Summary

Olsen made his way back from a foot injury after consecutive lost seasons and didn't embarrass himself at age-34 (TE13 in PPR scoring). When you consider he played with a compromised Cam Newton, erratic Kyle Allen, and way-too-green Will Grier as his quarterbacks, Olsen could very well have another TE1 season left in the tank before he inevitably retires to pursue a TV analyst job. He's stepping into an intriguing opportunity in Seattle. The combination of Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister accounted for six weekly top-10 tight end fantasy finishes last season, which was the same as Darren Waller and one more than Austin Hooper. Whether or not Olsen will get the lion's share of snaps likely depends on Dissly's recovery from a torn Achilles. Dissly has an outside chance of being fully rehabbed by the start of the season (he recovered quickly from a ruptured patellar tendon a year prior) but faces an uphill battle. Olsen is positioned for boring-but-adequate low-end TE1 numbers, at least until Dissly returns. (May 6)
