Panthers | Ed Dickson gets first TD of 2017

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:22:06 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson scored his first touchdown of the season, while hauling in three of five targets for 33 yards in the team's Week 10 win Monday, Nov. 13, against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Since Greg Olsen went down with injury, Dickson has emerged into a decent tight end option for deeper formats. In fact, he's garnered five or more targets in five of the last six weeks, though he's only got one touchdown to show for it. As a result, he's not someone to lean on in standard leagues, though he's not a bad streaming option either in such scenarios.

Panthers | Ed Dickson blanked in Week 9

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:21:32 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson was targeted twice in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons, but he went without a reception.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson blew up for 175 yards in Week 5 in Detroit, but he has managed just 11 receptions for 78 yards on 20 targets over the past four games. That's more like what you can expect from Dickson, which is not much. Greg Olsen cannot return soon enough from a foot injury for Cam Newton and the Cats.

Panthers | Ed Dickson active for Week 8

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 09:34:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) is active for Week 8's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he has received a consistent number of targets while filling in for Greg Olsen (foot), fantasy owners should not expect Dickson to come close to replicating the five-catch, 175-yard performance he had in Week 5 versus the Detroit Lions. He should be viewed as a midrange TE2 in most fantasy formats.

Panthers | Ed Dickson likely to play

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 05:57:51 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) is expected to play in Week 8's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson was listed as questionable on the injury report even though he was a full participant in the team's final two practice sessions of the week. He should be considered a midrange TE2 in the majority of fantasy formats.

Panthers | Questionable tag for Ed Dickson

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 15:53:30 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, but is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson appears to have a good chance to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He has been targeted 13 times over the last two games but has only 54 yards over that span. Owners can be considered other options for their lineups.

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 10:11:46 -0700

Carolina Panthers C Ryan Kalil (neck), OT John Theus (concussion) and RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Panthers | Full practice for Ed Dickson

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 12:12:40 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson has been targeted 13 times over the last two weeks but has only 54 yards during that span. He has been involved in the passing game since taking over for Greg Olsen but has had only one big offensive game. Owners in most leagues likely have better options available and can avoid Dickson.

Panthers | Ed Dickson sits out practice Wednesday

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 10:27:36 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Tip: For now, consider him day-to-day. Dickson played all 72 snaps in Week 7, so it is unlikely this injury is all that serious. He's a middling TE2 at best in most leagues.

Panthers | Ed Dickson limited to 18 yards

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:52:49 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson posted three grabs for 18 yards on five targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: That's two below-average performances since his breakout 175-yard game at Detroit in Week 5. We told you that game was an anomaly, as Dickson remains more of a TE2 in most fantasy formats.

Panthers | Ed Dickson does little Thursday

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 21:53:48 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson had four receptions for 36 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 12. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a massive Week 5, Dickson looked much more like the player he'd been over the first seven years of his career. He could still have some appeal while Greg Olsen is out, but he's not someone you can reliably plug into your lineup on a weekly basis.

Panthers | Ed Dickson shines in Week 5

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 15:29:51 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson posted five receptions for a career-high 175 yards on five targets in the Week 5 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson hadn't done much since Greg Olsen went down with an injury, but he had a giant performance in this one. He'll be a popular pick off the waiver wire heading into Week 6, but he should still be treated more as a low-end TE2 heading into Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Panthers | Ed Dickson may be more involved

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 18:30:47 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he has told coaches that he wants TE Ed Dickson to be more involved in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson has taken over the starting tight end job with Greg Olsen sidelined but caught only one pass in Week 3. He could receive a few more targets during games but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Ed Dickson only targeted once

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:37:57 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson posted just one catch for eight yards on one target in Week 3 against the Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson's usage rate didn't increase at all with Greg Olsen (foot) sidelined, as most of the short-route work went to Christian McCaffrey. If you targeted Dickson for fantasy purposes you can quickly abandon that plan. The Panthers travel to meet the Patriots in Week 4.

Panthers | Ed Dickson totals 26 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:51:55 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson racked up two receptions for 26 yards on three targets in Week 2 against the visiting Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson was called upon to do more after starting TE Greg Olsen went down with what is believed to be a multi-week injury to his foot. Even as the top tight end in Carolina, Dickson is more of a low-end TE2 for fantasy purposes heading into Week 3 against the Saints.

Panthers | Greg Olsen, Ed Dickson sitting

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 12:01:13 -0700

Carolina Panthers TEs Greg Olsen (back) and Ed Dickson (undisclosed) are inactive against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 20. Olsen is recovering from back spasms.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson has little to no fantasy value as long as Olsen is healthy, which Olsen should be by Week 1. He was Cam Newton's favorite target last year, and he should still be one of the first tight ends drafted even with the return of Kelvin Benjamin.

Panthers | Ed Dickson finds end zone

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 15:57:25 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson posted a four-yard touchdown reception on his only target of the day in Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson hasn't been much of a fantasy option this season, but he could emerge as a useful option down the stretch if the team elects to rest Greg Olsen, who tweaked his knee in the shutout win. Watch Dickson in the final few weeks, especially if Carolina decides to rest some starters.

Panthers | Ed Dickson finds end zone

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 16:41:31 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson posted three receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the score, Dickson isn't a great FantasyScore option as long as Greg Olsen remains healthy. He isn't really worth using in standard fantasy leagues, either, unless Olsen is befallen by injury.

Panthers | Might keep four tight ends

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 20:38:33 -0700

The Carolina Panthers are deep at tight end, with starting TE Greg Olsen and reserve TEs Ed Dickson, Brandon D. Williams and Richie Brockel projected to make the final 53-man roster. In fact, if they keep four tight eneds, it would likely mean they keep eight offensive linemen instead of nine.

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson will make the veteran minimum of $730,000 as part of his one-year deal with the team. He'll receive a signing bonus of $65,000.

Panthers | Sign Ed Dickson

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 11:46:22 -0700

The Carolina Panthers have signed TE Ed Dickson (Ravens) Thursday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Dickson's value has probably not changed as a TE2. The one thing to keep in mind is that Greg Olsen has had time to develop chemistry with Cam Newton. Dickson will not have much of an opportunity to build chemistry this offseason.
