Why Does Devery Henderson Start?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I dont think starting really matters in this offense anyway. Every ball handler, except Brees, rotates in and out. I dont remember seeing Devery in that many snaps Sunday night. We used a lot more tight and heavy formations. I ...

Cause he's from LSU and he puts people in the seats...and...what everybody else said fo sho. He spreads the field and SP likes to do that. He likes to open big holes in the defense so DB can throw poison darts into them.

He actually had the second most snaps among our receivers. Colston led with 46 and Devery was second with 42. He's an excellent blocker, makes safeties aware he's on the field, and produces when his number is called upon... it just so happens he's low in the pecking order.

Both Devery and Meachem play key roles in our offense... regardless of what their numbers suggest. And to top it off, you never hear a peep from either of them. Love them both.

You never know who the #1 will be with Drew, he spreads the ball too well. The #4 option could be the most productive reciever on any given day depending on coverage.
