Michael Dickson named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

For the fifth time in the 2020 season, a Seattle Seahawk has been given NFC player of the week honors. For his performance against Washington, Michael Dickson received his second Special Teams Player of the Week award this season.

In the Seahawks’ 20-15 win over Washington, Dickson punted four times with a net average of 51 yards. All four of his punts were downed inside the 20-yard line, as he helped to hold off a comeback attempt by the NFC East side.

Dickson was previously named Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 2, another performance which saw all four punts downed inside the 20. The third-year punter has been superb for Seattle in 2020 and is a big part of a resurgent Seahawks special teams which ranks third in DVOA.

In addition to Dickson’s two Special Teams Player of the Week nods this season, Russell Wilson was given Offensive Player of the Week honors in weeks one and three, while Bobby Wagner was named Defensive Player of the Week in Week 8.

This is Dickson’s third time being named Player of the Week in his career, with two this season and one in Week 8 of 2018.
