Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He put in 3 full practices this week, and HC Ron Rivera said Olsen won’t be on a snap count. Still, he remains a risky fantasy play after failing to make it through the entire game last time out. Minnesota also ranks 6th in fantasy points allowed to TEs.
