Since his Week 6 return, the Panthers have morphed from a run-heavy team into one of the league's most pass-happy offenses.
#Panthers situation-neutral pass rate:— Pat Thorman (@Pat_Thorman) October 30, 2018

Weeks 6-8: 64.7% (7th)
Greg Olsen returned Week 6
Olsen's re-arrival has been huge for other Carolina fantasy options. Since his return, Devin Funchess has looked like a startable wideout again -- with 14 catches for 163 yards and two scores. Even rookie wideout D.J. Moore is starting to thrive, putting up his two best games in terms of yardage with Olsen in the lineup (59 and 90 yards), while adding a season-high five catches during his last game.
The veteran tight end's fantasy impact goes much further than the box score as the entire Panthers' offense benefits with him around.
