Week 2 vs. CIN
Receiving: 1 / 17 / 0 on 2 targets
He was targeted in the 2nd half once Flacco could not connect with his primary WRs. Dickson managed to make a nice move and get open for his 1 reception. He clearly is behind Todd Heap and will remain there for the rest of the season unless Heap is injured.
Week 5 vs. DEN
Receiving: 1 / 58 / 0 on 2 targets
Dickson is a young rookie who led the Ravens in yardage in this game, although it all came on one long 58 yard jump ball. Flacco just set back and threw it up, and Dickson outjumped the receiver and hauled it in in basketball style. Not much more to it than that. Dickson looks the part of a big WR and this play highlighted his athletic ability that will no doubt come in handy in this offense.
Week 13 vs. PIT
Receiving: 3 / 21 / 0 on 7 targets
Dickson, the rookie from Oregon, had a game to forget in this one. Drafted much more for his pass-catching abilities than his blocking abilities, Dickson was forced into a game plan that was much more suited for Todd Heap. He was like a square peg in a round hole because he was asked to block the always effective outside rushers of the Steelers. Even when he got out into coverage, Dickson had a bad moment. He dropped a beautifully lofted pass when the Ravens had caught the Steelers in a very bad scheme. Injured defensive end Brett Kiesel, coming off of a hamstring injury, ended up being the guy tasked with covering Dickson. Dickson clearly won the matchup and was streaking downfield. Flacco lofted the ball in, but Dickson bobbled it for what seemed like a full minute and dropped the ball seven yards later. He was also targeted on the failed 4th-and-2 that was the Ravens' last offensive play. It was not Dickson's fault, however. He made himself available in the flat, but Flacco left the pass short in the face of heavy pressure. Better times are ahead for this young player though. Should Heap miss any more time, the Ravens will adjust the gameplan to highlight Dickson's strengths and not expose him to any more mismatches like he faced while trying to block James Harrison in this game.
Week 15 vs. NO
Receiving: 2 / 33 / 1 on 2 targets
Dickson got the Ravens off of the right foot when he reeled in a short pas on third and long in the Saints end of the field and then broke a tackle and ran through some defenders for the TD. He also flashed speed in the open field on the catch and run and he should be in line for a bigger role as he develops next year.
Week 17 vs. CIN
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 1 targets
He had no receptions, but it was notable that the one deep ball Flacco threw went Dickson's way, and Dickson almost used his size and came down with it, but just wasn't able to. It will be interesting to see the development of Dickson into the 2011 season.
