Dickson nabbed three of five targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 45-21 win over Miami.
Dickson leaped for a seven-yard touchdown reception on a quick slant just before the half during Monday's game, his first score of the season. Week 5's explosion against Detroit aside, Dickson has been solid but unspectacular this season as he has seen an uptick in usage with Greg Olsen (foot) on the shelf. Those opportunities seem to be coming to an end with Olsen reportedly expected back for Week 12's game against the Jets.
Dickson failed to haul in either of his two targets in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Falcons.
Dickson was part of an offense that only passed for 137 yards, which was distributed between three receivers. With Dickson not being one of those, his streak of five straight games with at least three receptions was snapped. The veteran will look to bounce back next Monday night against the Dolphins.
Dickson caught four of five targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Buccaneers.
Dickson overcame an ankle injury to suit up Sunday, and ended up trailing only Christian McCaffrey in receptions. Admittedly, Dickson's four grabs didn't yield much yardage, but his season average of under 50 yards per game should've tempered fantasy owners' expectations in the first place.
Dickson (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest at Tampa Bay.
The No. 1 tight end during Greg Olsen's recovery from surgery on a Jones fracture in his right foot, Dickson has averaged 2.8 receptions (on 4.5 targets) for 31 yards in four starts aside from a five-catch, 175-yard outburst in Week 5. Dickson will aim to join the ranks of tight ends (Rhett Ellison, Troy Niklas and Logan Thomas) that have reached the end zone against the Buccaneers defense this season.
Dickson was able to put in full practices Thursday and Friday, so his availability for the weekend never seemed to be in much peril. Since his breakout five-catch, 175-yard performance in Week 5 against the Lions, Dickson has fallen back to earth the last two weeks, logging a combined seven receptions for 54 yards.
