Season-low snap share

Dissly caught both of his targets for 19 yards in Monday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

Analysis: Dissly logged 16 of a possible 47 offensive snaps, marking a season-low 36 percent. Meanwhile, Gerald Everett played 37 snaps and caught five passes for 37 yards and a score on a team-high nine targets. Dissly isn't a viable fantasy option as long as Everett is in the fold.

Snags one pass

Dissly caught one pass (three targets) for 16 yards in Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: Dissly has recorded 13 receptions for 156 yards and a touchdown through 10 games. He finished with 25 of 49 snaps Sunday while Gerald Everett logged 42. That has been the trend for the last few weeks, though neither tight end has shown enough consistency to be a weekly fantasy option.

Registers 22 yards

Dissly caught both of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 17-0 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Dissly lost six yards on a catch in the first quarter but rumbled for 28 yards on his second catch of the game in the second quarter. The fourth-year tight end hasn't caught more than two passes in a game since Week 1, and he has registered just 12 receptions for 140 yards and a score thus far.

Second straight targetless outing

Dissly wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-7 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Dissly didn't receive a target for a second straight week. He now has 12 targets through eight games, translating to 10 receptions for 118 yards and a score. Dissly needs to find the end zone to be fantasy relevant, but that will be tough as long as Gerald Everett is healthy.

No targets Monday

Dissly wasn't targeted in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Dissly scored his first touchdown of the season in Week 6. However, he failed to receive a target for the second time this season in Week 7 despite recording 40 offensive snaps, ahead of Gerald Everett (33). Dissly has now produced 10 receptions (12 targets) for 118 yards and a touchdown through seven contests.

Snares first TD of 2021

Dissly caught both targets for eight yards and a score in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: The Seahawks shifted to a run-heavy game plan in the second half, so Dissly out-snapped Gerald Everett 47-31. Still, Dissly wasn't utilized much in the passing game. He has received just 12 targets through six games. The Washington product will be a touchdown-dependant fantasy option moving forward.

Registers 29 yards in loss

Dissly caught two of four targets for 29 yards in Thursday's 26-17 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: With Gerald Everett in COVID-19 protocol, Dissly logged 57 of 65 offensive snaps and finished third on the team in targets. However, he didn't offer fantasy managers much with the opportunity, and his reign as the clear No. 1 tight end likely won't last long, as Everett is expected to return in Week 6 against the Steelers.

Snags two passes

Dissly caught both targets for five yards in Sunday's 28-21 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Gerald Everett is on the COVID-19 list and missed Sunday's game, so Dissly logged 48 of 56 offensive snaps (82 percent). Even with the increased role, Dissly couldn't conjure up much offense, though it didn't help that Russell Wilson threw just 23 times for 149 yards. If Everett is still out for Thursday's game against the Rams, Dissly will have some DFS appeal but nothing more.

Brings in one pass

Dissly caught his lone target for 39 yards in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Dissly handled 20 offensive snaps while Gerald Everett recorded 42 snaps. Everett finished with five receptions (five targets) for 54 yards, as he serves in more of a pass-catching role than Dissly, who is the team's best blocking tight end. Dissly only has touchdown-dependent fantasy upside in Week 4 against the 49ers.

Sep 27, 2021 8:03 AM EST


No targets Week 2

Dissly didn't receive a target in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Dissly finished with 26 offensive snaps while Gerald Everett logged 43 snaps. Everett was targeted just twice, as the tight ends had a slow day in Seattle's offense. Both tight ends have tough matchups ahead, as their next two matchups are against the Vikings with LB Eric Kendricks and 49ers with LB Fred Warner.

Sep 20, 2021 7:52 AM EST


Gains 37 yards

Dissly caught all three of his targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Meanwhile, fellow tight end Gerald Everett registered two catches for 20 yards and a score. Dissly is locked into playing time because of his blocking acumen, but he'll be a touchdown-dependant fantasy option this year.

Sep 12, 2021 6:48 PM EST


Targetless in preseason debut

Dissly played 10 snaps in Saturday's 27-0 preseason win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Dissly has a locked-in role as the team's best blocking tight end, and the only reason he played Saturday was because the Seahawks only have a few healthy tight ends. Gerald Everett also played and caught his lone target for two yards. New OC Shane Waldron often rolled out two tight-end sets, which is a positive sign for Dissly, though Everett will likely end up catching more passes this year.

