Saints Rookie Has Been The Best Part Of A Slow Offense

In Week Four the former Ohio State standout led the Saints in receiving for the third week in a row and hauled in his first career touchdown. He has been a bright spot in an otherwise slow offense.

On Sunday, Olave tallied up 67 yards on only four receptions from seven targets to go along with one touchdown, all of which led the team. He was the most productive receiver for the team as he has been for the past few weeks. Given the plethora of injuries coming the Saints way, he has been the only form of consistency on the offense.

Quarterback Changes For The Saints Posed No Problems

Speaking of Andy Dalton, Jameis Winston was out with injury in the game vs. Minnesota, giving the Red Rifle his first start for New Orleans. While Olave didn’t see as many targets (seven) as he would have had Winston been at quarterback, but he still managed to get his highest average yards per receptions on the season (16.8).

Dalton connected with him on a 32-yard reception over the middle of the field where he was able to come down with it and help move the ball in a crucial Saints drive.

The reigning NFC Offense Rookie of the Month scored his first touchdown of the season on Sunday. On a designed play for Olave, Jarvis Landry and Adam Trautman ran clear-out routes opening up a gap for Dalton to find him for the score.

Watch as Chris Olave (12) cuts underneath Adam Trautman (82) to find an open spot in the endzone for the touchdown.

Things Look Bright For The Saints’ First Rounder

The 11th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft has made an immediate impact for the Saints, currently leading the team in receptions (21) and receiving yards (335) and is making a strong case for Offensive Rookie Of the Year.

New Orleans should not feel any regret after trading up to get Olave as he is the best part of their underwhelming offense so far.

After this loss in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Saints fall to just 1-3 on the season, good enough for last place in the NFC South. The team needs to get something going or else they will be seeing and early season’s end.

The Seahawks will head to New Orleans for a Week five matchup on Sunday, October 9, 2022.
