Ed Dickson snagged two-of-three targets for 22 yards Sunday in the Panthers' Week 17 loss to the Falcons.
Dickson put himself on the streaming radar with a magnificent performance against the Lions in Week 5 (five catches for a career-high 175 yards) but quickly faded and was scarcely used upon Greg Olsen’s return. Dickson scored once all year and caught just two passes (both in Sunday's finale) over his final four games. Even as a cheap punt play, Dickson won’t be an appealing DFS option for next week’s playoff opener against the Saints. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 08:17:00 PM

Ed Dickson caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Panthers' Week 13 loss to the Saints.

Even with Greg Olsen (foot) back on the shelf, Dickson couldn't get anything going. Olsen seems more likely than not to return for next week's game against the Vikings, once again rendering Dickson irrelevant.

Ed Dickson caught 3-of-5 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 10 win over the Dolphins.

Dickson's touchdown came on a laser from QB Cam Newton which he did a good job snagging out of the air. With Greg Olsen (ankle) nearing a return, Dickson isn't worth rostering going into the Panthers Week 11 bye.

Ed Dickson failed to catch either of his two targets in the Week 9 win over the Falcons.

Cam Newton missed Dickson down the seam on one of them. Greg Olsen (ankle) is back practicing and nearing a return. Dickson is a weak fantasy play.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 04:59:00 PM

Ed Dickson caught 4-of-5 targets for 24 yards in the Panthers' Week 8 win over the Bucs.

With Cam Newton struggling, Dickson had a quiet day in a great spot. Dickson has drawn at least five targets in each of his past four games, but totaled just 78 yards over the past three weeks. He'll be a fill-in TE2 until Greg Olsen (foot) comes off injured reserve.

Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) is active for Week 8 against the Bucs.

Dickson has settled in as a TE2, but has an excellent matchup in an awful defense that is epically banged up. Inactive for the Panthers are FB Alex Armah, DE Bryan Cox, QB Garrett Gilbert, CB LaDarius Gunter, C Ryan Kalil, OT John Theus and RB Fozzy Whittaker.

Ed Dickson (ankle) is questionable for Week 8 against the Bucs.

Dickson returned to a full practice Thursday and should play Sunday. The Bucs are brutal against the pass, putting Dickson on the streaming map.

Ed Dickson (ankle) returned to Panthers practice Thursday, getting in a full session.

He'll be good to go against the Bucs. Dickson has settled in as a TE2 since his hot stretch a few weeks back.

Ed Dickson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

It's the first we've heard of an ankle issue for Dickson, but he did have the joint taped after the Week 7 loss to the Bears. Consider Dickson day to day.
Wed, Oct 25, 2017 01:03:00 PM

Ed Dickson hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards in the Panthers' Week 7 loss to the Bears.

Like last week, Dickson remains a big part of the passing game, but he struggled to make much happen outside of an 11-yard catch. He will be a back-end streamer next week against the Bucs.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 04:47:00 PM

Ed Dickson caught 4-of-8 passes for 36 yards in the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Eagles.

The catches were actually Dickson's second most of the season, though the yardage was his lowest in three weeks. The takeaway is that Dickson has emerged as a legitimate part of the Panthers' offense, and will have weeks where he offers TE1 appeal in good matchups.
Fri, Oct 13, 2017 12:39:00 AM

Ed Dickson caught 5-of-5 targets for 175 yards in the Panthers' Week 5 win over the Lions.

Dickson's previous career high for yardage was 79, set back in 2011. Typically a blocking tight end, Dickson's passing-game role has been elevated in Greg Olsen's absence. He has now strung together consecutive games of 60-plus yards. The Lions simply refused to cover Dickson on Sunday. Still, Dickson's weekly target totals over the past three games are 1 > 4 > 5. He will be a fringe streamer when the Panthers face the Eagles next.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 05:09:00 PM

Ed Dickson caught 3-of-4 targets for 62 yards in the Panthers' Week 4 win over the Patriots.

Dickson's missed connection was a drop. Dickson's odds of establishing fantasy value in Greg Olsen's absence are long.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 05:14:00 PM

Ed Dickson caught an eight-yard pass in the Panthers' Week 3 loss to the Saints.

The reception, Dickson's only target, could not have been more pointless. It came from backup QB Derek Anderson with 30 seconds remaining in what would be a 34-13 loss. Dickson simply isn't a pass catcher. Even with all the Panthers' injuries, Dickson isn't going to make a fantasy impact. He's off the radar.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 05:43:00 PM

Panthers TE Ed Dickson told OC Mike Shula to give him "all the opportunities" which would have gone to Greg Olsen (broken foot).

"I wouldn’t say we won’t miss a guy like Greg Olsen," Dickson cautioned, but the tight end clearly believes he can fill the void. "I told Shula I know the jersey number don’t say 88, but don’t change the playbook." Dickson has primarily been a blocker since joining Carolina, but he did catch 54 passes for 528 yards and five scores for the Ravens in 2011. It is possible he carves out streaming value with Olsen sidelined, and he gets a great matchup right out of the gate with the Saints coming to town.
