DeAndre Hopkins Returns
Hopkins Activated – After serving his 6-game suspension for PEDs, Hopkins’ return should provide a much needed boost to the (2-4) Cardinals who sit in the cellar of the NFC West.
With Marquise Brown exiting Sunday with a multi-week foot injury, Hopkins will immediately slot back in to a high-target role.
Fire him up with confidence against the Saints in his 2022 debut on TNF, especially with top CB Marshon Lattimore expected to be inactive.
Big TNF Expectations for Chris Olave
Saints’ Depleted WR Room – Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry remain out for New Orleans, which calls for a heavy target share in the direction of rookie Chris Olave.
All 3 WRs were missing in the Week 6 loss to the Bengals, along with Jameis Winston. Coach Dennis Allen has yet to name a starter between Winston and Andy Dalton, but a change to Winston under center would be an upgrade for the entire offense.
Despite missing last game, Olave leads all rookies with 389 receiving yards, and his 25 catches, has him in a tie with Drake London for 2nd-most behind Romeo Doubs (26).
