Saints | Marques Colston released

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 13:55:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) was cut with a failed physical designation Monday, Feb. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Colston has been over the hill for a while now and was supplanted by Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead as the top wide receivers in New Orleans. He could very well sign with another team this offseason, but he should no longer be regarded as a reliable starting fantasy option.

Saints | Marques Colston release likely

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 12:00:57 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston is expected to be released in the coming days, according to a source. Colston is set to earn $3.2 million in salary and bonuses in 2016 and missed three games while playing as the No. 3 wide receiver on the Saints last season.

Fantasy Tip: Colston has really been a shell of his old self the past few seasons as he has been overtaken by injuries and better talent. Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead have already shown they are capable of leading the Saints' receiving corps without Colston. If Colston is released, Cooks should be viewed as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2, while Snead is in the WR4 conversation.

Saints | High hopes for Brandon Coleman

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 21:07:47 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman appears to be next in line if WR Marques Colston is not brought back or elects to retire. General manager Mickey Loomis believes the team has a replacement ready in Coleman. "Brandon Coleman is a big guy out of Rutgers that has done some good things and I think in many ways is the heir apparent to Marques," Loomis said Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman posted nine receptions for 126 yards over the final two games, giving the team hope he can live up to his immense preseason 2015 hype. If he gets a chance at a starting gig heading into 2016, he would potentially be worth a mid-round fantasy selection.

Saints | Marques Colston retiring?

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 18:39:29 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston declined to speak to the media on the last day of access, and beat writer Katherine Terrell believes he will retire rather than play for another team in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Colston's numbers have been trending in the wrong direction, and if he does decide to play another year, he can be left on the waiver wire.

Saints | Marques Colston may be too expensive

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 17:01:45 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston may be asked to take another pay cut this offseason in order to stay with the team. He is scheduled to make $3.2 million in 2016 and have a $5.9 million salary cap figure.

Fantasy Tip: Colston probably will be a No. 3 wide receiver if he remains with the Saints. Colston finished this season with 520 yards and four touchdowns. He likely will go undrafted in most leagues next season but could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston will not play

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 15:19:48 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (chest) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for the Week 17 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Brandin Cooks ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) and Willie Snead ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) likely will receive a majority of the targets during the game. They will be facing a tough Falcons secondary but could still be decent options for owners in most fantasy leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston does not practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 16:46:47 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (chest) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) probably will not play in Week 17 if he does not practice Friday, Jan. 1, so owners should monitor his situation. Colston has caught three touchdowns in his last three games but is not a great option if he is active.

Saints | Drew Brees, Marques Colston out

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:54:09 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (foot) and WR Marques Colston (chest) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Brees ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) proved he could successfully play through his foot injury last week. However, he's a bust candidate against the strong secondary of the Atlanta Falcons this week. Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has three touchdowns in the last two games, but he's also a candidate to fade as a sleeper on FantasyScore.

Saints | Marques Colston ruled out

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 11:57:22 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (chest) has been declared inactive for the Week 16 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Brandin Cooks ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and Willie Snead ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) should receive most of the targets against the Jaguars. Both players have posted good numbers this season and could be fine starting options in most leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston won't play Sunday

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 07:53:57 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (chest) will not play in Week 16's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) did not practice at all during the week and was listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Remove him from all fantasy lineups.

Saints | Marques Colston questionable for Week 16

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 18:56:34 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (chest) did not practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as questionable to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has three touchdowns in the last two games, but he has been held under 40 receiving yards in nine of his last 10. He is a total shot-in-the-dark play at FantasyScore.

Saints | Marques Colston, Benjamin Watson out

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 15:41:51 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (chest) and TE Benjamin Watson (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Dec. 23. The Saints didn't actually practice Wednesday, so the report is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) typically sits out Wednesdays. Watson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Colston both have a nice matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it might not matter if Drew Brees (foot) can't play. Without him, both Colston and Watson are weak daily picks.

Saints | Marques Colston gets into end zone

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 22:53:01 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston posted two receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown with four targets in the Week 15 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Colston had one touchdown over his first 11 games, but he has found the end zone three times in the past two games. Still, he should be treated as a WR3 or flex FantasyScore option going forward.

Saints | Marques Colston probable

Sat, 19 Dec 2015 13:42:14 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) practiced fully Saturday, Dec. 19, and is probable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) really hasn't been productive enough to consider against the Detroit Lions on FantasyScore Monday night.

Saints | Marques Colston practices in full

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 16:10:40 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should be fine for the Week 15 against the Detroit Lions and probably will see a solid amount of targets during the game. He is coming off a two-touchdown game in Week 14 but may not be the best option for owners this week.

