Panthers | Greg Olsen signing extension

Thu, 26 Apr 2018 08:10:05 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen will sign a two-year extension Thursday, April 26, worth $8.55 million per season with a maximum value of up to $10.05 million per year. He could become the highest-paid tight end in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is a good PPR tight end. However, he's 33, coming off an injury-riddled year and doesn't catch a high number of touchdowns. He'll be an upper-middle TE1 in fantasy.

Panthers | Greg Olsen at full health

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 12:30:41 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said his injured foot is completely healed and that his focus this offseason is securing a contract extension before the regular season begins. If an extension is not achieved then Olsen said broadcasting for Monday Night Football would be a viable option.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is one of the best tight ends in the NFL when he's 100%. Before missing seven games last year, he had averaged 1,061.6 yards and 5.3 touchdowns in the previous three years. Assuming he plays, he should be one of the first three to five tight ends drafted.

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 13:45:17 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will not need any more surgery on his foot and is looking forward to working with new offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen was limited to seven regular season games because of his foot injury and posted only 191 yards and one touchdown during those games. He played better in the playoff game and should be ready for the 2018 season. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Greg Olsen shines in playoff loss

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 17:14:38 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen posted eight receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in the NFC Wild Card Game on Sunday, Jan. 7, against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen missed the last game down in the Big Easy, as he was just getting over a foot injury and the team didn't want to risk him on the artificial surface. He was back, and had a strong game, showing he has plenty left in the tank. The tight end's three-year streak of 1,000 receiving yards came to an end because of his lengthy injury, but he remains a legit TE1 in fantasy heading into 2018.
