TE Will Dissly - Seattle Seahawks
|6-4, 262||Born: 7-8-1996||College: Washington||Drafted: Round 4, pick 2018|
Week 14: at Los Angeles Rams
FBG says: Bad matchup. Although Seattle's offense ranks in the bottom quarter of the NFL in passing volume, Russell Wilson's incredible 2019 season has the team ranked firmly in the top-10 of almost every relevant passing statistic. The Seahawks rank 10th in the NFL in passing yards, tied for 1st in passing touchdowns, and 5th in net yards per attempt so far this season. Through the air, Wilson has favored Tyler Lockett as his number-one target. However, in recent weeks, a leg injury along with the flu have limited Lockett's impact on the game, as he averages just three targets per game over the last month. D.K. Metcalf has picked up some of the slack, as the rookie receiver has led the team's receiving corps in targets in every game since Lockett was initially hampered by the leg injury against the San Francisco 49ers. Josh Gordon has yet to make much of an impact in the team's offense, aside from two timely catches, and there is no sign of that changing anytime soon. The Los Angeles Rams field one of the NFL's most talented pass defenses at all three levels this season. The Rams have defended above-average volume through the air, and aside from two outlier performances, they have done a great job at limiting opposing passing attacks. On a per-play basis, the Rams rank 6th in the NFL, allowing just 5.7 net yards per attempt this season, thanks to their supremely talented unit of pass defenders. Along the defensive line, Aaron Donald headlines one of the league's most-feared pass-rushes. Aaron Donald, Clay Matthews, and Dante Fowler, Jr. have combined for 25 sacks this season, in large part thanks to Donald's uncanny ability to command and beat double teams. At linebacker, Cory Littleton is one of the best pass-defending linebackers in the NFL. Littleton is tied for the team-lead in interceptions this season, with two to his name, and his athleticism at the second-level is nearly-unmatched by any other linebacker in the league. In the secondary, an in-season move to acquire Jalen Ramsey bolstered an already impressive defensive backfield. Ramsey's performance in a Rams' jersey has been just slightly-above-average through six games, but he should return to his All-Pro levels in the near future. Ramsey is supported by established veterans in Nickell Robey-Coleman and Eric Weddle in the secondary, helping to compensate for Ramsey's comparatively disappointing production. Lastly, Taylor Rapp, a wildly impressive rookie that recorded his first career interception last weekend, rounds out one of the league's best pass defenses at the safety position. In all, Los Angeles' pass defense is one of the league's strongest, and they should give Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks' passing attack as much trouble as any defense has this season.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 6 vs CLE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Dissly went down fairly early, with a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon, and did not return to the game.
2019 Week 5 vs LAR (4 / 4 / 81 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Over the first four games of the season, Dissly has quickly become an integral part of the passing game, and this game was no different. Most of his catches were of the shorter variety, but he also got wide open on a flag pattern in the first quarter, for a 38-yard gain, which set up a TD on the very next play. Later in the half, he made a skillful over the shoulder catch in coverage, for a 20-yard gain. Although he missed out on scoring for what would have been a fourth game in a row, Dissly did catch all four of his targets.
2019 Week 4 vs ARI (8 / 7 / 57 / 1 rec)
Dissly has become a permanent fixture in Wilson's multi-faceted arsenal. Against the Cardinals, he took the top spot with 7 catches, including a TD. He was used mainly on short patterns, but he and Wilson like to team up on a seam pattern, which usually sees Dissly open and getting the ball near or at the goal line, which is exactly how this one went down.
2019 Week 3 vs NO (7 / 6 / 62 / 1 rec)
Dissly was not exactly the difference maker he was one week ago, but he still looked impressive. He showed excellent control running routes, and soft hands on more than one catch. His end of game TD was firmly a garbage time score, but also was a good catch in a lot of coverage.
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.
