Panthers TE Greg Olsen told reporters Wednesday that he's "been 100% for months" after last year's foot injuries. "I wasn’t and am not restricted at all," he added. Olsen has missed 16 games over the past 2 seasons, breaking his right foot twice and rupturing the plantar fascia in that same foot. Even when he's been on the field, his production has been down. Olsen has averaged 9.2 PPR points in 12 full games over the last 2 years -- a mark that would have ranked 14th among TEs in 2018. We're curious to get a look at him in training camp and the preseason but aren't currently banking on him returning to TE1-level production. The good news is that Olsen is cheap in fantasy drafts, with an ADP in the 13th round. He's a fine shot at that price.
Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He didn't practice all week and isn't a lock to return for Week 15. Ian Thomas will serve as Carolina's lead TE this weekend. He averaged 5.3 targets, 3.9 catches and 35.5 yards in the 9 games Olsen either missed or left early last year.
Panthers TE Greg Olsen (concussion) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's not going to play against the Falcons this weekend, making TE Ian Thomas a spot-start option. Thomas averaged 3.9 catches and 35.5 yards in the 9 games Olsen either missed or left early last season.
Panthers HC Ron Rivera confirmed after Sunday's loss to the Redskins that TE Greg Olsen is in the concussion protocol. It's his 3rd documented concussion. We'll track Olsen's progress this coming week, but consider him no better than 50/50 for Week 14. Olsen's absence would leave lead TE duties to Ian Thomas, who averaged 3.9 catches and 35.5 yards in the 9 games Olsen missed all of most of last season.
Panthers TE Greg Olsen took a hit to the head in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins. He appeared to briefly lose consciousness but was eventually able to walk off the field. He's going for a concussion test. Stay tuned for an update.
Panthers TE Greg Olsen (back) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. Olsen is safe to keep in fantasy lineups vs. an Arizona defense that allowed a 6-131-1 line to T.J. Hockenson in Week 1 and an 8-112-1 to Mark Andrews last week.
