Vannett caught one of two targets for 17 yards in Thursday's 27-24 win over the Packers.
Vannett's one reception landed him a yard short of the goal line and running back Chris Carson punched it in on the next play. This is the third time in four games Vannett has just one catch, so he's considered a flaky fantasy option.
Vannett caught an 8-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's 36-31 loss to the Rams.
A week after leading the team with eight targets, Vannett was targeted just twice. The third-year pro does have a score in two straight games, but he's still not dependable. The Seahawks' next game is Thursday against the Packers, who haven't allowed a tight end to score against them this year.
Vannett caught six of eight targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-17 loss to the Chargers.
Vannett's eight targets tied with running back Mike Davis for the most on the team. Prior to this matchup, Vannett averaged just 3.5 targets per game and didn't have a touchdown this season, so this is certainly an anomaly. Next comes a matchup with the Rams, who have allowed just two touchdowns to tight ends through nine games.
Vannett hasn't been an intriguing fantasy option this year with just 12 catches on 18 targets in five games, and it won't get any easier with Ed Dickson (quadriceps) returning from the reserve/Non-Football Injury list. It's unclear if Dickson will be given a full workload right away. Still, Vannett's fantasy value should be discounted appropriately since Dickson's resume is easily the better of the two.
