Fantasy Analysis
Week 3 Projections
Even though the Minnesota Vikings defense ranks a solid 11th in fantasy points allowed to the tight end position, Olsen remains a must-start. He currently leads all tight ends in catches (tie) and receiving yards.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 64 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Olsen has been a monster since leaving Chicago and joining the Panthers. His three-year average with Carolina puts him just shy of 1,000 yards and 7 touchdowns a year. He is a no-brainer selection, especially if you're able to get him outside the top three ranked tight ends. He has no injury concerns, an elite quarterback and the Panthers' No. 1 wide receiver, Kelvin Benjamin, is returning from injury. But make no mistake about it, despite the return of Benjamin, Olsen is quarterback Cam Newton's go-to guy. Benjamin fattened his stats in 2014 with plenty of garbage-time production, so don't view him as a threat to steal any of Olsen's targets. Instead, view Benjamin, and emerging second-year wide receiver Devin Funchessas, as threats that defenses will have to game plan for leaving Olsen in more favorable coverage.

Receiving: 68 Receptions, 961 Yards, 5 TD.
