ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS
"I haven't seen any tight ends who run like he can," Brown said of Olsen. "He's got great hands, he's a big target, and he's a pretty good route runner. That's always a weapon when you have someone in the middle of the field who can get chunk yardage. The only way you can really play someone that is bigger than you like that is you have to be underneath them. That leaves the middle of the field open, so he can use his speed. He's a tough matchup." While Olsen mainly has been running with the second team in training camp, his impressive play has begun to get him more work with the starters. Because of his reliable hands, expect the rookie to be targeted often this year.
