Fantasy Football Sleepers 2011: Greg Olsen to Be Offensive Star in Carolina

Were Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen still a Chicago Bear, his designation as a fantasy football sleeper in 2011 would be ridiculous.

Now that he's with the Panthers, however, his services have been undervalued simply because of the offensive players that surround him.

This makes him an excellent value for anyone looking for a highly productive tight end in a later round, even among this year's impressive depth at the position.

He has over 100 receiving yards already this preseason, and it is fair to say that he will remain a top target for quarterback Cam Newton throughout the regular season.

It is rare to see a player go from must-draft status to a sleeper in the course of one year, but that seems to be the case with Olsen.

He is a reliable pick guaranteed to get you points, and this year, you can find him at amazing value.
