Hollister hauled in two of three targets for 14 yards Thursday in the Seahawks' 28-21 win over the Cardinals.
Hollister only played 13 offensive snaps in the contest, but he made the most of his limited reps. Perhaps more significant than Hollister's performance itself was the fact that head coach Pete Carroll revealed after the game that top tight end Greg Olsen suffered what the team fears is a ruptured fascia in his left foot, according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. While the Seahawks aren't putting a timeline on Olsen's return, he seems likely to miss multiple weeks -- if not months -- with the injury, which should open the door for Will Dissly and Hollister to both see increased work.
Hollister caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams.
Hollister led all Seahawks tight ends with a 48 percent snap share and 60 receiving yards in last week's loss to Buffalo, but he was left out of the game plan against the Rams, logging just six snaps on offense. He's a crafty tight end that has promise as a pass catcher, but he'll be tough to depend for consistent usage behind Greg Olsen and Will Dissly.
Hollister caught five of seven targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 44-34 loss to the Bills.
For the first time this season, Hollister led Seattle's tight ends in snap share (48 percent) and targets, recording more than Greg Olsen and Will Dissly combined in the latter category. Three of those targets were in the red zone too, although he failed to find the end zone. Neither Olsen nor Dissly has been good enough to dismiss challengers for the top spot this year, so Hollister could realistically maintain an increased workload moving forward. It's worth keeping an eye on his usage in Week 10 against the Rams.
Hollister caught his lone target for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Cowboys.
Hollister reeled in a designed pass play from Russell Wilson at the goal line to account for his first touchdown of the season. The 26-year-old tight end still has minimal fantasy utility behind Greg Olsen and Will Dissly, as Hollister hasn't played more than 18 percent of the offensive snaps in a game this season.
Hollister caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 38-25 win over the Falcons.
Hollister predictably played a minimal role Sunday with Greg Olsen on board and Will Dissly recovered from an Achilles injury. He logged just 11 of 62 offensive snaps (18 percent), while Olsen played 41 snaps and Dissly played 25. The Seahawks often used two-tight-end sets, but Hollister's the odd man out among the bunch.
Hollister has signed his tender with the Seahawks, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
The Seahawks originally placed a second-round tender on Hollister, so it's not much of a surprise that no other team was willing to meet that price. Seattle traded for the 26-year-old tight end last season, sending a seventh-round pick to the Patriots. He ultimately was elevated to the 53-man roster prior to Week 6 and ended the year with 41 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns across 11 games. It may be harder to see playing time this season, as he will compete for snaps with the newly acquired Greg Olsen and the returning Will Dissly (Achilles).
The Seahawks have placed a second-round tender on Hollister, a restricted free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Seattle obtained Hollister last offseason from New England for a seventh-round pick, so the former is getting significant return on its investment. He fared well once he elevated to the 53-man roster prior to Week 6 last season and ended up with 41 receptions (on 59 targets) for 349 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. Assuming he sticks with the Seahawks, Hollister will have additional competition at tight end in the form of free-agent addition Greg Olsen while the unit waits out the recovery of Will Dissly (Achilles).
The Seahawks remain interested in bringing Hollister back for the 2020 season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
The Seahawks can give Hollister a restricted free agent tender this offseason, which could deter other teams from kicking the tires on the tight end. Given that Hollister entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017, an original-round tender wouldn't require any interested club to send draft pick compensation in order to sign him to an offer sheet, but it would allow the Seahawks to retain the right to match any contract. Of course, a first- or second-round tender would effectively guarantee that Hollister remains in Seattle. The 26-year-old impressed during the final 10 games of the 2019 regular season, catching 41 passes for 349 yards and three touchdowns. He'll likely be relegated to a depth role behind Greg Olsen and Will Dissly (Achilles) in 2020, however.
Hollister may still fit in the Seahawks' plans, despite the team's recent signing of Greg Olsen, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Traded from New England to Seattle last spring, Hollister opened the 2019 campaign on the practice squad and eventually stepped in as the No. 1 tight end after Will Dissly tore his Achilles' tendon in October. Hollister caught 41 passes over the final 10 games of the regular season, but he averaged just 8.5 yards per catch and 5.9 per target, with a long gain of 22 yards. Olsen should now step in as Russell Wilson's favorite tight end, while Hollister likely will occupy a depth role if the Seahawks keep him around. The 26-year-old becomes a restricted free agent in March.
