What to do with the Seahawks TEs in Week 10 fantasy football

We go over Greg Olsen, Jacob Hollister, Will Dissly’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Seahawks Week 10 matchup against the Rams.

None of them are sexy fantasy starts, but the fact is one of the Seattle Seahawks’ three tight ends will probably come out of Week 10 with a useful box score. But which one? That’s a conundrum.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks TEs Greg Olsen, Jacob Hollister, Will Dissly

Hollister finished four games with double-digit fantasy points last year, but he accomplished that for the first time in 2020 just a few days ago. He caught five of seven targets for 60 yards versus the Bills. Before then, Hollister had caught just eight passes all year. Further encouraging is that Hollister’s snap count has increased three weeks in a row, up to a position-leading 31 snaps (48 percent) this past week. He played five more snaps than Olsen and 10 more than Dissly.

The 35-year-old Olsen has seen a handful of targets in recent games, but he has totaled just five catches for 51 yards in his last four weeks. Dissly’s production has been even more scant recently; he has been targeted exactly once in three of Seattle’s last four games.

The Rams haven’t clamped down on tight ends as well as they have wide receivers; Los Angeles is allowing about 14 fantasy points per game to the position, which is 15th-most in the league. George Kittle’s 7-109-1 line earlier this year blew that average up, but if Tyler Kroft can score twice against this defense (and he did in Week 3), someone in this trio can, too.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

But if you aim to guess who that someone will be, good luck. Hollister is probably the favorite of the three, due in part to some recency bias, but all three are playing significant amounts of snaps right now. Even at such a putrid position, you can find safer TE bets on your waiver wire. Hollister is listed at $2,600 while Olsen and Dissly cost the basement price of $2,500.
