With his impressive touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 18, Chris Olave has become just the third rookie in New Orleans Saints history to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards (he’s up to 1,029 yards going into halftime). Marques Colston and Michael Thomas were the other two to do it in their first year, very impressive names in Saints history for Olave to join.
He is just the 13th player in franchise history to reach the number. Colston is the record holder with six 1,000-yard seasons in his career. Getting one in his first season, Olave now has eyes on him to move up the ranks in franchise record books in the coming years. He has been one of the best rookies in the league, and one of the few bright spots on the Saints offense this season.
