Panthers TE Greg Olsen catches three passes Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen hauled in just three passes Thursday against the Saints.

Olsen gained 30 yards during the contest. He received just four targets. It's the second straight game where Olsen has struggled in the passing game. He received three targets and had just 16 yards Week 8 against Seattle.

Olsen will look for more Week 10 against the Eagles.

Greg Olsen deserves your trust
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Panthers coach Ron Rivera mentioned Monday that the reason tight end Greg Olsen had only one catch for 16 yards in Week 8 is because the Seahawks rotated their coverage toward him, particularly in the red zone. You can understand why they'd do that after Olsen averaged 70.4 yards with four touchdowns in his first four games.

Unfortunately, since the Seahawks limited the Panthers to just nine points in that game, they've invited other teams to emulate them, and while the Saints, Olsen's Week 9 opponent, certainly aren't the Seahawks defensively, they've done good job of containing tight ends this season, giving up the second-fewest Fantasy points per game to them. And that's even though they rank 31st against the pass.

But just because you can make a reasonable case to sit one this year's most productive and reliable tight ends doesn't mean you should follow through with it. Week 8 was just the second time in eight games that Olsen's production didn't justify a starting spot -- a terrific ratio for any player, regardless of position -- and the Saints haven't really faced a team with a top-flight tight end until now.

If quarterback Cam Newton has big numbers in this game -- and the data suggest he should -- Olsen will, too. Keep him active.

Panthers' Rivera: Seattle rotated coverage toward Greg Olsen
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen by far had his worst performance of the season during Sunday's 13-9 loss against the Seahawks, totaling one catch for 16 yards. Though, coach Ron Rivera gave a lot of credit to the Seattle defense for limiting Olsen. He said Seattle rotated its defensive coverage toward Olsen, particularly in the red zone.

Olsen entered play Sunday averaging about six catches and 70.4 receiving yards per game. He also had five touchdowns in his first seven games.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen does nothing Week 8
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen did nothing Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Olsen caught one pass for 16 yards. He was targeted just three times during the contest. Carolina was content to run throughout most of the game, so Olsen had a play a minimal role. No Panthers receiver turned in an exceptional game, so it was an off week for everyone.

Olsen will look for more Week 9 against the Saints.
