One addict, I fancy, could show this (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

dedication

Here is my best explanation:

'could show this' is the definition.

The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'one addict i fancy' is the subsidiary indication.

'fancy' indicates anagramming the letters.

'one'+'addict'+'i'='oneaddicti'

'oneaddicti' anagrammed gives 'dedication'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for dedication that I've seen before include "Commitment; inscription", "with which author often starts work", "tribute", "commitment" and "Devotion (to a task)".)
