Greg Olsen did not have a good game in terms of stats but he did have a great game overall. Olsen was a blocker and pretty much extra help for the offensive line most of the game. I know fantasy players hated it but fans of the Panthers better love it because it saved Cam Newton from more punishment. Olsen had a good touchdown catch called back off a phantom offensive pass interference call. I was pretty mad at that call because there was literally nothing that Olsen did wrong there (here is looking at you NFL).

I have Olsen on a few of my fantasy teams and that game did not help me out much. I am happier with a win from the Panthers than a win in my fantasy leagues. I think Olsen will still have a great year just not as good as some were thinking. I like the idea the Panthers have it just relies on the wide receivers too much. The Panthers will figure it out though I am sure.
