Chicago is 9th against fantasy tight ends, but Olsen is a huge part of the Panthers offense; he is still a TE1 this week.
The Panthers allow the eighth fewest points to tight ends, but Bennett is being targeted so much that he is a TE1 regardless of matchup.

Olsen faces off vs. former team (CHI) coming off his worst effort of the year (2/30) - I think Olsen gets back on track vs. CHI D allowing 9th-most YPG to TE position (but no TDs) - Olsen good for 6/61 yards, 0 TD
CAR hasn't been a get rich territory for fantasy tight ends, with no TD allowed and an average of just 57 YPG to the position. But Bennett is about the surest bet going among tight ends when it comes to TDs. Figure finds the end zone in addition to 43 receiving yards
