Greg Olsen injury update: Fantasy status unchanged despite missed practice

US PRESSWIRE

Greg Olsen is expected to suit up for the Carolina Panthers against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. He was given a rest from practice Wednesday, but practiced fully Thursday and Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Grge Olsen is expected to play for the Carolina Panthers against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The veteran tight end was held out of practice Wednesday for maintenance, but was able to practice fully on Thursday and Friday. He isn't expected to be limited.

Olsen has been a solid contributor to the Panthers in recent weeks. He has had at least 42 yards receiving in each of his last eight games, and has had two touchdown receptions over his last four. He has been targeted 21 times over the last three weeks.

Fantasy Impact: Olsen is a solid low-end starter for fantasy owners still in need of production in Week 17. He is worth targeting if you're still desperate this late in the season. The Panthers will be missing the playoffs this season, so there is no reason to expect them to rest their starters. Olsen can be placed in your fantasy lineup without reservation.
