Kenny Stills is the Saints WR3 until further notice. Right now, the rookie from Oklahoma would get the first call in nickel packages. Veteran Steve Breaston likely will press him for the spot once he's acclimated to the offense, but Stills has a significant lead at this point.
Stills has sub-4.4 speed, so it makes sense that he would fill the Devery Henderson/Joe Morgan deep threat role with Morgan sidelined.

Drew Brees revealed how well fifth-rounder Kenny Stills has filled in for the injured Joe Morgan since Morgan got hurt during Saturday's scrimmage. Stills has been running with the first team and practice and the Saints feel like he has progressed.
Stills is not a tall, speedy receiver like the 6-foot-1 Morgan, but Brees said the rookie is starting to catch on -- pardon the pun.

Saints WR Joe Morgan clearly had the inside track on the New Orleans Saints' No. 3 receiver job this summer. But his knee injury in Saturday's scrimmage came at an awfully tough time. And suddenly his role could be threatened by a veteran contender in newly-signed veteran Steve Breaston.
Morgan earned his way into a more prominent role last year, through both his big-play ability and his improved blocking skills. The Saints liked him enough that they let Devery Henderson go this summer, and they didn't sign any other veterans in free agency.
The team is still quiet about the injury so it's possible he could be back and Breaston is just insurance. The story says the Saints are still high enough on Morgan to save a spot for him on the 53-man roster - or even stash him on injured reserve, if needed. With not enough balls to go around for the various weapons, whomever gets the WR3 job likely isn't a trustworthy fantasy starter in most standard leagues anyway.

Saints WR Joseph Morgan (chest, out) took limited practice reps all week and is out for Week 8. This leaves Devery Henderson as the team's primary deep threat. Don't be surprised if he gets behind the defense once or twice on Sunday.

Saints WR Lance Moore (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday. Moore has resumed practicing fully, so he's on track to make his return in Week 7. Devery Henderson returns to his normal "lottery ticket" status as a fantasy WR4/WR5.

Saints WR Lance Moore (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. We are now officially concerned about Moore's availability for Week 5. Devery Henderson and Joe Morgan figure to pick up extra snaps if Moore can't play.

Saints WR Marques Colston (foot, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 3. Colston looks iffy. Look for Lance Moore, Darren Sproles and Devery Henderson (concussion, probable) to pick up the slack if Colston can't play.

Saints WR Devery Henderson (concussion) took full practice reps again Thursday. The Saints have sorely missed the deep threat that he brings. Look for Drew Brees to take a shot or two deep to Henderson.

Saints WR Devery Henderson (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 2. Look for Joseph Morgan to step in as the Saints' WR3, which means he will be the 5th option in the passing game (including Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles).
