Signs three-year deal with Seattle

Dissly is signing a three-year contract with the Seahawks, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The 2018 fourth-round pick will stick with the only team he's ever played for, presumably working as the No. 2 TE in a blocking-focused role. Dissly did show some receiving chops early in his career, but he's never been especially fast and hasn't made as much of an impact in the passing since he suffered major injuries his first two seasons in the NFL. He isn't likely to have much fantasy value behind fellow tight end Noah Fant, who is headed from Denver to Seattle as part of the Russell Wilson trade. Gerald Everett, meanwhile, figures to sign elsewhere.

Sidelined by heel

Dissly (heel) is inactive for Sunday's game against Arizona, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Dissly injured his heel in the team's Week 17 win over the Lions and was unable to practice during the week as a result. His season is now over, and he ends the campaign with 21 receptions for 231 yards and one touchdown across 15 games.

Questionable for Week 18

Dissly (heel) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Dissly was a non-participant at practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he'll have a chance to take the field in Week 18. If he's held out against the Cardinals, Colby Parkinson could see an uptick in playing time.

DNP Thursday

Dissly (heel) was absent from the Seahawks practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: The tight end has been absent from both of the Seahawks' first two practices of the week while dealing with a heel injury, putting his ability to play Sunday against the Cardinals in question. If Dissly is unable to play in Week 18, Colby Parkinson would operate as the primary reserve option behind Gerald Everett.

No practice Wednesday

Dissly (heel) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Dissly sustained an injury during a Week 17 win versus the Lions, which coach Pete Carroll clarified as a "heel bruise or something" after the 51-29 win, per Boyle. While he logged a DNP on the Seahawks' first practice report of Week 18 prep, Dissly has a pair of chances to fit in some activity ahead of Sunday's game at Arizona.

Hurts heel in Week 17

Dissly injured his heel in Sunday's 51-29 win over the Lions, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: "(Dissly) banged his heel," coach Pete Carroll said. "He's got a heel bruise or something. I'm not sure what it is right now." The backup tight end had one catch for eight yards before getting hurt. Dissly's status for the team's Week 18 trip to Arizona is up in the air.

Off of COVID-19 list

The Seahawks activated Dissly (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Dissly found himself on the COVID-19 list last Wednesday due to a positive test that forced him to miss this past Sunday's loss to the Bears. Now that he's back on the active roster, he can set his sights on setting new career highs in catches (he needs five more) and receiving yards (he needs 40 more) over the final two contests of the campaign.

Added to reserve/COVID-19

Dissly was moved to the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: Gerald Everett and/or Colby Parkinson should pick up more snaps if Dissly isn't available this Sunday against Chicago. The 265-pound tight end typically plays around half or more of Seattle's offensive snaps, but he hasn't seen more than four targets in a game all year.

Dec 22, 2021 1:21 PM EST

Catches one pass

Dissly caught his lone target for three yards in Tuesday's 20-10 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Dissly finished with a 46 percent snap share compared to Gerald Everett's 84 percent share. This has typically been the norm this season, especially when the Seahawks haven't been able to establish the run to the extent they'd prefer. With just 223 receiving yards through 14 games, Dissly shouldn't be on fantasy radars.

Seahawks-Rams moved to Tuesday

Dissly and the Seahawks will no longer play the Rams on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

Analysis: Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Rams organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, Los Angeles will be able to restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. After Tuesday's game, the Seahawks will face a quick turnaround for Week 16 with a Sunday matchup versus the Bears on Dec. 26.

Dec 17, 2021 1:28 PM EST

Season-high 38 yards

Dissly caught two of three targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Dissly recorded a 68 percent snap share, out-snapping Gerald Everett (61 percent) for the first time since Week 6. It's unclear if this will be the standard moving forward, but the Seahawks will likely lean on Everett more in negative game scripts. Dissly maintains limited fantasy appeal with 19 receptions for 220 yards and a touchdown through 13 games.

Dec 13, 2021 6:48 AM EST

Snares two passes

Dissly caught both of his targets for seven yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Dissly played 31 snaps (46 percent), marking his fourth straight game with less than a 53 percent snap share. Meanwhile, Gerald Everett has logged a 75 percent snap share or better in each of those games. Dissly is mostly being utilized as a run blocker in offensive coordinator Shane Waldron's offense, evidenced by his 17-182-1 line through 12 games.

Dec 6, 2021 10:07 AM EST

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.

Nov 30, 2021 5:25 PM EST

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.

Nov 22, 2021 9:12 AM EST

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.

Nov 15, 2021 8:55 AM EST

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.

Nov 1, 2021 7:42 AM EST

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.

Oct 26, 2021 8:25 PM EST

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.

Oct 18, 2021 10:33 AM EST

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.

Oct 8, 2021 8:09 AM EST

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.
