Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Olsen had a bit of a letdown game against the Bucs, as the entire Panthers offense struggled. But his six targets showed that he's back to being one of Cam Newton's main weapons, and that's all that really matters for fantasy purposes. The Falcons are tough on opposing tight ends, but with a guaranteed target volume, Olsen makes an excellent play on Sunday.Rudolph does not have an injury designation for this week's game against the Bears, which is a welcome sign after he was very limited the last few games. The Bears are decent against opposing tight ends, but Rudolph should see a full workload as the Vikings look to lock up a bye. He makes an excellent play in Week 17.

Olsen had only 27 yards receiving last week, but the Falcons are only 13th against fantasy tight ends and he led the team in targets last week. Olsen is a TE1 for Week 17.
