Seattle Seahawks tight end Ed Dickson brought in the game-winning touchdown on Thursday night as the Seahawks topped Green Bay. Dickson was only targeted once all night, and it was on a wide open pattern right down the gut with the game on the line. Unfortunately, Seattle appears to continue to struggle with how best to use a receiving tight end as Dickson has only been targeted five times in four games. Two of those have now gone for touchdowns, but his use is way too unpredictable to be a valuable fantasy target. If he can get a few more consistent opportunities, he may become viable late in the year, but it's unlikely.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Ed Dickson finally got on the field this week, and he made his presence felt by hauling in a touchdown against Detroit. Dickson caught both passes sent his way, and he finished the game with 54 yards receiving after a huge 42-yard gainer. Dickson has previously shown that he can be an effective receiving tight end, and it's likely that he'll start to take over more of that role from Nick Vannett in coming weeks. That said, Seattle's offense is currently rolling and has no shortage of attractive weapons. Dickson could get lost in the shuffle of a group that simply has too many good things.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 tight end Ed Dickson (quadriceps) from the Non-Football Injury list on Saturday, and he's active for the first time this year for Week 8 against the Lions. He should immediately step into the team's pass-catching role at tight end and could see significant snaps right away. Dickson is in play as a TE2 for those desperate at the position, but don't expect much right off the bat.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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) will be 'crucial' for the offense the rest of the season, according to QB Russell Wilson.
Seattle Seahawks CB Neiko Thorpe (groin) and OG Jordan Simmons (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 26, and are listed as doubtful for Week 8. DE Rasheem Green (ankle) fully participated in practice but is listed as questionable. OG D.J. Fluker (knee) and DT Shamar Stephen (foot) were limited during practice but are not on the injury report. DT Jarran Reed (illness), TE Ed Dickson (quadriceps), TE Nick Vannett (back), RB Rashaad Penny (finger), LB K.J. Wright (knee) and DE Dion Jordan (knee) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.
Seattle Seahawks DT Shamar Stephen (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 25. OG D.J. Fluker (knee), DE Rasheem Green (ankle) and CB Neiko Thorpe (groin) were limited during practice. DT Jarran Reed (illness), TE Ed Dickson (quadriceps), TE Nick Vannett (back), RB Rashaad Penny (finger), LB K.J. Wright (knee) and DE Dion Jordan (knee) fully participated in practice.
Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson (quadriceps) is expected to play in the Week 8 game as long as he does not suffer a setback during practice this week, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Seattle Seahawks DT Jarran Reed (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 24. TE Ed Dickson (quadriceps), TE Nick Vannett (back), OG D.J. Fluker (knee), RB Rashaad Penny (finger), DE Rasheem Green (ankle), LB K.J. Wright (knee), DE Dion Jordan (knee) and CB Neiko Thorpe (illness) were limited during practice.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said tight end Ed Dickson (groin) has been working hard leading up to this week and should have a chance to play quite a bit in Week 8 against the Lions if he gets through his practice work this week. Dickson has been on the Non-Football Injury list all year but should return and be the team's main pass-catching tight end with Will Dissly on Injured Reserve and Nick Vannett also hurt. Don't expect much from Dickson right off the bat, but he is worth a stash in deeper leagues or for those owners desperate at the position.
Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson (groin, quadriceps) participated in practice Monday, Oct. 22. He is currently on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.
Seattle Seahawks LB K.J. Wright (knee) and TE Ed Dickson (groin, quadriceps) have a chance to take the field in Week 8 following Seattle's bye week, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll does have more confidence that Dickson will be ready. Wright suffered a setback in his recovery from knee surgery. DT Rasheem Green (ankle) and TE Nick Vannett (back) are expected to return to practice next week.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Ed Dickson (knee) and linebacker K.J. Wright (knee) could make their season debuts following the Week 7 bye against the Lions on Oct. 28. Head coach Pete Carroll said both players will practice next week, but he sounded more confident about Dickson, who spent the first six weeks on the Non-Football Injury list. Wright had a setback a few weeks after his arthroscopic knee surgery but "has had a couple really good days." Tight end Nick Vannett (back) will get some "special work" in this week and could also return in Week 8. Seattle's defense will be much stronger in the middle whenever Wright returns. Dickson should serve as the main pass-catching tight end whenever he returns, but he'll merely be a TE2 for fantasy owners.
With Seattle Seahawks rookie tight end Will Dissly (knee) expected to be out for the rest of the year, head coach Pete Carroll said that the team could look to add a tight end off the practice squad. Ed Dickson (quadriceps) is on track to return from the Non-Football Injury list after Week 6 when he's eligible. With Dissly out, Seattle only has Nick Vannett on the active roster. Dickson could become a depth piece for the position in deeper leagues, and he could become the main pass-catching tight end whenever he returns.
Seattle Seahawks TE Ed Dickson (groin, quadriceps) is on track to be activated from the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list after Week 6, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Ed Dickson (quadriceps) said that he's ready for Week 1 against the Broncos. It looks like he'll come off the Non-Football Injury list ahead of the season opener, but he'll likely be behind Nick Vannett as the main pass-catching tight end if he's active. Dickson can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Seattle Seahawks QB Austin Davis (undisclosed), OT Jamarco Jones (ankle) and LB Erik Walden (hip) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Sept. 1. TE Ed Dickson (groin, quadriceps) was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Ed Dickson (quadriceps) is likely to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to start the regular season. He was unable to practice or play during the entire preseason due to quadriceps and groin injuries, according to head coach Pete Carroll. It's also possible Dickson begins on the Reserve/Injured Designated To Return list. Either way, Dickson is expected to be sidelined at least six games, so he isn't helping anyone's fantasy roster. He was inked to help fill the void left by Jimmy Graham, but for now it will be Nick Vannett starting at tight end with rookie Will Dissly as the primary blocking tight end.
