3. Browns fans will learn the name Will Dissly
Seattle hasn’t had a good receiving threat at tight end since they traded Jimmy Graham to the Green Bay Packers. But they appear to have found that now in Will Dissly.
He has been a pleasant surprise for the Seahawks and really the entire league, he has been one of my favorite players to watch so far this season.
He did catch two touchdown passes in 2018 but has really started to burst onto the scene this season. He is second on his team in targets with 26 and he has caught 23 of them, that’s an 88 percent catch percentage. He averages 11 yards per catch and already has four touchdowns, tied for third in the NFL.
He’s on the field for a lot of plays because he can cap off the end of the line on a run play, he is a very capable blocker.
Cleveland’s linebackers and safeties have had a hard time covering tight ends as well. They allowed six catches for 55 yards and two touchdowns to Delanie Walker in week one. They also gave up a touchdown to Mark Andrews and six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown to George Kittle of the 49ers last week.
Dissly is not quite at the level of those three players but he is well on his way. Russell Wilson also knows how to find his tight end of the middle of the field.
He will make several plays in this game that makes fans ask “who is this guy” with a puzzled look on their face. But soon the entire NFL will know about Will Dissly.
