New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson is officially listed as out on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. We break down the fantasy implications.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson is officially listed as out on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Henderson suffered a concussion in the Saints' season-opening loss to the Washington Redskins. He did not practice at all this week and it appears the Saints are playing it safe with Henderson's head injury.
Fantasy Impact: The New Orleans Saints wide receivers are a bit banged up right now, so Henderson had a chance to emerge early in the season. He'll likely be buried on the depth chart even when he does return, so he doesn't have much fantasy value moving forward. The Saints' passing game will be just fine without him, though, so don't worry about Drew Brees.
