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

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Matchup is absolutely killer but Davis doesn't see a ton of targets in conservative Niners offense.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

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

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

Davis wasn't a high overall TE for us, but this week vs DAL you want him in your lineup.

- 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

Dallas was the fourth worst fantasy tight end defense, so expect Vernon Davis to have a big game in the opener.

- 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.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

Any offensive player against the very weak Dallas defense is a good play unless the defense proves otherwise.
