May require surgery

The Seahawks are still determining whether Dissly will require surgery to repair his knee injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: The exact nature of Dissly's injury is unclear, as it was termed a contusion by Pete Carroll. However, Dissly was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, and the possibility of surgery suggests that the issue could be more severe. He served among a rotation of options at tight end with Seattle this season, and he managed 34 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns across 15 games.

Hits IR with knee contusion

Seattle placed Dissly on injured reserve Tuesday with an injury head coach Pete Carroll has labeled as a knee contusion, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Though Dissly's injury doesn't sound especially serious, his 2022 campaign will come to an end unless the Seahawks secure a playoff spot and make an improbable run to the NFC Championship Game. The 26-year-old appeared in 15 games this season, recording 34 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns on 38 targets. Dissly's absence for the final two games should free up more snaps for Colby Parkinson, who steps in as Seattle's No. 2 tight end behind Noah Fant.

Getting knee checked out

Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Dissly banged his knee during Saturday's 24-10 loss to the Chiefs and is set to undergo further testing, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: The knee issue may in part explain why Dissly logged just 38 percent of the snaps on offense -- his lowest share of the season -- in Week 16 to finish the day with a 19-yard reception on his lone target. Dissly's upcoming tests should provide a clearer picture of his injury while also helping to clarify whether he'll be available for the Seahawks' Week 17 matchup with the Jets.

Two catches in loss

Dissly caught two of three targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Panthers.

Analysis: Dissly was limited during the practice week due to a calf injury, and he appeared to be held back during Sunday's game, as he handled a season-low 40 percent snap share. That wasn't the cause of this lackluster performance, however, as he has recorded more than 30 receiving yards in a game just once since Week 4.

Suiting up in Week 14

Dissly (calf) is active for Sunday's contest against the Panthers.

Analysis: Dissly's practice reps were managed during Week 14 prep due to a calf injury, as he followed an absence Wednesday with back-to-back limited showings to wrap it up before the Seahawks gave him a questionable designation. Coach Pete Carroll noted Friday that Dissly would be ready to play Sunday, according to John Boyle of the team's official site, and that has come to fruition. Dissly will continue to split TE reps with Noah Fant, which has amounted to a 30-297-3 line on 33 targets for the former in 12 games this season.

On track to play Week 14

Dissly (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, though head coach Pete Carroll said Friday that the tight end is ready to play this weekend, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Dissly is taking an injury designation into the weekend after he failed to practice Wednesday before returning to the field as a limited participant Thursday and Friday, but it sounds like the restrictions he faced were mostly for precautionary reasons. Assuming he avoids the inactive list ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, Dissly should continue to work in a timeshare at tight end with Noah Fant. Though Fant held the edge in playing time in last week's win over the Rams, Dissly was still on the field for 54 percent of the offensive snaps and finished with two catches for 22 yards on two targets.

Gets Week 14 questionable tag

Dissly (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Dissly will carry an injury designation into the weekend after he failed to practice Wednesday before upgrading to a limited showing Thursday. Since he was able to conclude Week 14 prep on the practice field, Dissly would seem to have a good chance at playing this weekend, but an official ruling on his status won't come until Seattle unveils its inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. If Dissly can't go Sunday, Noah Fant would have a clear path to the No. 1 tight end role after splitting reps with Dissly for much of the season.

Logs limited session Thursday

Dissly (calf) was a limited participant in the Seahawks' practice Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Dissly popped up with a calf issue on Seattle's injury report Wednesday, thus failing to practice for the first time this season. It's encouraging to see he was able to increase his activity the following day, though his status on Friday's final injury report will provide a better outlook for his availability heading into Sunday against Carolina. Dissly has seen slightly fewer targets (33) than fellow tight end Noah Fant (46) over 12 games this season, and these two should strike a similar balance when both are available.

DNP on Wednesday

Dissly (calf) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Dissly hasn't had any practice limitations this season and earns better than 50 percent of the snaps most weeks, resulting in between one and four catches per game through 12 contests. Overall, he has a modest 30-297-3 line on 33 targets. Considering Dissly wasn't able to take part in drills to kick off this week, his status will be watched as the weekend approaches to get a sense of his availability for Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.

