TE Greg Olsen (Carolina)
Percent owned (ESPN): 16.5%
I was surprised to see the Olsen was owned in less than 25% of all leagues. Through 4 games, he has 20 catches for 256 yards and a score and has surpassed 5 fantasy points (standard) in 3 of 4 games, including 23 total in his last 2. You can do a lot worse with a low end TE1 or a bye week filler.
WR James Jones (Green Bay)
Percent owned (ESPN): 21.6%
Greg Jennings is hurt again. With the exception of that ugly week 2 game against Chicago, in which neither team was prepared for a Thursday Night game, Jones has had at least 5 fantasy points every week and he’s going to be a starting receiver on one of the league’s most explosive offenses as long as Jennings is out. On the year, he’s caught 16 passes for 191 yards and 3 scores.
RB Brandon Bolden (New England)
Percent owned (ESPN): 0.3%
Bill Belichick can be inconsistent with his running backs, but Brandon Bolden looked awfully good last week, rushing for 137 yards and a score on 16 c...
