My thoughts are that you should try this in the Trade/waiver forum.
I don't know that another WR is what you need. Work a package out for a stud RB. Say trade Winslow and Addai for X.
I like Olsen to be a solid play each week. Great skills and Orton knows he exists.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

We have been waiting for Olsen for a while now. MAYBE it was just playcalling that prevented him from arriving sooner. Maybe it was Olsen himself. All I know is, last year Berrian and Bradley were supposed to be the downfield threads. They're both gone. This year, Hester, Lloyd, and Booker are supposed to be. Hester draws a lot of cover, and he's a small target. Lloyd is hurt. Booker's not that fast. Looks like Olsen may be getting his shot. And if it continues to work, I think he's a solid play for the rest of the season, and could really step up next year.

It could also just be a fluke. You can not count me among those who suddenly believe that Orton is going to be putting up ~300 a week. His average probably isn't even 200 right now.

There's consistency amongst threads that Olsen is the waiver wire pickup for TE's right now. I think he will start to emerge with the comments made above. 80 yards rec last week and a td before. Picked this waiver with the idea he may take over for Gonzo after the bye.

I'm starting him this week with Heath Miller on bye. Hope it works out.

I'm also starting him this week. I'm using him until Shockey comes back and depending on if Shockey stays healthy/performs I think he's a great "fill in".

I love Olsen as a keeper and he'll have decent production this year but Desmond Clark is still in the picture in will get his fair share of receptions. Of course, with the Bears not having a single receiver who could start for any other team in the league, I'd say Olsen AND Clark are worth starting (in fantasy).
