Greg Olsen Is Back

Greg Olsen played 92 percent of snaps in Week 14, but he was not involved in the passing game. That changed this week as Olsen slayed the Packers on Sunday.

It was his first big day for fantasy all year, and boy did he make it count. Olsen turned his team-high 12 targets into 9 receptions for 116 yards and a touchdown. Not bad for a guy not too far removed from foot surgery.

In Olsen's resurgent game, Cam Newton threw for his highest yardage total since the team's Week 11 bye, and it was Cam's fourth-highest yardage total of the season.

What's even crazier is that Olsen's 116 yards were the second-most any Panthers receiver has had in a game all year. Remember Ed Dickson's ridiculous Week 5 performance?

The Panthers clearly missed Olsen -- maybe even as much as we missed the reliable tight end in fantasy football. But Olsen is healthy and ready to roll for fantasy championship week.
