What to do with Will Dissly in Week 6 fantasy football [UPDATE]

With how Russell Wilson is playing, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better TE option than Will Dissly so far this season. A road bout with the Browns should add fuel to the fire. We break down your fantasy football options.

Will Dissly injury update, Week 6

Dissly suffered an injury in the second quarter of the Seahawks Week 6 matchup with the Browns. He has been ruled out with an Achilles injury. He had not left the sideline yet, but the team did not waste any time ending his day. This is bad news for today and for potentially the rest of the year if it’s as serious as it sounds.

Sure, Will Dissly’s start to the 2019 season has been surprising. But if we knew Russell Wilson was going to be a legit MVP candidate, we probably would have thought about drafting Dissly a bit higher back in August. Right now, Wilson leads the NFL in QB rating at 126.3 and is third in QBR at 76.6. Wilson is also completing an INSANE 73.1% of his passes and is doing all of this with Tyler Lockett as his No. 1 WR and Dissly essentially the second option. It’s safe to say if Wilson keeps this up, Dissly should finish the season as a top 5 TE, which literally no one saw coming — if you did you’re a liar and a coward and I’ll fight you (just kidding, but not really).

Fantasy Football Analysis, Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly

So the Browns are bad again. Well, not bad like they normally are, but they aren’t good like everyone thought they'd be. Cleveland is on a short week after being shut down by the 49ers on Monday Night Football and head home to take on Wilson, Dissly and the Seahawks. I could go into fancy stats about how the Browns’ defense defends tight ends, but instead lets look at another trend. Cleveland’s offensive line is atrocious. The Seahawks’ pass rush hasn’t performed all too well, but could look like the Seattle D-Line’s of old this week. Because of this we can expect at least a few turnovers for the Seahawks, which will shorten the field a bit for Wilson and Dissly. This should help Dissly’s red zone targets and with how often he’s being looked at, a TD and 5-6 receptions is all we need. This is a pretty safe/easy start.
