Expecting the Patriots to come out and score, despite a reasonably imposing matchup. As such, Miami will throw the ball often and Clay should benefit just as he did in '13. Lazor's offense should involve the TE.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Olsen is as steady as they come and QB Cam Newton is going to have to target him a ton with the lack of depth at tight end. Hopefully Cam Newton is healthy enough to target him, it is the reason Olsen is outside my Top 10.
The Patriots were just 19th against fantasy tight ends last year, but the Patriots should be improved this year and Clay is playing on an offense that is not exactly clicking in the passing game.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Olsen is Cam's best weapon so he should at least get targeted quite a bit.
Clay isn't sexy but he's pretty reliable. Should make it inside the top 15 in week 1.
  
Tom Schriner

Olsen had 106 yards and a touchdown last season against the Bucs but questions surround how ready Cam Newton will be after being out of practice so long.
Clay is what makes the Dolphins go on offense with a high number of targets and receptions. Expect a solid day out of the former Tulsa product.

Tight ends seem to fare well against Lovie's Cover-2 scheme.
