Olsen is Cam's best weapon so he should at least get targeted quite a bit.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Rams have the LBs to mess with Rudy but he also can be a red-zone nightmare. A bit of a toss up to start week 1.

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

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

 
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.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

 
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.

Norv Turnerís offense loves throwing to tight ends ... and Rudolph is their main tight end. He'll have a breakout week one in St. Louis.
