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.

Fantasy Analysis | 1399608623
Brandin Cooks could be the No. 1 rookie Fantasy receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Saints needed help at receiver after getting rid of Lance Moore and Darren Sproles this offseason, and they were aggressive in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Saints gave up the No. 27 and No. 91 picks to move up to No. 20 for Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks.

He will now become the third receiver for the Saints behind Marques Colston and Kenny Stills, but he could end up as the No. 1 Fantasy receiver this season, even ahead of Sammy Watkins (Bills), Mike Evans (Buccaneers) and Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants), who were all drafted ahead of him. Cooks landed with the best offense and best quarterback of that group.

We'll find out how the Saints plan to use Cooks, who has elite speed but is on the smallish side at 5-foot-10, 189 pounds. Think Tavon Austin of the Rams, but hope for DeSean Jackson at his best with the Eagles. And Cooks should fly on the turf at the Superdome.

I would only draft Cooks with a late-round flier in seasonal Fantasy leagues, but he's a late first round or early second-round pick in rookie-only formats. If the Saints use him the right way -- unlike how the Rams used Austin last year -- then he could be a sleeper in 2014.

As for Stills, don't panic with this move. He still has the chance for a breakout season as the starter opposite Colston. And Drew Brees definitely benefits with the addition of Cooks.

Marques Colston's foot will have to be monitored
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints coach Sean Payton said receiver Marques Colston dealt with foot soreness throughout last season and his practice time will have to be monitored this season, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Colston failed to surpass 1,000 receiving yards in 2013 for the first time in five years.

Sean Payton clams up about Marques Colston goof
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Sean Payton apparently didn't want to talk after the Saturday loss in Seattle about the play that ended it. That was the illegal forward pass from otherwise productive Saints wideout Marques Colston.

"We'll look at the film. Next question," he told the assembled media per the New York Post.

Huge second half results in big numbers for Marques Colston
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints wideout Marques Colston rose to the occasion while his fellow receivers remained dormant Saturday in Seattle. Colston emerged from a first-half slumber to lead a strong comeback, but it was too late in the loss to the Seahawks.

Colston managed just one catch for 9 yards in the first half - a late second-quarter snag. But he exploded after intermission to finish with 11 catches for 144 yards and a 9-yard touchdown reception with 26 seconds remaining in the game.

With his team in catch-up mode, Colston came up with catch after catch. He caught seven passes for 88 yards and the score in the fourth quarter alone. He was certainly the go-to guy for quarterback Drew Brees, who targeted him 16 times. No teammate received more than six targets.

Colston, however, did destroy any hopes for a victory by throwing an illegal forward pass with seven seconds left instead of running out of bounds to set up a Hail Mary.
