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.

Saints | Expect Marques Colston's foot issues to linger

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 05:36:16 -0700

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said the team will monitor WR Marques Colston's (foot) practice time this season.

Fantasy Tip: He dealt with foot soreness for most of the 2013 season, and it appears the 31-year-old may continue to deal with it. He's still a solid WR3, but he appears to be on the downswing.

Saints | Lateral play was planned

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 15:09:09 -0800

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said the lateral play at the end of regulation against the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round was planned, but it involved poor execution by WR Marques Colston. The play was supposed to be a lateral across the field to RB Travaris Cadet, but Colston struggled with the execution. Payton admitted that the play was probably called too early, as well. "It's a play that we worked on," Colston said. "Obviously, it's not an ideal situation (being behind with time expiring and no timeouts), but the ball came out. And obviously the throw didn't go the way I would have planned. But, it happens."

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston had five receptions for 80 yards in the Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers, helping him move to the top of the franchise's all-time leader in receiving yardage. He is also the franchise's all-time leader in yards from scrimmage.

Saints | Marques Colston expected to play

Sun, 10 Nov 2013 09:36:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) is expected to play in the team's Week 10 game even though he is listed as questionable.

Fantasy Tip: Colston is a risky play this week since the team plays Sunday night. If he does not play, owners will need to have a backup plan to fill his spot. It probably would be safe for owners to bench Colston this week unless they do not have a better option at the position.

Saints | Marques Colston questionable

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 13:19:18 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait for the inactive list to come out to see if Colston will play. If he is able to play, he should be considered a low-end starting wide receiver or flex option. Robert Meachem and Kenny Stills could get increase in value if Colston misses the game and could be flex options. Meachem likely would be a safer option than Stills for owners.

Saints | Marques Colston limited in practice

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 13:24:36 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Colston has been a huge disappointment this year, and his production has especially tailed off in the last three games. Injuries early in the season were likely more serious than the team let on. He may not play this weekend, so be ready to replace him. You may want to do so anyway, at least until he proves that he's fully healthy.

Saints | Marques Colston to miss Week 9

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 08:29:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) has been declared inactive for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: With Colston out, Kenny Stills likely will receive an increase in his fantasy value since he will get more playing time. Lance Moore likely will also see more targets during the game. Both should be starting options for owners this week.

Saints | Plenty of depth if Marques Colston can't go

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 21:02:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) is uncertain to play in the Week 9 game against the New York Jets. If he cannot go, the team still has good depth at the receiver position with WR Lance Moore healthy, and WR Kenny Stills emerging as a solid threat. WRs Robert Meachem and Nick Toon also provide good depth.

Fantasy Tip: If Colston is inactive, and TE Jimmy Graham (foot) is again limited, bump Moore up to a WR3 or flex play in standard leagues, and a low-end WR2 in points-per-receptions (PPR) fantasy formats. Stills would also be worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex play if Colston is sidelined.

Saints | Marques Colston does not practice

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 13:24:50 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Not good news for Colston owners. This may go right down to the wire on game day. Check back to see if he is active, but be prepared to have another option ready to go.

Saints | Marques Colston limited

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 14:33:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign that he practiced at all Thursday, but we get the sense that Colston's injuries this year have been more serious than the team has let on. He's been a massive disappointment. At this point, don't expect more than WR3 or flex production.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Saints | Jimmy Graham misses practice

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:21:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (foot) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 24, and the likelihood of him playing in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills decreased. TE Benjamin Watson may start in Graham's place if he cannot play. Watson had three catches for 61 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 6 when Graham was blanketed in coverage.

Fantasy Tip: Watson could pick up some of the slack, but as Larry Holder notes, he'll likely be used to block frequently, too. Marques Colston should be primed for a big game, and Kenny Stills and Nick Toon are sleeper options that could make some big plays if Graham doesn't play.

Saints | Marques Colston disappoints

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 15:11:20 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston was held to just two receptions for 15 yards in the Week 5 game against the Chicago Bears, and he was targeted just twice.

Fantasy Tip: There is no word of any injury for Colston, it just appears that he had an off game and wasn't involved in the offense. He'll look to bounce back in Week 6 against the New England Patriots, and remains a solid WR2/3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston probable

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 16:03:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 20, and is probable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Coltson will play. However, the matchup against Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is a very tough one. That should make you at least consider benching Colston this week, depending on what your other options are at wideout.

Fantasy Tip: You should fully expect Colston to play in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals. However, the matchup against Patrick Peterson is enough to consider going with other options at wide receiver this week. Drew Brees can spread it around to others if need be.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is listed as probable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Colston will be able to play even though he continues to deal with his foot injury. He should be considered as a No. 2 wide receiver in fantasy leagues this week.

Saints | Marques Colston not 100 percent

Tue, 20 Aug 2013 15:43:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) said he's not 100 percent healthy despite practicing for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 20. "That's OK," Colston said. "I'm working towards it. I still have couple of weeks yet (until the regular-season opener vs. Atlanta). I'm still taking my time with it." Colston doesn't know if he'll play this weekend in the third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: As Drew Brees notes in the article, Colston has battled through nagging injuries like this his entire career, so he should be fine, and he'd probably be playing were it the regular season. However, the foot injury has lingered since last season. Expect him to be ready for Week 1. Colston is a solid No. 2 wideout in the Saints' high-flying aerial attack.

Saints | Marques Colston back at practice

Tue, 20 Aug 2013 09:53:34 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 19, his first time going through drills since Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Colston is a bit of a risk due to his propensity for injury, but he remains a Top 20 fantasy talent at his position. If you plan to draft Colston, starting in the middle of Round 4 in most formats, make sure to have plenty of depth on hand.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) remains on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, but head coach Sean Payton said Tuesday, July 30, that Colston is making progress. Colston might be able to start practicing soon.

Fantasy Tip: Colston remains a Top 15 fantasy option at his position, and this injury will not cause him to miss any time into the regular season.

Saints | Joe Morgan battling for No. 3 job

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 10:34:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan is battling WRs Nick Toon, Kenny Stills and Courtney Roby for the No. 3 wide receiver spot in training camp behind WRs Marques Colston and Lance Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that New Orleans should continue to have an explosive aerial attack led by Drew Brees, until we know who actually has the No. 3 job, none of those options are worth drafting. They could make for waiver-wire fodder later in the season if injuries open up a spot in front of them.
