Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen is a strong tight end option this week in his matchup against the Detroit Lions. The Lions have given up and an average of 8.2 points to the position so far this season but they have not come up against many good tight ends so far this season. Olsen has looked like he has returned to his effective level of play since his return from injury, and while he struggled against the Pittsburgh Steelers in his last matchup he had previously scored in his previous three games.
Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had a decent outing against the Pittsburgh Steelers. While Olsen owners would have hoped for a very impressive performance, his 40 yards from four receptions certainly isn't a massive disappointment- especially on a night where the Panthers offense on a whole struggled to make an impact on the game.
Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has a great opportunity to continue his impressive form since his return from injury. The Pittsburgh Steelers have given up around ten points to the position since the start of the season, and with quarterback Cam Newton favoring his veteran tight end historically that gives Olsen a great chance to have a high scoring week.
