WR Chris Olave led the Saints in targets (10), receptions (8), and yards (112) in Sunday's narrow victory over the Titans. He drew 30.3% of QB Derek Carr's pass attempts for the game. WR Michael Thomas checked in next, catching 5 of 8 targets for 61 yards. WR Rashid Shaheed delivered a 5-89-1 receiving line on 6 targets. TE Juwan Johnson (3-36 on 5 targets) was the only other Saint to garner more than 2 looks. It was a strong start for the New Orleans passing game overall, but also quite possibly the best matchup they'll face in that area all season. Tennessee was the second-best scoring matchup for WRs last season, according to our strength of schedule formula; sixth-best for QBs. The only matchup more favorable for WRs in 2022 was Carolina, which New Orleans faces in Week 2.
Saints WR Chris Olave (concussion) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He still has some work to do to clear the protocol but at least has a chance to play vs. the Lions on Sunday. We'll update his progress again tomorrow.
Saints WR Chris Olave (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. So he's made some good progress through the protocol, giving him a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Lions. We'll update Olave's status again tomorrow.
Saints WR Chris Olave put up stellar numbers in Week 12 vs. the Falcons. The second-year wideout hauled in 7 of his team-leading 9 targets for 114 receiving yards, the most he’s logged in a game in 2023. Olave is now averaging 10 targets per game since Week 6 with just two games of fewer than 16 PPR points in that span. He unfortunately left with a concussion in the third quarter of action, so we won’t be too sure of his availability for Week 13 vs. the Lions. Assuming he’s able to pass through the NFL’s concussion protocol before next Sunday, he’ll be in a great spot against a Detroit defense that ranks as the 11th-best WR matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed this season.
Saints WR Chris Olave has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Falcons with a concussion. That ends a big day for Olave, who had caught seven of nine targets for 114 yards. This is his third documented concussion. We'll track Olave's progress through the protocol this week, but he's more likely than not to miss Week 13.
Saints WR Chris Olave caught 6 of 9 targets for 94 receiving yards and a TD in Week 10 vs. the Vikings. Perhaps the most interesting note from this performance is that the second-year wideout had a considerably better connection with QB Jameis Winston on Sunday. Olave had only a single 15-yard catch prior to QB Derek Carr (concussion, shoulder) exiting the contest in the third quarter. With Winston in tow, he accumulated a receiving line of 7-79-1. It’s too soon to say if there will be any significance to this fact, given that the Saints are heading into their bye week. However, if Carr is unable to recover from injury by Week 12 vs. the Falcons, it might spell good news for Olave. It’ll be important to follow Carr’s progress over the next couple of weeks.
