New Orleans Saints wide receiver Chris Olave is active for their Week 13 matchup with the Detroit Lions. Olave suffered a concussion in last week’s game, but he went through the protocols and will be good to go.

Olave is having a solid season, as he's caught 63 passes for 771 yards and three touchdowns. He’s on pace to have his second 1,000-yard season. It was a bit of an up-and-down start for him this year, but he’s quickly turned things around. Olave has 90+ yards in back-to-back games and is due for a big matchup today.

Regardless of league size, Olave should start this week. The Lions have been bad against the pass in recent weeks, and I would expect that to continue. Olave is just starting to hit his stride this season and looks as good as he’s been since being drafted. Michael Thomas being out also helps his numbers.
