James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Easy to say he will get 800 yards and 5 TDs.
Pitta offers TD upside and could be near double digit TDs in 2014.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Olsen is as safe of a fantasy tight end as you can find, he is not going to put up monster numbers, but he has finished sixth and eighth among fantasy tight ends the last two seasons. The Panthers have the worst receiving core in the NFL, so Olsen should see plenty of targets.
Pitta should return to low TE1 to high TE2 value if he can play a full 16 games and the Ravens can improve the offensive line, so that their offense can move the ball more efficiently.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Newton's most reliable set of hands now that Smith is gone.
Don't expect the Owen Daniels signing to hurt Pitta's production.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Cam Newton's favorite target and only proven target (since Steve Smith is now gone). He has been a consistent threat in his last two seasons in Carolina, about 800 yards and 5-6 scores. He will not wow you week-in and week-out, but he will continue to be a prime member of your starting lineup.
Pitta suffered a setback in his development with an off-season injury that limited him to four games last season. Quarterback Joe Flacco likes to target Pitta on key passing downs and in the red zone. That connection, along with a tight end friendly offense under Gary Kubiak, will contribute to a top ten fantasy season.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Olsenís 2012 and 2013 seasons mimic themselves in nearly every category and differ by only 4 Receptions, 1 TD and 27 Receiving Yards. The consistency will continue forward in 2014 and we feel that Olsenís numbers will only increase in every category as the Carolina Options are limited for Cam Newton. Olsen rarely has a monster performance that wins games for Fantasy Owners, however he also doesnít produce goose-eggs that lose games either. For example, Olsen didnít notch a single game last season over 90 Receiving Yards. Olsen was Targeted 111 times last year and yielded 73 Receptions with a Reception Rate of 65%. In 2012, Olsen saw almost identical numbers as he snatched 69 Receptions on 104 Targets with a 66% Reception Rate. We expect Olsenís Targets to jump to the 120 range. With a consistent Reception Rate, look for Olsen to grab 79-80 Receptions in 2014. Olsen has averaged 12.21 YPC in 2012 and 11.17 YPC in 2013. We expect Olsen to jump to nearly 925 Receiving Yards in 2014 with an uptick in TD Numbers as well. He is a consistent option that has the ability to finish higher than his current Legion Report Ranking.
Returning from a dislocated hip injury, Pitta is now 100% healthy in Gary Kubiakís TE Friendly Offense. The past 5 season under Gary Kubiak, Tight Ends for the Houston Texans combined to average 86 catches, 1020 receiving yards and 7 TDís per season. With this, they were also fighting for Targets with the commanding Andre Johnson as well as RBís Steve Slaton and Arian Foster (RBís who catch a lot of balls, similarly to Ray Rice.) Pitta is better than the Tight Ends Kubiak worked with in Houston and Torrey Smith is nowhere near as commanding for Targets as Andre Johnson is. Kubiak envisions Pitta to have a versatile role that will move Pitta all around the field in their new offense. ďI have done a lot of different things in this offense already,Ē Pitta told the Baltimore Sun. Pitta will be highly utilized in this Ravens Offense and has the potential to lead this team in receptions in 2014. Pitta possesses TE1 value, especially in PPR Leagues.
  
Huseyin Aksu
Fantasy Couch
a very solid TE this season
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Seems destined to be a critical component in WR-deprived offense.
Joe Flacco loves him. He'll be a key cog in Ravens' passing game.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's all Cam Newton has, so you'd think he'd have a great shot at posting career numbers.
Kubiak produces quality TE numbers and he's a very reliable pass catcher. He should be borderline top-10, if not much higher.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Olsen isn't flashy, but he's one of Cam Newton's favorite targets and his numbers continue to improve.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Greg Olsen may very well be Cam Newtonís top target this season with the Panthers receiver corps in shambles aside from rookie Kelvin Benjamin.
Dennis Pitta has a friend in Joe Flacco
