Greg Olsen's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Greg Olsen to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 70 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Evan Engram and ahead of Austin Hooper. He has averaged 6.19 fantasy points in his past 15 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 7 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#9) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #9 ranked tight end. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 81%, he is the #10 most highly owned tight end. Greg Olsen is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #10 fantasy position rank.
