Tough opening day match up but Olsen could be the main beneficiary with that tough Seahawks secondary matching up with the Panthers WR's.
Hate depending on touchdowns, and I'm not a Ponder believer
  
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.
Rudy can score in any game and this one has shootout written all over it, so this could certainly be one of them.
  
Tozzi Brothers
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.
At this point, you are going to get what you get. The tight ends from Olsen and below certainly won’t lead you to a fantasy championships by themselves, so look to pad their mediocre play with absolute studs to make up the difference. I consider Rudolph a bye-week replacement type option.

Laden with potential, but with two competent receivers now in town Rudolph may be even more inconsistent as long as Ponder is starting
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
 
Rudolph was a TE1 last year with low catch totals (53), but nine receiving touchdowns. He should be a TE1 against the Detroit Lions and their tight end defense that was ranked 23rd.
  
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 well
You know what they say about Big Hands. Big Redzone target. That is exactly what we have Rudolph heading into 2013. With the addition of Greg Jennnings, and Purple Jesus getting his 25 Touches each week, Rudolph losses his security just a little bit.
