  • Saints' Chris Olave: Goes over 100 yards in loss

    Olave notched eight receptions (on 11 targets) for 104 yards during Sunday's 18-17 loss against the Packers.

    Olave was the most dynamic offensive player for either team during Sunday's loss. The second-year wideout hauled in four of his five targets in the first half, though he let a would-be seven-yard touchdown pass slide through his arms near the end of the first half. He also caught all but one of his six targets from quarterback Derek Carr, who was forced out with a right shoulder injury sustained on a sack during the third quarter. The veteran underwent X-rays on his right shoulder and was taken to a local area hospital for further evaluation. In his stead, backup quarterback Jameis Winston struggled to spur the Saints' offense during the second half, but he still completed two of three targets to Olave for 32 yards on the team's final offensive series. Olave finished with two more receptions than Michael Thomas, with the duo targeted on 20 of the 34 total passing attempts put up by Carr and Winston. Olave should remain the primary receiver for New Orleans moving forward, though his production could take a hit if Carr misses time.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Heats up in second half on MNF

    Olave caught six of 11 targets for 86 yards in Monday's 20-17 win over the Panthers.

    Olave couldn't get on the same page as Derek Carr in the first half, catching only two of seven targets for 11 yards while Michael Thomas hauled in seven of nine targets for 55 yards. The 2022 first-round pick came alive in the second half, sparking the game's first touchdown drive with a one-handed, 42-yard catch. Olave thought he had a touchdown of his own in the fourth quarter, but a replay review revealed that he stepped out of bounds on the seven-yard line before scampering into the end zone. Despite playing second fiddle to Thomas early, Olave ultimately led the team in both targets and receiving yards. Olave will try to score his first touchdown of the season Week 3 against the Packers.

  • Saints' Chris Olave: Eight catches to start new season

    Olave recorded eight receptions on 10 targets for 112 yards in Sunday's 16-15 win over the Titans.

    Even with both Rashid Shaheed and Michael Thomas playing a significant role in the offense, Olave turned in a strong start to his sophomore season. His performance was highlighted by a 45-yard catch and run early in the second half when he found a soft spot in the middle of the Titans' secondary on a crossing route. He supplemented that with additional receptions in intermediate areas of the field, helping him top 100 receiving yards -- a feat he accomplished three times as a rookie. Olave should remain a focus of the offense heading into a Week 2 matchup against the Panthers.
