Expert Note
View More Notes

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.

Greg Olsen totals 52 yards in Week 6

Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught 4-of-7 targets for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

After back-to-back games with fewer than five yards receiving, Olsen had a respectable 52 yards on four receptions. He also is in the midst of a three-game scoring drought after a big start to the year. Olsen has his bye in Week 7 but will get the 49ers coming off of it in Week 8.
