Week 8 Half PPR Rankings

In three games against the Bucs and Cardinals (who are the bottom-two teams against tight ends), Olsen has averaged 7.7 targets, 5.3 receptions, 79.0 yards, and 0.66 touchdowns per game, which amounts to 17.1 PPR points. In the three games against other opponents, he's averaged 5.0 targets, 2.0 receptions, 13.7 yards, and 0.0 touchdowns, which amounts to just 3.7 PPR points per game. So, when you see the 49ers on the schedule, who have allowed the third-fewest points to the tight end position, including a league-low 22.3 yards per game, what do you do? Bench him. He's nothing more than a middling TE2 this week.
