Saints RB Alvin Kamara left Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers with an ankle injury.
Kamara was taken down with the controversial hip drop tackle. Kamara finished with 45 yards on ten carries and caught two for four yards as the Saints have been in control all day in Tampa. Jamaal Williams will shoulder the load with Kendre Miller inactive today.
Miller has been out since Week 9, and hadn't seen continuous usage since Week 5 (12-37-0), when Kamara was still serving his suspension. The rookie is a fairly decent stash in very deep leagues, should anything happen to Kamara.
Olave hasn't had the best connection with QB Derek Carr this season, but he still represents his best option when on the field, and should be considered a WR2 in Week 16. Even with their struggles, the sophomore wide receiver has averaged 14.4 half-PPR points per game over his last five.
This is great news for the Saints offense as a whole, as they are already missing Michael Thomas and Rashid Shaheed for Week 13. Olave would be a must-start if he's fully cleared by Sunday, in a great matchup against the Lions.
