2013 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Nov-04-2013 by Matt De Lima
If you missed out on Jimmy Graham, it may be best to wait for Greg Olsen. The former Miami Hurricanes stud is essentially the No. 2 wide receiver in Charlotte. He should finish close behind Steve Smith in targets, receptions and most of the other receiving stats. A year ago he caught a career-high 69 receptions on 104 targets for 843 yards and five TDs. Assuming Cam Newton continues to develop and grow as a quarterback, Olsen's numbers should continue to trend upward.
UPDATE (11/4): Olsen's strong grip on the No. 2 fantasy receiver role in Carolina is tenuous at best. He's been missing out on targets typically designated for him as they head to DeAngelo Williams, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn. He has scored two TDs in his last two games though and this has helped his point totals recover. Olsen is a low TE1, so use him as such.

2013 Mock Draft Results
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
|9.10||FFToolbox - Scott Atkins - One of my projected top tight ends this season, by process of elimination. The Panthers interestingly didn't really address additional weapons for Cam Newton, so we'll see more Olsen, Smith and LaFell this season.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
|8.02||BFD Fantasy - I'm a bit too high on Greg I guess because all the drafts I've seen are treating Greg like a slug. He's not and I'm thrilled to have him as a flex option.|
