Ed Dickson moved to the top of the depth chart with a hip dislocation knocking out Dennis Pitta for the season. Dickson was quiet as the team's TE2, catching 21 balls for 225 yards and no TDs last year.

Fantasy impact: The hits keep coming for the Ravens. They're running out of tight ends and they may need more help than just Visante Shiancoe. If Dickson's prognosis is accurate, he should be ready to go for the opener. Although, he's failed to show the skills to get open and make big plays, so his tremendous opportunity is offset by his lack of playmaking. Fantasy owners that are looking for a tight end in the later rounds might want to take a shot on Jordan Cameron or Jared Cook instead of Dickson, regardless of this injury.
