Panthers TE Ed Dickson no longer a 'forgotten man'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Panthers TE Ed Dickson has caught eight passes on nine targets for 237 yards in the past two games.

“I don’t think they’re going to forget me," he said.

Fantasy Impact:

HC Ron Rivera called Dickson a "forgotten man" in the team's offense, but that's no longer the case. While it didn't look that way when Greg Olsen went down, Rivera said the team wouldn't change the offense and that certainly seems to be the case.

The Carolina Panthers bid farewell to tight end Greg Olsen on Tuesday (for at least the next month and a half).

The three-time Pro Bowl tight end was placed on injured reserve with a broken foot, the Panthers announced.

"He broke the fifth metatarsal on his right foot -- it's called a Jones fracture," Panthers athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion told Max Henson of the team's official site. "He had a screw inserted to repair the fracture."

Fantasy Impact:

Olsen can practice again in six weeks and play in eight. McCaffrey could see more targets with the loss of Olsen, and Dickson likely takes over as the team's TE1.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) to miss 6-8 weeks

Already in need of help to spruce up their offense, the Carolina Panthers sustained a massive blow on Sunday.

Tight end Greg Olsen told reporters that he broke his foot in the first half of Sunday's 9-3 win over the Buffalo Bills in Carolina. Originally expected to return to the game, Olsen was carted back onto the field to start the second half in a walking boot and crutches -- an ominous sign that foreshadowed the worst-case scenario.

"I broke my foot. It's tough. It sucks," Olsen told reporters via the team's official site.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Olsen is expected to miss about six to eight games and he could be placed on injured reserve. It's not believed to be a season-ending injury.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said McCaffrey is a possibility to replace Olsen as a security blanket, but otherwise it's a big blow to this offense which is off to a slow start. Dickson, meanwhile caught 54 balls for 528 yards and five TDs in his second season for a Ravens, but hasn't come close since - he also hasn't really needed to. Dickson did catch a 20-yard pass in Week 2 after Olsen went down, so there is some hope he can at least help to fill the void.

Greg Olsen figures it was a good run that appears over due to a major injury.

X-rays on Sunday revealed the Panthers three-time Pro Bowl tight end suffered a broken right foot in Carolina's 9-3 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and is expected to miss significant playing time.

Fantasy Impact:

Olsen hasn't missed a game in his 10 seasons but that streak looks to be over. Olsen was in a walking boot, and according to the story, "felt something pop." The team wasn't ready to speculate how long Olsen would miss but we'll continue to keep you updated.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) done for the day

Sunday, September 17, 2017, 2:55pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

Losing Greg Olsen is about the worst possible thing that could happen to the Carolina Panthers offense, save another shoulder injury for Cam Newton.

With 11 minutes left in the second quarter, Greg Olsen limped off the field with his right shoe in his hand on the way to the locker room.

Related players: Ed Dickson, Chris Manhertz

Fantasy Impact:

It was a non-contact injury. Interestingly enough, Olsen was ruled probably to return, however after halftime he was ruled out. It didn't look good when the injury happened, but perhaps the team is just taking precautions. Either way, this will be a big story to monitor this week.
