2018 Fantasy Outlook
A third-round pick in 2016, Vannett hasn't had much opportunity to do anything with the Seahawks, playing behind Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson the last two years. Graham and Willson are gone, leaving Vannett in spot where he can actually contribute this season. Seattle signed veteran Ed Dickson and drafted Will Dissly in the fourth round, but both of those tight ends are blockers first. At 6-5, 261, Vannett is the biggest of the trio. The Seahawks likely won't pass as much at the goal line this season, but when they do, Vannett could get his number called. Read Past Outlooks

Vannett (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
ANALYSIS
Vannett's presence on the inactive list comes as a surprise after coach Pete Carroll said just two days earlier that the third-year player would be available for the London game. With Vannett sidelined for at least this week and Will Dissly (knee) on injured reserve, the Seahawks are suddenly thin at tight end. Darell Daniels and Tyrone Swoopes -- both of whom were members of Seattle's practice squad less than two weeks ago -- will represent the team's only options at the position in Week 6.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Vannett is expected to be the third tight end again this season. That doesn't mean much, though, with Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson around. Vannett caught three passes in nine games last season. Expect more of the same this season.
The Seahawks selected Vannett in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft with the hope that he'll provide additional run-blocking support, so he likely won't be used much in the passing game, thus limiting his fantasy value. Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson are the clear top-2 pass-catching options at tight end, but Vannett could boost the production of running back Thomas Rawls with his blocking power.
