The Seattle Seahawks placed rookie tight end Will Dissly (knee) and free safety Earl Thomas (leg) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday. Both Dissly and Thomas will miss the rest of the season. Dissly tore his patellar tendon, which is a tough injury to come back from. He won't be guaranteed to be ready for the start of next season. Thomas broke his tibia and won't be back with the Seahawks in 2019 after a dispute with the team about a contract extension. Seattle's secondary is much weaker without the veteran in the picture. Nick Vannett is now the team's only tight end on the roster, but he's not much of a fantasy weapon.
Seattle Seahawks rookie tight end Will Dissly suffered a patellar injury on Sunday that will sideline him for an extensive amount of time. Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that Dissly's injury is a major blow that will cause the team to be promoting someone from the practice squad, so the belief is that Dissly will be lost for the year. Dissly had been a surprise for the Seahawks as he was proving to be a better receiver than expected, but that's now cut short. Fantasy owners should feel free to move on. Ed Dickson is set to be activated in a couple weeks, and he could possibly be a target when the time comes.
Seattle Seahawks rookie tight end Will Dissly continued to show that he's more than just a blocker by hauling in another touchdown in Week 2. Dissly's score came in the final seconds of the game as Seattle attempted to make a desperate, but ultimately futile, comeback. Dissly snatched three more passes in Monday's game, giving him six receptions and 147 yards on the season so far. While Dissly wasn't expected to be a receiving tight end and the jury's still out on whether this is a run or the new normal, there's no denying that Seattle's offense is sputtering and could use all the help they can get. Dissly may turn into a real stud with this opportunity.
