Dickson's only target Thursday night against the Packers resulted in a 15-yard game-winning TD in his team's 27-24 victory. Since his return from a quad injury, Dickson has totaled five targets in four games, en route to hauling in four catches for 93 yards. While two of those catches have gone for touchdowns, his low volume makes him a hit-or-miss fantasy play, especially while sharing tight end work with Nick Vannett, who out-snapped Dickson by a 42-30 count Thursday.
Dickson caught his only target for 24 yards in Sunday's 36-31 loss to the Rams. Since returning from the NFI list in Week 8, Dickson has been targeted just four times in three games, but two of those came in the red zone. He's not a dependable fantasy option at this time, especially in Week 11 against the Packers, who haven't allowed a touchdown to a tight end this year.
Dickson brought in both of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-14 win over the Lions. It was a nice debut for Dickson, who missed the previous six games while on the reserve/non-football injury list. He made an excellent 12-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter and snagged a 42-yarder in the third frame. Starting tight end Nick Vannett was targeted more (three), but Dickson could take over the top spot with a few more solid outings.
Dickson (quadriceps) will play Sunday versus the Lions, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Dickson has played second fiddle in Carolina the last four years, and he signed with the Seahawks in the offseason in hopes of making a heightened impact. With rookie tight end Will Dissly (kneecap) out for the season, Dickson will split time with Nick Vannett. The volume isn't guaranteed for Dickson, so he's likely a touchdown-dependent fantasy option. In his eight-year career, Dickson has just one season with more than two touchdowns.
Dickson (quadriceps) was activated off the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. Dickson was a full practice participant Thursday and Friday, clearing the way for his return against the Lions on Sunday. The 31-year-old could provide an immediate boost to the Seahawks' passing game that has been searching for answers at tight end since Will Dissly was lost for the season due to a knee injury.
