Devery Henderson's days in the Big Easy could be numbered if he doesn't get more consistant.

The New Orleans Saints open their season Sunday against highly touted rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.

New Orleans, of course, has one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Drew Brees, but the receiving group is a bit different this season.

Robert Meachem went to San Diego this offseason, allowing Devery Henderson to take the starting spot opposite Marques Colston.

Henderson has been a fantasy owners' headache since coming into the league in 2005, but he could see an expanded role this season.

Entering his ninth NFL season, the LSU product has just 223 catches and 19 touchdowns. He has been a perennial underachiever in the always-talented Saints wideout group.

Could this be his breakout season? Probably not, but he should see an increased number of targets. If he decides to be more physical, Henderson may even get some looks in the red zone.

The season opener should indicate just how big of a role the Saints want Henderson to play this season.

Here are my predictions for the 30-year-old receiver in Week 1 against the ‘Skins.
