With Michael Thomas on the shelf, it's probably an understatement to say the New Orleans Saints are thin at the wide receiver position.

Things are suddenly much worse now, however, with Tre'Quan Smith joining him on the bench.

The Saints have gone from thin to Christian Bale in The Machinist.

With Thomas and Smith on the shelf and Deonte Harris facing potential punishment for a DUI arrest, the Saints are left with Marquez Callaway and Chris Hogan leading the way at wide receiver.

Unless you want to count Taysom Hill as a wide receiver, Callaway is the only active wideout on the Saints right now who tallied even 5 receptions in 2020.

Hill and Jameis Winston are fighting hard to win the starting QB job, but unless Smith can get healthy in a hurry that's not going to be a very fun job to have early in the season.
