Los Angeles Chargers
2024 Fantasy Outlook
With the Chargers pushed up against the cap this offseason, much of the Jim Harbaugh era began with cuts or contract restructures, but the team was able to lure Dissly away from Seattle with a three-year, $14 million deal early in the free-agency period. Given that 6-8 behemoth Donald Parham remains on the roster and the Chargers also signed veteran option Hayden Hurst later in the offseason, Dissly - who has never recorded more than 350 receiving yards in his six NFL seasons - has competition for targets in his new locale. While he could be listed as a starter, the 28-year-old may end up making most of his mark as a blocker in a projected run-heavy offense. Read Past Outlooks

Dissly is slated to sign a three-year deal with the Chargers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Pelissero relays that Dissly's pending contract is for $14 million, including $10 million guaranteed. With Gerald Everett in line to become a free agent, Dissly will bolster the Chargers' tight end corps in 2024, while providing the team with a reliable run-blocking option at the position. During the 2023 regular season, the 27-year-old recorded 17 catches (on 22 targets) for 172 yards and a touchdown over 16 games with the Seahawks, who he joined as a fourth-round draft pick in 2018.

Dissly split tight-end reps with Noah Fant and Colby Parkinson last season but barely made a dent on the scoresheet with 34 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns through 15 games. He ended up missing the final three contests, including playoffs, with a knee injury that should be cleared up by training camp. As long as he's healthy, Dissly should handle plenty of snaps in 2023 because of his blocking acumen, but he's nothing more than a typical touchdown-dependent fantasy option.
The Seahawks signed Dissly to a three-year, $24 million deal after trading for tight end Noah Fant, causing some amount of confusion in the football world. Dissly is a skilled run blocker, though, and the Seahawks likely will try focusing on the ground game with Russell Wilson out of the picture. Dissly's in-line reps will give the Seahawks more flexibility to line up Fant around the formation, including the slot. But Dissly shouldn't be expected to have much of a fantasy impact, as he hasn't topped 262 receiving yards in any of his four seasons.
Dissly's first two seasons ended prematurely due to a torn patellar tendon and a torn Achilles. The 6-4, 265-pound tight end put up 31 receptions for 418 yards and six touchdowns over 10 games between 2018 and 2019. However, he couldn't sustain that level of production last year, finishing with a 24-251-2 line across 16 games. The underwhelming campaign was the result of multiple factors, including two recent and serious surgeries and the presence of fellow tight ends Greg Olsen and Jacob Hollister. Olsen and Hollister now are gone, but the Seahawks signed Gerald Everett in free agency. Dissly will have a consistent role on offense because of his run-blocking ability, but there's little fantasy value available for receivers not named DK Metcalf or Tyler Lockett. Plus, the upcoming positional battle with Everett adds uncertainty to the equation.
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.
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.

May earn larger role Week 16
TESeattle Seahawks
December 21, 2022
Dissly could be in line for more targets in Saturday's game against the Chiefs with multiple Seattle pass catchers at risk of missing the contest.
ANALYSIS
Fellow tight end Noah Fant may be trending downward for the Christmas Eve game after sitting out the first two practices of the week with a knee injury, potentially clearing the way for Dissly to pick up the start. Meanwhile, Tyler Lockett is already ruled out with a hand injury, so if Fant joins Lockett on the sideline, Dissly could assume some of the vacated targets. Dissluy already comes into the game with a career-high 33 receptions and 330 receiving yards on the season.
