Charlotte Observer - [Full Article]

In four games, opposing tight ends have caught 33 passes for 395 yards against the Benngals. Last week against the Patriots, Rob Gronkowski and Tim Wright victimized the Bengals’ defense for 185 yards on 11 catches and two touchdowns.

The Panthers don’t just have Greg Olsen. Ed Dickson, who signed with Carolina this offseason from Baltimore, recorded his first catches of the season last week against the Bears.

Dickson has worked on his chemistry with quarterback Cam Newton this season, and Newton seems more comfortable throwing the ball to Dickson as the Panthers offense evolves.

Fantasy Impact:

The writer believes Panther TEs could be key against the Bengals again this week and that's good news for Olsen and his owners. Olsen is officially listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but all indications are he's going to play. However, it's something to keep an eye on leading up to the game.

Panthers plan to use TEs more in offense

Ron Rivera said the Carolina Panthers plan to use their tight ends more in the passing game this season.

The Panthers added free agent Ed Dickson this offseason to go along with Greg Olsen, giving them a pair of receiving options at tight end similar to what they had in Rivera's first season in 2011 with Olsen and Jeremy Shockey.

"Absolutely," Rivera said when asked if the moved was designed to replicate three years ago. "You want that double threat."

Fantasy Impact:

Great news for Greg Olsen owners, but it's also not really a surprise since Carolina doesn't have a lot of big names at WR. On top of that, rookie WR Kelvin Benjamin just returned to camp but is likely a little behind. Olsen is ranked 6th on our TE list, but has an ADP of the 9th round, along with guys like Jordan Reed and Kyle Rudolph who also continue to get positive press in camp in terms of getting. They are turning into attractive targets at that point in drafts.

The Panthers are lining tight end Ed Dickson outside like a wide receiver a lot in a two tight-end formation. At 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, he's yet another big target for Newton. With Dickson, starting tight end Greg Olsen, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery on the field the average height of the receivers is just under 6-4. With a quarterback who has a tendency to throw high at times that could come in handy. Regardless, judging by the number of formations Dickson is a part of, he will be a large part of this offense.

Panthers running 'a lot' of two-TE sets

Panthers beat writer David Newton was asked what formations the Panthers were running at OTAs. He responded, "They ran a lot of two-tight end formations. Newcomer Ed Dickson really looked good."

Fantasy Impact:

The Panthers are likely to go run-heavy given the state of their WR corps so it makes sense that they'd utilize two-TE sets. It will impact the number of snaps that the WR3 will eventually get, so we're eager to see how the WR pecking order shakes out. We're guessing it will be Jerricho Cotchery and Kelvin Benjamin, with Tiquan Underwood filling the Ted Ginn role.
