Ed Dickson should see more snaps than Dallas Clark
Along with tackle Bryant McKinnie, tight end Ed Dickson has been the main scapegoat for many of the Ravens’ offensive struggles through the first quarter of the season. Since the Ravens lost starting tight end Dennis Pitta to a fractured hip, it took Dickson five games to finally show up and contribute in a positive way on offense. Though the first five games, Dickson and fellow tight end Dallas Clark have essentially split snaps. Dickson has played 206 snaps total, while Clark has 202.
Should Dickson see more snaps than Clark?
BUY: I’m buying purely based on the fact that Dickson has more motivation to play well than Clark. While Clark’s playing days are limited due to age, Dickson’s could only be limited by his effort. In the locker room, Dickson seems confident due to strong practices he’s put together and unlike last week where his head coach called him out, he actually drew praise from the Ravens coaching staff this week.
Last week, Dickson saw a season-high with 52 snaps as opposed to Clark’s 36. I think the trend should continue, while keeping Dickson on a very short leash.
