Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson hauled in all three of his targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Dickson scored on a bit of a broken play midway through the fourth quarter, uncovering himself as Russell Wilson was buying time and making a leaping horizontal grab for the two-yard score. The journeyman hasn't proven to be a consistent option at any point throughout his long NFL career and he's not about to start now. He does not need to be on a fantasy roster outside the deepest of dynasty leagues.

Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson posted two receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions on his two targets in his season debut.
Huddle Up: Dickson was activated from the NFI list over the weekend and posted a 42-yard grab and a 12-yard catch for score. He outplayed Nick Vannett already, but he should still be treated as a more of a TE2 heading into Week 9 against the L.A. Chargers.

Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson (quadriceps) will make his 2018 debut Sunday, Oct. 28, against the Detroit Lions after missing the first six games with a quadriceps injury.
Huddle Up: Dickson was signed in the offseason to help replace Jimmy Graham, and the Seahawks can use his services with rookie TE Will Dissly out with a knee injury. Dickson will split time, though, with Nick Vannett, and it's best to wait and see what develops before plugging him into your fantasy lineup.

The Seattle Seahawks activated TE Ed Dickson (quadriceps) from the non-football injury (NFI) list on Saturday, Oct. 27 and waived TE Tyrone Swoopes to make room on the 53-man roster.
Huddle Up: Dickson will be competing with Nick Vannett for targets in the Seattle offense at tight end, and that's not a huge hurdle to have to overcome. He isn't expected to be an immediate fantasy option, but he is worth keeping tabs on at a very shallow position.

Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson (groin, quadriceps) has a good chance of beginning the regular season on the Non-Football injury list, according to ESPN.com's Brady Henderson. That would keep Dickson sidelined for at least six games.

Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson (quadriceps) has yet to practice during training camp due to a quadriceps injury, and head coach Pete Carroll said 'it's still a bit' before Dickson will be back on the practice field.
Huddle Up: Dickson had a chance at a big role in the offense, but right now it's Nick Vannett and Will Dissly handling the top two spots at tight end. Even when Dickson is healthy, he is more of a blocking tight end rather than a successful pass catcher, and he always has been. Don't expect much in the way of fantasy appeal at this point of his career.

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent TE Ed Dickson and Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent TE Trey Burton are expected to receive interest from the Miami Dolphins during free agency.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins likely will be losing two tight ends this offseason, so Burton and Dickson could be starting options for them. Burton would have more fantasy value if he signs with the Dolphins and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end, while Dickson likely would be a No. 2 tight end.

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson scored his first touchdown of the season, while hauling in three of five targets for 33 yards in the team's Week 10 win Monday, Nov. 13, against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Since Greg Olsen went down with injury, Dickson has emerged into a decent tight end option for deeper formats. In fact, he's garnered five or more targets in five of the last six weeks, though he's only got one touchdown to show for it. As a result, he's not someone to lean on in standard leagues, though he's not a bad streaming option either in such scenarios.

Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson was targeted twice in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons, but he went without a reception.
Huddle Up: Dickson blew up for 175 yards in Week 5 in Detroit, but he has managed just 11 receptions for 78 yards on 20 targets over the past four games. That's more like what you can expect from Dickson, which is not much. Greg Olsen cannot return soon enough from a foot injury for Cam Newton and the Cats.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Ed Dickson (ankle) is active for Week 8's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Even though he has received a consistent number of targets while filling in for Greg Olsen (foot), fantasy owners should not expect Dickson to come close to replicating the five-catch, 175-yard performance he had in Week 5 versus the Detroit Lions. He should be viewed as a midrange TE2 in most fantasy formats.
