The Cowboys were just 19th against fantasy tight ends last year and Myers figures to be prominently featured in their passing game this year.

Tough opening day match up but Olsen could be the main beneficiary with that tough Seahawks secondary matching up with the Panthers WR's.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
With the Panthers' receivers in for a tough day, expect Cam to look to his TE in the middle frequently.
 
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
 
I may have him ranked a little too high for week 1, but he will be a rising TE by mid-season.

Every season Greg Olsen disappoints. He will have his solid weeks, but he will also let you down and get less than 50 Yards Receiving in a matchup you thought was automatic. Sooner than later this duo with Cam Newton should be dominate. Off of playaction in the wildcat, I don't see how defenses are able to stop it so well
Myers was great in Oakland because the QB situation was horrible in Oakland last season. With no star WR, and Darren McFadden having all the Safety/LB attention, it was all about dumping it to Brandon. While Eli Manning shows that he loves throwing to his TEs, you have to assume Hakeem Nicks is going to have a much bigger season than last, which will take away from the overall potential Myers has.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Seattle will be focused on Steve Smith and Cam's running, so Olsen could be pretty active.
Myers should see at least 4-5 balls in a potential shootout in big D.

Myers seems like a great fit for this offense with Manning throwing to him. I'm expecting big things from both this year.

Olsen finished 2012 with 843 yards and 5 TDs. His numbers look good from the outside, but if you factor in the fact that Olsen had games in 2012 when he did absolutely nothing – it gives a clearer picture. The later you can wait on guys like Olsen and the tiers below, the better.
Myers is pretty yawn-stapating now that he’s in NY. Eli isn’t typically complementary to week-to-week stat-padding for his TE’s. Myers should be seen as a bye-week replacement if you’re smart. If not … well … you’re funny like a clown!

Could become household name with Eli Manning
