Why Does Devery Henderson Start?

Here's the breakdown of the reps at each skill position: WR - Colston 46; Henderson 42; Meachem 31; Moore 19.TE - Graham 44; Gilmore 27; McQuistan 9. RB - Ingram 25; Sproles 22; P.Thomas 14. FB - Collins 25.

Do you think that Henderson is the Saints #2 WR? Why does he play so many downs but get so few passes thrown his way. Personally I love the guy because his speed is so important in stretching the field and he's a big time threat everytime he touches the ball and his drops are less than both Colston or Meachem. He also is effective in the running game.

Some of you guys wanted to get rid of him in favor of Arrington.
Just goes to show.... He had no catches against Detroit. Great roll player.

I dont think the stats really mean that much. Devery's fine with me.

Its like a Melissa Etheridge concert.
Theres just not enough balls to go around.

Clears out the underneath routes for Graham, Colston, Moore and is an excellent blocker.

Devery = Meachem

Both would have impressive stats on just about any other team in the league.

I would start my most fastest WR.

You got to have a deep threat and why not start the threat on down 1.

Meachem got no passes thrown his way against the Giants, but had a huge game against the Lions. It seems that each player is sublimating his ego to get a ring, responding to the call, not complaining when shut out. Where do you see such little discontent outside of New Orleans?

You should rephrase your query as, why does any particular receiver get playing time or passes thrown his way?

The obvious answer is that every down is situational.
