Panthers' Greg Olsen: Totals 41 receiving yards in Super Bowl loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greg Olsen secured four of nine targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl loss to the Broncos.

Cam Newton's favorite target turned in a rather ordinary Super Bowl performance, as both time and pass-catching opportunities were at a premium against Denver's stalwart defense. His game-long 19-yard reception did help set up Carolina's first touchdown, with Olsen creating all the yardage on his run after making the grab at the line of scrimmage. Despite the failed championship bid, Olsen commemorated a second successful campaign in as many seasons in a Carolina Panthers uniform, breaking the 1,000-yard mark through the air for the second consecutive year while also hauling in 77 receptions and recording seven touchdowns.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Snatches six passes against Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greg Olsen hauled in six of his eight targets for 113 yards in Sunday's NFC championship win over Arizona.

Olsen split the seam of Arizona's defense early in the fourth quarter for 54 yards, setting up a Carolina touchdown to put the game out of reach. Olsen has now been targeted at least six times in 10 of his last 12 games. The Carolina Panthers ' next test will be against Denver's top-rated pass defense. The health of Denver strong safety T.J. Ward, who left the AFC championship game with an ankle injury, could play a big factor into Olsen's Super Bown production.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: FInds the end zone against Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Olsen caught six passes off of six targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He briefly left the game with a shoulder injury, The Charlotte Observer reports.

Olsen made the score 31-0 in the second quarter after a tremendous leaping touchdown catch over two defenders down the left side. Olsen led the team in yards, catches and targets in 2015, and had 10 games with at least four receptions. The only major category Olsen didn't lead the team in this season was touchdowns as he scored just twice in the second half of the regular season. Passing in the red zone may be the path of least resistance next week, as Arizona ranked eighth in the NFL in fewest rushing scores surrendered with nine during the regular season, while ranking 11th with 24 through the air.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Totals 16 yards receiving in Week 17 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greg Olsen secured both of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 38-10 victory over the Bucs.

The veteran tight end posted his lowest receiving yardage total since the season opener, and the two looks he received from Cam Newton qualified as the least for Olsen in 2015. Irrespective of the quiet week, the nine-year pro will undoubtedly be one of Newton's most trusted targets in the postseason, after having had the ball thrown his way a whopping 123 times during the regular season.
