With the surprise release of Todd Heap last season, Dickson was thrust into a starting role and played reasonably well in his first year in that role, catching 54 passes for 528 yards and five touchdowns. Entering his third year in the league, Dickson is a talented tight end that needs to play more consistently and display better hands. Even if Dickson improves in those areas, he is unlikely to break out given the presence of fellow third year player Dennis Pitta. Pitta basically shared the pass catching role with Dickson last season, eating up 56 targets and his presence relegates Dickson to low-end TE2 status in 2012.
Greg Olsen (knee) expected to play Week 15-- Tue Dec 15 9:33 am --
Panthers TE will be limited in practice but should face Giants
Panthers beat writer (CharlotteObserver.com) Joe Person on Twitter: "Greg Olsen expected to be limited with his knee injury this week. But he hasn't missed a game since his rookie year. He will play Sunday."(Twitter)
FF Today's Take:Olsen is probably fine to fire up as a TE1 but it's worth monitoring his status during the week and before game time. If for any reason he's unable to go on Sunday, TE Ed Dickson makes a fine replacement in a good matchup.
