Summary

Greg Olsen enjoyed a stellar 2014 season with a new career-high 123 targets translating to 84/1,008/6 receiving (Olsen caught more passes than anyone else on the team last year, again), and wound up fourth among all fantasy tight ends last year. He set a then-career-high 111 targets for 73/816/6 receiving during 2013 - Olsen is a linchpin of the Panthers' passing attack and Cam Newton's most trusted receiver. Since Newton arrived in Carolina, Olsen has seen over 100 targets for three straight seasons (he had 104 targets for 69/843/5 receiving during 2012) and has been a top-ten tight end all three of those years. Again, Olsen caught more passes than any other Panther during 2014 AND 2013. (May 15)

Panthers | Greg Olsen to see more targets (Wed Aug 19, 10:19 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Greg Olsen is expected to be the No. 1 target for QB Cam Newton following the loss of WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) to a season-ending anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Our View: Olsen has to be the number one target for Newton now that Kelvin Benjamin is out for the year. Right now, Olsen's ADP doesn't truly reflect his status as the team's top target. Olsen is going off the board at TE4 (5.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.
