Will Dissly Fantasy Outlook Suggests He's Now an Every-Week TE1

Will Dissly was one of the hottest names on the waiver wire this time last year, but a torn patellar tendon ended his season midway through his fourth game. He was essentially an afterthought this offseason, but he's been really effective since returning in Week 1.

He quickly continued his hot start this week, racking up five catches for 50 yards and a TD in the first half.

As long as he's on the field, Dissly has likely established himself as an every-week TE1 going forward. In fact, Dissly entered Week 4 with 30.4 fantasy points, which was good for the fifth-best total at the position. Prior to this game, Dissly already led all tight ends with three touchdowns, and he added to that lead today.

While he's not in the elite tier of tight ends, he absolutely has a shot to finish in the top five at the position, especially given the slow starts for players like Eric Ebron, Jared Cook and O.J. Howard.

Fantasy owners should feel confident putting Dissly in their starting lineups week in and week out for the rest of the season.
