Greg Olsen had a big day. We break down the fantasy implications.

Greg Olsen continued to show he is one of Cam Newton's favorite targets with six catches, 89 yards and a TD in the loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Analysis: Olsen was busy and was Cam's first read on several play calls. He led the team wit his 11 targets and was all over the field on a wide variety of routes. He has made it abundantly clear that he is a top-two option in the passing game with Brandon LaFell completely falling on his face, too. The Panthers defense is still struggling, so Cam Newton is going to have to pass to try and keep them in games. Olsen is basically a must-start tight end at this point.
