Fantasy Analysis | 1409698735
Healthier Marques Colston could start big
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints wide receiver Marques Colston, who has spoken repeatedly this preseason about how much better he feels after battling a foot injury the last couple years, has the perfect opportunity to show it Week 1 at Atlanta.

Not only did the Falcons rank 21st against the pass last year, allowing 243.6 yards per game, but they gave up the eighth-most Fantasy points to a wide receiver. Though they've made some changes to their defense since then, most notably switching from a 4-3 to a 3-4 scheme, their starting cornerback tandem of Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford remains unchanged.

Colston caught five passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in his first game against the Falcons last year. He wasn't as productive in the second, catching four passes for 40 yards, and that'll happen to him from time to time on an offense that likes to spread the ball around. But the matchup clearly works in his favor this week, which is why CBSSports.com Fantasy Football analyst Jamey Eisenberg ranks him 20th at wide receiver for the week.

Marques Colston on 2014: 'Totally different ballgame'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints receiver Marques Colston, 31, feels much better than he did last year when he was bothered by a nagging foot injury. "I'm feeling really good going into the season," he told ESPN.com.

"I have two more weeks to try and get better and continue to manage my body. But by all means, it's a totally different ballgame than last year."

Colston was heavily involved Saturday against the Colts, catching a 13-yard touchdown and converting 3rd-and-8 with a 12-yard grab. He drew six targets in the first quarter alone.

Marques Colston says foot won't limit him
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints receiver Marques Colston said his foot feels much better than last season, when he failed to record 1,000 yards for the first time in five years. "Feels completely different," he told The Advocate. "No restrictions."

Colston dealt with foot soreness throughout last season, and coach Sean Payton suggested in March he'd have to monitor Colston's practice time in 2014. Colston's comment Wednesday paints a more optimistic picture.
