New Orleans Saints Biggest Loser

Any receiver not named Deonte Harris or Marquez Callaway

Callaway played well. So did Harris. Every other wideout, not so much.

Behind Callaway and Harris, Alvin Kamara posted the third-most receiving yards with 51. Taysom Hill follows him, and Kenny Stills and Chris Hogan pop up at the very bottom. Stills recorded 17 yards; Hogan had zero.

Hogan only received one target this game while Stills had five, but the lack of production from either doesn’t bode well for the Saints’ continued WR issues.

We’ve been lamenting the losses of Michael Thomas and Tre’Qquan Smith from the beginning of the season. After this win against Washington, the Saints still lack wide receiver depth, and unfortunately, it seems to be a recurring pattern for the 2021 season.

The 3-2 New Orleans look ahead to their next matchup against a Russell Wilson-less Seattle Seahawks next week.
