Saints not concerned about Marques Colston's zero catches
by Michael Hurcomb |

Saints coach Sean Payton doesn't seem overly concerned wide receiver Marques Colston had zero catches during a Week 2 loss at Cleveland, according to ESPN. Payton acknowledged that a receiver having a quiet day in the Saints' offense is normal since the team has plenty of options on offense.

"We got a lot of sub-packages, but I thought by and large we threw it pretty well. The targets sometimes are going to be different," Payton said. "Jimmy (Graham) ended up having one of his better games. That happens with our offense. I thought Kenny Stills was able to have an impact coming back. [Robert] Meachem had some big plays for us. I thought as that game went on Drew [Brees] did a good job of finding the matchups that were advantageous to us."

It didn't help Colston that his playing time was cut from 64 snaps in Week 1 to 41 snaps Sunday.

"We felt he played too many the week prior," Payton explained. "Managing the amount of snaps these guys get and trying to keep them from getting north of 50, for instance. We have depth there. Obviously Brandin (Cooks) received more snaps yesterday. That’s something that we will pay attention to each week."

Marques Colston blanked in Cleveland
by Marty Gitlin |

The catches racked up by usually productive Saints wide receiver Marques Colston in Cleveland on Sunday can be found inside a donut.

Colston was held without a reception against the Browns. He was not targeted in the game, which is a surprise considering he caught five passes for 110 yards and a score in the season opener.

Late fumble mars great game for Marques Colston
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After saying all preseason that his foot will no longer hinder him like in years past, Saints wide receiver Marques Colston showed it with a couple big plays Week 1 at Atlanta. Unfortunately, both ended in disappointment.

The first wasn't his fault. He caught a deep pass over the middle late in the third quarter and weaved through defenders for another 35 yards or so, gaining 57 yards in all. But three plays later, quarterback Drew Brees threw an interception in the end zone, ending the Saints' chance at a touchdown.

The second proved to be devastating for the Saints. At the start of overtime, Colston caught a short pass over the middle with room to run for a potentially big gain, but Falcons defensive back William Moore caught him from behind and swatted the ball out of his arms, setting Atlanta up for a game-winning field goal.

Colston led the team with 110 yards on five catches. He tied for the second-most targets with eight. He'll look to make up for his fumble Week 2 at Cleveland.

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 Fantasy Football analyst Jamey Eisenberg ranks him 20th at wide receiver for the week.

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

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

"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.
