Season Projections
Olsen gave fantasy owners and the Carolina Panthers organization a scare when he auditioned for a "Monday Night Football" analyst job back in April, but the Pro Bowl tight end quickly squashed all the retirement rumors by announcing his return for a 12th season. Usually one of the safest selections on the fantasy draft board, Olsen is coming off a rare injury-wrecked season. A broken foot that required surgery limited him to just seven regular-season contests played and career-worst production. Olsen's streak of 159 consecutive games played, streak of three straight seasons with at least 80 catches, 1,000 receiving yards and three scoring grabs, and streak of five straight years ranked sixth or better in tight end targets all went down the tubes. A now-healthy Olsen will operate as a do-it-all focal point of the Carolina passing attack in new offensive coordinator Norv Turner's scheme. While Olsen usually amasses top-10 reception and yardage numbers, Cam Newton's favorite target has never been a big scorer. A small dip in Olsen's overall production seems likely because receiving back extraordinaire Christian McCaffrey also catches a lot of passes underneath, and the team added dynamic rookie D.J. Moore to a receiver corps that includes possession guy Devin Funchess. Does the 33-year-old Olsen have one more elite season left in the tank? Don't bet against him. Olsen is being selected as a top-six fantasy tight end, so don't expect an injury-season discount on draft day.