Hollister caught five of six targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 28-23 loss to Green Bay in the divisional round.
Hollister filled in capably after the rest of Seattle's tight end depth chart was decimated by injuries, totaling 41 catches for 349 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season before adding seven catches for 63 yards in two playoff games. The 26-year-old tight end will likely earn a modest raise in restricted free agency after making less than $1 million this past season.
Hollister caught two of four targets for 16 yards in Sunday's wild-card win over the Eagles.
Hollister produced his lowest yardage total since Week 6 -- his debut with the Seahawks -- despite Russell Wilson racking up 325 passing yards. The Seahawks will travel to Green Bay for the divisional round. The Packers allowed, on average, 4.8 receptions, 54 receiving yards per game and six total touchdowns to tight ends during the regular season.
Hollister caught four of eight targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the 49ers.
Hollister was second on the team in targets behind DK Metcalf (12), but it's the play he couldn't make that will be remembered from this contest. With the Seahawks down to their last snap and needing a touchdown to win not only the game but the NFC West title, Russell Wilson fired a pass to Hollister just short of the goal line, and he was unable to gain the missing inches as he was brought down. The tight end has now gone six straight games without a touchdown, averaging four catches for 35.3 receiving yards per game in that span. Seattle travels to Philadelphia for a wild-card clash Sunday, and Hollister will likely remain a secondary option for Wilson in the passing attack.
Hollister caught five of six targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals.
Hollister led the team in receiving yards, making his career best in the process. Even with Luke Willson back from a hamstring injury, Hollister outsnapped him 43-22. The big-play ability hasn't been evident for Hollister, but he has intriguing touchdown-dependant upside going forward.
Hollister hauled in all three of his targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers.
After recording 12 receptions and three touchdowns between Weeks 9 and 10, Hollister has regressed, failing to exceed six catches or 44 yards in a game while staying out of the end zone in four straight games. The 26-year-old is a touchdown-dependant fantasy asset, but he's a solid option in Week 16 against the Cardinals, who allowed two scores to tight ends in Sunday's win over the Browns.
Hollister caught four of six targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Rams.
Hollister likely wishes he had his first target back, as he dropped a pass on third down while the Seahawks were down 14-3. The Seahawks were forced to punt, and the Rams scored another touchdown on the next drive. Overall, it was another encouraging outing for Hollister, though, as he tied with DK Metcalf for the team lead in targets while playing 53 of a possible 67 offensive snaps. Hollister and the Seahawks will travel to Carolina in Week 15.
Hollister (quadriceps) was a full participant at Thursday's walk-through, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
The Seahawks have held back-to-back walk-throughs to kick off Week 14 preparations, but Hollister's elevation from LP on Wednesday to uncapped one day later paves the way for the tight end to suit up Sunday versus the Rams in L.A. He's been the most-utilized TE for Russell Wilson for some time now, notching 25 catches (on 36 targets) for 203 yards and three touchdowns over Seattle's last six games.
Hollister was a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through session due to a quadriceps injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hollister has become a regular option for Russell Wilson over the last six games, earning between 51 and 81 percent of the offensive snaps on five occasions en route to turning in a 25-203-3 receiving line on 36 targets. The increased usage seems to be taking its toll, though, as Hollister dealt with a toe injury last week and now is tending to a quad issue. As a result, his status should be monitored closely as the weekend approaches.
Hollister caught six of eight targets for 44 yards in Monday's 37-30 win over the Vikings.
Hollister logged a season-high 81-percent snap share, with Luke Willson's (hamstring) inactive status helping his case. The third-year pro finished tied with DK Metcalf for the team lead in receptions. Over the last four weeks, Hollister has averaged five catches for 41.3 yards while totaling three touchdowns.
Hollister (toe) does not carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the Vikings, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
While Luke Willson is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, it's Hollister who appears fully healthy heading into a pivotal prime-time affair against the Vikings. The 26-year-old, along with the rest of the Seahawks' receiving options, was kept in check in Week 12, but prior to that Hollister recorded 17 receptions, 137 receiving yards and three touchdowns over a four-week stretch during the middle of the season.
Hollister (toe) was listed as a limited participant in Friday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hollister is apparently still experiencing some discomfort in his toe dating back to the Seahawks' Week 12 win over the Eagles, but the tight end would erase most of the concern about his health by practicing fully Saturday. Even if Hollister merely repeats the limited activity, he would still have a decent shot at suiting up Monday night against the Vikings.
