Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers vs. Dallas Cowboys

Olsen missed nearly 11 games last season but in the last three games of the season, it was clear who had returned to become Cam Newton’s favorite target. That still didn’t mean he pulled them in, but it’s hard to look past 27 targets in those three games. Aside from that stat, throw the rest of 2017 in the dumpster and know that 2018 is a new season, one where Olsen begins the season at full strength and a bounce back to becoming one of the best tight ends in the league, even at age 33. As for the Cowboys, they were average against the pass, but in their last nine games allowed touchdowns to opposing tight ends. It’s a position that can exploit this defense, so Week 1 of the 2018 season promises to be a return to form for Olsen. – Ernie Estrella
