by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) New Panthers tight end Ed Dickson heads into training camp looking to solidify his role as the No. 2 option behind starter Greg Olsen, reports the Charlotte Observer.

Dickson had "an impressive showing during OTAs." He had 25 catches for 273 yards and one touchdown last year in Baltimore.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Ravens receive small offensive contributions


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) A few Ravens made small offensive contributions Week 16. Tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson each finished the game with four grabs. Pitta had 34 yards while Dickson had 44 yards.

Wide receiver Marlon Brown also chipped in with four receptions for 51 yards on seven targets. Vonta Leach had one catch for 1 yard. Running back Bernard Pierce rushed for 31 yards on 10 carries and caught three of his five targets for 27 yards. Bernard Scott had two carries for 11 yards and one catch for 2 yards. Tandon Doss was targeted once but held without a grab in a 41-7 defeat.

Ravens get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Several Ravens contributed to the Week 15 win at Detroit. Tight end Dennis Pitta caught two of four targets for 24 yards, tight end Ed Dickson caught all three of his targets for 10 yards, and running back Bernard Pierce carried seven times for 21 yards. 

They'll play the Patriots in Week 16.


Ed Dickson records first TD since 2011 season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson ended a very long scoring drought Week 14 vs. Minnesota, recording his first touchdown since Week 16 of the 2011 season. Dickson finished with two catches for 8 yards during a 29-26 win.

Dickson opened the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown catch on a play-action pass on 3rd-and-goal in the first quarter. It was his seventh-career touchdown.

Dickson was targeted five times in the win. The Ravens are back in action Week 15 at Detroit.


Ravens tight ends combine for two catches in Week 13


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Ravens tight ends Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark had little impact in a 22-20 win over the Steelers in Week 13. Dickson brought in one pass for 16 yards, and Clark also had just one catch for 8 yards.

Neither Dickson nor Clark has caught more than three passes over the last five games, heading into Week 14 against the Vikings.  


Big catch makes Ed Dickson's day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Thanks in large part to a 27-yard catch in the second quarter -- the team's third-longest play of the day -- Ravens tight end Ed Dickson had his best game of the season Week 12 against the Jets. In all, he caught three passes for a season-high 55 yards. His five targets also equaled a season high.

More often than not this season, Dickson has taken a back seat to fellow tight end Dallas Clark, who had three catches for 24 yards in Week 12. The Ravens host the Steelers in Week 13.


Ravens tight ends struggle against Bears


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Ravens tight ends Dallas Clark and Ed Dickson struggled to get going Week 11 against the Bears.

Clark managed two catches on four targets, picking up 31 yards. He did make an excellent one-handed catch on fourth down on the team's game-tying drive. Dickson caught just one ball for 16 yards. He was targeted near the goal line early in the game, and forced a pass interference which led to a Ravens touchdown.

Both players will look for more Week 12 against the Jets.


Ravens tight ends have strong yardage matchup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) The Ravens tight ends could rack up some yards against Chicago Week 11.

The Bears haven't been great against tight ends, allowing 8.11 Fantasy points per game. The team has allowed 73.33 receiving yards per game, which is the third highest total. The Bears, however, have done a good job keeping tight ends out of the end zone. Tight ends have only scored three times against Chicago this season.

That may not bode well for Ed Dickson or Dallas Clark. Neither player has been a big part of the offense recently. Dickson has caught six balls in the past three games. Clark has been more effective, scoring three touchdowns in the past four games, but he's only caught two passes in the past two games. Even if one emerges as a strong yardage threat, it's tough to expect either to score.


Ed Dickson has 28 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/10/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson caught three passes for 28 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Bengals. Dickson was targeted four times. 

A Baltimore tight end caught a touchdown in Week 10, but it went to Dallas Clark, in the first quarter. 

The Ravens travel to Chicago to face the Bears in Week 11. 


Ravens receivers help out in defeat to Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Several Ravens receivers made minor contrbutions to the offense Sunday in Cleveland. The most significant were Deonte Thompson, who caught three passes for 24 yards, and Tandon Doss, who added two receptions for 29 yards.

Also in the mix were tight ends Dallas Clark, who had just one reception for 14 yards, and Ed Dickson, who snagged one for 3 yards. Fullback Vonta Leach had 2 yards on one running attempt.


Ravens get minor contributions from role players in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) The Ravens received minor offensive contributions from a few role players Week 7 against the Steelers.

In the passing game, wide receiver Tandon Doss caught two passes from Joe Flacco for 35 yards while tight end Ed Dickson caught each of his first two passes for a first down and finished with 17 yards.

In the running game, Bernard Pierce had six carries for 13 yards (2.2 yards per carry) and caught one pass for a gain of 9 yards. Vonta Leach had three carries for 10 yards (3.3 yards per carry) and had only one catch for a 3-yard gain in a 19-16 defeat.

Ed Dickson ready to emerge for Ravens?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2013) After a horrendous start to the season filled with one dropped pass after the other, Ravens tight end Ed Dickson started to get on track Week 5 at Miami, totaling two catches for 51 yards. He now looks to build off that outing Week 6 vs. Green Bay.

Through four games against Green Bay, tight ends average 6.5 catches, 76.3 receiving yards and 11 Fantasy points per week, which is tied for the sixth-highest average in the NFL. Tight ends have also totaled three touchdowns against Green Bay.

