Monday update: Olave did not practice on Monday and was limited in Tuesday’s practice in Week 16.
Fantasy football analysis
Olave is the Saints’ top receiver this season. If he is out or limited in Week 16, we can expect to see wide receiver Rasheed Shahid put together a big fantasy week. The Rams' defense is fairly middle-of-the-road when it comes to fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers.
Olave’s absence will be a hit on the Saints offense. The Rams are already four-point favorites heading into this game, and the top Saints receiver’s injury may move that line. Check out Rasheed Shahid’s receiving yard totals at DraftKings Sportsbook if Olave is out for a prop bet option.
