Week 6: Start 'Em
Through the first four games of the 2013 NFL season, tight end Greg Olsen is off to his best start - catching 21 passes for 273 yards and one touchdown. If he keeps up this pace, he should have no problem surpassing his career highs. The Panthers are very weak at receiver and don't have many trustworthy guys, so Cam Newton seems to be looking more and more Olsen's way when he needs to convert a third down or make a big play. This week Olsen faces a really juicy match up in the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings through four games this season have given up 21 receptions for 218 yards and five touchdowns to tight ends. If you are in need of a TE or flex start, Olsen should be in your lineup
With the news that Owen Daniels will be out for what looks like multiple weeks, the question most fantasy owners are thinking is: who can I use to replace him? A good idea might be the same way the Houston Texans plan to replace him and that is with 4th year tight end Garrett Graham. While Graham hasn't done very much in his first three seasons, he has become much more productive this season - despite only playing in two TE sets. In limited time this season, Graham has 15 receptions for 141 yards and three touchdowns. Graham has a nice matchup this week vs. the Rams and if you are in a league that starts a TE, Graham might just be your man - especially in deeper leagues.
