Panthers TE Greg Olsen (knee, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 15. Olsen should play in Week 15 against the G-Men. The Giants are #22 in TE aFPA, so Olsen only trails Rob Gronkowski in our tight end rankings.

Scouting Report

Super Bowl vs. Denver

Greg Olsen didn’t find the end zone in the NFC Championship Game in a blowout win over the Cardinals, but he did catch six passes for 113 yards and led the team with eight targets. Olsen remains an elite tight end in the NFL and should be relied upon heavily against Denver this week in the Super Bowl.

The Broncos gave up the least yards to opposing passers this season, but they were only average against the tight end position specifically. In the AFC Championship Game, Rob Gronkowski had a big game against them, and Panthers quarterback Cam Newton should be expected to lean on his tight end as usual. Olsen is far and away the best tight end option this week and if you can’t get him, then you’ll need to make up ground elsewhere in your lineup.
