debut in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Vannett came over from the Seattle Seahawks this week with Vance McDonald sidelined and Xavier Grimble hitting the Reserve/Injured list. He is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy formats, even if McDonald is forced to miss Week 5 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Seattle Seahawks TE Nick Vannett posted three receptions for 43 yards on four targets in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Vannett is it in Seattle among the tight ends, as his biggest competition, Will Dissly, went down with a knee injury a couple of weeks ago. Still, he is only worth a look as a low-end TE2 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 6 against the Raiders in London.

Seattle Seahawks TEs Will Dissly and Nick Vannett are on pace for a combined 80 receptions, 1,130 yards and 13 touchdowns, and they could add to their season totals against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, a team which plays a lot of nickel defense.
Huddle Up: Beat writer Bob Condotta mentions that the two tight ends could find favorable matchups to exploit underneath. Vannett has posted eight receptions already this season after posting 15 over his first two years in the league. Still, he is a risky fantasy play. Dissly has actually been the better option to date, picking up seven grabs for 151 yards and two scores. But even he is just a TE2 at best.
