Saints | Marques Colston could be used in red zone

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 05:48:33 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston could be used as a red zone target more than in recent years, and he should remain heavily involved in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Colston might slip through the cracks in drafts because of his age, but he's worth the WR5 flyer.

Saints | Marques Colston limiting his mileage

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 19:50:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston did not participate in minicamp practice Tuesday, June 16, and it was at least the third session he has missed over the past two weeks. "When you play nine, 10 years in this league at a skill position, mileage is mileage," Colston said. "I'm just kind of in a mode where they want to manage that process throughout the year."

Fantasy Tip: Colston is now two years removed from the 80-catch, 1000-yard plateau, and his receptions and yards have decreased in consecutive seasons. He best years are behind him, and as indicated by his limited participation recently, nagging injuries have taken their toll. At best, Colston could be drafted as a low-end No. 4 wide receiver, but he looks a lot better as your No. 5 or No. 6.

Saints | Brandin Cooks set for big role

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 16:24:14 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks will be atop the depth chart with WR Marques Colston to enter the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks could be a big-time breakout candidate after playing in the slot most of his solid rookie season. Look at Cooks as a premium WR3 with WR2 potential.

Saints | Marques Colston restructures

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 07:41:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston restructured his contract Friday, March 6, and will return in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Colston still has some marginal PPR value in the Saints offense. However, he's a WR5 at the tail end of drafts.

Saints | Marques Colston may need to restructure

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 06:48:49 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston will probably return at a reduced rate from his $7 million salary in 2015, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: Colston had a steep dropoff with his 59-902-5 season last year. He could come at a value as a WR5 in PPR formats in drafts as aging veterans often get overlooked.

Saints | Marques Colston may be asked for pay cut

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 11:22:07 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston may be asked to take a pay cut this offseason, because he is scheduled to make $7 million in 2015 and count $9.7 million against the salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Colston will be back with the Saints next season, but probably be a starting option for most teams in the league if he is released. Colston saw his receptions and receiving drop for the second straight year, but could still help fantasy teams as a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 receiver next season.

Saints | Marques Colston could be cut following season

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 03:38:18 -0800

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.
