Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's been really good over the last two weeks, hauling in 13-of-15 targets for 155 yards, though he hasn't scored outside of the Cardinals game back in Week 3. That seems to be a theme with non-McCaffrey Panthers skill-position players. The Saints have not been a matchup to target with tight ends over the last two years, as they allowed the eighth-fewest points to them in 2018 and the 10th-fewest in 2019. We did see a glitch in the matrix last week, however, as Cameron Brate racked-up 10 catches for 73 yards against them. Is this a product of them missing Marshon Lattimore? Does it have a butterfly effect on everyone else? The Panthers are going to struggle to move the ball on the ground in New Orleans, so when you combine that with his 21 targets over the last three weeks, it's tough to say he doesn't belong in the low-end TE1 conversation, though he has a lower ceiling than most in that range. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Olsen has been used more over the past few weeks, but he still has only found the end zone against the Cardinals this season, which anyone can do. Just look at OJ Howard. The Panthers will likely have to pass a lot, which helps Olsen's outlook, but his name is still the most valuable thing about him. He's a fringe TE1 option. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 9th against fantasy tight ends, Olsen is a boom / bust TE1 option on a struggling offense in a tough matchup.
