Seattle Seahawks TE Greg Olsen was held without a catch against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Sept. 20. He was targeted once.
Huddle Up: Olsen saw an early pass deflect off his hands for a pick six and was not targeted again. The veteran feels like a reserve option at best right now for those that have the bench space to carry a second TE.

Seattle Seahawks TE Greg Olsen registered four catches for 24 yards and a touchdown on his four targets in his team debut in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Olsen's presence has pushed Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister to the back burner in the Emerald City. As far as fantasy value, Olsen remains more of a TE2 at this point of his career, although he could re-emerge as a useful option when bye weeks start to kick in.

Seattle Seahawks TE Greg Olsen's work with QB Russell Wilson this offseason is evident in practice, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'I'm really, really fired up about Greg,' Carroll said.
Huddle Up: Olsen's recent injury history is a concern, but don't forget that Wilson was able to help Jimmy Graham turn back the clock, and he made Will Dissly into a legitimate weapon. Olsen has TE1 potential if he can stay on the field.

Seattle Seahawks TE Greg Olsen 'will make a very fast transition' into the offense, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Olsen's age isn't on his side, but we saw Russell Wilson turn Jimmy Graham back into a force in the red zone. Wilson could do the same for Olsen, making him worth a look as a low-end TE1.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is signing a one-year, $7 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. The deal includes $5.5 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Olsen turns 35 in March and has a history of injuries in recent seasons, which makes him a risky option in any fantasy setting. The addition helps QB Russell Wilson the most and hurts TE Will Dissly (Achilles), whose outlook already was questionable after consecutive seasons ending due to major injuries. Olsen is a fringe starter in 12-team fantasy leagues but has limited upside, substantial risk, and figures to be inconsistent given all of Seattle's other ways to attack.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is having contract negotiations with the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. Olsen met with all three teams over the last two weeks.
Huddle Up: Olsen has not officially said if he will play in 2020, but it appears he likely will play at least one more season. He likely would be the starter for all three teams and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues.

Free-agent TE Greg Olsen (Panthers) is visiting the Washington Redskins through Monday, Feb. 10.
Huddle Up: Olsen is a brittle option without a lot of upside, but he still has some TE2 clout in PPR leagues.
