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.

Panthers | Greg Olsen likely out six games

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.

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:45:55 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) said he suffered a broken foot during the team's Week 2 game.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen probably will be a candidate for the Reserve/Injured list depending on his timetable, so owners will need to look for other options at the position. Ed Dickson likely will take over as Carolina's starting tight end but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 11:51:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) will not return to the team's Week 2 game because of his foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update on Olsen's status after the game to see if he will miss more time. Olsen is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and is a must-start option when he is healthy, but owners may want to look for other options in case Olsen misses time.

Panthers | Greg Olsen quiet in opener

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 20:17:40 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen was limited to just two catches for 18 yards on four targets in Week 1 at San Francisco.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is starting out in a bit of a hole as he tries for his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season. Despite the slow day, he'll be just fine for fantasy owners going forward. He'll look to get back on track in Week 2 against the visiting Bills.

Panthers | Greg Olsen incentives increase

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 13:53:41 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen had $2 million added to his incentives Thursday, Aug. 31, according to a source. The incentives are based on catches, receiving yards, average yards per catch and other achievements.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is an elite NFL tight end, tallying more than 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. His three touchdowns in 2017 left something to be desired, but Olsen should be one of the first three tight ends taken in fantasy drafts.

Panthers | No Greg Olsen extension imminent

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 20:27:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen's agent has talked with interim general manager Marty Hurney about a possible contract extension for Olsen, but no deal is imminent at this point, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is looking for a new deal but will probably have to wait until next offseason for a deal. He has been one of the most consistent tight ends in the NFL and should be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in all fantasy leagues.
