Olsen failed to come down with his lone target on Sunday against the Vikings, and left the game at one point because of his foot injury. At this point, it's nearly impossible to have any faith that Olsen will deliver quality numbers, especially this weekend against a Packers team that allows the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Olsen still has as much potential as anyone, so he makes a high-risk, high-reward play in Week 15, but there are obviously safer options available.Davis found the end zone last weekend against the Chargers, but caught just two passes, and now has just seven receptions over his previous four games. With injuries to the offensive line, he's been needed to block more, and just has not been able to become a consistent option in the passing game. Arizona is mediocre against opposing tight ends, so Davis is still an option in deep leagues, but it would be hard to trust him at this point in the season.

 It was good to see Davis get back into the end zone last week, as he'd been a major letdown the previous two weeks. Not that he's totally in the clear, because he's still failed to record more than three catches since Week 10. The Cardinals have been a defense you can play tight ends against if you know they're going to get targets. On the year, there have been just five tight ends who've seen more than five targets against them, and they averaged 6.2 receptions, 57.0 yards, and 0.8 touchdowns. Davis is on the TE1 radar, as there aren't many safe plays at the position anymore, so at least we know what he's capable when he gets the targets.

He had to hobble off the field in Week 14 and get re-taped. I have no interest in rostering Olsen at this point, unfortunately.

The Packers are 2nd against fantasy tight ends, Olsen is probably only a TE2 this week.
