2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Death, taxes, the sun rising in the east and setting in the west, and Greg Olsen finishing with 38 targets in an injury-shortened season due to a foot issue. These are things we all can count on. Of course, the part about 38 targets is just a joke - but it is a little odd that Olsen hit the 38-target mark for the second season in a row.

In terms of fantasy production, Olsen was about as good as it got prior to his foot issues in 2017 and 2018, with five consecutive seasons of 16-games played and 100-plus targets. Although he has yet to post a double-digit touchdown season in his storied NFL career, Olsen is one of Cam Newton's favorite targets and is always near the top of the leaderboard among catches at the tight end position.

At age 34 Olsen is no spring chicken, and he does not have the same burst that made him a first-round pick by the Bears back in 2007. But at a position like tight end, where options get pretty slim outside the top three, Olsen could be a nice late round flier who could be a top-10 tight end in 2019.

News From The Past 90 Days
Greg Olsen joining the Seahawks, one-year deal
One year, $5.5 million in guaranteed money.
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Feb 18, 5:40 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Former Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has agreed to terms on a deal with the Seattle Seahawks, the team announced Tuesday. Terms weren't released, but a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter the deal is for one year and worth $7 million, with $5.5 million in guaranteed money. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Olsen also took visits with Buffalo and Washington before choosing the Seahawks. It's a decent landing spot for Olsen's fantasy value but he's more of a high-end TE2 than a TE1. Jacob Hollister and Will Dissly (ACL) will begin the season in backup roles.


Greg Olsen expected to visit Bills and Redskins
Olsen release from Carolina made official
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Feb 3, 6:45 pm

NFL
Former Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen will visit the Bills and Redskins this week, per source. Buffalo’s GM Brandon Beane used to be with Carolinas, as did Washington’s HC Ron Rivera. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Olsen's release from Carolina was made official today allowing him to take visits and sign with another club. Rivera is obviously very familiar with Olsen from their time together in Carolina. Olsen finished 2019 with 52 receptions, 597 yards and 2 TDs good enough for TE13 in PPR leagues.


Panthers, Greg Olsen set to part ways
Retirement not an option yet
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 30, 8:00 pm

Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers announced today that they have mutually agreed to part ways with TE Greg Olsen. The veteran of 13 seasons ranks fifth all-time among tight ends in both catches, with 718, and yards, with 8,444. The 34-year-old stands as the franchise's all-time leading tight end in terms of receiving yards (6,463), receptions (524) and 100-yard receiving games (10). He ranks second among franchise tight ends in receiving touchdowns (39) behind Wesley Walls (44) and third all-time in receiving yards and receptions behind Steve Smith and Muhsin Muhammad. (Panthers.com)

FFToday's Take: Olsen has struggled with injuries over the last three seasons and is definitely nearing the end of his distinguished career, but he was able to stay on the field often enough in 2019 to turn in a 52-catch campaign. The Athletic reported a few days ago FOX is ready to hire him as an analyst when his playing career is over. Ian Thomas is starting to look like an early sleeper for 2020, although his quarterback situation is among the potential obstacles in his way.
