The Seahawks are looking to get back on track in Week 8 against division rival, the San Francisco 49ers. Greg Olsen and Will Dissly have been a contributors all season, but neither has managed to carve out a significant role in this high octane offense thus far. Will things change in Week 8 or will they each siphon each other’s fantasy value to the point of irrelevance? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks TEs Greg Olsen, Will Dissly

Greg Olsen is the 27th ranked fantasy tight end averaging 6.5 points per game. He has a season high single game yardage of 61 yards and has only found the end zone once. He averages only 3.7 targets per game. The 49ers have been particularly tough against tight ends this year and have only given up one touchdown to the position in six games. Given the tough match-up and low usage, Olsen can be left on benches this weekend.

Will Dissly is averaging 4.2 points per game and is the 42nd ranked fantasy tight end. His outlook is similar to Greg Olsen’s this weekend and neither of their outlooks looks promising. The targets are all going to the wide receivers in Seattle leaving little room for success at the tight end position. Given the tough matchup mentioned above, Will Dissly can stay on the bench in Week 8.
