Greg Olsen TE CAR 17 Hrs

Olsen had one catch on three targets for 21 yards Sunday against the Browns.

Coming off one of his best games of the season (10 catches on 13 targets for 110 yards against the Bucs), Olsen put up an absolute dud, with his 21 yards his second-lowest total of the season. He's a boom-or-bust type player that went the wrong way Sunday, but he'll look to bounce back in Week 17 against the Falcons, who are allowing the most passing yards per game this season.

Olsen (knee) had 10 catches on 13 targets for 110 yards during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

Despite the change in quarterback to Derek Anderson, with Cam Newton out with a back injury, Olsen posted his second consecutive game with 10 catches. He's been very solid in two games with Anderson under center, catching 18 passes on 24 targets for 193 yards and a touchdown, both contests coming against Tampa Bay. Up next is a Week 16 matchup against the Browns, and while it remains unclear who will be the starting quarterback, Olsen has shown an ability to produce with either option.

Olsen (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Olsen has been a reliable target all year long for the Panthers, and the absence of Cam Newton due to a back injury this week isn't overly concerning - Olsen racked up eight catches for 83 yards and a score in Week 1 this season, a game in which Derek Anderson started for the Panthers. Feel free to roll with Olsen as you normally would.

Olsen (knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Olsen had another strong game last week and will look to keep up his season-long consistency Sunday against Tampa Bay's mediocre pass defense. The biggest downside for Olsen this week is the absence of Cam Newton, who had been targeting his top tight end frequently. Here's hoping Derek Anderson will continue to look Olsen's way often.

Olsen (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Olsen's knee injury is ailing him for a second consecutive week, but the tight end has shrugged off injuries on occasion this season and still produced at an elite level. On Sunday, he'll attempt to repeat his Week 1 performance against a Buccaneers' squad that allowed him to romp for eight catches (on 11 targets) for 83 yards and one touchdown.

Olsen (undisclosed) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Olsen dealt with a knee injury last week, which may have lingered into the current week of preparation. The ailment didn't quell his relevance in the passing game, though, as he racked up 10 catches (on 11 targets) for 72 yards and one touchdown in Week 14. While the impetus for Wednesday's absence should be revealed in the near future, expect his availability for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers to clear up by week's end.

Olsen (knee) had 10 catches on 11 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-10 win over the Saints.

Olsen tied a season-high with his 11 targets, a mark he's reached four different times this season. His touchdown ended a six-game scoreless drought, and he's now been targeted 31 times in the last three games. With that many passes being thrown his way, particularly in the red zone, Olsen is peaking at a solid time for fantasy owners. Up next is a Week 15 matchup against a Bucs defense that Olsen had eight catches on 11 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown against back in Week 1.

Despite Carolina's offensive struggles, Olsen's usage and production has remained fairly reliable this season, and he will be safe to deploy against New Orleans' 28th-ranked pass defense.

Olsen (knee, questionable) should be able to play Sunday against the Saints, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer.

Olsen (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, but head coach Ron Rivera expects him to play, the Charlotte Observer's Joe Person reports.

In a frustrating season for the Panthers, Olsen keeps chugging along, averaging 80 receiving yards over his last three games. He hasn't scored since Week 6, however, and the Saints have allowed just one opposing tight end to score since Week 1.
