Devery Henderson | New Orleans Saints | WR
Height: 5-11 Weight: 200 | Born: 3/26/1982
2012 Experience: 9th Year We know what Devery Henderson is; a deep threat that doesn’t do much else. Henderson will continue to contribute and like we saw at the start of last season, he did flash WR3 fantasy value when Lance Moore and Marques Colston were down.
That’s basically it for Henderson as he will need injuries in the receiving core before he’s a reliable hold in anything but deep leagues.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Back when the Saints busted out in 2006 with Drew Brees throwing the football all over the place, many in fantasy football held out hope for Devery Henderson to be a relevant big play-maker in their offense. While Henderson has had his moments with the Saints, he’s never been a receiver worth holding onto for a long stretch in fantasy football leagues.
In his seven years played in the NFL, Henderson is averaging just over two touchdowns as season and that probably won’t change going forward. While Henderson is likely to stay with the Saints this season, he’s just another weapon to build Brees’s stats on the year.

Devery Henderson is a solid third receiver for the Saints going forward, with Meachem soon to take over. No doubt he helps his team and makes Drew Brees a more valuable fantasy quarterback but that is about where it stops. Henderson isn’t a great fantasy option, and now coming into his seventh year in the league I can’t say he ever will be.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Amazingly Devery Henderson spent another year as the Saints No.2 starter as he started eleven of the teams sixteen regular season games. For the first time in Henderson’s career, he posted over 32 receptions in a season as he finished with 51.
Henderson has always been one of Drew Brees’s explosive weapons down the field, and he did post over 800 yards but he only had two touchdowns. This is probably, what has plagued Henderson from being a fantasy relevant option as he just can’t produce a decent touchdown total throughout his career.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Henderson isn’t worth a draft day selection at this time but if Robert Meachem should have continued problems in his recovery from toe surgery it would help his value. Meachem was expected to unseat Henderson from the starting job this year after he made strides last season.
It will be an interesting challenge to see if Meachem can play with his explosive speed on a toe problem. For Henderson, it is encouraging that he had a strong catch total last year. This shows he could stay involved in the offense for more than just his deep ball abilities.
Still even if Meachem is out with a toe problem this year he will have to show is touchdown totals are more consistent before he’s an option to use in your fantasy league.
