We'll continue our team-by-team look at how wide receivers performed (in terms of drops and how frequently they were targeted) with the New Orleans Saints.

Player Targets Catches Drops % Caught % First Down
Marques Colston 88 47 8 53.4 39.8
Devery Henderson 57 32 2 56.1 47.4
Robert Meachem 20 12 2 60.0 40.0
Lance Moore 120 79 2 65.8 33.3
David Patten 20 11 1 55.0 35.0

 Notes: Henderson showed dramatic improvement, dropping only two passes after consistently being among the league leaders in recent years. ... Colston tied for seventh in the league with eight drops, despite missing five games due to injury. Colston had been sure-handed in his first two seasons, but this year's numbers might reflect that he injured his thumb early in the season and may not have been fully healthy all year.
