Colston caught three passes on four targets for 38 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans. With the Saints falling behind early, Colston saw an uptick in playing time - 74 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune - as the Saints took to the air in three-wide receiver sets for most of the afternoon. Still, Colston could only manage modest production, and outside of a big performance in Week 8, he's failed to top four catches or crack 70 yards receiving this season. Colston can still offer some low-end production for fantasy owners desperate for options, particularly those in PPR leagues, but his upside is limited. Unfortunately, things will not get easier for Colston and the Saints in a Week 13 tilt against a stingy Panthers' defense.
Colston (not injury related) is active for Sunday's game at Washington. Colston is available, but outside of a nice game in Week 8, he is having a pretty quiet season.
Colston caught three passes on three targets for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans. Colston has clearly fallen to No. 3 on the Saints' wide receiver depth chart, as both Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead continue to play significantly more snaps than him. Still, quarterback Drew Brees has been rolling of late and continues to look Colston's way in critical situations, so Colston can still probably be relied on for low-end weekly production for fantasy teams in a pinch. Up next is a favorable Week 10 tilt in Washington.
Colston caught 8-of-9 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants. A vintage performance from the veteran, who found the end zone for the first time this season and broke the 100-yard barrier for the first time since Week 6 of last year. Colston should not be counted on for these types of performance on a weekly basis, but he appears to be over the recent shoulder injury he suffered, and could experience an uptick in fantasy value if he can remain in the sights of red-hot quarterback Drew Brees. Colston and the Saints will play host to the Texans in Week 9.
Saints veteran wideout Marques Colston (shoulder) caught one pass on three targets for 20 yards in the Sunday defeat of Indianapolis. Though he only had one catch, it was a big one as it essentially sealed the win with time winding down in the fourth quarter. Still, it's clear that Colston is not the same player he was in his younger years and his playing time continues to dwindle, as he was on the field for only 27 of 88 offensive snaps, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
