Scouting report

CAR TE Ed Dickson - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Ed Dickson blew up against the Lions last week with 5 catches for 175 yards. He’s only gained that many yards in three of his seven previous seasons! Dickson is benefitting from additional targets as he starts in place of an injured Greg Olsen, but he’ll need to be consistent before he’s worth every-week consideration.

This week, he faces an Eagles defense allowing 12.1 fantasy PPR points per game to the tight end position and giving up the fourth-most passing yards per game this season. With some upside in a good matchup, Dickson is worth streaming in deep leagues.

CAR TE Ed Dickson - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Detroit Lions

Ed Dickson had 62 yards on 3 catches against the Patriots last week, but he’s only been targeted 5 times in his two starts. There’s no reason to think he’ll suddenly become a reliable fantasy option in any league format. Detroit has only allowed 4 touchdown passes this season—only one to the tight end position.

CAR TE Ed Dickson - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. New Orleans Saints

Ed Dickson has a chance to step up with Greg Olsen out for an extended period of time with a broken foot. It’s hard to trust Dickson, though. He has had opportunities in the past but never really lived up to his high potential. Dickson has some deep-league Hail Mary potential this week against the woeful Saints defense, but there should be better options available in most leagues, even if you’re streaming.

CAR TE Ed Dickson - Week 21, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Super Bowl vs. Denver
Ed Dickson wasn’t targeted in the NFC Championship Game against the Cardinals and he’s unlikely to get considerable work in the Super Bowl this week. Dickson remains a backup to one of the best tight ends in the league, and he’s far too risky of an option for fantasy owners to bank on. If you can’t get one of the top two starters at the position, it’s going to be difficult to make up ground with Dickson.

CAR TE Ed Dickson - Week 20, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

NFC Championship vs. Arizona

Ed Dickson caught two passes for 22 yards in relief of Greg Olsen last week, as the Panthers had a scary moment where Olsen’s shoulder looked to be injured. Olsen appears to be fine for this week though, which makes Dickson still a backup. Dickson gets a couple looks each game as the backup tight end, but he’s not consistent enough to warrant fantasy consideration, and owners should look elsewhere this week.

CAR TE Ed Dickson - Week 19, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 19 vs Seattle
Ed Dickson scored the occasional touchdown for the Panthers this season, but he remains the backup tight end for the team behind Pro Bowler Greg Olsen, and as long as that’s the case, there’s no reason to assume he’ll be a reliable fantasy option. Owners should look elsewhere this week and avoid Dickson.

CAR TE Ed Dickson - Week 19, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Divisional Round – Ed Dickson vs. Seattle
Ed Dickson had a nice 34 yard catch last week against the Cardinals, but it was the only pass he caught, and he continues to be mostly an afterthought in the Panthers offense. There’s no reason to expect that to change this week, and against a tough Seahawks defense, we have him next to last in our rankings this week. Look elsewhere.