Should compete for top role

Dissly will compete for the No. 1 tight-end job in 2021 following the free-agent arrival of Gerald Everett, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Dissly showed promise in each of his first two NFL campaigns, recording 31 receptions for 413 yards and six touchdowns through 10 games. Both seasons were cut short due to two devastating injuries -- a torn patellar tendon and a torn Achilles. The 24-year-old managed to stay healthy for the entire 2020 season, finishing with a 24-251-2 line. With a healthy offseason ahead of him, the Seahawks are hoping Dissly can return to pre-injury form, but they signed Gerald Everett as insurance. Everett is the favorite for the No. 1 job after receiving $6 million guaranteed on a one-year deal. However, Dissly will garner plenty of playing time because of his blocking abilities, so he should have a chance to claim the top spot in training camp.

Stays healthy in 2020

Dissly caught 24 passes (29 targets) for 251 yards and two touchdowns over 16 games during the 2020 season.

Analysis: Dissly led the Seahawks' tight end room in receiving yards despite running routes on just 66.9 percent of offensive snaps, fewer than both Jacob Hollister and Greg Olsen. The 2018 fourth-round pick flashed offensive upside in both of his first two seasons, producing a combined 31-418-6 line over 10 games before suffering a torn patellar tendon and a torn Achilles in consecutive seasons. Coming back from both of those injuries was a feat by itself, but there are still questions about whether he can return to the pass-catching player he was beforehand. Dissly will have a chance to answer those questions in the final year of his rookie contract in 2021, but he may have to share reps with Hollister, who will be a free agent in March, once again.

Finishes season with 24 catches

Dissly was targeted twice and caught a 20-yard pass in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Dissly led Seattle's tight ends in Week 17 with Greg Olsen (foot) inactive after a "flare up." The Washington product out-snapped Jacob Hollister 49-41. Dissly finished the regular season with a 24-251-2 line over 16 games. Perhaps his most impressive accomplishment was staying healthy all year after his first two NFL seasons were cut short due to a patella tear and an Achilles tear, respectively. Dissly and Hollister will continue to split reps in the first playoff round against the Rams even if Olsen returns.

Jan 4, 2021 3:40 AM EST


Snags three passes

Dissly caught all three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Dissly led the Seahawks' tight ends in snaps despite Greg Olsen's (foot) return to the lineup. Olsen played just 12 snaps, and it's uncertain whether that pitch count will remain in place or if his workload will ramp up moving forward. Regardless, Dissly should continue to handle a decent workload because of his blocking abilities. He's nevertheless an undependable fantasy option with a 23-231-2 line through 15 games.

No targets against Washington

Dissly wasn't targeted in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington.

Analysis: Dissly played 37 snaps on offense, as he was out-snapped by Jacob Hollister (40 snaps) for a second straight game. Hollister finished with a 2-17-1 line. Even with Greg Olsen (foot) out of the lineup, neither tight end has distanced himself from the other in regards to fantasy utility.

Dec 21, 2020 9:16 AM EST


Finds paydirt in win

Dissly caught both targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Dissly found the end zone for the second time since rupturing his Achilles in Week 6 of the 2019 season. He continues to look more comfortable on the field, and he likely would've played more than 49 percent of the snaps if coach Pete Carroll didn't rest starters in the fourth quarter. Dissly's still a touchdown-dependant fantasy option this season.

Dec 14, 2020 8:30 AM EST


Leads tight end corps

Dissly recorded four receptions on five targets for 28 yards in Week 13 against the Giants.

Analysis: Dissly has been limited as a pass-catcher for much of the season and was held catchless in Week 12 against the Eagles. However, he bounced back to post his first performance with more than two catches on the campaign. Dissly worked exclusively in short areas of the field as his longest catch went for only 10 yards, limiting his production. Even with the relatively strong volume, it will be difficult to trust Dissly moving forward as he has to share targets with fellow tight end Jacob Hollister as well as standout wide receivers D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Dec 6, 2020 7:03 PM EST


Not targeted Monday

Dissly didn't receive a target in Monday's 23-17 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: In the first game without Greg Olsen (foot), Dissly out-snapped Jacob Hollister by a 48-37 margin. However, Hollister received five targets compared to Dissly's goose egg. Hollister didn't do anything with the looks, turning them into two receptions for 11 yards. Dissly is the better blocker of the two, so his snap count should remain consistent regardless. His fantasy value remains low.
