Olsen doesn't have the upside of some of these other tight ends, but his consistency makes him a safe pick, but it will also probably push his ADP up above some guys who have higher upside. I usually draft a bit riskier at tight end, hoping to hit on a Jordan Reed or Tyler Eifert, but the safety of Olsen is appealing 
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Greg Olsen is currently dealing with back spasms, and is being held out of the latest pre-season game. I don't think that there is a huge concern at this point and I am not dropping him in my TE rankings. He is currently the #3 TE being drafted behind Gronk and Reed. Target him in round 4 of your fantasy football league drafts.

5th Down Fantasy
The safest bet out of the ''Gronk'' tier considering health and consistency.

Olsen is one of the safest picks at TE 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
KB returning should cut into his high end production a bit but he still is a beast that will see the ball a ton.

Last season, Kelvin Benjamin was injured so Olsen was Cam Newton's only quality target. Still, Olsen finished 6th amongst tight ends in fantasy points per game. At 31-years-old, I'm not buying the idea that he jumps forward from that performance and you shouldn't either. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Olsen has finished in the Top-6 each of the last four years and he should be great again in 2016 as he looks to build on a 77 reception, 1,104 yard and seven touchdown season.
