Ed Dickson hasn’t done a whole lot, in fantasy football terms. He was supposed to adequately fill the shoes of Dennis Pitta, who has yet to play a game this season due to a hip injury, but has yet to do so.
If anytime was the perfect time for Dickson to show case his talents, which we all know he has stored somewhere, it would be against the Packers on Sunday.
The Packers pass defense has not fared well, this season. On top of that, they have had their fair share of tight ends having good games against them.
It should also be noted that Clay Matthews won’t be playing in Sunday’s game due to a broken thumb. While he isn’t the greatest in pass coverage, he does excel at providing pressure at the line of scrimmage to opposing team’s tight ends and receivers.
Dickson’s performance will always be questioned from here on out since he has yet to show anything significant this season. But if it’s an emergency and you need somebody to plug in at tight end on your fantasy football team, then Dickson might end up being your best bet.
