Panthers | Greg Olsen expects to play

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 15:39:48 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said he expects to play against the New York Jets as long as he does not suffer a setback during practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen has miss most of the season because of his foot injury but is one of the better tight ends in the NFL when he is healthy. He can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues this week, but owners may want to lower their expectations a bit.

Panthers | Greg Olsen has target date

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 16:40:10 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said he is looking at Week 12 against the New York Jets as a possible return date. He said he will slowly return to practice over the next few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen probably will be limited during practice over the next few weeks but should play in the final six games of the season if he does not suffer a setback. He will be one of the top targets in the passing game when he returns and will be a No. 1 fantasy tight end.

Panthers | Greg Olsen making progress

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 10:36:47 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is expected to test his foot with trainers either Monday, Oct. 30, or Tuesday, Oct. 31. He is eligible to return to practice this week and can resume playing in Week 12 if all goes well.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen has the potential to be a significant addition in leagues in which he was dropped should he be able to return as expected, as the tight end position has been a sore subject for many fantasy owners this year. Ed Dickson got off to a fast start in Olsen's absence, but he has bottomed out as of late. Cam Newton has struggled in three straight games as well, so having his Pro Bowl tight end back should help him as well. Olsen should be treated as a midrange TE1 when he returns.

Panthers | Greg Olsen likely to practice next week

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 09:14:38 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) expects to practice when he is eligible to do so next week after going on the Reserve/Injured list after suffering a broken right foot in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen will eligible to return to game action following the Panthers' bye in Week 11, and it appears he is on track to do so, although foot injuries are notoriously tricky and his kind (Jones' fracture) often require a second operation. Nevertheless, Olsen should be stashed wherever possible, as he is one of the few consistent forces at his position when healthy.

Panthers | Greg Olsen goes to IR

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 11:33:04 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 19, after having surgery on his broken foot Monday, Sept. 18. Specifically, Olsen broke the fifth metatarsal on his right foot and had a screw inserted to repair the fracture, according to Carolina's head athletic trainer.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tremendous loss for an already struggling offense. Ed Dickson will take over as the starting tight end, but his fantasy value doesn't hold a candle to Olsen's. Don't add him to replace Olsen unless you're desperate.

Panthers | Greg Olsen to have surgery

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 08:49:36 -0700

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will undergo surgery on his broken right foot and miss six to eight weeks. The team will decide after surgery whether he'll be placed on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return.

Fantasy Tip: If you have roster space, hold on to him and stash him for the stretch run. Ed Dickson had two grabs for 26 yards in his absence, but he doesn't have much fantasy appeal. Expect Kelvin Benjamin to see more targets with Cam Newton's security blanket out. K-Benj is a good WR2 to have.

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 05:32:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) figures to miss six games and could go on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return. It's not a season-ending injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ed Dickson had two catches for 26 yards in the game, and he has very little roster appeal. Kelvin Benjamin should see more looks in Olsen's absence as a WR2.
