Tough one. I live in NC and a Panther fan. I'm leaning towards Olsen more, but not sure if its because I'm a fan or if I think its the best choice. WIth Shockey gone, I believe that Olsen will get a ton of looks this year and find the end zone quite often as well.

thanks for the help on mine. My league doesnt start strictly a TE, but i'll give my 2 cents anyway. Just take it for what its worth...

I think Davis should start. Wash vs NO in week 1 so they should be playing from behind and having to pass. Usually a TE is easier for a rookie QB to find. RG3 wont get a terrible pass rush this week so should have a little time to throw.

As for Olsen, i think id wait and see on him. Not sure his role in that offense yet. I think they'd prefer to run the ball and play action to Smith (and maybe the TE). But that could be a low scoring game. I dont see how the saints/washington game can be low scoring unless brees gets hurt. (God forbid)

Definitely Davis. RG3 will be looking early and often to FD.

with regards to my post about bradshaw vs. Lloyd, does bradshaw's health and D. Wilson not scare you?

Bradshaws health does worry me some, and I picked up Wilson as my RB4 thinking he takes over as the feature back mid/late season IF Bradshaw goes down.

That being said.... Bradshaws still a upper tier fantasy back, which has become a rare commodity.I drafted Lloyd and like his upside with the Pats but there's ALOT of mouths to feed in NE. I'd hold onto him as a flex play weekly untill you find the perfect deal or see what Lloyd does. As long as Bradshaws healthy you'll get value in return ( you'll likely be starting Marshall/Dez weekly at WR and Antonio Brown should be your 3rd option.)

I'd go with Olsen. I think he'll have a good year in an offense that will put up points. I'm not sold on RG3 or the Redskins offense to produce. Good Luck and thanks for the help!

This is a very close decision, but I believe you should go with Fred Davis this week. This will be RGIII's first official NFL game and that should mean plenty of looks for his tight end.
