Chris Olave News

  • Chris Olave strikes again · Nov 21, 2022

    Saints rookie receiver Chris Olave had five catches for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Saints win over the Rams.

    The New Orleans offense has been hard to watch for much of this season, but Olave has somehow found a way to be consistently productive. Now sporting a 51/760/3 line on the season, it seems a given the rookie will post a 1,000-yard season and solidify himself as a top-five rookie in dynasty leagues. While some rookies got more attention early in the process, Olave has proven to be a long-term asset moving forward and his ranking of WR14 justifies that.

  • Chris Olave a ROY candidate · Oct 24, 2022

    Saints rookie receiver Chris Olave produced 106 yards on 7-of-14 receiving in week seven and could be considered the frontrunner for offensive Rookie of the Year (ROY)

    Olave has produced a 32/495/2 line and still has competition for top rookie honors but Breece Hall suffered a potentially season-ending knee injury in week seven and Drake London, fantasy's top rookie wideout, has withered on the vine in Atlanta's poor passing offense. As we near the mid-point of the 2022 NFL season, Olave will need to hold off impressive runners Dameon Pierce, Kenneth Walker and a surging George Pickens but, in any case, Olave is putting together a fine rookie campaign. He's listed as DLF's WR16 and is rising.

  • Chris Olave a fast riser · Oct 15, 2022

    Saints receiver Chris Olave's value has been on rising quickly in the dynasty format.

    Olave's ADP has risen from 60 in September to 30 in October while his DLF ranking now shows a WR16 value, placing him close behind fellow rookie receivers Drake London (WR13) and Garrett Wilson (WR14). With touchdowns in weeks four and five and a 25/389/2 stat line through five weeks, he is on pace to eclipse 80 receptions and 1,000 yards in his rookie season. It's not out of the question the emerging WR1 finishes as the top-ranked rookie receiver when the dust settles from 2022. Fantasy coaches selecting Olave in the second-half of 2022 dynasty rookie drafts appear to have struck gold on a young player with a long production runway.

  • Chris Olave scores again · Oct 10, 2022

    Saints receiver Chris Olave scored for the second time in two weeks in the team's win over the Seahawks in week five.

    Olave exited the contest with a concussion suffered during his touchdown reception. On the season, he has produced an impressive 25/389/2 stat-line as a rookie and remains, arguably, the primary weapon in the passing game, at least while Michael Thomas continues to battle injury. Listed as DLF's WR21, Olave is looking the part of an exciting upside talent at the position with a long career ahead.

  • Chris Olave busy again · Oct 2, 2022

    Chris Olave snared four of seven targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's tough loss.

    The rookie led the team in targets even with Jameis Winston being ruled out on Sunday morning. It is the third consecutive game that Olave has averaged over 16 yards per catch. It is also the third straight contest in which he has managed double-digit points in PPR formats. Currently ranked as the WR25 at DLF, we should see him leapfrog fellow rookie Treylon Burks sooner rather than later in said rankings.

  • Chris Olave posts career high · Sep 25, 2022

    Saints rookie Chris Olave had nine catches for 147 yards in the Saints loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

    Olave has really turned it on the past couple of weeks and had a whopping 13 targets to lead New Orleans on the day. He now has 17 catches for 268 yards in just three games this season. While he's yet to find the end zone, the catches and targets are making him an easy play in PPR leagues even as a rookie. Olave comes in as our 4th ranked rookie overall and looks like a solid dynasty league asset already.
