Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
With Cam Newton (foot) sidelined, the 34-year-old Olsen's week-to-week production has lacked consistency because he's only the Panthers' fourth-most targeted pass catcher with Kyle Allen under center. Olsen also has found the end zone just twice on the season, and both touchdowns came back in Week 2. He usually has nice fantasy outings in the softest of matchups, but the New Orleans Saints defense has allowed the 10th fewest fantasy points and just two scoring grabs to the tight end position. While Olsen is a worthwhile play, don't expect his scoring drought to end.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 42 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Putting his right foot forward has been a problem for Olsen. Three separate injuries to that extremity during the last two years forced him to miss a combined 16 games. This past season, Olsen, despite looking slower and never fully healthy, still squeezed out finishes of fantasy TE22/non-PPR and fantasy TE25/PPR on the strength of his scoring. The 34-year-old Olsen underwent off-season foot surgery and will return for his 13th season. One of the most complete players at the position, the sure-handed Olsen was riding a streak of three straight seasons with at least 80 catches, 1,000 receiving yards and three touchdown catches as Cam Newton's security blanket before the two injury-wrecked campaigns. Given Olsen's age and the tricky nature of foot injuries, he can still be effective with slightly diminished speed and burst, but don't expect Olsen to return to his pre-injury form. Olsen's fragile right foot obviously is a gigantic worry. His starting job looks safe, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the Panthers dialed back Olsen's workload a bit with promising second-year guy Ian Thomas. He amassed at least 75 yards or scored in three of four season-ending contests with Olsen out of the lineup.

Receiving: 23 Receptions, 265 Yards, 2 TD.
