From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Dissly had a couple of scores and came up big vs. the Steelers. He's still not a truly dependable fantasy option, but could be good for spot starts where the Seahawks will have to throw more.

Week 3: vs New Orleans Saints

All TE vs NO

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Week two for Seattle's passing attack was much more along the lines of what was expected from the unit entering the season. Following a disappointing one-catch performance in the opener, Tyler Lockett caught 10 of his 12 targets in week two for 79 yards. D.K. Metcalf has also been impressive in his first two games in the NFL, compiling at least 61 yards in each outing with 1 touchdown to add to that. Metcalf's role in the offense is clear: stretch the field as a physical specimen that thrives one-on-one against inferior athletes. Metcalf has excelled in this role thus far, and his involvement has been consistent with 6 and 7 targets in each of the first 2 games, respectively. Aside from the team's top two wide receivers, Seattle's offense is making a conscious effort to involve running backs in the passing attack more often in 2019. Russell Wilson has targeted running backs seven times in each of the first two games, a significant uptick from last year's mark of just under five targets-per-game for the position. Chris Carson has proven a capable pass-catcher when on the field, and he provides Wilson with a safety-valve that has lacked in this offense over previous years. In the trenches, the Seahawks offensive line is cause for concern once again in 2019. While the unit looks much stronger on paper than it has in previous years, the performance through two games is amongst the league's worst. Russell Wilson's other-worldly ability to extend plays has masked some of these struggles. However, if the offensive line continues to falter, it may only be a matter of time before the struggles show up in Wilson's passing numbers. The New Orleans Saints opened the 2019 season with arguably the most-difficult schedule for any pass defense in the NFL. In week one, the Saints consistently pressured Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson, yet he still managed to make plays and salvage an impressive 268-yard and 3-touchdown performance on Monday night. In week two, Jared Goff finished with a far-less robust stat line, but an efficient 283-yard, 1-score performance on just 28 pass attempts. These big passing days against New Orleans are not yet cause for concern, as these two offenses are expected to rank amongst the league-leaders in passing in 2019. One major bright spot on the New Orleans defense has been the pass rush. The New Orleans Saints have pressured opposing quarterbacks an astonishing 54 times through 2 games, the second-highest total in the NFL. New Orleans has a rare combination of depth and skill on the defensive line, with 4 different players (including 1 nominal backup) registering at least 5 hurries through the seasons first 2 games. Disrupting the pocket is paramount to stifling an opposing passing attack, and New Orleans has proven they excel here in the opening stages of the 2019 season. In the secondary, New Orleans also fields a wildly-talented set of defensive backs. Marshon Lattimore has solidified his ranking as one of the league's best cornerbacks over his first two seasons in the NFL. The first two games of the 2019 season, however, have not been Lattimore's best. In a week one clash with DeAndre Hopkins, Lattimore justifiably struggled to contain one of the league's best wide receivers. In week two, Lattimore once again struggled against the Rams, one of the NFL's most creative and impressive passing attacks. Lattimore's track record as a reliable NFL cornerback trumps the two data points from the 2019 NFL season, but should the struggles continue in the coming weeks; it may be time for re-evaluation. In total, the New Orleans Saints field an impressive group of pass-rushers backed by an underperforming secondary. The struggles in the secondary are likely a byproduct of a challenging schedule to open the season. The scores and baseline statistics are misleading in this case after just two games in 2019, and the Saints still rank amongst the league's better pass defenses.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs PIT (5 / 5 / 50 / 2 rec)

Dissly's had a great game on paper, but it was even better to witness. Before the two scores, he got open downfield for a 43-yard catch and run, but it was negated by a holding call. Then, he made an excellent high catch in the end zone on a well-timed throw. The second score was essentially the same play, as he cruised off the line untouched and Russell Wilson timed it perfectly for him to catch it and walk in. Dissly also snagged a first down catch late in the game, and was used heavily in crunch time, moving the chains and reminding us how very hard he is to take down. Move him up your charts, folks, he looks like the real deal.

2019 Week 1 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Dissly looked good on his one reception, a nice seam catch for first down. But neither tight end was targeted enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

Seahawks | Will Dissly good to go for Week 2 (Wed Sep 11, 03:57 PM) - Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) is good to go for Week 2, according to head coach Pete Carroll Wednesday, Sept 11.

Our View: On Monday, Carroll revealed that Dissly had suffered a setback from the knee injury that cost him most of 2018. On Wednesday, Dissly is good to go. Alright, that's good news but Fantasy GMs have plenty of other options besides Dissly in Week 2.

Seahawks | Another knee injury for Will Dissly (Mon Sep 9, 02:05 PM) - Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) reportedly suffered a setback with his surgically repaired knee in Week 1, according to comments made by head coach Pete Carroll.

Our View: Not good news for the second-year pro. His rookie season was cut short after just four games due to this knee injury. It sounds like he may have to miss more time. Stay tuned.
