Chris Olave, WR, New Orleans Saints
Chris Olave didn’t exactly have a fantastic situation surrounding him in 2022, but he was still able to put up impressive statistics in his rookie season.
Looking ahead to 2023, Olave now has a QB upgrade with Derek Carr, who has shown zero hesitancy to send the ball deep downfield whenever he can. This fits beautifully with Olave’s skill set and his deep-threat ability, which can lead to some massive performances in fantasy football this season.
While there are some unknowns with Michael Thomas returning to the lineup and who exactly Carr will lock onto, Olave showed enough in his rookie campaign to have faith in him returning value on his current ADP.
Diontae Johnson, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Diontae Johnson certainly had a disappointing 2022 season. Despite seeing an impressive 147 targets, Johnson ended the year with exactly zero touchdowns, which left a sour taste in the mouths of several fantasy managers.
That’s evident now in his current ADP as Johnson continues to go outside of the top 30 wide receivers off the board. But that creates an intriguing opportunity for smart fantasy managers to scoop him up at a discount.
Johnson should easily remain the No. 1 WR in Pittsburgh, and if Kenny Pickett can take a step forward in his NFL season, DJ should easily outperform his ADP. He’s in line for a bounce-back season — don’t miss out on it.
