Panthers | Greg Olsen nearly invisible

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:09:16 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) returned in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings, but he went without a catch and he was targeted just once.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen doesn't look 100 percent, or anything close to it, and he is a risky fantasy play for the remainder of this season.

Panthers | Greg Olsen will play in Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 09:00:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is expected to receive his normal workload this week but will be a risky option because he has dealt with foot injuries for most of the season. He can still be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in most leagues.

Panthers | Greg Olsen set to play

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 20:48:45 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: There is always a chance Olsen's foot injury could flare up during the game, but he is one of the top tight ends when healthy and can be used as a midrange TE1 against Minnesota.

Panthers | Greg Olsen listed as questionable

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 10:31:38 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen was held out last week as the Panthers opted not to push his foot injury on the artificial surface of the Superdome with the first of three straight home games on natural grass beginning this weekend. Olsen is going to be a risky option to a difficult matchup and the likelihood he could suffer an in-game setback, but with Devin Funchess drawing shadow coverage from Xavier Rhodes and the lack of good fantasy options at tight end, most owners likely have to start him and hope for the best.

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 12:43:01 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is on track to play this week and is not expected to see limited snaps. He is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and should be a starter in all fantasy leagues despite the matchup.

Panthers | Greg Olsen won't be limited Sunday

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 21:12:37 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will not be on a "pitch count" against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Olson had a snap restriction in Week 12, though that didn't much matter since he aggravated the injury. His return should be a big boost for the offense, even if a tough matchup with the Vikings dampens his fantasy outlook. It'd be tempting to roll him out there this Sunday despite the potential downside.

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 15:00:18 -0800

Panthers | Greg Olsen practices fully

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 11:22:52 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Tip: There were reports Carolina did not want to push Olsen in Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints because the Superdome isn't a natural grass field, and this news would seem to suggest it played a role in the team's thinking. With three straight games at home beginning this week, Olsen should be in good shape in that regard as long as his foot can hold up. He's not a recommended play in fantasy this week, however, as the Minnesota Vikings are playing very good defense of late.
