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.
Pitta is going to have TE1 appeal every game he plays this year. He is healthy and the Ravens plan to move him all over their offensive formation.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
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.
A now fully healthy Pitta is a top 10 play each week as Joe Flacco's favorite target.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Olsen is Cam's best weapon so he should at least get targeted quite a bit.
Kubiak loves to feed his tight ends so Pitta could be in for a solid 2014 debut.

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