The Jaguars signed TE Jacob Hollister. The 27-year-old owns just 74 catches across 4 NFL seasons and was dumped by the Bills at final cuts. But he might just be the best TE in Jacksonville. His competition for that title: James O'Shaughnessy, Chris Manhertz and Luke Farrell. We'll keep an eye on the situation early this season, but avoid it in fantasy lineups for now.

The Bills are releasing TE Jacob Hollister, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That's not a shocking move vs. the meager 1-year contract Hollister signed and his limited production in Seattle. But Hollister was the biggest addition Buffalo made to a TE corps that disappointed in 2020. So Hollister's release seems like at least a slight vote in favor of Dawson Knox. The incumbent Bills TE is at least interesting as a late-round stash in TE-premium fantasy football drafts.

Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic believes Bills TE Dawson Knox is “quickly speeding away” with the starting job. Free agent addition Jacob Hollister has missed most of training camp with a back injury. Per Buscaglia, Knox has “looked impressive” outside of 1 drop. Perhaps his development is why Buffalo hasn’t made a move for Zach Ertz. Knox, only 24, is currently coming off the board at TE28 in FFPC best balls.

The Bills signed TE Jacob Hollister to a 1-year deal, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Hollister is reuniting with QB Josh Allen, who he played with at Wyoming in 2016, posting a 32-515-7 line. More recently, Hollister emerged as a reliable option for Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, compiling 66 catches for 558 yards and 6 scores over the past 2 seasons. Buffalo has seemingly been disappointed with TE Dawson Knox, so there's a chance Hollister overtakes him as the lead TE.

The Seahawks have activated TE Greg Olsen from IR. He missed the past 4 games after rupturing the plantar fascia in his left foot. Olsen returns to an offense that has been running a TE committee both with and without him. It’s not an attractive fantasy situation, especially for a matchup with 1 of the league’s top defenses

ESPN's Brady Henderson reports that Seahawks HC Pete Carroll says TE Greg Olsen is "challenging" to practice this week. Carroll says that Olsen "has a chance to get back very soon, maybe this week or next week." Olsen has been out since tearing the plantar fascia in his left foot in Week 11. It's getting a bit late for Olsen to be a fantasy factor this season. His return (or non-return) will impact the outlooks of Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister, though. None of the 3, of course, has been much of a fantasy factor all year.

Seahawks TE Greg Olsen ruptured the plantar fascia in his left foot in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Olsen is expected to miss about 2 months. That means he's done for at least the regular season and can be dropped from all fantasy rosters. Olsen's absence leaves Seattle with TEs Jacob Hollister and Will Dissly. Hollister out-targeted Dissly 3 to 1 on Thursday night and 16 to 9 over the last 5 games. Neither guy figures to emerge as a reliable fantasy play.

Seahawks TE Greg Olsen left early the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Cardinals after suffering an apparent left ankle injury. It was a non-contact injury that left Olsen not able to put any weight on it, a worrisome situation. We'll watch for updates on his status. His absence would obviously help TEs Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister.

The Seahawks have tendered TE Jacob Hollister at the 2nd-round level, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That means he could sign with another team as a restricted free agent, but that team would owe Seattle a 2nd-round pick. Thus, Hollister looks likely to return to a Seattle squad that expects to return TE Will Dissly from injury and added Greg Olsen this offseason. We'll see if that whole trio makes the regular-season roster. It's too crowded a situation to make any attractive for best-ball fantasy football drafts.
