Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams: I'm a first-round fantasy pick because 'we have no receivers'

I hope I can get DeAngelo Williams to play in my fantasy league, but I would love to see him choose (overdraft) himself in the first round of the draft. Because that's where he thinks he belongs.
During an appearance on NFL Network's "NFL AM" last week, Williams said, "I joked with people that my fantasy value went up after we got rid of our four receivers, but it's the truth," Williams said. "I went from probably being drafted in the fifth and sixth round to being in the first round – me and Jonathan (Stewart) alike because we have no receivers."
The Panthers still have their leading receiver from last year, tight end Greg Olsen. But they lost Steve Smith, Domenik Hixon, Brandon LaFell, and Ted Ginn Jr. in free agency. So far, they have filled the void by signing Jerricho Cotchery, Tiquan Underwood, and Jason Avant.


Panthers sign TE Ed Dickson to 1-year deal

The Panthers added tight end Ed Dickson to their roster on Thursday. The two sides agreed to a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum of $795,000. Dickson spent four largely forgettable seasons with the Ravens and was no longer need there with Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels in town.
His best statistical season came in 2011 when Dickson caught 54 passes in 16 games for 528 yards and five touchdowns.
