Two key Saints, right tackle Zach Strief and nose tackle Brodrick Bunkley, are active for the game vs. Carolina after being listed as questionable with ankle injuries. Both practiced on a limited basis Friday.
Panthers tight end Greg Olsen will look to be heavily involved heading into his matchup against the Jets in Week 15.
Olsen was targeted a team-high 12 times and finished with eight catches for 40 yards in a loss to the Saints in Week 14. He has been targeted at least seven times in each of his last four games, totaling 211 yards and two touchdowns over that span.
Olsen will face a New York defense that has allowed just one touchdown to a tight end over the last four games. Opposing tight ends have scored 9.23 Fantasy points per game against the Jets, which is still the fifth most points allowed by a team this season. Consider him a solid starting option in the majority of formats heading into Week 15.
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart has been diagnosed with a torn MCL, a team spokesman told The Charlotte Observer. Coach Ron Rivera said prior to this announcement he was hopeful Stewart would play again this season, but the new diagnosis could change Stewart's status.
