New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson was diagnosed with a concussion on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson was diagnosed with a concussion on Wednesday (via Mike Triplett) and was held out practice. Henderson is one of the feature wide receivers in the Saints' high-octane offense, but may be unable to go in Week 2 given the nature of the head injuries.

Fantasy Analysis: With the departure of Robert Meachem to San Diego, it would have appeared to boost Henderson's fantasy value. Even when healthy, Henderson is no more than a flex option in most leagues, but he might not even be that in Week 2. Owners should monitor Henderson's status against Carolina, and be prepared to replace him if you have him starting. If Henderson is a scratch against the Panthers this weekend, look for Lance Moore to get more looks.
