Summary

Prior to last year, Greg Olsen hadn't missed a game since 2008. An unfortunate foot injury ended that streak in Week 2 last season. While he was able to come back in Week 12, he was not fully recovered and admittedly played through pain the rest of the season. Olsen declared himself completely healed in mid-April and is focused on making an impact to elevate the new and improved Panthers offense in 2018. Olsen is the only tight end in league history to have three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. Last year's injury spoiled his opportunity for a record fourth in a row. When healthy, Olsen is a Top 6 fantasy tight end with consistent tendencies to perform well on a weekly basis. Norv Turner has heavily utilized an athletic, pass-catching tight end in his offensive systems over the years. That is not expected to change during his time with Carolina. Olsen should be an integral piece of Turner's game plan in 2018 and is worthy of being a Top 5 tight end selection in redraft leagues. (May 19)

Panthers | Greg Olsen not a fan of drops (Sun Jul 8, 05:25 PM) - Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has been charged with a drop on only 4.06 percent of his targets from 2013-17 - the second-lowest mark among active tight ends (minimum 100 targets), according to Pro Football Focus.

Our View: Olsen is being forgotten because his return to form last year came in the playoffs. He's got a legitimate chance to finish as the TE3 this year, but will have to share with one of the best sets of passcatchers (including running back Christian McCaffrey) that he has played with during his time in Carolina.
