Greg Olsen led the Panthers in receiving against New York. We break down the fantasy implications.

Coming off a week with just one reception, Greg Olsen pleasantly surprised owners by catching seven passes for 98 yards on a total of 14 targets against the Giants. Cam Newton targeted his No. 1 tight end far more than anyone else on the field.

Fantasy Impact: Here's the Olsen we were expecting to see in 2012. His stats could have been even better if he could have held onto a pass at the goal line late in the game. Still, his rapport with Newton bodes well for his future in your lineup, so hopefully you kept him around after such an awful performance in Week 2.