Saints | No practice for Marques Colston

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 15:39:09 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: This was probably just a rest/maintenance day for Colston ($2,800, 5.6% of cap), so he should be good to go Monday night. Despite a two-touchdown performance last game, he's still not a reliable starting option on FantasyScore.

Saints | Marques Colston grabs two scores

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 17:00:31 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston had six catches for 36 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 24-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Colston entered the game with just one score on the year, and he failed to reach 40 yards for the fifth straight game and the eighth time in his last nine games. You can't count on touchdowns to salvage his otherwise lackluster performances.

Saints | Willie Snead, Marques Colston probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 14:47:13 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Willie Snead (calf) and Marques Colston (non-injury) are both listed as probable against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14. Snead was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 11, while Colston was a full participant.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints should have to throw often in what's expected to be a high-scoring affair. Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) missed last week and had cooled off before that, but he's still more attractive as a sleeper pick than Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap), who hasn't had more than three catches in a game since Nov. 1.

Saints | Marques Colston has full practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:43:10 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could be the Saints' primary wide receiver this week in light of Brandin Cooks' concussion. If Cooks is ruled out, Colston is at least a viable WR3 for your FantasyScore lineups, and he won't cost much either.

Saints | Marques Colston rests Wednesday

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 15:39:39 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) received his regular day off today. If Willie Snead ($3,400, 6.8%) misses this weekend's game Colston could see more action, but he's not a reliable FantasyScore option.

Saints | Mark Ingram, Marques Colston probable

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 14:56:59 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) and WR Marques Colston (non-injury) both practiced in full Friday, Dec. 4, and are probable in Week 13 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are a tough matchup for the Saints all-around, making Ingram ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) and Colston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) tough sells on FantasyScore. The Saints may try to involve the running game more with Willie Snead unlikely to play, but paying up for Ingram doesn't seem wise in this one.

Saints | Two Saints have full practice

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 14:59:59 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) and WR Marques Colston (non-injury) were full participants in practice Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: The Carolina Panthers have been accommodating to running backs in the passing game, which favors Ingram ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) this week. He should be viewed as a RB2 on FantasyScore. Colston ($3,000, 6.0%) has been consistently inconsistent throughout 2015, so he should be avoided, unless Willie Snead doesn't play.

Saints | Two Saints WRs miss practice

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 16:48:23 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Marques Colston (non-injury) and Willie Snead (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Colston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Snead ($3,400, 6.8%), the Carolina Panthers have been one of the better fantasy defenses against wide receivers this year. Snead has more upside than Colston, but neither of these guys should be at the top of your FantasyScore priority list.

Saints | Willie Snead, Marques Colston good to go

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 15:55:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Willie Snead (knee) and Marques Colston (non-injury) are listed as probable for Week 10 against the Washington Redskins. Snead was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 13, while Colston was a full participant.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is the much better value play on FantasyScore in a PPR format; he has at least seven targets in the last three weeks and has back-to-back weeks of six catches. Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a sleeper play in a flex spot against a Washington secondary that can be exploited by Drew Brees.

Saints | Marques Colston has full practice

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:45:49 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) may have an increased workload in Week 10 if Willie Snead is sidelined. This situation will need to be tracked going into the weekend, but Colston could be a good flyer on FantasyScore this week.

Saints | No practice for Marques Colston

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 16:36:44 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: This was probably just a typical veteran's day off for Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), so he should still be active this week. He has a favorable matchup with the Washington Redskins, but he has been much too inconsistent this year. Invest at your own risk on FantasyScore.

Saints | Marques Colston listed as probable

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 15:14:53 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 6, and is listed as probable for the Week 9 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) had his best game of the season in Week 8 when he caught eight passes for 114 yards but has been inconsistent this season. He could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find better options in most leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston a full participant

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 16:49:31 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) had a breaking out party last week, but he has been underwhelming overall in 2015. The low asking price is tempting, but don't expect another performance like the one he had in Week 8.

Saints | Two NO WRs don't practice

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 15:30:20 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Willie Snead (knee) and Marques Colston (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) was probably just given the day off, and the extent of Snead's knee injury was not clear. Snead ($4,400, 8.8%), specifically, should be tracked as the week continues. Saints' receivers do face a tough test in the Tennessee Titans, who have only yielded 1,017 yards to the position through seven games -- ranking sixth in the league.

