The Seahawks looked better in the fourth quarter in week 5 against the Rams than they did the rest of the game. Here are 3 Seahawks with soaring stock entering week 6 based on their most recent performance.
Why “recent performance”? Because this Seattle offense you will see versus the Steelers on Sunday is completely different from any other Seattle offense you have seen for the last decade. Sounds insane.
But Russell Wilson is out for several weeks with a finger injury. He hasn’t missed a game since he was drafted in 2012. Running back Chris Carson is out too with a neck injury. In steps Geno Smith (more on him in a bit) and Alex Collins. Collins has been good in short time this year. He needs to be great in week 6.
3 Seahawks who will be studs in week 6 versus Steelers
Dissly was ill-used in 2020 after being really good in very limited time in 2018 and 2019. He got hurt and injuries cut short his production in his first two seasons. Russell Wilson seemed to target him well enough in ’18 and ’19 but last year – the first full season Dissly played in the NFL – not nearly as much. Was the issue the offensive scheme? Or Wilson?
Based on what we saw in the fourth quarter of week 5 when Dissly caught two passes from Geno Smith after Smith replaced Wilson due to Wilson’s finger injury, the problem was Wilson.
I think Dissly has a huge week versus the Steelers with a bunch of targets. Actually, Dissly might get close to the number of targets he has combined so far this year (10) in week 6 alone. And why not? Dissly has a career catch rate of 78.8 percent and has caught 8 of 10 targets this year. Dissly caught both of his targets in week 5 from Geno Smith. Dissly is going to have a big game versus Pittsburgh.
