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)
