Start Seahawks tight end Will Dissly with confidence in fantasy football this week.
Tight end is an incredibly difficult position to fill in fantasy football. Whether you spent big on Travis Kelce or are streaming the position each and every week, consistent production at the tight end position is incredibly difficult to come by. That being said, this week, Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly is a rock-solid play with obvious fantasy football upside.
Dissly has really come on as of late, catching 11 passes for 112 yards and three touchdowns in the Seahawks last two games combined. He has become a reliable target for quarterback Russell Wilson in the middle of the field and a real playmaker for the Seahawks in the red zone.
He is has become the clear number one tight end in the offense and has become an obvious starting tight end option in fantasy football. Dissly is a smooth receiver who has shown the ability to get open and consistently catches the ball when it is thrown to him.
This week, the Seahawks travel South to take on the Arizona Cardinals. Not only have the Cardinals allowed the most points to the tight end position this season in the entire NFL (21.6 allowed per game), they have allowed the top-scoring player at the position for the first three weeks of the season.
In Week 1, the Cardinals allowed 19.1 fantasy points to Detroit Lions rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson. In Week 2, they gave up 17.2 points to Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews. Last week against the Carolina Panthers, Greg Olsen went off for 19.5. Each of those players was the top-scoring tight ends for the week that they faced the Cardinals. Obviously, Arizona has some issues defending tight ends.
Now, I am not saying that Dissly will be the top-scoring tight end in Week 4, but based on his recent opportunity, obvious rapport with Wilson and this tasty matchup, the sky is the limit here. Do not hesitate, Will Dissly is a must-start in fantasy football this week.
