Panthers QB Cam Newton (back, out) has been ruled out for Week 15. Newton has been released from the hospital, but he’s not going to play in Week 15. Derek Anderson will draw the start and is probably the better pocket passer. This means we don’t see this situation as a downgrade for Kelvin Benjamin or Greg Olsen. They both produced big fantasy lines in Week 1 when Anderson started against the Bucs.

Divisional Round – Greg Olsen vs. Seattle
Greg Olsen didn’t do much against the Cardinals last week, as the Panthers tried desperately to live up to their sub-500 prowess on the season and lose to a third string quarterback. Alas, they emerged victorious over the insufferable Ryan Lindley and his two turnovers and 2.9 yard average yards per pass attempt. Olsen wound up with only 37 yards on three catches.
Olsen is still an elite guy, but he’s facing a brutal Seattle defense and the tight end spot is a bit crowded this week with guys like Rob Gronkowski and Julius Thomas back in the mix. Olsen should be considered a solid starter, but not elite this week and fantasy owners should try to lock up one of those other two guys if possible.
