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.
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.
