2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Finally free from the shackles of being a starting tight end in a Mike Martz led offense, Olsen had a chance to fulfill the promise that led him to being a 1st round pick of the Bears in the 2008 draft. And for half a season, it looked like Olsen might be on the verge of fulfilling that promise. In his first eight games, he caught 30 passes for 359 yards and four touchdowns, averaging a solid 7.5 FPts/G which would have allowed him to finish as a top ten fantasy tight end. Unfortunately, he tailed off badly over the final half of the season with 15 receptions for 181 yards and a single touchdown. Worse yet, Olsen was completely AWOL in the Panthers final three games with just four targets. Although Olsen occasionally shows glimpses of the talent that made him a 1st round pick, the bottom line is that his career highs all came in the 2008 season when he caught 60 passes for 612 yards and eight touchdowns. In today’s world, that would make him a solid backup fantasy tight end. While somebody might sell you on the fact that Olsen will get Jeremy Shockey’s looks now that he is no longer in Carolina, that’s snake oil since the Panthers are now better equipped at the wide receiver position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jonathan Stewart sits Wednesday     -- Wed Dec 16 10:38 am --

Olsen practices
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)

FF Today'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     -- Tue Dec 15 9:33 am --

Panthers TE will be limited in practice but should face Giants
Panthers beat writer ( 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)

FF Today'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.
