Don’t look now but Greg Olsen has put together a solid quarter of a season and it is going largely unnoticed.
Analysis: Greg Olsen put up 89 receiving yards and a touchdown Sunday on 7 targets in a loss to Atlanta. Olsen now has 187 yards and 13 receptions over his last two weeks. He ranks 4th among tight ends in receiving yards and 4th in receptions yet he is only owned in a quarter of leagues out there. It really is time to add him to your roster over guys like Marcedes Lewis and Kyle Rudolph and even a Jacob Tamme. Olsen is also in the top ten in targets among all NFL tight ends and although the sample size is still a bit small all signs point to Olsen having his best season to date.
How many other tight ends are on pace for 1,000 yards and are available in three-quarters of fantasy leagues? Perhaps the best stat that I can give you is that Olsen is the most heavily targeted Carolina Panther with 31 targets on the year to Steve Smith’s 25. Yes, Greg Olsen is producing.
