Wide Receivers

The Saints' wide receivers put on a show last week, and even more remarkably they all left week one's win healthy. Carolina's wide receivers seem to be healthy as well, but they didn't flash nearly as much as the boys in the Big Easy did.

The Saints' receivers are headlined by Michael Thomas, Chris Olave, and Rashid Shaheed. We saw Thomas haul in five receptions for 61 yards, Olave haul in eight receptions for 112 yards, and Shaheed haul in five receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown. Carr proved that he can sustain three really good receivers in Week One and I wouldn't be shocked if he showed that again in week two.

The Panthers are headlined by DJ Chark, Laviska Shenault, Adam Thielen, and Jonathan Mingo. Chark didn't play in week one with a hamstring injury so the receiving room was headlined by Thielen and Terrace Marshall primarily. The Panthers' wide receivers in Week One combined for eight receptions and 68 yards with their big free agent addition Thielen only hauling in two catches for 12 yards.

It's safe to say that New Orleans has the upper hand in this position matchup.
