Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen is listed as probable for the team's Week 7 matchup against the St. Louis Rams. Olsen is dealing with a foot injury that had him questionable leading up to the team's Week 6 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
Olsen caught two passes for 19 yards in that game, and was clearly limited with the injury. Olsen hadn't had less than four receptions and 50 yards in a game this season prior to Week 6, but the Panthers did stop passing once they were ahead, which happened quickly.
Up until Week 6, Olsen was a surprisingly strong tight end in fantasy. The seven-year pro has had up and down portions throughout his career, but this was looking to be a strong season. We'll see on Sunday if he can rebound or if the injury will hang around.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners have to be pleased with Olsen's production thus far, even if he has only caught one touchdown pass. He should be active on Sunday against the Rams, though whether or not he'll still look a bit hampered by the injury is anyone's guess. There's been no word of a setback, so he may be your best option regardless.
