Week 10: Player Upgrades
Danny Amendola made it through Sunday's game unscathed, but Dobson was the real winner. With Kenbrell Thompkins inactive, Dobson made his most convincing case yet to be a productive receiver in a resurgent Patriots offense. He caught five passes for 130 yards and a pair of touchdowns as Amendola and Rob Gronkowski took some attention away from the rookie. Not all his matchups are favorable, but Dobson does draw fantasy-friendly games against the Broncos, Ravens and Bills before the season ends.
In a year where tight end depth is lacking, Olsen has strung together solid yet unspectacular performances week after week. On Sunday against the Falcons, he raised his game with 66 receiving yards on four catches. He also added his second touchdown in as many weeks. Olsen ranks ninth in receptions among tight ends and boasts a robust 12.5 yards per catch – a terrific average this side of Jimmy Graham. Tough matchups await the Panthers, but offensively they are beginning to click and Olsen is playing an integral role in making Carolina go.
