Fantasy Analysis
Week 14 Projections
The slumping Olsen has failed to eclipse the 45-yard mark or score in four straight outings that were all considered largely plus matchups. He draws yet another favorable matchup against a San Diego Chargers defense ranks 19th in fantasy points allowed to the tight end position. Will Olsen finally snap out of his production slump? Nobody knows for sure, and that's the problem for fantasy owners. While Olsen is always a threat to go off, don't be afraid to sit him and use a safer option - if you have one - in your playoff lineup.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 48 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: 60 Receptions, 750 Yards, 6 TD.
