Greg Olsen has an underwhelming fantasy afternoon

Rob Carr

Should fantasy owners hitch their wagon to the Miami tight end?

Greg Olsen had an OK day against the Redskins with five receptions for 48 yards and no TDs on Sunday.

The Miami product had 347 yards coming into today's game and has only scored once. His longest reception in just 34 yards on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Olsen led the team in targets on Sunday with nine and Brandon LaFell being out certainly helped his cause. The Panthers didn't really run a lot of plays, which is somewhat surprising since the Panthers have been a turnstile in stopping their opponents.

The schedule softens for the Panthers and we wouldn't mind starting Olsen as a low-end TE1 for the rest of the year. Brandon LaFell is expected to return, but it's not expected to be a crippling blow to Olsen's value.
