Panthers Beat: Expect more TE Greg Olsen in Week 9

Thursday, October 30, 2014, 11:32am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Panthers beat writer David Newton: (TE Greg Olsen) was having a career season until Seattle held him to one catch. He still leads the team with 42 receptions and the Panthers would like to show the rest of the country that their tight end deserves some Pro Bowl consideration. Look for Carolina to toss in a couple of tight end screens that have been so effective. Also look for Olsen to be a bigger part of the game plan in the red zone, where the Panthers scored only six points on three trips against the Seahawks. Statistically, it looks like the Saints are vulnerable.

Fantasy Impact:

Olsen has caught at least five passes in six of his eight games this season. We're expecting he'll bounce back against the Saints on Thursday night.

Scouting Report

Week 9 – Greg Olsen vs. New Orleans

Greg Olsen was very disappointing against the Seahawks on Sunday, putting up only 16 yards on one reception. He was only targeted three times, and this was easily his worst game of the season as the Panthers fell to Seattle.

Olsen should rebound against the Saints this week, even though the Saints have been better than anyone against the tight end position this year. They’ve allowed the second most points in the league against opposing wide receivers however, and the Panthers use Olsen so much that the Saints will have all they can handle. Olsen’s output last week was disappointing, but with how he’s been this season, he should still be considered a must start in all league formats.
