2020 Fantasy Outlook
Dissly is right in the running for worst injury luck in the NFL. In 2018, he came in as a fourth-round pick and put up 151 yards and two TDs over his first three games before suffering a torn patellar tendon Week 4. It's one of the worst injuries a football player can have, yet Dissly made it back for Week 1 last season and immediately reclaimed the starting job. Sitting on 262 yards and four TDs through five games, he had worked his way into a three-down role and earned Russell Wilson's trust in the red zone (five targets). Then Week 6 brought a torn Achilles. While the Seahawks claim they're optimistic the 24-year-old will be ready for Week 1, their offseason moves - signing Greg Olsen, drafting Colby Parkinson in the fourth round, giving Jacob Hollister a second-round RFA tender - hint at some level of doubt. The Olsen signing, in particular, appears problematic for Dissly's short-term workload. Read Past Outlooks

Achilles
August 3, 2020
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Monday that Dissly (Achilles) passed his physical, but the tight end is still expected to be eased along carefully during training camp, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Though Carroll has been encouraged by how Dissly has fared in his recovery from the torn Achilles' tendon he suffered nine months earlier, the Seahawks aren't inclined to rush the 24-year-old while he returns from his second major lower-body injury in as many years. Perhaps due to a lack of confidence in how Dissly's comeback effort might play out, the Seahawks pumped significant resources into their tight-end room this offseason by signing veteran Greg Olsen, re-signing Cody Hollister and Luke Willson, and spending a fourth-round pick on Colby Parkinson. Even if Dissly gains clearance for Week 1, he's probably looking at a timeshare at the position with Olsen in a best-case scenario.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
A fourth-round pick last year, Dissly quickly emerged as the cream of the crop in Seattle's timeshare at TE, ripping off gains of 66, 34 and 24 yards before a patella tear Week 4 brought his rookie season to a halt. It's a tricky injury for any player to bounce back from, but the young tight end at least has age (23) and the timing of the injury (Sept. 30) working in his favor. While he didn't practice at OTAs or minicamp, 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 questions 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.
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.
