    Saints' Marques Colston: Sets career lows in 2015

    Colston caught 45 passes on 67 targets for 520 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games this season. Colston's tenth season in a Saints' uniform was by far his worst, as he set career lows in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns. Colston missed the Saints' final two games, and as the season progressed, he lost significant playing time to second-year pro Willie Snead. Although he's signed through 2016, the long-tenured Saint could be a cap casualty this offseason.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Ruled out for Sunday

    Colston (chest) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. With Colston out for a second straight week, Brandon Coleman will join Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead in three-wide formations. Colston should be healthy long before training camp, but he'll probably have to accept a pay cut if he wants to stay with the only team he's ever played for. Even then, the Saints may just prefer to move on.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Colston (chest) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, the Saints' official site reports. Colston hasn't practiced since taking the field in Week 15, as a chest injury is currently plaguing him and forced his second absence of the season this past Sunday versus the Jaguars. As a result, his practice participation will be of interest in advance of Sunday's season finale in Atlanta.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Inactive Sunday

    Colston (chest) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Unable to practice this week due to a chest injury, Colston will rest up with one game remaining on the 2015 slate. Because Drew Brees will attempt to play through a torn plantar fascia, the remaining receiving options, namely Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead, Brandon Coleman, and Ben Watson (knee), may have their work cut out for them.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Not expected to play Sunday

    Colston (chest) is not expected to play Sunday against Jacksonville, NFL.com's Rand Getlin reports. Though Colston was listed as questionable on the Saints' Friday injury report, Getlin is reporting that the veteran wideout will not be able to play Sunday against the Jaguars. Owners should wait for further confirmation from the team before removing him from their lineups, but if Colston is ultimately unable to play Sunday, look for Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead to see the bulk of the targets while Brandon Coleman or tight end Ben Watson could see a slight bump in targets.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Questionable for Week 16

    Colston (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Colston has been slowed by a chest injury this week, and the Saints will not make a final call on his Week 16 status until sometime Sunday. Starting quarterback Drew Brees (foot) is also listed as questionable for Week 16, so it remains to be seen both if Colston will play, and who will be throwing him the ball if he does.

    Saints' Marques Colston: No practice Wednesday

    Colston (chest) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Evan Woodbery of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Colston hasn't experienced a marked increase in targets of late, but visits to the end zone have become more frequent over the last two games, as he's hauled in eight of 12 passes for 75 yards and three touchdowns. Facing a chest injury, his activity level at practice will be of interest this week, though the health of his long-time partner in crime, Drew Brees (foot), will likely have more of an impact on Colston's potential to produce.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Third touchdown in two weeks

    Colston caught two passes on four targets for 39 yards, including a 11-yard touchdown, in Monday night's loss to the Lions. Colston played 71 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, but it was Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks who did most of the receiving damage for the Saints. While Colston's role in the red zone has seemingly grown in Mark Ingram's absence - he has three touchdowns in the last two weeks - Colston is still not a high-volume player at this point in his career. The Week 16 matchup against the Jaguars seems favorable, but Colston makes for a risky play in many fantasy leagues, particularly if Drew Brees can't go.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Catches two touchdowns

    Colston caught six passes on eight targets for 36 yards, including two touchdowns, in Sunday's win against the Buccaneers. Colston turned back the clock in Tampa Bay. The six catches were his second-most this season and his two touchdowns were of the red zone variety- one from 3-yards away and another from 1-yard out. Still, brought his season total to three scores. It's readily apparent that Colston only has 43 receptions this season and he has scored a grand total of three touchdowns this season. While the Saints still have some favorable matchups remaining on schedule, including a Week 15 tilt against the Lions, fantasy owners will have a hard time trusting that Colston can duplicate his success from Sunday.

    Saints' Marques Colston: Active Sunday

    Colston (non-injury) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Panthers, the Saints' official site reports. With Willie Snead (calf) missing his first game of the season, Colston could be featured a bit more than his typical 5.2 targets per contest, which could yield fruit against a Carolina defense that will be without Charles Tillman (knee) yet again.
