2019 Fantasy Outlook
A fourth-round pick last year, Dissly quickly emerged as the cream of the crop in Seattle's timeshare at tight end, ripping off gains of 66, 34 and 24 yards before a patella tear Week 4 brought his rookie season to an early conclusion. It's a tricky injury for any player to bounce back from, but the young tight end at least has age (23 years old in July) and the timing of the injury (Sept. 30) working in his favor. While he likely will be limited or absent throughout the spring, 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 question marks 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

Dissly (kneecap) is on schedule in his recovery and could be a full go a few weeks into training camp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
ANALYSIS
This is positive news for a player whose training camp availability was murky at best. Dissly was able to resume running May 1 and seems to be staying on track with his recovery from a torn patellar tendon. Expect the team to give out a much more definitive timetable for the tight end's return once training camp nears. A healthy Dissly will need to recover in full to also hold off Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson for snaps this season.

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.
