Chris Olave Week 3 Outlook - Saints at Packers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Olave leads the team with a 30% Target share and 41.2% air-yard share as the WR15 in fantasy. Olave is fifth in receiving grade and tenth in YPRR among receivers. He should lead the way in attacking the Packers deep this week. He leads the team with six deep targets. His prowess on go routes will also factor in heavily this week. Last season, Olave had a 34.8% Target share (20th), 39% TPRR (30th), and the 17th-highest YPRR on go routes (among 82 qualifying wide receivers). This matters a ton because the Packers have struggled against go routes in each of the last two seasons. Last year, Green Bay allowed the second-highest yards per attempt, third-highest adjusted completion rate, and the second-most passing touchdowns to go routes (per Fantasy Points Data). Olave has been running almost half of his routes from the slot, so he'll get plenty of reps against Keisean Nixon (88.9% catch rate and 135.6 passer rating) this week. Olave leads the team with a 31.1% first-read share (Thomas 26.7%, Shaheed 15.6%). The Packers have utilized zone coverage on 79-83% of their corner's snaps. Olave leads the team in nearly every category against zone. Week 3 Positional Value: WR1
