Great write up, and I couldn’t agree more on Olave. I’ve been trading down to 1.06 or 1.07 in any leagues I have pick 1.02-1.05, and am taking him over Jamo even, which I constantly get criticized for, but I honestly believe Olave will have a better career than Jamo. I think he will have the best rookie year of all the top rookie WRs(although the Landry signing hurts him now,) but I believe Olave can have an ALMOST Justin Jefferson like affect on the Saints offense. Probably not as good of stats as JJ’s rookie year, but similar usage and affect IMO

Agreed, I think he’s vastly underrated, has everything I’m looking for in a safe prospect except sheer size, and he’s not really small either. I also don’t hate the situation or the presence of MT or Landry. He’ll still get a healthy dose of targets and gets to work on his craft before having to worry about facing the top cornerback every week. Just a few days after the draft, he was already privately working out with MT, love that work ethic too.

Snagged him over Wilson at 1.06 hopefully I made the right decision
