Summary

Olsen is the first tight end in NFL history to string together three 1,000+ yards-receiving seasons in a row - he's been a model of consistency in Carolina during that record-setting run, seeing 123 targets for 84/1,008/6 receiving during 2014; 124 for 77/1,104/7 during 2015 and 129 for 80/1,073/3 during 2016. He should remain an elite tight end for fantasy owners this year (he led the Panthers in receiving last year - no wide receiver went over 1,000 yards receiving last season). Olsen may once again wind up the most valuable fantasy pass receiver for Carolina again this year given the sorry state of the wide receivers' stable. He is very simpatico with Cam Newton - both players arrived in Carolina during 2011 and Olsen has always been a favorite target of Newton's dating back to Newton's rookie season. (May 21)
