3. Deonte Harris Receiving Yards

Harris had four catches for 96 yards, but most of his production came from a 70-yard touchdown run.

Barring that run, he had just three catches for 26 yards, which isn’t really impressive at all.

Still, Harris is one of the good ones, and look at Harris go!

Harris shimmies his way down the field, beating at least three defenders with his shiftiness, skill, and speed.

Harris finished the game as his team’s leading receiver, beating out Lil’Jordan Humphrey who also scored a touchdown.

To give you an idea of just how bad the rest of the Saints’ receiving corps is, the third and fourth-highest receivers that game were their tight ends: Nick Vannett and Juwan Johnson.

Tre’Quan Smith had just two catches for 15 yards, and Marquez Callaway had one catch for 13 yards.

Considering his teammate competition, Harris gets the shout-out this week for being the best of the worst.

Hopefully more Saints’ receivers come out to play next week.
