2019 Fantasy Outlook
A fourth-round pick last year, Dissly quickly emerged as the cream of the crop in Seattle's timeshare at TE, ripping off gains of 66, 34 and 24 yards before a patella tear Week 4 brought his rookie season to a halt. It's a tricky injury for any player to bounce back from, but the young tight end at least has age (23) and the timing of the injury (Sept. 30) working in his favor. While he didn't practice at OTAs or minicamp, Dissly will be about 10 months removed from the injury when Seattle opens training camp in late July. At that point he'll battle for snaps with Nick Vannett, Ed Dickson and Jacob Hollister, a group utterly lacking in upside. Given the questions Seattle faces at wide receiver with Doug Baldwin retiring, Dissly has a chance to emerge as one of Russell Wilson's preferred targets near the goal line. Read Past Outlooks

October 19, 2019
The Seahawks placed Dissly (Achilles) on injured reserve Saturday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Reed underwent surgery to repair his torn Achilles earlier this week. The procedure went well, according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com, which gives hope that the emerging tight end could recover a few months ahead of the typical timeframe for such an injury. Additionally, Dissly's placement on injured reserve allows the Seahawks room for Jarran Reed on the 53-man roster.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Dissly is thought to be the top run-blocking tight end of the 2018 NFL Draft. This was a key reason why he was picked by the Seahawks in the fourth round. The 21-year-old only had three touchdown catches in his final two seasons at Washington. However, Ed Dickson isn't making progress on his quad injury, which could make Dissly the No. 2 tight end and give him more opportunities. Dissly's fantasy value remains low still.
