Tight End: Greg Olsen

Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina Panthers
6 Receptions, 76 Yards, 13 Targets, 1 Touchdown
Performance: 79, NEP: +10.31

It may have taken a while to get Olsen going in this game, but he turned it on late to finish as this week's top-performing tight end, per numberFire's metrics. Olsen finished the game hauling in 6 receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown.

Olsen didn't really starting heating up until Derek Anderson came in relief of Cam Newton (concussion). Anderson targeted Olsen relentlessly (32% of his throws), and overall for the game, Olsen saw a combined 13 targets.

Olsen finished as the overall TE2 in fantasy scoring this week, just behind Jordan Reed and his two-touchdown performance. Olsen has now made this list twice in the first four weeks of the season. At such a volatile position, this probably isn't Olsen's last appearance this season.
