Olsen caught just three of six targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Redskins. The reliable tight end scored for the third time in the last four games, but the Panthers didn't need to rely on him Sunday in what was a blowout victory. Olsen continues to be one of the most heavily-targeted Carolina pass catchers on a weekly basis, and his six touchdowns rank fourth among NFL tight ends. Next up for Olsen and company is a Thanksgiving trip to Dallas.
Olsen caught all eight of his targets for 80 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. The tight end unsurprisingly paced the Panthers in both catches and yards. Olsen is by far quarterback Cam Newton's favorite target, as he leads the team in receptions (45), yards (664), and receiving touchdowns (five). His high usage rate makes him an excellent source of consistent week-to-week production.
Olsen caught 4-of-7 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Packers. The veteran's steady season continued Sunday, as he has now scored three touchdowns in the last four games, with at least 65 receiving yards in each contest. Olsen continues to serve as a top target for Cam Newton, and is on pace to lead the Panthers in receiving yardage. Look for the duo to remain productive in Week 10 versus the Titans.
Olsen finished with a team-high six catches (on 12 targets) for 79 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's overtime victory against the Colts. Olsen once again led all Panthers pass-catchers in receptions, targets and yards Monday night, when moving the ball through the air in heavy rain proved rather challenging at times. Although he committed one notable, uncharacteristic drop, Olsen compensated with a 27-yard touchdown catch during the third quarter, bringing his season tally to four scores through seven games played. As Carolina's top target in the passing game, Olsen will now look forward to a Week 9 matchup against the Packers.
Olsen caught 7-of-11 targets for 131 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 upset win at Seattle. Olsen was already having a big game, before he shook free for a 20-yard touchdown with just 36 seconds left in regulation, giving Carolina the come-from-behind win. He's been a little up-and-down from an offensive production standpoint this season, with three strong games and a pair of duds, but he remains Cam Newton's most dangerous and reliable weapon in the passing game. He'll try to post another big game against Philadelphia in Week 7.
