Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Olsen has been heavily involved in the Carolina passing game lately; he averaged nine targets per game during the last month. The Jets have yielded the fourth-fewest fantasy points to enemy tight ends since Week 11, but that statistic is likely a mirage. The only fantasy-relevant tight end that Gang Green faced during that stretch was Charles Clay (Dolphins), who gouged them for seven catches and 80 yards. Keep Olsen in your starting lineup as a fantasy TE1.
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.
