Starting Wide Receivers: Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry, Chris Olave

New Orleans went from having one of the worst receiving units in the NFL to having one of the deepest units in the league in a matter of months. The Saints will be getting back a healthy Michael Thomas in 2022, a young playmaker in Chris Olave, and an experienced Pro Bowler in Jarvis Landry.

Right now, it is hard to tell what the wide receiver depth chart will look like, but more than likely we’ll see Landry take over the number two wide receiver work while Olave transitions into the league.

Nonetheless, we will see plenty of three-receiver sets for the Saints in 2022, and maybe even more due to the deep talent that is available at the position.

There’s still uncertainty as to when Thomas will be able to play again, so Landry and Olave could be the early tandem in the boot to kick off the campaign. Once the dust settles, however, the trio of Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry, and Chris Olave will terrify opponents.
