Devery and the Hendersons

Initially shunned by Lithgowian-like managers, this strange, unknown receiver should be strapped onto the roofs of all fantasy football teams and taken home immediately. Overlooked for the experienced Lance Moore and/or the sleeper who keeps sleeping, Robert Meachem, Devery Henderson is ready to make believers out of skeptics and cynics alike. He’s already displayed his potential in the Saints offense, he posted a 100 yd game with a TD vs the abominable Lions. This is what gets me so giddy about Devery: he is listed ahead of Lance Moore on the Saints depth chart, he had the most targets (8) of all Saints receivers in week 1 and John Hansen has this to say about him…

“Saints WR Devery Henderson has some major juice. If only he could runs routes better and catch the ball consistently well, he could be special.”

Obviously the coaches have seen some improvements if he’s listed ahead of Lance Moore, who caught 10 TDs and 928 yds last season. When Colston missed games (6) and Devery received more playing time, he was a decent start; posting 381 yds and a TD. His big play ability (24.8 ypc) and an increase in targets should make Henderson a very profitable player. I put in a 9th waiver priority nabbing him and I’m currently testing the trade market for his services in other leagues.
