Draft note
by John Paulsen
Olsen posted 52-597-2 on 81 targets in 14 games last season, finishing as the league’s No. 13 fantasy tight end. Despite not always having a ton of talent at the position, Russell Wilson has targeted his tight ends at a higher rate than the average NFL quarterback, so Olsen is a threat to post TE1-type numbers as long as he can stay healthy. Best ball folks could draft both Olsen and Will Dissly and probably get TE1 production out of the duo.

SEA TE Greg Olsen - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

This is going to be quite the strange site. After nine years in Carolina, Greg Olsen now takes his talent northwest to the Seahawks. Seattle has gotten the tight end more involved recently, as Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister both saw some work during the 2019 season. Now you get a veteran like Olsen who still has some fuel left in the tank after nearly missing the top 12 fantasy tight ends in 2019 and that was with missing two games. Olsen will be more than just a veteran presence for Seattle.

Fantasy Downside

Olsen obviously isn't a spring chicken here. He's 35 years old and has had different injury issues over the last three seasons. After nine seasons of playing all 16 regular season games, Olsen has played 30 total games in the last three seasons. 2019, however, was certainly a bounceback in that aspect after he missed 16 games total between 2017 and 2018. The aforementioned Dissly and Hollister will also still be around.

2020 Bottom Line

Olsen is ready for a fresh start and 35 years old after his emotional finish with the Panthers. It's also quite possible this is the last we'll see of Olsen on the football field (it's a near-guarantee we'll see and hear him in the broadcast booth after his playing days are over, especially after calling a game during the Panthers' bye week last season). He should immediately connect well with Russell Wilson and have room to work on the field with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett on the outside.
