2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Sep-30-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (9/30): Greg Olsen was already a top target, but an incomplete WR corps have forced the offense to run through him. Cam Newton is leaning heavily on the former Miami Hurricanes star. In three games, Olsen already accumulated 15 receptions for 215 yards and two TDs. If you didn't know already, Olsen is a lock to finish among the elite Fantasy tight ends.
Olsen's stats have been trending upward through each of the past four seasons. He set career highs in catches (84), yards (1008) and targets (123) last year and scored six times. He has found the end zone at least five times per season since the start of 2008. He hasn't missed a game since then either. Olsen ended five games with double-digit targets and four games with eight or more catches. He flashed elite upside in Weeks 14 and 15 as he caught 20 of 24 targets for 182 yards and one TD. Greg had the second-most snaps of any tight end in the league (1,091). He will be the No. 2 option in this passing game and has a strong chance of leading the team in catches because of his strong catch rate (68.3 in 2014, 66.9 over the past three years). Olsen is a top-five Fantasy TE with 70-plus receptions and 900-plus yards well within reach. He'll rank even higher if he can score a few more touchdowns. His early ADP is 55, making him the fourth TE off the board behind Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham and Travis Kelce. His resume is much stronger than Kelce's.
