  • Posted: 7/24/2017 3:26pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 7/18/2017 3:38pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 7/15/2017 8:04am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 6/21/2017 7:21am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 7:36pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 8:12pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 9:32am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Olsen received a few days off during practice this week but should not be limited against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Olsen should continue to be a solid No. 1 tight end for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 4:02pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has been one of the better tight end in fantasy leagues this season and should be heavily involved in the passing game in Week 17. He is a must-start player in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 5:35pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is a TE1 if he plays in Week 17, but have a backup plan in place in case he sits out a game that means little for Carolina.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:49pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen finished with a team-high six receptions for 59 yards on 12 targets in the Week 16 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He became the first tight end in NFL history to record 1,000 receiving yards in three straight seasons.

    Huddle Up: Olsen might not be thought about like New England's Rob Gronkowski when it comes to fantasy value, but at least he is durable and consistent. He will be a Top 5 fantasy tight end again in 2017, as he is showing no signs of slowing down.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 3:00pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is one of the top targets in the passing game for the Panthers and will continue to see plenty of targets. He should be considered one of the best tight ends for fantasy owners and is a must-start option.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 10:56am ET

    Contrary to a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 22, according to the official injury report.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is expected to play in Week 16 despite missing the last two days of practice. He should be one of the main options in the passing game and can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 9:28am ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Olsen's injury does not appear to be dealing with a serious injury and probably will be in uniform for the Week 16 game. Olsen has posted good numbers over the last month and should be a fine No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 3:11pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) should still be able to play in Week 16 despite dealing with an elbow injury. Head coach Ron Rivera is not concerned about the ailment.

    Huddle Up: Olsen will tough it out for fantasy championship weekend. He's a top TE1 again this week despite the injury, especially in an extremely favorable matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Start him per usual.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 2:26pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: The severity of Olsen's injury is not known, so owners should keep an eye on the situation during the week. He has recorded at least 80 yards in each of the last two games and should be a No. 1 tight end if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 12/17/2016 5:49pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen needs 93 yards to become the first tight end in NFL history to reach 1,000 receiving yards in three straight seasons.

    Huddle Up: Olsen hasn't had many big performances this year, but he still has one of the highest floors at his position and is a weekly TE1.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 3:21pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught four passes for 87 yards against the San Diego Chargers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has been targeted at least seven times in five of the last seven games but posted more than 80 yards for the first time in seven games. He will continue to have an important role in the passing game and can be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 10:40pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen managed just four receptions for 45 yards on five targets in the Week 12 game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Olsen's fantasy line was rather disappointing considering how poor the Raiders pass defense has been. He'll look to rebound in Week 13 on the road in Seattle, but it might be tough sledding against a much tougher pass D.

  • Posted: 11/25/2016 3:28pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 25, but is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Olsen should be fine for this week's game and will see his normal workload. He has seen his receiving yards drop over the last few weeks but should continue to be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/16/2016 9:31pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen will meet the New Orleans Saints in Week 11 Thursday, Nov. 17. He has just 11 catches for 102 yards and a touchdown over his past three games, and he has been targeted 18 times. Olsen posted six grabs for 94 yards on seven targets in the first meeting in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has been struggling lately, but he is a must-start fantasy option whenever he is active. The Saints are dead last against the NFL in pass defense, giving up 292.7 yards per game through nine outings.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 2:34pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught five passes for 39 yards and did not score a touchdown in a Week 10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Olsen must remain in your lineup each week, and his remaining schedule is rather neutral. The Panthers host the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 8:05pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen managed five receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is a beast in PPR formats, as he has at least five receptions in seven of his eight games this season. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all formats even after last week's egg laying at home.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 2:47pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught one pass for 11 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Olsen posted season lows in receptions, targets and yards but should be more involved next week against the Los Angeles Rams. He should still be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues despite his disappointing performance.

  • Posted: 10/29/2016 6:50pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen's 601 receiving yards are 193 more than any other player at the position, and he is currently on pace to break the single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end.

    Huddle Up: Olsen's steady production at a thin position makes him a high-end TE1 against any opponent.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 6:10pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen posted six receptions for a team-high 94 yards on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: The Panthers are struggling this season, but Olsen brings it every game and has at least 64 yards in each of his games with five or more grabs in each outing. He remains a top-notch TE1 in all fantasy leagues, although owners will have a big hole in Week 7 with the team on a bye.

  • Posted: 10/10/2016 9:42pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen posted nine receptions for 181 yards on 13 targets in the Week 5 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, Oct. 10. He passed former San Diego Chargers great Kellen Winslow for eighth on the all-time list for yards for a tight end.

    Huddle Up: Olsen had a huge game as the safety valve for Derek Anderson, subbing for the injured Cam Newton. Newton remains one of the top fantasy options at his position heading into Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 3:04pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught six passes for 76 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Olsen has been a consistent player for fantasy owners this season and has been targeted at least eight times in every game. Olsen should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 1:51pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen caught six passes for 64 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Olsen was targeted 10 times during the game and has caught at least five passes in each of his first three games. He should continue to be a strong fantasy option for owners because he will be a focal point in the Panthers' passing game.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 10:26pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen was targeted eight times in the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers, finishing with five receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Olsen is the best fantasy option at tight end right now with Rob Gronkowski sidelined, and he might even be the best for the next few weeks even when Gronk returns with quarterback questions for the next couple of weeks in New England.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 9:16pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen had a team-high seven catches for 73 yards in a 21-20 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Even with Kelvin Benjamin back in the mix, Olsen remained heavily involved in the passing game. He should be one of the top fantasy tight ends again in 2016.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 3:54pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (back) will not play in the preseason game against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 26, because he is recovering from back spasms.

    Huddle Up: Olsen should be fine for the regular season and does not need to play in the preseason. He will receive plenty of targets this season and should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/22/2016 12:51pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (back) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 22. The extent of Olsen's participation was not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Aside from Cam Newton, Olsen is arguably the most valuable offensive player the Panthers have, so this is great news for Carolina and Olsen owners. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks leading up to the regular season, he's a top-five tight end on any draft board.

  • Posted: 8/20/2016 12:01pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TEs Greg Olsen (back) and Ed Dickson (undisclosed) are inactive against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 20. Olsen is recovering from back spasms.

    Huddle Up: Dickson has little to no fantasy value as long as Olsen is healthy, which Olsen should be by Week 1. He was Cam Newton's favorite target last year, and he should still be one of the first tight ends drafted even with the return of Kelvin Benjamin.

  • Posted: 8/18/2016 3:29pm ET

    Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen's (back) MRI on his ailing back came back negative, according to head coach Ron Rivera, but Olsen is still dealing with a big spasm.

    Huddle Up: The timetable for Olsen's return wasn't made clear, but it shouldn't be too long since it's not too serious of an issue. He's one of the most reliable tight ends in the NFL and should be one of the first three tight ends taken in fantasy drafts.
