"Marques came up with some huge plays, some huge catches," Brees said after Colston caught nine balls for 125 yards. "He was able to find those creases in the zones and get open in man [coverage] and just do different things to get the ball thrown his way."
In response to a question, Brees called Colston one of the NFL's most underrated receivers. "He has been his entire career here... So durable, so reliable, such a big-time playmaker," Brees said. "If you match his numbers up against anybody, I think his consistency ranks up there with just about anybody."
Colston became the first Saint to surpass 8,000 receiving yards. He has 8,115 in eight seasons.
Colston caught 6- and 15-yard scores in the second quarter and had a third-quarter touchdown grab overturned on review. Officials ruled Colston's knee was down before he stretched the ball over the goal line.
Targeted a team-high 13 times, Colston registered his second 100-yard game this season. He became the first Saints receiver to surpass 8,000 receiving yards, 87th in NFL history.
Colston visits the Rams in Week 15.
Colston has been better at home than on the road this year with at least seven Fantasy points in a standard league in five of six games. But he only has two touchdowns on the season and two games with double digits in Fantasy points.
The Panthers have only allowed three receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points and score touchdowns this year, and they have limited guys like Victor Cruz, Larry Fitzgerald and Vincent Jackson twice to seven Fantasy points or less.
Don't be surprised if Colston gets to seven points this week, but that would make him a No. 3 Fantasy receiver at best. He's a risky starting option heading into the Fantasy playoffs even though the Saints are playing at home.
Colston, who was targeted seven times, has eight catches for 67 yards over the past two games. In Weeks 10-11, Colston broke out for 12 catches, 187 yards and a touchdown.
Colston plays the Panthers in Week 14.
