Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Matchup is absolutely killer but Davis doesn't see a ton of targets in conservative Niners offense.
Olsen is Cam's best weapon so he should at least get targeted quite a bit.

Davis wasn't a high overall TE for us, but this week vs DAL you want him in your lineup.
Tight ends seem to fare well against Lovie's Cover-2 scheme.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Dallas was the fourth worst fantasy tight end defense, so expect Vernon Davis to have a big game in the opener.
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.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Any offensive player against the very weak Dallas defense is a good play unless the defense proves otherwise.
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.
