Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (Achilles) is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday, Oct. 17, to repair his torn Achilles tendon, according to sources. He is expected to be ready for the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: Luke Willson likely will take over as the starting tight end and could receive some targets during games. He is not a starting fantasy option at this time but could be added to rosters as a No. 2 tight end if available.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (Achilles) is expected to miss the remainder of the 2019 season due to an Achilles injury suffered in the Week 6 game against the Cleveland Browns. 'Really unfortunate that we lose Will Dissly, who has been a fantastic part of our team,' head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Oct. 14. 'Just a young guy, but he's made a big impression early on all of us and we're going to miss the heck out of him as he recovers from an Achilles injury.'
Huddle Up: If Dissly is indeed done, he finishes with 23 grabs for 262 yards and four touchdowns across six games. He had emerged as a solid low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues due to his ability to find the end zone on a regular basis early on. Luke Willson and Jacob Hollister are the next men up after the team dealt Nick Vannett to Pittsburgh earlier this season.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (Achilles) suffered an Achilles tendon injury during the Week 6 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to look out for an update on Dissly's status in the next day or two. Luke Willson likely would take over the starting job if Dissly misses time but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly caught four passes for 81 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Dissly's three-game scoring streak came to an end, but he posted a season-high 81 yards receiving (he ran for another seven). He's an emerging top-10 fantasy tight end that should be owned in all formats

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly hauled in seven of his eight targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 versus the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: That's four touchdowns in three games for Dissly, who was a question mark to play early this year after suffering a torn patellar tendon four games into last season. It's hard to take him seriously as a reliable fantasy option considering he was drafted for his blocking prowess and lacks athleticism, but sometimes those limitations don't matter when a quarterback as good as Russell Wilson trusts him. While he is very much a sell-high option, he needs to be considered a fantasy starter given the lack of quality at the position.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly caught seven of his eight targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, and he has scored at least one touchdown in each of the last three games.
Huddle Up: Dissly has emerged as a steady weapon in the passing attack, logging at least five grabs and reaching 50 yards in three straight games. Fantasy owners should feel confident using him as a TE1.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly corralled six of his seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was the epitome of garbage-time production, as it came with no time remaining and the Seahawks trailing by 12. In six career games, he has five TDs on 20 catches. While it's obvious Russell Wilson trusts him in the red zone, his good fortune in terms of finding the end zone is going to dry up sooner or later. With that said, he has a dream matchup in Week 4 against an Arizona Cardinals defense that has been destroyed by tight ends so far.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) is good to go for Week 2, according to head coach Pete Carroll Wednesday, Sept 11.
Huddle Up: Dissly caught just one pass for 12 yards in Week 1. He started strong last season with a touchdown in each of the first two games but he suffered a season-ending injury in Week 4. He's a TE2 right now, but he could re-emerge in Seattle's run-heavy offense as a red-zone threat.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) reportedly suffered a setback with his surgically repaired knee in Week 1, according to comments made by head coach Pete Carroll.
