The Seahawks signed TE Gerald Everett to a 1-year, $6 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a "prove-it" deal for a guy who underwhelmed across 4 seasons with the Rams. There might still be untapped upside here, though, for the 26-year-old who was the 44th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Everett averaged 14.8 yards per catch across 3 college seasons and tested as an 85th percentile athlete. He's getting a big QB upgrade in Seattle -- but the 'Hawks seemingly want to rein in the passing game, while TE Will Dissly also figures to remain involved. That keeps Everett stuck in TE2 territory for now.
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.
Seahawks TE Will Dissly will undergo surgery to repair his torn Achilles on Thursday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dissly is done for 2019 but "should be good to go for 2020," per Rapoport. Returning from an Achilles injury is a tough task -- but Dissly came back this year from a torn patellar tendon, an even tougher injury. We'll track his progress this offseason.
Seahawks TE Will Dissly injured his left leg in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Cleveland and had to be helped off the field by a couple of trainers. Dissly missed most of last season with a right knee injury. We'll update his status when we learn more.
Update: The injury is to Dissly's Achilles and he's been ruled out for the game. This is likely a season-ender.
The Seahawks have traded TE Nick Vannett to the Steelers. This would seem to hint at real concern over TE Vance McDonald's shoulder injury, although NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears McDonald "won't have an extended absence." We'll monitor the situation, but Vannett isn't worth adding to fantasy rosters right now. The bigger impact comes in Seattle, where TE Will Dissly should see a boost in playing time. Vannett had played 39% of Seattle's offensive snaps and run a route on 42% of Russell Wilson's drop backs through 3 weeks. Corresponding numbers for Dissly: 55% and 47%. Both numbers should climb significantly going forward. Dissly has worked his way into the TE1 discussion.
Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday. So it looks like he's fine after exiting in the 2nd half of the opener. Dissly remains just a fantasy flier.
Seahawks TE Will Dissly injured his right knee in the 2nd half of Sunday's opener against the Bengals. That's the same knee in which Dissly tore the patellar tendon last September. It's unclear if this is related, but we should learn more over the next 24 hours.
Seahawks TE Will Dissly took part in team drills on Saturday for the 1st time since tearing his patellar tendon last September. It looks like he's on track to be ready for the 2019 opener, barring a setback. Dissly exploded for a 3-105-1 line in his NFL debut last year and then hit pay dirt again in Week 2. Seattle didn't make any noteworthy additions at TE this offseason, so the former 4th-rounder has every chance to emerge as the team's primary pass-catching TE. He's an interesting late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
Seahawks TE Will Dissly tore his patellar tendon in Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is done for the year, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dissly flashed some surprising big-play ability in his abbreviated rookie season and is worth stashing in dynasty leagues. His absence leaves Nick Vannett as Seattle's top TE.
Seahawks TE Will Dissly was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a knee injury. That leaves Nick Vannett as Seattle's top TE. We'll look for an update on Dissly's situation.
