Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Tampa Bay is giving up 8.5 adjusted fantasy points per game above the NFL average to the TE so far this year. You can feel good about starting Greg Olsen this week. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Olsen may have just 5 yards over the past two weeks but he draws the second easiest matchup for tight ends this week when the Panthers travel to Tampa Bay. This unit has been shredded by the position all season and it likely won't end this week. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Olsen has just five yards over the past two weeks, which doesn't bring much optimism. However, he faces the defense he put up over 100 yards against in Week 2. He's TE1 this week, but expect a performance in between Week 2 and his past couple games.With Teddy Bridgewater continuing to improve his aDOT, it helps out Cook's production a lot. This proved to be true last week, with Cook finding his first touchdown of the season. This doesn't mean Cook is a weekly start going forward, but has has TE1 upside in a game where the spread favors Jacksonville, meaning the Saints will need to pass.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Buccaneers are 31st against fantasy tight ends, Olsen should be a great TE1 option this week.The Jaguars are 12th against fantasy tight ends, Cook is a low-upside TE2 play on the road this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was only a matter of time before the 34-year-old Olsen slowed down in production, as anyone who watched the games could see, he's not moving very well. He's totaled five yards over the last two weeks combined, which makes him hard to trust, though if there's one team who should make you consider him, it's the Bucs. We continually saw Olsen wide open over the middle of the field the last time these two teams played, as he tallied 6/110/0 in what was likely the final 100-yard game of his career. The Bucs have played five games and have allowed five tight ends to finish as top-10 performers. Seriously, every starting tight end has scored at least 13.4 PPR points against them, including Jared Cook last week. This is similar to what we saw last year when they allowed 12 tight ends to finish as top-15 performers. He's not sexy to play but he should at the very least offer a stable floor in this game as a low-end TE1.We talked about Cook being a solid streaming option last week, so it's good to see him provide his first fantasy relevant game of the year. That was the best matchup a tight end can ask for outside of the Cardinals, so don't get your hopes up. The Jaguars haven't really been a team to target with tight ends. Over their last 21 games, they've allowed just five tight ends to record more than 36 yards. Through five games, the 54.5 percent completion-rate they're allowing to tight ends ranks as the lowest mark in the league. Cook has still yet to top 41 yards in a game this year, so you're essentially looking for a touchdown in order for him to be streamable. The Jaguars have allowed one tight end touchdown on 33 targets this year, so the odds aren't in his favor. He's nothing more than a middling TE2 who doesn't present a very high floor, something streamers need to covet.
