2023 Rest of Season Rankings

Alvin Kamara Note

The New Orleans Saints took a different approach with their backfield than Tampa Bay, relying heavily on Alvin Kamara in both the running and passing game in his first game back from the suspension. Kamara had a whopping 14 targets, leading to an impressive 13 receptions albeit for 33 yards, showcasing his versatility as a dual threat running back. 70% route participation. 75% snap share. 37% target share.
However, the fact that the Saints offense struggled mightily does not suggest to me that this exact usage is what we will see every week from New Orleans' offense. This offense isn't good right now, and Kamara said as much after the game. "It's been two years since we had that offense that was rolling." Woof.

Chris Olave Note

Derek Carr constantly kept missing Chris Olave, limiting him to one catch for 4 yards on 6 targets. 146 air yards converted into nothing. Woof. Are we sure that Carr is a good match for Olave a month in?
This was a concern I had entering the year. However, for the short-term would view Olave as a buy-low, as he checks off the boxes of a buy-low air yards WR. One of just 6 WRs with 500-plus air yards this season.
Olave ($6,900 on DraftKings) and Shaheed ($3,800) are intriguing buy-low DFS options as well for the upcoming Week 5 slate.
Patriots and Texans up next, both who are extremely thin at cornerback.
