  • Greg Olsen Returns To Form In Win Against Packers

    Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen caught nine passes for 166 yards and one touchdown as the Panthers beat the Packers 31-24. Olsen has been limited on the field since being activated from Injured Reserve the past few weeks, but this performance flashed some of that Pro Bowl talent. Olsen was open all over the field and his return is a boon to Carolina's playoff hopes moving forward.

  • Devin Funchess, Christian McCaffrey, Greg Olsen Practice In Full

    Carolina Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess (shoulder), rookie running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) and tight end Greg Olsen (foot) all practiced in full Thursday. All three players will suit up in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers in a good matchup. Funchess is quarterback Cam Newton's No. 1 receiver, while McCaffrey is the most dynamic and explosive player out of the backfield. Funchess is a high-end WR2, while McCaffrey is a must-start RB2 in PPR leagues. Olsen, who was a bust in Week 14 with zero points for fantasy owners and will remain a very risky low-end TE1 until he proves he's healthy. The Packers are surprisingly very stout against tight ends this year, allowing the second fewest fantasy points per game (9.3) to the position.

  • Greg Olsen Could Bust In Week 15

    Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen will be a tough start in fantasy for Week 15. Not only has he returned slowly from a foot injury that has sidelined him all season, but the matchup will be one of the most daunting of the season. The Panthers play a Packers defense that certainly can be beat in the air but have only allowed the second fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Their highest yardage total allowed to the position is 61 yards to Jason Witten in Week 5, and they have allowed only three touchdown passes all season to tight ends. Olsen is rusty and is still trying to work his way back into the flow of the offense. Olsen's pedigree will have fantasy owners considering him for fantasy starting status this week, but it would be best to stay away and find other options.
