#3 vs. SEA

Greg Olsen caught all 8 of his targets in Week 8, and finished with 105 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact: Olsen outscored Kelvin Benjamin in PPR formats, but Kelvin came away with a score. Olsen remains a weekly TE1. His Week 8 opponent Seattle has been lenient against tight ends this year.

Greg Olsen caught 6 passes for 62 yards and a TD in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Olsen has been a late round TE treasure this season. He has always been a solid player, but he is showing dependability in scoring this season. He is clearly not 100% though. He was hobbled and not running with his usual speed or agility. Look for Olsen to miss practice time this week, but expect him to suit up against Green Bay.

Greg Olsen had been listed as questionable this week with an ankle injury, but will play Week 6. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Olsen is a true TE1 going up against a defense that struggles to cover the position, he is a must-start.

Fantasy Impact: Olsen received 2 less targets than Kelvin Benjamin, but managed to make 3 more catches than him. Olsen's career high in TD's for a season is 8, and he already has 4 TD's through 5 weeks this year. This is shaping up to be a career year for Olsen. He is a TE1 in Week 6 against the Bengals.

Greg Olsen faces the Bears in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears have been stingy against the TE position this season. They've kept all opposing tight ends out of the endzone. However, Olsen will be the best TE they've faced (Vernon Davis has been banged up), and the Bears are the team that traded Olsen away (noteworthy if you subscribe to revenge factor). Olsen is tied for the Panthers lead in catches, and is still a TE1 this week.

Greg Olsen caught 2-of-5 targets for 30 yards in the a Week 4 loss to Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact: Newton and Olsen disappointed owners in Week 4. The Panthers meet the Bears, Olsen's former team, in Week 5. The Bears' secondary is depleted and will be coming off a week in which they allowed 38 points to the Packers. Consider Olsen's Week 4 performance a fluke.

Greg Olsen had a solid game against PIttsburgh, catching 5 passes for 69 yards and 1 TD.

Fantasy Impact: The fantasy world of tight ends is a complete disaster at the moment. If you were an owner that waited on TE and ended up with Olsen, you are thanking the fantasy gods right now. He has been great through 3 weeks, including a game with Derek Anderson. The numbers will likely dip a little, but Olsen should be able to maintain his current value.

Greg Olsen hauls in 6-of-8 targets for 72 yards Week 2 against the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Olsen has been targeted 19 times in two games and looks to be Cam Newton's go-to target. He didn't find the endzone this week, but could very well go off against a beatable Steelers defense on Sunday Night Football. He remains a TE 1.

By Max Enos, Panthers Correspondent, Tue, Sep 9th 2:36am EDT

Olsen was targeted 11 times against Tampa, catching 8 balls for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: While Olsen won't always find the endzone like he did Sunday, he should consistently see a high volume of targets. Derek Anderson started Sunday, and Cam Newton will likely play week 2. Olsen is one of Cam's only targets remaining from last year, so look for the the Panthers to continue to go his way.

Fantasy Impact: These occurrences are minor and Olsen is expected to play in Sunday's pre-season game versus the Chiefs. With Cam Newton also expected to start, this will be the first comprehensive preview as to how the new 2014 offense will work together.

Fantasy Sports LR | Oct 23rd
After watching Carolina's offense struggle early while looking elsewhere last week, expect Olsen to be a huge part of the plan vs Sea (who have allowed a league high 8 TDs to TEs).
Fantasy Football Maniax | Oct 22nd
Olsen has a fantastic matchup against a Seahawks D that allows the 3rd most points to fantasy tight ends.
