Greg Olsen hopes to return for 2019 season

Greg Olsen told reporters that he hopes to continue playing in 2019. His season was ended after he aggravated his foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Olsen underwent surgery and the forecast must have been positive given these comments. While he's certainly an injury risk if he's back in 2019, he also did continue to be a fantasy-relevant TE this year with a stretch where he scored in four of five games.

Greg Olsen placed on season-ending IR

The Panthers have placed Greg Olsen on season-ending IR after he ruptured the plantar fascia on his right foot.

Fantasy Impact

Olsen was just getting back from another foot injury, and given the history of the ailment it's not clear if he'll be back in 2019 and beyond. For the remainder of the season, Ian Thomas will continue to be the team's primary TE and could be their TE of the future, a role that Olsen thrived in.

Greg Olsen expected to miss the rest of the season

After exiting Sunday's game early with a foot injury, Greg Olsen told reporters after the game that he ruptured the plantar fascia on his right foot and believes his season is over.

Fantasy Impact

Olsen has been plagued by injuries the last couple of seasons and his 2018 campaign appears to be over now. Ian Thomas caught all five of his targets and is worth a pickup with the tight end position lacking many quality options.

Greg Olsen out for rest of Week 13

The official Twitter account of the Carolina Panthers is reporting TE Greg Olsen (foot) is ruled out for the remainder of Week 13 with a foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Olsen injured his foot early in the first half of Sunday's tilt with Tampa Bay. The injury didn't look very good initially and after ultimately being carted into the locker room, he was quickly ruled out. Once again rookie Ian Thomas will take over as the TE1 for Carolina.

Greg Olsen invisible in Week 12 loss

Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught both of his targets for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

While Olsen was on a nice run, this was his second game in which he was held to two catches and fewer than 11 yards. And while he scored last week to make up for his dismal outing, he was held out of the end zone in Sunday's loss, which destroyed his value for his fantasy owners. Olsen will look to get back on track in a plus Week 13 matchup with Tampa Bay.
