Chris Olave Opens Week as DNP with New Orleans Slated to Play on TNF

After missing this past weekend’s game against the Giants in Week 15, Olave faces a quick turnaround in Week 16 with the Saints slated to take on the Rams on Thursday night football. Starting out the week as a DNP isn’t the biggest deal in the world, especially considering it was only a walkthrough - but at the same time, having him be listed even just as a limited participant would have been much more reassuring. He’ll almost certainly have to take the practice field at some point this week for him to have a chance to go against the Rams, so fantasy managers should monitor this situation closely as gameday approaches. Olave is officially in danger of missing the first two weeks of the fantasy playoffs, a hefty blow to the teams that were able to rely on him throughout the season. If Olave would miss, look for the Saints to deploy a similar offense to the one they fielded against the G-men with plenty of involvement in the receiving game from tight end Juwan Johnson and company.
