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.