The Ravens desperately need Dickson to start playing like the receiving option he was in 2011, when he totaled 54 catches for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games. It's hard to overlook Dickson missed most of the preseason recovering from a hamstring injury, so his slow start could be attributed to the fact he was getting caught up to game speed.

Perhaps last week's game was the start of Dickson's emergence in the passing game. Still, he has a ways to go to becoming a reliable Fantasy option. Dickson is nothing more than a potential bye-week Fantasy replacement in deeper formats Week 6.


Ed Dickson hauls in two passes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson was a surprising source of a big play in Week 5 against the Dolphins, as he came down with his longest reception of the season in a 26-23 win.

Dickson brought in two receptions for 51 yards, with a long grab of 43 yards. He was targeted just two times in the game.

Dickson has been the team's second option at tight end for much of the season, though he did outperform Dallas Clark Sunday. The Ravens take on the Packers in Week 6. 


Ravens coach calls out Ed Dickson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2013) After another dropped pass by tight end Ed Dickson Sunday against the Bills that led to one of quarterback Joe Flacco's five interceptions, Ravens coach John Harbaugh called out the fourth-year tight end, who had 54 catches for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011.

Dickson has just three receptions for 25 yards through four games, and he's had at least six dropped passes, according to The Baltimore Sun.

"That’s a long time ago, so I’m hard pressed to make that direct comparison," Harbaugh said Monday of Dickson's 2011 season. "The stats kind of speak for themselves as you’re alluding to. He’s not the same player right now than he was then obviously. Ed just needs to go catch the ball. Make it easy: Run fast, get open and catch the football, put it away and get upfield.

"That’s all he needs to do. And if he’s thinking about anything besides that, he’s doing himself a disservice. And if he’s lacking confidence for some reason, that’s on him. When you have that kind of talent, those kinds of gifts, go play ball, go show everybody what you’re capable of doing. That’s what I expect to see from Ed."


Ed Dickson goes for 12 yards


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson caught two passes for 12 yards during the Week 4 loss at Buffalo on Sunday. Dickson was targeted three times overall in the game by quarterback Joe Flacco.

The 26-year-old Dickson has just three catches this season for Baltimore over four games. He has yet to catch a touchdown pass. Baltimore plays at Miami Week 5.

Ed Dickson remains out of the loop


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson continues to be a complete nonfactor, as he was held without a catch for the second straight game in Week 3 against the Texans.

Dickson was targeted just once in the passing game, on a play that did not officially count, as it was erased by a personal foul by the Ravens. Dickson has now not received an official target in the last two games.

Dickson has just one reception for 13 yards on the season. 


Ed Dickson not targeted again after drop on opening play


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson came into Week 2 vs. Cleveland looking to change his fortunes after dropping four passes in the opener against the Broncos. Sadly, Dickson could not right the ship.

Dickson dropped a pass on the first play of the game Sunday and that ended his afternoon in the passing game. Dickson was not targeted the rest of the game and was held without a catch.

Dickson will once again look to get on track when the Ravens return to action Week 3 vs. Houston.


Ed Dickson ready to move past Week 1 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson said he doesn't plan to dwell on his four-drop performance in a Week 1 loss at Denver.

"A couple of those plays, I could have made over the middle," he said, per The Baltimore Sun. "At the end, it only counts as one loss. We can't dwell on it and let it affect us for next week. We have to take care of business and correct our mistakes."

Dickson gets a chance at redemption Week 2 vs. Cleveland. Dolphins tight end Charles Clay managed five catches for 54 yards Week 1 against the Browns.

Dickson missed most of the preseason battling a partially torn right hamstring, so it's not surprising he was a little rusty in the opener. Perhaps with another week under his belt he will be better Sunday against the Browns.

However, there's no need to feel obligated to keep him active just because he's a starter in the NFL. Dickson should be left out of most Fantasy starting lineups Week 2.


Ed Dickson flops in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson had a solid opportunity in Thursday's season opener against the Broncos in Week 1, but he failed to take advantage in a 49-27 loss.

Dickson was targeted five times in the game, but managed to bring just one of those passes in for 13 yards. He had a handful of costly drops, and was overshadowed by Dallas Clark, a late signee in training camp.

Dickson will try to bounce back in Week 2 against the Browns. 


Ed Dickson able to suit up


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson was active and in the lineup for Thursday's season opener against the Broncos in Week 1, despite suffering a partially torn hamstring in the preseason. Dickson is expected to start for the Ravens with Dennis Pitta out following hip surgery. 

Ed Dickson faces solid matchup in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson (thigh) has been able to practice in full all week, and is expected to play in Thursday's season opener against the Ravens. Just what kind of impact he can have in Week 1 is still unknown, given his swift recovery from a torn hamstring.

If Dickson is truly up to full speed, he could end up making an impact Thursday, as the Broncos allowed a league-worst 9.9 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends in 2012. The Ravens' tight ends, led by the now-injured Dennis Pitta, torched the Broncos for 209 yards on 13 catches with two touchdowns in two games last season.

Dickson could be in line for a big game against a depleted Broncos' linebacking corps, but he should be approached with caution in Week 1, due largely to his injury. 


Ed Dickson probable for Thursday's opener

(9/4/2013) Ravens tight end Ed Dickson (thigh) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Broncos. Dickson practiced in full all week.
