Bottom Line

Shaheed remains the deep threat for the Saints as his average target depth has continued to climb throughout his career.

Derek Carr limits Shaheed’s upside, but there are enough targets available for Shaheed to be a bigger part of the new offense on a weekly basis.

Our 2024 WR rankings have Shaheed higher than his ADP due to spike week upside.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Shaheed posted a season-long stat line of 46 catches for 719 yards and five TDs across 15 games.
  • His per-game averages were significantly improved from his rookie season (2022):
    • 5.00 targets (up from 2.83)
    • 3.07 receptions (up from 2.33)
    • 47.9 yards (up from 40.7)
    • 15.6 yards per catch (down from 17.4)
    • 0.33 TDs (up from 0.17)
  • Shaheed ranked as the PPR WR47 in total fantasy points and WR51 in points per game.
  • He missed two games last year (Weeks 13 and 14) with a right thigh injury. He didn’t miss any games due to injury in 2022.
  • He had three top-12 PPR finishes. He also had eleven WR37 or worse finishes.
  • Shaheed’s target share improved slightly from 12.6% in 2022 (89th among WRs) to 14.2% (71st among WRs).
  • Among 89 WRs with 45+ targets, Shaheed ranked 53rd in Pro Football Focus receiving grade.
  • Utilized as a deep threat, he was 11th among those 89 WRs in average target depth at 14.6 yards. This was an increase from his 2022 aDOT of 11.6 yards.
  • Shaheed did see a sharp decline in yards per route run from 2.59 in 2022 to 1.67 in 2023.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Shaheed enters his third season with the Saints under HC Dennis Allen.
  • New OC Klint Kubiak spent last year as the 49ers' passing-game coordinator
    • Last season the 49ers threw the fewest passes in the NFL at 491.
    • In Kubiak’s last OC stint for the Vikings in 2021, the team finished 12th in the league in pass attempts (604).
  • The Saints are expected to take a slight step backward. They are tied for second in the NFC South with a 7.5 win total at most sportsbooks.
  • The Saints have the 25th-highest odds to win the Super Bowl at +8000 on most sportsbooks, third-highest in the division.
  • Shaheed enters his third season at 26 years old. According to our aging curve research, the average WR with Shaheed’s career produces between 92-96% of his peak value at age-26.
  • Shaheed drew 12.1% of Saints targets in nine games with a healthy Michael Thomas last year vs. a 16.0% share in his other six. (Thomas will not be back with the Saints this season.)

Derek Carr, QB NO

2:01pm EST 2/5/24

Klint Kubiak expected to become Saints OC

Klint Kubiak is expected to be named the Saints' new OC, according to multiple reports. Kubiak is currently the 49ers' passing-game coordinator, so the move can't become official until after the Super Bowl. The 36-year-old son of Gary Kubiak has 10 seasons of NFL coaching experience. That includes serving as Vikings OC back in 2021. That team ranked 12th in total yards and 14th in points, ranking near the middle of the pack in run/pass split.

Saints WR Chris Olave (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Giants. WR Michael Thomas remains on IR, so New Orleans is down to WRs Rashid Shaheed, A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden, Keith Kirkwood, and Marquez Callaway. Shaheed is the best fantasy bet and has some exciting upside as a WR3 today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter both call Saints WR Chris Olave (ankle) a game-time decision for today's meeting with the Giants. But Rapoport adds that "there is not a lot of optimism that he can go." That's not a surprise after Olave missed practice all week. With WR Michael Thomas still on IR, Olave's absence would leave Rashid Shaheed as the best fantasy bet in New Orleans' WR corps. A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden, Keith Kirkwood, and Marquez Callaway would round out the group. Olave's absence could also mean bigger roles for TE Taysom Hill and RB Alvin Kamara in the passing game. We've removed Olave from the Week 15 Rankings and updated Saints projections.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) is not listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He was a full-go in Friday’s practice, so he shouldn’t be limited in this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. Shaheed is an upside WR4 option and will get a boost if WR Chris Olave misses with his ankle injury.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Giants. We'll keep you updated on Shaheed's status over the next few days.

Shaheed remained a legit deep threat in 2023, helping produce six outings of 60+ yards. New Orleans used the exclusive rights free agent tag to retain him for 2024.
