New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson (concussion) has not officially been ruled out for Week 2 but the team is expected to be cautious. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints receiver Devery Henderson has not been officially ruled out for Week 2, but interim coach Aaron Kromer said Thursday that the team would be cautious because of his concussion. Henderson did not practice again on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should not expect Henderson to play in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers. Assuming he doesn't play, Joseph Morgan is one of the players who could expect to see more playing time at wide receiver. However, Drew Brees has plenty of targets in Jimmy Graham, Marques Colston, Lance Moore and Darren Sproles to keep Morgan from becoming relevant to fantasy owners. Look somewhere else if depth is needed at wide receiver.
