3 New Orleans Saints who should see more snaps in Week 3
In the absence of Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders was supposed to be the receiver to step up and play the No. 1 spot. That has not been the case. In fact, Sanders has more than disappointed in the first two games of his Saints career.
The biggest surprise has been Deonte Harris. In Week 1 with Micahel Thomas playing, Harris only logged 10% of snaps. Without Thomas in Week 2, Harris playing in 56% of snaps.
He caught one pass for 17 yards in Week 1. In Week 2, he caught three passes for 23 yards. However, he caught three of five targets. I might go out on a limb here and say that Deonte Harris is a better receiver than Tre’Quan Smith if given the opportunity.
Hopefully in the coming weeks, Harris’ snap counts go up instead of going back down. He’s a speedster, and they may be able to use him as a lethal threat in the offense.
The New Orleans Saints need to make some adjustments after that Week 2 loss. Obviously, something wasn’t working. These three snap-count increases for these players might help in the long run for the team.
