2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Olsen's Week 3 injury derailed any chance for a productive season. His return from the broken foot likely hurt fantasy owners because he never fully recovered as a fantasy asset, but his ability to play is a positive for 2018. Olsen has been the safety blanket option for Cam Newton and his return should bring production.

Some owners may feel burned by Olsen after using an early selection on the tight end, but injury shouldn't be a major concern. 2017 was with first time he's missed a game since his 2007 rookie year. Olsen's target volume makes him one of the safer options at a thin position and if he's passed on for riskier options, he's a major value. Because of his proven production, his should be considered after the "big three" at the position (Gonk, Kelce, Ertz) and if he slips in favor of players like Jimmy Graham or Evan Engram, he could be a strong value for drafters.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Greg Olsen gets in full practice Thursday
Friday evaluation crucial
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 11, 1:30 pm

Carolina Panthers
Friday evaluation crucial for Greg Olsen, said Rivera, who moved around well but had back to back full days of practice putting stress on the foot. (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Olsen was limited on Wednesday as he attempts to recover from a foot injury. He's not a lock to play but we should get a better idea of his status on Friday. Olsen is worth a flier pickup given the weakness of the tight end position in fantasy football.


Injury Ian Thomas to fill void of Greg Olsen?
Still waiting on official diagnosis on Olsen
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 10, 11:30 am

Carolina Panthers
The downside of this Week 1 victory is that the Panthers likely will have to replace Greg Olsen (foot) for an extended period of time. First up will be rookie Ian Thomas, a fourth-round pick out of Indiana, and then there's former Canisius College basketball player Chris Manhertz, who came to Carolina two years ago as a project. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Manhertz profiles more as a blocker so Thomas has a chance at fantasy relevance as long as Olsen remains sidelined. The tight end position is a focal point of the Panthers offense but it remains to be seen how much that will change with Olsen out. Last year, the passing game ran through Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffrey during the 9 games missed by Olsen.


Injury Greg Olsen expected to play
Back injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 8, 10:45 pm

Carolina Panthers
Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Cowboys due to a back injury, is good to go, per source. Olsen’s back was “a little sore early in week but no issues,” per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Olsen popped up on the injury report earlier today as questionable with a back injury. It sounds like Olsen will play and should be a solid TE1 option against the Cowboys.
