Behind Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates, Olsen has put up the most consistent numbers across the first two weeks of the season. Now he gets a defense that gave up two scores to Owen Daniels. He will get another 75 yards and a score in week three.
Davis' MRI showed a deep bruise and no structural damage to his left ankle. So that is the good news. He has not practiced yet this week and is very questionable for Sunday's game. If he's out, Derek Carrier is the main option for the 49ers.

If he's playing, this is a fantastic matchup.

Olsen is a huge part of the Panthers passing game and the Steelers are allowing the 7th most points to fantasy tight ends.
