Player Notes
Nov 17 5:13pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught five passes for 57 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11. He was targeted five times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen has been playing well recently with at least 50 yards in three of the last five games. He should receive a decent amount of targets next week and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end.

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had his best game of the season against the Packers last Sunday, finishing with eight receptions (10 targets) for 98 yards. While this was a step in the right direction for the veteran, who had nine total catches in his previous three outings before Week 10, he isn't a reliable week-to-week option at the moment. Nonetheless, if you are desperate for a streaming option in deeper formats in Week 11, Olsen is your guy against a middle-of-the-pack Falcons Defense.

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was productive during the loss to the Packers on Sunday, finishing with eight catches for 98 yards. His receptions total and targets (10) were both his highest of the season, with the veteran catching one less pass in this one than in his previous three outings combined. He still can't be trusted from a fantasy standpoint, but with a few more performances like this, he may become a playable option once again as fantasy leagues head towards the playoffs.

Nov 10 11:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught eight of his 10 targets for 98 yards in a 24-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 10.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen had season highs in both catches and targets, recording his most receiving yards since Week 2. It has been a disappointing year for Olsen overall, but he still has potential as a streaming option.

From TheHuddle

Nov 10 12:03am ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen is being asked to block more to help protect QB Kyle Allen, according to David Newton of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen's numbers have tailed off after a solid start, and with Allen expected to be under center the rest of the way, fantasy owners will have to accept TE2 production as the norm.

From TheHuddle

Nov 3 9:53pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen posted three receptions for 40 yards on five targets in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Spin: The good news is that Olsen's foot has remained intact after a couple of season's worth of injury woes. The bad news is he has resembled more of a TE2 most games than a must-start fantasy option. The Panthers travel to meet the Packers in Week 10.

From TheHuddle

Nov 3 7:10pm ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had three catches for 40 yards during the win over the Titans on Sunday. While it was encouraging that Olsen received five targets from Kyle Allen, the veteran continues to disappoint, compiling a subpar 11 receptions for 110 yards over his last five outings. For those hoping for a bounce-back season in 2019, don't hold your breath, with Olsen's inefficient play likely to continue against the Packers in Week 10.

From RotoBaller

Nov 2 4:20am ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen hasn't done much this season, with that trend expected to continue against Tennessee on Sunday. Since his two-touchdown performance against the Cardinals in Week 3, the 34-year-old has been virtually non-existent by compiling just eight receptions for 70 yards over the last three games. The Titans Defense isn't great by any means, but for those hoping for an efficient performance from Olsen in Week 9 will likely be disappointed. Keep him benched in all formats unless you have no other options.

Oct 28 3:03am ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught both of his targets for 13 yards in Week 8 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen's fast start to the season is more of a distant memory at this point, as he has been held to two catches and 13 yards or fewer in three of his last four games. It is quite possible he needs Cam Newton to return to form as much as anyone in this offense, and there's a decent chance that will happen in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans. Owners should consider Olsen a low-end TE1 option if Newton starts in that one.

From TheHuddle

Oct 27 9:40pm ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen struggled in the Panthers loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon. The veteran tight end has been shaky on a week-to-week basis this season, and Week 8 was a down week for Olsen owners. The long-time Panther only hauled in two catches for 13 yards, providing minimal value to owners. Olsen's struggles could be a product of quarterback Kyle Allen having an awful game against a stout 49ers Defense, which will hopefully get fixed before next week's matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

Oct 25 3:53pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (finger) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen has been a solid option in the passing game even with Kyle Allen as the starting quarterback. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 24 3:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (finger) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen bounced back in Week 6 after two disappointing games and finished with 52 yards. He has been targeted at least seven times in four of the six games this season and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues this week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 23 3:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (finger) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen has been an inconsistent performer this season but did post four catches and 52 yards in his last game. He will be facing a tough San Francisco 49ers defense in Week 8 and may only be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 13 2:30pm ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was targeted seven times against the Buccaneers on Sunday and finished with four catches for 52 yards. After failing to record a catch against the Jaguars in Week 5 while recording just two in Week 4, the veteran's performance in London was a slight improvement. Nonetheless, Olsen has been a disappointment from a fantasy perspective and should only be expected to produce efficient performances on sporadic occasions throughout the remainder of the season regardless of who is under center for the Panthers.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 1:43pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught four passes for 52 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Olsen bounced back after two disappointing performances and received at least seven targets for the fourth time in six games. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues after the bye week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 11:10am ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had one of his best performances of the season against Tampa Bay in Week 2, finishing with six receptions (nine targets) for 110 yards. With the Buccaneers Defense doing little to stop the pass in 2019, the ceiling is high for the veteran in the rematch between the two clubs, with the 34-year-old likely getting extra attention from quarterback Kyle Allen if Christian McCaffrey (back) is unable to play in London. Look to Olsen in Week 6 as a good option for the fantasy managers who are dealing with injuries or may require an adequate bye-week replacement.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 10:03pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen did not have a catch in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars on two targets.

Fantasy Spin: Ick. After a couple of tremendous games which looked like Olsen was back as a fantasy must-start option, he had two catches, five yards and six targets over the past two games.

From TheHuddle

Oct 6 6:30pm ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen came away empty-handed against the Jaguars on Sunday. After racking up 185 yards and two touchdowns in Weeks 2 and 3, the veteran has been quiet over the last two games, accumulating just two receptions (six targets) for a miserable five yards. He will look to get it together against the Buccaneers in Week 6, with the 36-year-old having his best performance of the season against Tampa earlier in the year.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 6:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen ended up with two catches for five yards on four targets in Week 4 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Spin: Kyle Allen looked to Olsen early and often in this one, but this was a very disappointing performance. Olsen remains a borderline low-end TE1 or high-end TE2 in most leagues heading into Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

From TheHuddle

Sep 29 6:10pm ET

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had two catches for five yards in Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. It was a tough one for Olsen, who had gotten off to a strong start to the season. It's safe to assume that Olsen won't have a game as poor as this again, but it's also important to note that Olsen isn't guaranteed to be productive on a week-to-week basis at this point in his career.
