Greg Olsen is the top receiving target on the best team in the NFL. Without any proven receivers on the team, Olsen has gotten consistent targets throughout this season. Now that Jimmy Graham and Gronk are hurt, there aren’t too many big name tightends left in the game, but Olsen is definitely an elite tight end in this league. Oh, and he is also going up against the Saints defense, ranked 31st in the league in passing defense and overall defense.
