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.

Panthers | Extension coming for Greg Olsen?

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 18:42:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen is one of the players the team is "looking at" an extension for, general manager Marty Hurney said Thursday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen has one of the highest floors of any tight end and should be one of the first players at his position selected in all formats.

Panthers | Greg Olsen to play out his deal

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 07:54:56 -0700

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen said he plans to play out his contract. He said he didn't want to add to the distractions for the team after general manager Dave Gettleman was fired.

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old has three straight 1,000-yard seasons and averaged 80.3 catches per season. His value took a hit last year when his three touchdowns were half of what he scored in each of the previous three seasons. A healthy Cam Newton should bring that back up to the norm, and Olsen is a high-end TE1 just devoid of much upside.

Panthers | Greg Olsen will report on time

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 15:26:22 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen will report to training camp on time Tuesday, July 25, even though he considered holding out because he wants a new contract, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen has been one of the best tight ends in the NFL over the last several years and will continue to be a big part of the team's passing game. He will be a solid No. 1 fantasy tight end for owners as long as he is healthy.

Panthers | Greg Olsen can make history in 2017

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 15:38:39 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen can become just the fourth tight end ever to gain at least 1,000 yards in four seasons. Not only that, but achieving 1,000 yards this season would mark the fourth straight year in which Olsen has reached that mark.

Fantasy Tip: Aside from Rob Gronkowski, Olsen is arguably the best tight end in the NFL. He's certainly the most consistent at his position. View him as an early- to midround pick.

Panthers | Still no decision made Greg Olsen's contract

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 08:04:50 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen and his agent still have yet to make a decision regarding whether or not Wilson will show up for training camp. Olsen is due to make $6.5 million in each the next two seasons and ranks 12th in guaranteed money, making the three-time Pro Bowler one of the more underpaid tight ends in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is also 32 years old, so he is likely looking at his final opportunity to land a big contract. It would be a surprise if he holds out, just like it would be a minor shock if the team didn't try to appease him in some way. Assuming he reports to camp in time, Olsen needs to be considered among the top-five tight ends in fantasy yet again.

Panthers | Greg Olsen could hold out

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 07:21:34 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen doesn't rule out holding out of training camp for a new contract.

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old has three straight 1,000-yard seasons, but last year's three touchdowns really hurt his stock. He's still an effective, high-end TE1 in fantasy. However, the ceiling might not be as high as others in that tier.

Panthers | Greg Olsen looking for new deal

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 19:36:30 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen hopes to receive a new deal that would pay him like one of the top tight ends in the NFL, according to sources. His $7.5 million per year average ranks seventh among tight ends in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen has posted at least 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and has at least five touchdowns in eight of his last nine seasons. Olsen will continue to be one of the main targets in the team's passing game and should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Greg Olsen quiet in finale

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 20:12:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen posted three receptions for just 22 yards in the Week 17 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: Overall, it was a great season for Olsen. He became the first tight end in NFL history to go for 1,000 or more receiving yards in three straight seasons. He'll once again be a top TE1 in all fantasy formats in 2017.
