No slowing down Greg Olsen

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen put together his finest performance of the season in Week 5 against the Bears, as he continues to play a huge role in the team's offense.

Olsen put together his third double-digit Fantasy scoring effort of the season Sunday, this time racking up 19 points. He has been targeted at least seven times in four of five games, with five-plus catches and 69-plus yards in each as a result. And, given the Panthers' relative lack of other options in the passing game, there is little reason to think his production is bound to regress.

Olsen is on pace for career-highs in receptions (86), yards (1,043) and touchdowns (12), while also notching a career-best eight targets per game, on average. Unless Cam Newton decides to stop throwing the ball his way -- and there is little reason to think that will happen -- Olsen should be active in all formats moving forward.
