Olsen scored in four of his last six games. He will square off against a Saints defense that ranked close to average in fantasy points allowed to enemy tight ends during the last month, which is why he is the most likely Panthers receiver to hit pay dirt this week. Consider him a solid fantasy TE2 play.
Greg Olsen had the best season of his six-year NFL career in 2012, setting career highs in catches (69) and yardage (843) while pitching in five touchdowns and finishing as fantasy football’s sixth-ranked tight end. Olsen is an ideal target for fantasy owners who prefer to wait a bit before selecting a starter at tight end – he’s not going to singlehandedly win you many games, but Olsen is a fairly consistent option who also won’t saddle his fantasy owners with the dreaded doughnut.
