Dickey (5-5) allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out six batters through seven scoreless innings during Monday's win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

While this was easily Dickey's best outing of the year, the Giants entered with a league-worst .291 wOBA and had scored the third-fewest runs in the majors. Dickey sports a disappointing 4.91 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 5.6 K/9 for the campaign and remains a risky option in all fantasy settings going forward. He projects to face the Brewers at SunTrust Park in his next start.

Dickey (4-5) allowed eight runs on eight hits and no walks across five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey allowed three runs in the first inning, including a pair of solo home runs, but he settled down and cruised through the next four frames. Trouble reared its ugly head again in the sixth, however, and he was removed with no outs after allowing three more runs on four hits and a hit batsman. This shellacking came on the heels of Dickey's best start of the season, but he has largely been ineffective in 2017 and now owns a 5.35 ERA ahead of Monday's start against the Giants.

Dickey (4-5) allowed one run on three hits over seven innings, striking out eight and walking none, Thursday against the Phillies in the Braves' 3-1 win.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey had allowed three or more runs in each of his last six outings, so this was certainly an anamoly for him this season; a year in which he has produced a 4-4 record and 4.73 ERA. The former NL Cy Young Award winner clearly is not what he used to be, but as Thursday proved, he is certainly capable of churning out an impressive performance - even if it's against the lowly Phillies.

Dickey allowed five runs -- four earned -- on five hits and five walks while striking out just two batters through 5.1 innings during Saturday's win over Cincinnati. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran knuckleballer has allowed at least three runs in each of his past seven starts for a 6.05 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and a measly 3.5 K/9. Those numbers don't move the fantasy needle in any setting, and until Dickey shows the ability to limit opponents or pad the strikeouts column, he's probably best faded as a streaming or daily contest option. He projects to face the Phillies at home in his next start.

Dickey (3-4) coughed up seven runs (six earned) on six hits and five walks over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Giants. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The five walks were a season high for Dickey, but the knuckleballer has issued multiple free passes in eight straight starts, saddling him with a 4.4 BB/9 and 1.58 WHIP. The 42-year-old's 4.65 ERA on the season looks bad, but he may actually have been lucky so far based on his 6.23 FIP. He'll try to turn things around Saturday in Cincinnati.

Dickey allowed three runs on 11 hits over six innings against the visiting Pirates on Tuesday. He struck out two, walked three and hit a batter.

EDGE Analysis

This 15-baserunner outing incredibly qualifies as a quality start, robbing that designation of all meaning in the process. Dickey has been a pain to own in fantasy, as his strikeout rate has dropped to its lowest point since 2008 and his walk rate is at its highest point since 2009; despite that, he's outpitched his peripherals so far, but that's not going to last if he keeps packing the bases with runners.

Dickey's next scheduled start will be Tuesday against Pittsburgh instead of Wednesday,Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves opted to have Dickey and Julio Teheran switch spots in their starting rotation, so Dickey will take the mound one day earlier than planned. Dickey's ERA and WHIP are both high and sitting at 4.13 and 1.46, respectively. He also doesn't offer much in terms of strikeouts, as he owns a bleak 4.88 K/9.

Dickey allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks Friday in a win over the Nationals. He struck out four and received a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

It was a subpar effort for the knuckleballer, who couldn't get out of the sixth inning in this contest while throwing 117 pitches. He's not much of a fantasy asset at this point, with an unimpressive 49 hits allowed in 48 innings to go along with a 26:21 K:BB. He'll toe the rubber again on Wednesday at home against Pittsburgh.

Dickey (3-3) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out just a single batter over seven innings during Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

A pinch-hit, three-run home run from Tyler Moore in the bottom of the seventh inning was the only damage Dickey allowed. While the veteran has hardly moved the fantasy needle this season with a 4.22 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 4.6 K/9, he's been consistent. Dickey has allowed between two and four runs in each of his seven starts. However, his current .246 BABIP and 6.39 FIP suggest there are probably rougher times ahead. Dickey lines up for a daunting home matchup against the Nationals in his next start.

Dickey allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks across six innings en route to a no-decision Sunday against the Cardinals. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Dickey allowed a solo homer in the first inning and yielded three more runs in the third as five men reached base. He settled down thereafter and allowed just three more baserunners through six before the offense got him off the hook for the loss. Dickey through just 59 percent of his pitches for strikes, but he induced 11 groundouts to help mitigate the damage. Though he is no more than a middling fantasy option in most formats at this point, Dickey has delivered respectable results more often than not this season and will look to do so next Sunday against the Marlins.
