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 | Corey Brown expanding his game (Sat Jun 27, 09:42 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown has developed into more than just a deep threat, according to TE Greg Olsen. 'Last year at this time, Corey was a guy where we said, 'Wow, he's fast.' This year he is a receiver,' Olsen said. 'The guy can play. He's not just a one-trick pony, a guy who is just going to run deep. He has a lot of natural instinct to him. He has a good feel.'

Our View: The artist formerly known as Philly Brown showed some promise as a receiver in 2014 (36 targets for 21/296/2 receiving). The Panthers won't have a world-class passing attack, but Brown will be in the mix as a backup option.
