Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
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.Pettigrew is an upside pick due to the amount of throwing this offense does in Detroit. Last season Pettigrew yielded 589 yards and 3 TDs. The trend should be recognizable by now that should you strike out on a top-option at TE, you have some serious making up to do at your other positions to balance that point difference.  
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.   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Seattle will be focused on Steve Smith and Cam's running, so Olsen could be pretty active.   
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
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 wellPettigrew lost 10 lbs this offseason to be able to get downfield quicker. How about you first worry about catching Matt Stafford's rocket passes. Pettigrew dropped Redzone passes like it was his job, as well as not doing enough to clear double coverages from Megatron. With Tony Scheffler in the picture, Pettigrew has lost his once Top 10 Potential.

Tough opening day match up but Olsen could be the main beneficiary with that tough Seahawks secondary matching up with the Panthers WR's.
