Panthers' Ed Dickson: Just 36 yards Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickson caught four of eight targets for 36 yards in Thursday night's 28-23 loss to the Eagles.

Dickson came back down to earth after exploding for a career-high 175 yards last Sunday. Through his eight seasons, Dickson has proved his output Thursday is more of what fantasy owners should expect. While Dickson is yet to find the end zone this season, his 17 targets over the past three weeks trump his mere four through the first three, evidencing his expanded role in Greg Olsen's absence.

Panthers' Ed Dickson: Explodes for career day in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickson brought in all five of his targets for 175 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Lions.

Dickson's career day played a big part in the season-high 355 yards that Cam Newton mustered, with the veteran tight end rumbling through the heart of the Lions defense on receptions of 57 and 64 yards for a sizable portion of his production. The 30-year-old had also flashed his downfield ability -- albeit to a much less spectacular degree -- in Week 4 against the Patriots, notching a 25-yard catch on his way to a 20.7 YPC on three receptions. While he's highly unlikely to completely replicate the value that the sidelined Greg Olsen (foot) brings to the offense, Dickson certainly appears to be a capable substitute for the time being. He'll look to make big contributions again this coming Thursday versus the Eagles.

Panthers' Ed Dickson: Hauls in three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickson caught three of four targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 33-30 win over the Patriots.

Dickson fared much better in his second start in Greg Olsen's (foot) absence, finishing third on the Panthers in receiving yards. In fact, Dickson's 62 yards marked his third most in any game over the course of his eight seasons. While that suggests the veteran overachieved Sunday, Olsen's extended sideline stint figures to open more opportunities than usual going forward.

Panthers' Ed Dickson: Catches one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickson caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Saints.

Dickson started as expected in the place of injured tight end Greg Olsen (foot), but his involvement in Carolina's passing game remained rather restricted. That comes despite the Panthers trailing by a sizable margin as the game played out. While Dickson's fantasy value has been limited throughout his career, Sunday's performance is probably as poor as it'll get while Olsen is out.

Panthers' Ed Dickson: Set for expanded role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dickson will serve as Carolina's top tight end in the absence of Greg Olsen, who is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a broken foot, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Olsen hasn't missed a game with the Panthers, which explains why Dickson has only 39 catches in 50 regular-season games since joining the team. He did catch 54 of 89 targets for 528 yards and five touchdowns for the Ravens in 2011, but his hands aren't particularly reliable and he doesn't have a knack for getting open. While unlikely to emerge as a major threat down the seam in Olsen's mold, Dickson has at least shown some ability to pick up yards after the catch on short passes. He'll begin his tenure as the No. 1 tight end with a friendly matchup against the Saints.
