  • Saints' Chris Olave: WRs to Start

    We'll see what the final injury report looks like for New Orleans, but on Wednesday the Saints had Michael Thomas (toe) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) out for practice after both were injured in Week 3. If either one sits against the Vikings in London, Olave could be amazing. And for the past two weeks, he's been special with 26 targets for 14 catches and 227 yards. He leads all receivers in air yards at 443, and Jameis Winston is loving his big-play potential. The Vikings have allowed four receivers to score at least 13 PPR points in the past two games, and Olave should be considered a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues for this week.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Almost 150 yards in loss

    Olave caught nine of 13 targets for 147 yards in Sunday's 22-14 loss to the Panthers. Olave was easily the most productive Saints receiver in the first half, as he went into the break with 72 receiving yards while his teammates combined for only 40. He topped his first-half yardage total by three after halftime, benefiting from a pass-heavy game script and the early departures of both Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle). Olave has been targeted 26 times over the past two weeks, and the rookie first-round pick could be in for even heavier volume against the Vikings in Week 4 if either injured veteran wideout sits out in London.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    It was exciting to see Olave come alive in Week 2 against Tampa Bay with five catches for 80 yards on 13 targets. Hopefully he can build on that performance against the Panthers. Now, he's just a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in the majority of leagues because he's still sharing the field with Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry. And Carolina has yet to allow a receiver to score a touchdown in games against Cleveland and the Giants. But Jameis Winston is starting to look for Olave now, and that should lead to plenty of production in the future.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Paces pass catchers in loss

    Olave secured five of 13 targets for 80 yards in the Saints' 20-10 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also lost a fumble. Olave's yardage and target tallies led the Saints on the afternoon, making it a solid encore performance for the rookie after a 3-41 effort in Week 1 that included a two-point conversion catch. Olave showed off his speed on his game-long 51-yard grab, but with Jameis Winston revealed to be playing through multiple back fractures, it remains to be seen if it will be the latter or Andy Dalton targeting Olave in a Week 3 road battle against the Panthers.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Modest showing in Week 1 win

    Olave secured all three targets for 41 yards and brought in a two-point conversion pass in the Saints' 27-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday. The rookie played a clear second fiddle to veterans Jarvis Landry and Michael Thomas on the afternoon, but Olave still found a way to make a modest mark and did have a key two-point grab early in the fourth quarter to bring the Saints within eight points at the time. Given his talent and rookie status, there's plenty of reason to believe his role will grow substantially in short order. Olave's next opportunity to build up his numbers comes in a tough Week 2 home matchup against the Buccaneers next Sunday.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Sleeper WRs

    With Michael Thomas possibly limited after dealing with a hamstring injury in training camp, Olave could emerge as the top target for Jameis Winston in this matchup with the Falcons. Thomas will likely command plenty of attention anyway if he's on the field, and hopefully we can see Olave in some favorable matchups against a Falcons defense that was No. 6 in Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers last year. He's worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in deeper leagues.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    I'm not sure what's going to happen with Chris Godwin (knee) this week, so look for Tom Brady to lean on Jones and Russell Gage if Godwin is out or limited. Both should be heavily involved anyway, along with Mike Evans, and we'll see if we get an answer on if Jones or Gage will be the preferred Fantasy option moving forward. Most likely, while Jones is healthy, he should have an edge. For this week, consider him a high-end No. 3 Fantasy option, especially if Godwin can't play.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Plays alongside Winston

    Olave caught his only target for 19 yards in Friday's 27-10 preseason win over the Chargers. Olave's only catch came on the opening drive on a pass thrown by starting quarterback Jameis Winston. The rookie first-round pick should see substantial playing time in the regular season right away in a Saints receiving corps that also features Jarvis Landry and Michael Thomas, the latter who is recovering from a hamstring injury heading into the Sept. 11 season opener in Atlanta.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Catches lone target Saturday

    Olave caught his only target for four yards in Saturday's preseason opener against the Texans. Olave drew the start and logged 15 offensive snaps in his preseason debut, but the rookie first-rounder saw just one target on a short dump-off from reserve quarterback Ian Book. Despite the absences of fellow receivers Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry, Olave's lack of volume in the Saints' first preseason contest shouldn't be a concern.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Big Easy bound

    The Saints selected Olave in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 11th overall. New Orleans made the most of its draft capital, using the 16th pick along with a pair of mid-round selections to trade up for Olave out of Ohio State. He's an excellent fit in the Big Easy as the Saints had a need for a legitimate option in the passing game opposite fellow Buckeye Michael Thomas. The 6-foot Olave set the school's all-time touchdown record with 35 over four seasons. In terms of tools, Olave is silky smooth as a route runner, but he isn't just crafty; he runs a 4.39-second 40-yard dash, which suggests that the downfield ability he demonstrated at Ohio State can translate at the next level. Regardless of New Orleans' direction at quarterback, Olave is set up to have a strong fantasy projection as a rookie.
