WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Will Dissly | Seahawks TE

The Seahawks are re-signing Will Dissly, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Dissly is getting a three-year, $24-million deal, so it's another significant commitment in a tight end this offseason after acquiring former first-round pick Noah Fant in the Russell Wilson trade. The former fourth-round pick has been a key part of the offense for his blocking, and he has also proven to be a quality scoring threat (particularly early in his career). Unless they end up making a move for Deshaun Watson, we'd expect Seattle will be a very run-heavy offense that uses a lot of 12 personnel this season.

Pete Carroll says Will Dissly (knee) has had an "incredible" offseason.

Dissly passed his physical coming off a serious leg injury last season, and he looks like he'll be 100% ready to go for Week 1. Seattle has a very crowded tight end group that now includes veteran Greg Olsen, but Dissly has been a favorite target of Russell Wilson when he's been in the lineup over the past two seasons.

Will Dissly will have surgery on his Achilles tomorrow, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Seahawks hadn't come out and confirmed it was a torn Achilles, but this confirms that Dissly will miss the remainder of the season. This is Dissly's second consecutive year with an early season-ending injury to start his career, and it's really unfortunate for a player that's played so well when he's been on the field. Dissly should be ready to go for the start of next season, and he still has a very promising dynasty-league outlook.

Will Dissly has an Achilles injury and will not return to Sunday’s game.

Dissly is likely done for the year, which is a crushing blow for him and the Seahawks. The second-year tight end missed most of his rookie year with a leg injury, and he’s scored four times in five games before today. Veteran Luke Willson is next up at the position. Hopefully this injury isn't as bad as expected.

Will Dissly leaves game with apparent leg injury.

Dissly appeared to go down with a non-contract leg injury on a pass to the end zone. It appears to be his left leg, which could be good news after it was his right knee that he suffered a season-ending injury to last season; but he's still being helped off the field and does not appear able to put much pressure on his leg. We'll update you as more information becomes available, but it does not look like Dissly will be able to return to today's game.

Will Dissly (knee) says it's "absolutely" possible he plays in Week 1.

Dissly has participated in the start of Seahawks training camp on a limited basis, which is a great sign about ten months removed from last season's patellar tear. The second-year tight end has yet to participate in team drills, but it's still good to see he's making progress and feels confident in his chances to play in the season opener against the Bengals. It's not necessary for him to play in Week 1, but everyone would feel really good about his status if he's able to get out there for presason action.

Will Dissly (knee) is not expected to be ready until training camp.

This, according to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll at the coaches breakfast during the NFL Owners Meetings. Dissly is dealing with a serious patellar injury, so this isn't surprising. The Seahawks are undoubtedly going to take things slow with Dissly, as the second-year player as a long career ahead of him that the team is very excited about. The start of training camp might be as stretch, but hopefully Dissly is able to get out there sometime in early August.

Will Dissly is believed to have suffered a torn patella, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Dissly was injured in the first half today against the Cardinals and was carted off the field, and it looked to be a serious injury. Unfortunately, it is indeed a season-ender for the promising rookie tight end. Dissly's season ends with eight receptions for 156 yards and two touchdowns, including a 105-yard, one-touchdown performance in his first career game. Dissly has a bright future, and we wish him luck on his recovery. He is a strong hold in dynasty leagues.

Will Dissly suffers apparent knee injury against the Cardinals.

Dissly is being carted off, so this obviously isn't a good sign for the rookie tight end. Hopefully the injury isn't as bad as it looks, but we'll update you when more information becomes available.

Will Dissly catches one pass against the Cowboys.

Dissly gained four yards on his lone reception in Seattle's Week 3 victory. Hopefully you didn't chase the points from Dissly's excellent first two games of his career, but the rookie tight end should have many more good weeks moving forward in 2018 and beyond. He is a TE2 option for Week 4 against Arizona.

Will Dissly scores again in Week 2.

The rookie tight end has a couple of touchdowns in back-to-back games to start his NFL career, as he caught a short touchdown to put the Seahawks within one possession with under 20 seconds to go versus the Bears. Dissly also had another long gain in the game, gaining 34 yards (Seattle's longest play of the game). The rookie tight end is off to an excellent start to his career, but it's probably a risk to chase his past performance and expect him to keep it up next week against Dallas.

Will Dissly leads the Seahawks in Week 1 receiving.

This was quite the debut for the fourth-round rookie tight end, who caught three passes for 105 yards and a touchdown for Seattle. Dissly's score was on a 15-yard pass where he got wide open off a play-action fake. Then later, Dissly had a 66-yard catch-and-run that he nearly took all the way. Dissly split tight-end snaps with Nick Vannett, but Week 1 probably gave him a leg up moving forward. It's risky to trust him in fantasy lineups next week against the Bears, though.

The Seahawks have selected Washington tight end Will Dissly with the 120th pick (fourth round) in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Dissly stays right at home in Seattle and will join a Seahawks tight end group that lost Jimmy Graham in free agency. He’s definitely someone to keep an eye on in dynasty leagues, and it’s possible he makes an impact as a rookie if he gets a big enough role.
