Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) is 'way ahead of schedule'
in his recovery from knee surgery, but he will not play in the
preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Dissly has a golden opportunity to establish himself with Ed
Dickson sidelined for at least a month. It appears Nick Vannett
will get the chance to make a move for a larger role.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly
(knee) is believed to have suffered a torn patellar tendon and he
is expected to miss the rest of the season, a source said Sunday,
Huddle Up: Dissly was pretty productive over his first few games, but the
rookie will apparently have a lengthy rehab process before he
plays in another meaningful game again. Nick Vannett will likely
take over the team's primary tight end option.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) left the Week 4 game
against the Arizona Cardinals due to an apparent right knee
injury and he was carted off.
Huddle Up: With Dissly on the shelf, the only active remaining tight end for
the Seahawks is Nick Vannett. We'll have more on Dissly's status
going forward after the game.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly gathered three receptions for 42
yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 loss against the Chicago
Bears on Monday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Dissly was expected to be nothing more than a blocking tight end,
but he has shined in the pass offense with six grabs for 147
yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets through two games. Don't
get crazy and spend a chunk of your FAAB budget on him, but he is
looking like he will be able to help fantasy owners. Keep in
mind, though, his touchdown came in the final seconds on Monday,
and he nearly had a very average line.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly compiled 105 yards receiving and
a touchdown on three catches in Week 1 versus the Denver Broncos,
becoming the first tight end in NFL history with at least 100
receiving yards and a TD reception in his NFL debut.
Huddle Up: The irony of this feat is that Dissly was drafted in large part
because of his blocking prowess and to serve as the complementary
half to Nick Vannett. As difficult as it will be for owners
desperate for tight end production, Vannett remains the better
bet for TE2 numbers moving forward.

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly caught three of his five targets
for 105 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 loss to the Denver
Broncos in Week 1.
Huddle Up: The rookie flashed some explosiveness from the tight end
position, and he could help fill the void in the offense left by
Jimmy Graham's departure. Keep a close eye on Dissly over the
next game or two, and he could be worth an immediate add if you
need tight end help.

The Seattle Seahawks selected Washington TE Will Dissly with the
120th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Dissly could have a decent role as a rookie because the team does
not have a clear starter at the position. Owners can keep an eye
on him during training camp but he would not be more than a No. 2
tight end in any league.
