Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Based on where Olsen's targets took place last year, he scored 20.5 fewer fantasy points than the average tight end would've, which was the worst mark in football, just ahead of Trey Burton. He's now 35 years old and wants to go to the booth soon enough. He was the Seahawks insurance to Will Dissly. Once they know Dissly is healthy, it's back to fantasy irrelevance for Olsen. If Dissly isn't ready for the start of the year, Olsen could have some streaming appeal.One of the more talented tight ends in the league, but also someone who is going to play second fiddle to Rob Gronkowski. The Bucs have said they'll be running a lot more 2TE sets, but it remains to be seen. With the other receiving options they have ahead of Howard, it's tough to see a path to consistent production. If Gronkowski were to miss time, Howard would jump into the TE1 conversation.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Olsen might have enough in the tank for one final season in the NFL, but it's unlikely to amount to much from a fantasy perspective. Even if Olsen sees 80-plus targets, he lacks the athleticism now to turn them into anything of value for fantasy football. He'll be a fringe TE2/TE3 this season.Howard's now playing second-fiddle to Gronkowski in Tampa Bay, but they both should still be on the field quite a bit. Howard's unlikely to be anything more than a streaming candidate in potential shootouts at the tight end position though with the limited opportunity.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Despite getting up there in age, Olsen showed he still had some gas left in the tank in 2019, finishing as the 13th-ranked tight end in 1/2 PPR formats despite playing just 14 games and scoring just two touchdowns. Seattle isn't a bad place for tight ends, but with Will Dissly expected back and Jacob Hollister still on the roster, it's unlikely that Olsen will see his usual number of targets. He's worth drafting in leagues that give bonus points to tight ends but he's outside the TE1 range in standard-sized leagues.There are few players who have seen such a disconnect between their perceived talent and their fantasy value as Howard. Bruce Arians' system has never been friendly to tight ends, and even if it were, Howard now has to contend with Rob Gronkowski and not just Cameron Brate at the position. Howard has the skill to be an impact tight end, but absent an injury to Gronkowski, there's just no path for him this year. Hold onto him in dynasty formats, but ignore him for redraft purposes.