Saints | Vintage Marques Colston in Week 8

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:16:39 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston had eight receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) hasn't had a game this good in a while, but proved he still has a little something left in the tank. The Tennessee Titans are the Week 9 opponent and they rank No. 2 in the NFL in pass defense, so be careful not to overvalue Colston in FantasyScore.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 30, and is listed as probable for the Week 8 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will be able to play against the Giants but has not done much over the last several weeks and is still looking for his first touchdown reception. Owners on FantasyScore probably should look for better options to use.

Saints | Marques Colston fully practices

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 14:56:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, $6.6% of cap) got a day of rest Wednesday, so he'll be good to go against the Giants this weekend. Colston has done little so far this season, so he shouldn't be seriously considered as a starter for FantasyScore lineups.

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 15:19:28 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) took the day off of practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has yet to score a touchdown or top 100 yards this year as he has quickly fallen down the receiving pecking order in New Orleans. He's strictly a sleeper pick in a flex spot on FantasyScore right now.

Saints | Marques Colston listed as probable

Fri, 23 Oct 2015 15:06:40 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is listed as probable for the Week 7 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) appears to be on track to play in Week 7 after missing the last game because of the injury. Owners probably should look for other options to use since Colston has not been very productive this season.

Saints | Marques Colston limited Thursday

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 15:30:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) missed last week's contest, but it looks like he'll be able to take the field in Week 7 barring any setbacks. The Saints could be in for a shootout with the Indianapolis Colts this weekend, but if Colston is limited at all he may not be worth the risk on FantasyScore. Willie Snead ($4,800, 9.6%) and Brandin Cooks ($6,400, 12.8%) would make better plays if Colston were limited.

Saints | Marques Colston listed as limited

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 16:08:35 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor Colston's ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) practice participation this week to see if he has a chance to play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7. He probably is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore because he has not caught any touchdowns and has recorded at least 50 yards only once this season.

Saints | Marques Colston out Thursday

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 16:11:41 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) is officially inactive for the Week 6 game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: With Colston out, Willie Snead ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) and Brandin Cooks ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) are fine picks in point-per-reception formats like FantasyScore. The Saints could have to pass often to keep up with the Falcons.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely will miss the Week 6 game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Oct. 15, so owners should look for other options to use.

Saints | Marques Colston listed as doubtful

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 14:19:03 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for the Week 6 game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Oct. 15. Colston is dealing with a slight shoulder separation, and the injury is not expected to be a long-term issue.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) probably will miss a few games because of the injury, so owners should avoid him for now. Willie Snead ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should continue to have a solid role in the passing game and could a starting option for owners.

Saints | No practice for Marques Colston

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 14:38:38 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear at this point if Colston ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will be able to play Thursday night versus the Atlanta Falcons. If he doesn't play, Brandin Cooks ($6,400, 12.8%) and Willie Snead ($4,800, 9.6%) will have slightly more value. Both are coming off stellar Week 5 performances and are worth strong consideration on FantasyScore.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) was listed as a DNP in the practice report Monday, Oct. 12, due to his shoulder ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is uncertain for the Week 6 game Thursday against Atlanta. It is best for FantasyScore players to avoid him for now.

Saints | Marques Colston has shoulder injury

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 11:43:14 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) has at least a separated shoulder and could have some structural damage in the shoulder, according to a source. Colston suffered the injury during the team's Week 5 game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for any updates on Colston over the next few days, but he probably will miss some time because of the injury. Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead likely will receive more targets while Colston is out and could be solid options for fantasy owners.

Saints | Marques Colston injures shoulder

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 17:41:34 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (shoulder) had three catches for 36 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5 before leaving with a shoulder injury. He was wearing a sling on his right arm after the game.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for more specifics on the injury, and although Colston ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is just a fringe option at FantasyScore at this point, Brandin Cooks ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) and Willie Snead ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) would see their value improve a bit if Colston is forced to miss time.

Saints | Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks probable

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 15:26:15 -0700

New Orleans Saints WRs Marques Colston (non-injury) and Brandin Cooks (ankle) both practiced in full Friday, Oct. 9, and are probable for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Coltson ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has fallen down the depth chart but does have four catches in each of the last three weeks. He could be a sleeper pick worth targeting against an Eagles team allowing the fourth-most PPR points (46.3) per game to wideouts. Cooks ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is an even better pick in PPR formats like FantasyScore.

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 15:42:33 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should be able to play against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5 after he received a day off from practice. Colston recorded only 19 yards in his last game but has posted decent stats in the early part of the year. Colston does have a favorable matchup against the Eagles, but owners may be able to find better options to use.

Saints | Marques Colston nearly invisible

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 22:35:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston posted four receptions for just 19 yards in the Week 4 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is obviously in the twilight of a fine career, as he has been surpassed by Willie Snead as the secondary option to Brandin Cooks in the passing game.
