2013 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Aug-15-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (8-14): Dickson's own body apparently won't let him take advantage of a good thing: Dennis Pitta's absence. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on Tuesday that Dickson's hamstring injury could keep him out for at least the regular season opener. Baltimore recently signed veterans Visanthe Shiancoe and Dallas Clark. Perhaps that's an indication of the team's concern for Dickson. At this point, none of the three is draftable.

Update (7-27): Dennis Pitta suffered a dislocated hip during practice, ending the top-10 tight end's season. Obviously a huge blow for the Ravens, but an even bigger one for fantasy players considering the limited TE1 options. Dickson, who caught 54 passes in 2011, now takes over in Baltimore and moves into the middle of the TE2 range in part due minimal options at the position. Could become an interesting option considering Ravens WR2 job remains unsettled, meaning second pass receiver behind Torrey Smith remains undetermined.

Profile: After hauling in 54 receptions during the 2011 campaign, Ed Dickson was considered the Ravens' fantasy TE to own by many. Others talked up Dennis Pitta, a more natural pass-catcher. Well, Pitta indeed became the more productive option as Dickson finished with 21 catches for 225 yards. Heading into the upcoming season, Pitta is a top-10 fantasy option, while his tag-team partner is not a draftable option in standard leagues. However, Dickson is the better all-around TE option, sources say he's looked impressive during spring workouts and he should receive plenty of snaps considering the Ravens' issues at WR2. Should Pitta miss any games, Dickson could be a top-15 option, but a waiver wire play until then.

18.01 KFFSC - This goes well with the Jacoby Jones pick earlier. Torrey Smith and Pita are going to get their share of targets. The others are going to Jones and Dickson. It should be clear early on who that's going to be. Both guys may be worth keeping all season but I know at least one is going to shine.
