Panthers give TE Greg Olsen a three-year extension
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Panthers announced they signed tight end Greg Olsen to a three-year contract extension on Thursday that will keep him in Carolina through the 2018 season, per the team's official website. The extension is worth $22.5 million, with a $12 million signing bonus, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Olsen, 29, is fresh off a career year after setting franchise records for receptions (84) and receiving yards (1,008) by a tight end in a season. He cracked the 1,000-yard threshold for the first time in eight seasons in the NFL. He has 5,188 yards and 52 touchdowns in his career, and is the only tight end to catch at least five touchdown passes every year since 2008.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen, WR Kelvin Benjamin crack 1,000-yard mark
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen and wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin each surpassed the 1,000-yard threshold on the season during Sunday's win over the Falcons in Week 17. They became the second duo in franchise history to reach 1,000-plus yards since Patrick Jeffers and Muhsin Muhammad in 1999.

Olsen caught two of three passes thrown his way for 27 yards. He has 84 catches for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns this season. Benjamin turned in five targets into one catch for 9 yards. He finishes his rookie campaign with 73 catches for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. 

The Panthers will advance to the first round of the playoffs next week against Arizona.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen snags just one against Browns
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Those who assumed Panthers tight end Greg Olsen would gain the 40 yards he needed through the air to reach 1,000 on the season Sunday against Cleveland assumed wrong.

Olsen was held without a catch through three quarters and finished with one for 21 yards. It was his second-lowest output of the year. He was targeted just three times in the game.

He needs 19 yards at Atlanta next Sunday to earn his first 1,000-yard season.

Fantasy Analysis | 1418620088
Kelvin Benjamin, Greg Olsen benefit from backup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Going without quarterback Cam Newton, who's sidelined by two fractures in his back, may seem like bad news for the Panthers offense as a whole, but in two games with backup Derek Anderson under center, that hasn't proven to be the case for the team's top two receiving threats, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and tight end Greg Olsen.

Benjamin had eight catches for 104 yards Week 15 against Tampa Bay. It was his second game in his last six with more than 75 receiving yards. He's had six of those games in all this season. Two of them have come in Anderson's two starts.

Olsen had 10 catches for 110 yards Week 15 against Tampa Bay. It was his second game in his last seven with more than 75 receiving yards. He's had four of those games in all this season. Two of them have come in Anderson's two starts.

Both players also got 13 targets in Week 15, equaling a season high for Benjamin and setting a season high for Olsen.

Of course, Anderson's 40 pass attempts were more than Newton has had in all but two starts this season, but maybe that's the point. The plays Newton contributes with his legs rob from the potential plays he could make with his arm, which limits Benjamin's and Olsen's targets. If nothing else, it means you should stick with Benjamin and Olsen in Fantasy even if Newton remains sidelined for Week 16 against Cleveland.
