2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-09-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Olsen caught 73 passes for 816 yards in 2013. The only thing holding him back from being an elite tight end is a lack of touchdowns throughout the years. The former Miami Hurricanes pass-catcher comes into the season as Newton's most reliable and trustworthy option. Olsen's targets, catches and yards may very well rise even higher. The additions of rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veteran Jerricho Cotchery may only hurt his touchdown opportunities. That, coupled with Mike Tolbert and Cam Newton's goal-line running, does not bode well for Olsen getting into the end zone more often this season. Even without much touchdown production, Olsen is a Top 10 tight end and should be drafted as a starter across all formats.

Editor's note: Olsen's popularity as a mid-ranged TE1 is likely to grow. The concussion concerns for Washington's Jordan Reed, the advanced age of Dallas' Jason Witten and the presence and addition of Baltimore's Owen Daniels taking looks away from Dennis Pitta are all negative points of view. Detroit's Eric Ebron is an unproven rookie, Minnesota's Kyle Rudolph has a shaky QB situation and the list goes on. On the other hand, Olsen figures to be an even larger part of an offense which lacks a desirable backfield or any reliable receiver.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
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.
