2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Greg Olsen became the surest pair of hands in Carolina following the departure of Steve Smith. As a result, Olsen has seen his targets ascend over 100 for three consecutive seasons. The increased reliability helped Olsen post his most productive fantasy season to date in his eighth year as a pro. The team inked him to a new deal prior to training camp, and the plan should remain unchanged moving forward. Olsen’s upside is capped because he doesn’t provide much downfield game and his team has plenty of options in the red zone. However, the volume of passes thrown his way allows him to rack up plenty of receptions and yardage, making him one of the more consistent tight ends in the league. His totals from 2014 are far closer to his ceiling, but he isn’t likely to regress too much. There are a lot of uncertainties at the top of the positional fantasy rankings, with several tight ends moving to new situations. As a result, fantasy owners are putting more value into Olsen’s more projectable 2015 forecast. As a top-three tight end option in PPR leagues, Olsen’s value drops to that of an average starter in touchdown leagues, so let your league settings set Olsen’s value on draft day. Backup Ed Dickson hasn’t been able to recapture the fantasy spotlight since 2011, when he emerged as the starter in Baltimore. Even if his role is expanded at some point during the season, odds are there would be better fantasy options available on the waiver wire.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jonathan Stewart sits Wednesday
Olsen practices
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 16, 10:38 am

Carolina Panthers
No sign of Jonathan Stewart as media portion of practice ends. Greg Olsen and Charles Tillman are out here. A lot of vet days, per usual. (Max Henson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Stewart injured his foot last week and may not see the practice field this week. Owners should monitor his progress throughout the week and have a Plan B in place. Rookie Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker would likely form a committee if Stewart doesn't play.


Injury Greg Olsen (knee) expected to play Week 15
Panthers TE will be limited in practice but should face Giants
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Dec 15, 9:33 am

Carolina Panthers
Panthers beat writer (CharlotteObserver.com) Joe Person on Twitter: "Greg Olsen expected to be limited with his knee injury this week. But he hasn't missed a game since his rookie year. He will play Sunday." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Olsen is probably fine to fire up as a TE1 but it's worth monitoring his status during the week and before game time. If for any reason he's unable to go on Sunday, TE Ed Dickson makes a fine replacement in a good matchup.
