Dynasty Rookie Report Card: Chris Olave and Sam Howell

We break down two rookies who performed well last weekend.

Sam Howell

Each week throughout the season, I’ll cover at least two rookies in the Rookie Report Card and try to always include the biggest performers from that particular week. On top of reviewing my expectations for each player coming into the league and how well he’s lived up to those expectations at the NFL level to this point, I’ll grade the player in three categories. Those categories are performance to date, rookie season potential and long-term upside.

The series continues as we take a look at a pair of rookies that finished their first season's in the NFL with some fireworks, Chris Olave and Sam Howell.

Chris Olave , WR NO

Week 18 Stats: five receptions, 60 yards, one touchdown (12 targets)

Chris Olave was one of my favorite prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft. He was incredible at Ohio State and rarely got enough praise for his work because he was consistently competing with the likes of Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba, among others. Nevertheless, he was a touchdown scoring machine for the Buckeyes, scoring 32 touchdowns in his final three seasons in Columbus.

Hey Dan, I appreciate you and the article but I’d encourage you to perhaps rethink the statement ´Although he’s not a dual threat quarterback, Howell is elusive inside the pocket and willing to run’. Sam Howell had 800+ rushing yards and 11 rushing tds in his final season at NC… that is a sick rushing season for a rb let alone a qb…he is 100% a huge dual threat qb. Watch this video and tell me I’m wrong. https://youtu.be/MDQbpX8-nSw
