Carolina Panthers’ tight end Greg Olsen has shown signs of being a high-end tight end, most notably in 2009 when he caught 60 passes for 612 yards and eight scores. The Panthers are expecting big things from Olsen (see Associated Press article). Should fantasy owners follow suit?.
Olsen has scored at least five touchdown in the past four seasons, and is coming off a decent 45 catch, 540 yard, five TD campaign.

The two backs obviously complement each other well, but that doesn’t really help for fantasy purposes. The problem with these two is that there might be a diamond in the rough, but you will have to flip a weekly...
