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.

Week 15 – Greg Olsen vs. Tampa Bay
Greg Olsen had another nice outing for the Panthers last week. He was targeted a team high 11 times and caught 10 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. The Carolina offense looked to be firing on all cylinders last week as they demolished the Saints, and it was good to see Olsen putting up big numbers again.
This week, Olsen faces a below average Bucs defense that has actually been decent against the tight end position. However, Olsen had 83 yards and a touchdown against Tampa Bay in Week 1 of the season, and he’s averaged 57.4 yards and 0.4 touchdowns against the Bucs over the past two years. Olsen should be active as a TE1 in all leagues.
