Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston combine for 106 yards Week 11
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston both cracked the 50-yard mark during Sunday's 27-10 defeat to the Bengals in Week 11.

Three of Cooks' five receptions came in the first half. He was targeted seven times and finished with five catches for 50 yards. He has 550 yards and three touchdowns on the year.

Colston came down with 16-yard and a 9-yard receptions in the second quarter. He caught a 17-yard pass from Drew Brees and a 7-yard reception in the fourth quarter. He was targeted eight times and finished with four catches for 56 yards in the loss.

New Orleans will play Baltimore in Week 12.

Marques Colston can't stop the slide
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Saints wide receiver Marques Colston's role has disappeared in recent weeks, and it might not be coming back. He had just two receptions for 36 yards in an overtime loss to the 49ers in Week 10.

Colston has just two 100-yard performances this season, and none since Week 7. In fact, he has just 121 yards combined over his last three games, and perhaps most worryingly, hasn't been targeted more than five times at any point during that stretch. He is on pace for just 853 receiving yards, which would be by far his worst total for a full season.

Colston's decline started last season, and has not slowed since. He is on pace for just 92 targets in 16 games, which would be the second-lowest total of his career; he had 89 targets in 11 games in 2008. We were hoping Colston could bounce back after last season's disappointment, but he has been surpassed in the team's pecking order by rookie Brandin Cooks and simply cannot be relied on in most Fantasy leagues.

Saints WRs Colston, Cooks each limited to three grabs Week 9
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints wide receivers Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks each had quiet performances in a Week 9 victory over the Panthers on Thursday.

Colston came down with a 22-yard pass from Drew Bress on the second offensive series of the night and only had two catches the rest of the way. He caught all three of his targets for 36 yards. Cooks had a similar night, as he came down with two receptions -- one for 18 and another for 5 yards -- on back-to-back plays on the opening drive, but was limited to only one grab the rest of the way. He caught all three targets for 38 yards in a 28-10 victory.

Who knows with the Saints wide receivers?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

On the road against the Panthers in Week 9, chances are one of the Saints top two wide receivers, be it Marques Colston or Brandin Cooks, will have a big game. The Panthers are tied for the fourth-most passing touchdowns allowed and have given up the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.

So which one? Particularly with Kenny Stills getting involved the last couple weeks, it's become a real crapshoot. Cooks tends to be more of a volume receiver in his good games, but Colston showed with six catches for 111 yards in Week 7 that he can still make an impact as well.

Of course, star tight end Jimmy Graham was basically just a decoy in that game. When his shoulder had recovered enough for him to catch a few passes himself in Week 8, Colston's numbers shrank again. Cooks, meanwhile, had six catches for 94 yards and a touchdown and has generally had an easier time coexisting with Graham.

I'd feel OK about starting Cooks in this one, particularly in points-per-reception leagues. Yeah, he's basically a 50-50 proposition, but that's more than I can say for Colston, particularly with Graham back in the mix. Colston still matters in Fantasy, but mostly in leagues with 14 teams or more.
