Bold Prediction #15 – Greg Olsen will be the 4th best TE in 2013!

In 2012, Greg Olsen finished the season as the 6th best TE in the league. Most people didn’t see it coming as he set career highs in both receptions and yards. Yet it seems most believe it was a fluke. ESPN is quoted saying “he’s best suited to be a reliable backup.” Even Rotoworld says something vauge about being “the backend of a TE1.” Real specific guys… What is a backend TE1? Technically 6th is backend in 10 owner leagues… There is a big difference between 6th best and 12th best. So here you have it, we believe Olsen will far exceed these expectations and finish behind only Graham, Gronkowski (if healthy), and Vernon Davis.

Greg Olsen will continue to be Cam Newton’s #2 option in their pass attack. Steve Smith will continue to be the #1 option, and rightfully so as he’s second to only Megatron in 20+ yard receptions the past two years. But even so, Cam will need more than one option and LaFell, Ginn, and Hixon aren’t exactly thrilling options.

As of right now Greg Olsen is coming off the board as the 14th best TE. You now know this is ridiculous! Make sure you target him a round or two before his ADP and you will be greatly rewarded! I expect another strong year for Olsen in the 2013 season. He’ll have close to 900 yards and 8+ TDs; thus setting career highs in both categories in back to back seasons.
