2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Olsen almost finished with identical production in 2015 (77/1105/7 on 124 targets) as 2014 (84/1008/6 on 123 targets). Greg has scored five TDs or more in his last eight seasons (49 in 142 career games). The injury to Kelvin Benjamin probably led to tougher coverage in many games thus a slight decline in his catch rate (62.1). He had five games with double-digit targets and three games with over 100 yards receiving. Two of his best games came against the Saints (8/134/2 and 9/129). Last year Cam completed 97 passes for 1203 yards and nine TDs in 152 targets to the TE position. His floor is really high with three straight years with 70+ catches and two straight with 1000+ yards receiving. Greg should have a baseline of 80+ catches for 1000+ yards and mid-tier TDs.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1

4.10 Matt Brandon - lthough I wanted to draft three wide receivers within the first four rounds, my plan immediately changed when 29 wide outs were selected before my fourth-round pick.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
6.05 Scout Fantasy - Shawn Childs - Tough passing on an edge at TE in the 6th round. Olsen has back-to-back 1000 yard receiving seasons and he is the number one option in the passing game in Carolina.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
5.06 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - Olsen is by far the second best TE. With him still sitting on the board in Round 5, I couldn't pass up on him.
