New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston could be released in the offseason, as the team is facing salary cap issues and Colston is owed $7 million for 2015. DT Brodrick Bunkley and LB David Hawthorne, both of whom will make $4.5 million, are also possible release candidates.

Saints | Jimmy Graham likely to miss 2 games

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 07:07:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is expected to miss two to three weeks after the bye week in Week 6, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints offense relies on Graham most, but, honestly, the entire depth chart could benefit in his absence. Look for more reliance on Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Marques Colston in the red zone.

Saints | Marques Colston struggling

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 13:25:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston has struggled quite a bit during the first month of the season and seems to disappear at times. He had a late-game fumble against the Atlanta Falcons, was completely invisible against the Cleveland Browns and his play against the Dallas Cowboys was up and down.

Fantasy Tip: Colston is averaging just three receptions per game so far this year and was shut out in one game. He has 185 yards receiving and just one touchdown. With his erratic play and the struggles the New Orleans offense have currently, it might be a better option to look elsewhere in FantasyScore for the time being.

Saints | Browns shut down Saints' passing game

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:19:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston, who didn't catch a pass in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns for the first time in 87 games, wasn't even targeted a single time. The Browns made it their mission to shut the Saints' downfield passing game down, and Cleveland had seven defensive backs on the field at once at times. WR Brandin Cooks was held to just three catches for 17 yards, and the four receivers combined for nine catches for 79 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Colston's fat zero for fantasy owners in Week 2 hurt badly. The good news is he has a good chance of bouncing back in Week 3 at home against the Minnesota Vikings.

Saints | Marques Colston shut out

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 06:25:38 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston was held without a reception Sunday, Sept. 14. It was the first time he didn't record a catch in a game since 2008.

Fantasy Tip: Colston is becoming a victim of the numbers game with the amount of capable targets Drew Brees has at his disposal. Colston is more of a matchup play in PPR leagues right now.

Saints | Marques Colston injured

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 20:56:32 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) came off the field during team drills Tuesday, Aug. 26, and talked with a trainer before watching the rest of practice from the sidelines.

Fantasy Tip: Whatever caused Colston to leave the field seems minor at this point, but the situation is worth monitoring. Nagging injuries and New Orleans' spread-the-wealth offensive philosophy can cause Colston's production to fluctuate dramatically on a week-to-week basis, but he still makes a decent WR3 in PPR formats.

Saints | Marques Colston inactive

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 17:58:18 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) was inactive for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Colston's injury, if there even is one, is unknown. He simply might have been given the night off to rest and keep him preserved for the regular season. Fantasy owners would not mind that one bit.

Saints | Marques Colston says foot feeling better

Fri, 04 Jul 2014 09:17:57 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) said he is feeling healthy this season. "I feel really good," Colston said. "The foot I know was addressed earlier in the offseason. It's really not an issue. I've been able to get out here with really no restrictions and just run around and feel good."

Fantasy Tip: Colston was hampered by a sore foot last year, but when healthy, he has been a reliable fantasy option. That being said, he isn't getting any younger and with Drew Brees' tendency to spread the wealth, he is probably best suited to be a WR3.
