Last week's YPA was woeful, but with 13 targets through two weeks Clay has 13 targets and draws the Chiefs who have given up TDs to TEs in each game.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Olsen is a huge part of the Panthers passing game and the Steelers are allowing the 7th most points to fantasy tight ends.
Clay has a nice matchup against the Chiefs, who have allowed the fifth most points to fantasy tight ends this year.

Behind Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates, Olsen has put up the most consistent numbers across the first two weeks of the season. Now he gets a defense that gave up two scores to Owen Daniels. He will get another 75 yards and a score in week three.
Clay has drawn a tough matchup against a solid Chiefs defense. While he had seven catches last week, it is concerning that he only gained 31 yards on those catches. I'd look for other options for week three due to the matchup and lack of yardage.
