Chris Olave Performance Helps Saints Secure Victory

Chris Olave hauled in 6 of his 11 targets for 86 yards in a 20-17 victory over the Panthers on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

Olave's longest reception, a 42-yard bomb in the third quarter, showcased his deep-threat potential. While the lack of touchdowns is a slight concern for fantasy managers, Olave's consistent target share and yardage totals keep him firmly in the WR2 conversation. He is proving to be a dependable asset in the Saints' passing game. Looking ahead to Week 3, Olave and the Saints will face off against the Green Bay Packers, providing another opportunity for the young receiver to shine.

Chris Olave operates as Saints' top receiver in Week 1

Fantasy Impact

The return of Michael Thomas proved to be a non-issue for Olave, who still out-produced all of his Saints teammates. The second-year wideout formed a quick rapport with Derek Carr and should be viewed as a WR2 in fantasy football going forward.
