    Saints wide receiver Marques Colston totals only 19 yards Sunday

    Saints wide receiver Marques Colston caught four passes on five targets for 19 yards in Sunday night's win against the Cowboys. Colston was not much of a factor in Week 4, with Drew Brees seemingly limited to short throws due to his injured shoulder.Further, he once again lost playing time to second-year pro Willie Snead, who led the Saints with six catches for 89 yards, as Colston was on the field for only 41 of the Saints' 73 offensive plays (56 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.Brees still looks to Colston when he wants to move the sticks on third down, but with Colston essentially becoming a part-time player in New Orleans, his upside is limited. The Saints will face the Eagles in Week 5.

    Saints WR Marques Colston totals four catches Week 3

    Saints wide receiver Marques Colston had four catches on six targets for 47 yards Sunday against the Panthers. Despite a change in quarterback from Drew Brees (shoulder) to Josh McCown, Colston's production wasn't terribly different from the first two games of the season. Unfortunately, that wasn't good for Fantasy owners, as Colston has not reached even 70 yards in a game this season. He also has failed to score a touchdown. McCown looked comfortable in the pocket, but Colston's Fantasy upside is quite limited in a lot of formats right now with Brees injured.

    Marques Colston pins Saints struggles on loss of Darren Sproles

    The Saints fell from 11-5 in 2013 to 7-9 last year, and WR Marques Colston blames an offseason change for the dropoff. Appearing on a radio show with Ron Jaworski, Colston pinpointed the Saints' 2014 problems on the loss of RB Darren Sproles. "When you lose a guy that has produced at that high of a level and don't have an immediate replacement planned for him, you're going to struggle at times when those crucial situations," Colston said. "When you know exactly the matchup you're going to get, the look you're going to get and what you're going to get out of that player--when you don't have that, and it's kind of an unknown, it kind of makes game planning that more difficult."

    Marques Colston a candidate for a pay cut

    Saints wideout Marques Colston, who turns 32 in June, is scheduled to make $6.9 million in 2015 with a cap hit of $9.7 million. The New Orleans Times-Picayune says the team likely wants Colston back, but not at that price. He could be cut if he does not accept a lower salary.

He struggled to separate from man coverage, and his role diminished with the emergence of rookie Brandin Cooks and second-year pro Kenny Stills.