Snares two passes

Dissly caught both of his targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Dissly and fellow tight end Noah Fant typically handle the same snap count in any given week, but Fant has been more productive as a receiver this year, especially lately. Over the last eight games, Fant has posted a 27-326-1 line on 35 targets while Dissly has registered an 18-181-0 line on 21 targets.

Dec 5, 2022 3:25 PM EST


Held to 17 yards

Dissly caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 40-34 overtime loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: Dissly logged 48 of 65 offensive snaps (74 percent) while Noah Fant trailed closely behind with 40 snaps. Fant finished with three catches for 34 yards. Dissly hasn't scored since Week 4, and he has yet to record more than 45 yards in a game this year.

Brings in two passes

Dissly caught both of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 21-16 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Dissly handled a season-low 21 percent of the offensive snaps, which wasn't far behind Noah Fant (26). The Seahawks frequently utilize two tight-end sets, but they limited their tight-end usage because they were trailing most of the game. Regardless, fantasy managers shouldn't have high expectations for Dissly on a weekly basis, as he has put up a 26-258-3 line through 10 games.

Rings up 24 yards

Dissly caught three of four targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Dissly and Noah Fant both played 42 offensive snaps, but Fant capitalized on the opportunity with five catches for a team-high 96 yards. Head coach Pete Carroll continues to roll out offensive personell that features two or three tight ends, so Dissly's playing time is secure all season. However, his fantasy value continues to depend on whether he can find the end zone, as the fifth-year tight end has yet to record more than 45 receiving yards in a game this year.

Nov 7, 2022 6:34 AM EST


Hauls in two passes

Dissly caught both of his targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants. He also recovered a fumble in punt coverage.

Analysis: Dissly played 50 of the team's 64 offensive snaps (78 percent). He finished ahead of Noah Fant (46 snaps) and Colby Parkinson (23). While Dissly isn't a dependable fantasy option, he has caught 21 passes for 206 yards and three touchdowns this season, so he can yield DFS dividends when he finds the end zone.

Oct 31, 2022 6:37 AM EST


Four catches against Chargers

Dissly caught all four of his targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 37-23 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: The tight end didn't post huge numbers, but he tied for second in Seattle in both receptions and receiving yards. Dissly also tied his season highs in catches and targets while setting a new season high in yards, topping his 43 yards from the Seahawks' opener, but that modest production makes him little more than a TD-dependent fantasy option heading into a Week 8 clash with the Giants.

Oct 23, 2022 6:23 PM EST


One catch in win

Dissly caught his lone target for 12 yards in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Dissly narrowly out-snapped Noah Fant in Week 6, but Fant ended up leading the Seahawks with six catches for 45 yards. It has been difficult to trust either tight end this season, as they're both touchdown-dependent fantasy options. Fortunately, Dissly has found the end zone three times through six games.

Oct 17, 2022 11:10 AM EST


Snares two passes

Dissly caught two of three targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 39-32 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Dissly has yet to catch more than three passes in a game. He has registered 14 catches for 137 yards and three touchdowns through five games and has been recently been out-snapping fellow tight end Noah Fant. Dissly will be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option as long as his usage maintains.

Oct 10, 2022 8:35 AM EST


Another touchdown in win

Dissly brought in all four targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' 48-45 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: Dissly got open down the seam for a 17-yard scoring grab in the first quarter to ignite the scoring on what would be a prolific afternoon both teams' offenses. Dissly has shown some chemistry early with Geno Smith, now having recorded at least three catches and a touchdown grab in three of the first four games of the season. The fifth-year veteran could have another solid role in a Week 5 road battle against a Saints team that typically features strong cornerback play that tends to sometimes funnel action toward tight ends.

Oct 2, 2022 3:46 PM EST


Scores in Week 3

Dissly caught all three of his targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: Dissly scored for the second time in three weeks, and he led all Seahawks tight ends with 43 offensive snaps (61 percent). He has outplayed Noah Fant so far with eight catches for 77 yards and two scores. Dissly is a touchdown-dependent fantasy option.

Sep 26, 2022 6:01 AM EST


Two catches in loss

Dissly caught both of his targets for no gain in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: After producing 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, Dissly regressed and actually handled less playing time than Noah Fant. Dissly played 23 offensive snaps while Fant logged 26 snaps. The two will continue to split snaps going forward, and it will be difficult to rely on either player in fantasy.
