Olsen had a big game as expected against the 49ers and should continue to see plenty of targets, but don't expect the same type of performance against a much more impressive Vikings' defense. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Olson dominated the 49ers D and he should be targeted a ton against the Vikings.It looks like Gronk is going to play this week, but he is probably on a snap count and is too boom / bust for my liking. Given the QB situation, the Patriots TEs are boom / bust TE2 plays.
FantasyPros Staff

Olsen was targeted seven times in Week 3. He continues to be a favorite target of quarterback Cam Newton and a high-end TE1. The quarterback situation in New England limits Bennett's upside. He may be asked to block more against the Texans. We view Bennett as more of a TE2 this week.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
The Vikings are a tough defense, but Olsen is too solid to drop lower than third overall for tight ends. If Rob Gronkowski is out again, bump Bennett up a little, but remember he has a third string quarterback throwing to him.
