I say Davis.

NO D won't be too scary week 1. RG3 is still a rookie, and will likely want to find his TE when he gets in some tough spots.

Fred Davis, Fred Davis, Fred Davis...I feel like he can be a top 5 tight end this year and with a matchup against that porous NO defence, you just cant bench him

I think Davis but Olsen isnt a bad option either. Im apart of the Olsen camp that thinks he will be elite this year
Eastmont League 10-3 (2nd Seed)
Wenatchee League 9-4 (2nd Seed)
Urine Trouble League 6-7 (6th seed boooya!!!)

I agree with previous post. Davis is the safe no brainer but I think Olsen will be just as solid this year.

I'd roll with Olsen. RGIII didn't seem to a lot of chemistry with Davis in the preseason. I think that will change, but I want to see it happen first. Cam threw to his TE's a ton last year. With Shockey gone Olsen will get all of those receptions. He could easily be a top 5 TE this year.

I like Olsen a lot this year, but think Davis is the better play for now. Good luck this week.

We have been hearing good things about Davis, but Its hard to say whats going to happen with a rookie QB. I know its only been preseason but I haven't seen or heard much about RG3 and Davis' rapport with each other. I agree with the other posts and like Olsen a lot this year as well and we already know what kind of connection Newton and Olsen have. Plus Olsen doesn't have to share time with Shockey this season so his targets will increase this year. Go with Olsen.

I'm leaning towards Olsen for some reason despite the Davis love.
