Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston recorded a team-high 80 receiving yards during Week 16's loss to the Falcons.
Insight: Colston had six catches on 10 targets. He is not the player he once was.
 
12/16/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston was one of three Saints pass catchers with seven targets in a balanced offense.
Insight: The balance doesn't help any receiver post big numbers, but Colston did hit double-digits with five receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown. In his ninth season, Colston is a low-end fantasy option. He's only cracked the 100-yard mark twice this season and not since Week 7.
 
12/7/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston had a team-high 72 receiving yards during Week 14's loss to the Panthers.
Insight: Colston had five receptions, and is no more than a WR3 at this point in his career.
 
11/30/2014 7:35:00 PM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston had just 16 receiving yards but did catch a touchdown.
Insight: Colston was a forgotten man with Kenny Stills having a big day in Pittsburgh. Colston caught just three passes. He is a risky start moving forward because it is hard to predict where Drew Brees is going to go with the ball.
 
11/25/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston led the team with 56 receiving yards versus the Bengals.
Insight: Colston posted his best yardage total since Week 7 and scored for the first time since Week 3. That's solid work, though fantasy owners probably haven't been starting him because he has been unproductive over the past month.
 
11/16/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston led the team with 56 receiving yards versus the Bengals.
Insight: Colston also led the team with eight targets, but the fact the leading receiver for the high-powered Saints offense had 56 yards says how much it struggled in Week 11.
 
11/9/2014 6:36:00 PM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston had just two catches on Sunday.
Insight: Colston had 36 yards on four targets, and is really no more than a WR4.

Description: The handwriting is on the wall for Saints wide receiver Marques Colston's owners.
Insight: Colston just isn't a primary target anymore and his fantasy value, save for one big game in Week 7, has been minimal. Thursday night against Carolina he saw three targets, catching all of them, for 36 yards.
 
10/27/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston wasn't very active against Green Bay, catching four balls for 49 yards.
Insight: Colston had six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 7, but took a back seat to Brandin Cooks and even Kenny Stills in this one. As the young receivers grow, Colston's production is likely to be more and more inconsistent.
 
10/19/2014 7:17:00 PM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston led the team in catches, receiving yards and targets in Week 7 against the Lions.
Insight: Colston had six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets. He did not score, but fantasy owners will still take the production if Colston was in the lineup.

Description: No, Saints wideout Marques Colston wasn't injured Sunday when he failed to catch a pass for the first time in 87 games.
Insight: Colston was out there for 41-of-70 plays, but was blanketed by the Browns defense and didn't even see even a single target from Drew Brees.

Description: Saints wideout Marques Colston dealt with foot soreness throughout last season and the team will monitor his practice time during the 2014 season, coach Sean Payton said. SOURCE: Larry Holder, nola.com
Insight: Colston was disappointing for most of the year but was very good in the last four weeks, putting up 28 receptions for 347 yards and three touchdowns to finish with 75 catches, 943 yards and five TDs. The soon-to-be 31-year-old should be drafted as a WR3 at best in 2014.
 
12/15/2013 7:49:00 PM
Description: Saints wideout Marques Colston had 92 yards and a touchdown on eight catches Sunday against the Rams.
Insight: Colston is making a late run at 1,000 yards after disappointing fantasy owners for most of the season. He's turned in 17 receptions, 217 yards and three touchdowns the last two games and will go into the final two weeks with 64 catches, 813 yards and five scores.
 
11/10/2013 8:00:00 PM
Description: Saints wideout Marques Colston is officially active for Sunday's game against Dallas.
Insight: He sat out last week against the Jets because of a knee issue. Colston's streak of four consecutive 1,000-yard seasons will come to an end this year unless he has a monster second half.
 
11/3/2013 11:42:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (knee) has been made inactive and isn't going to play in Sunday's game.
Insight: The 30-year-old Colston has been a non-factor in fantasy leagues the last three games, catching six passes on 11 targets for 44 yards. At least now you can put someone in the lineup that might produce.
 
11/2/2013 10:58:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (knee) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game.
Insight: The 30-year-old Colston has been a nonfactor in fantasy leagues the last three games, catching six passes on 11 targets for 44 yards. Even if he's healthy enough to play in Week 9 against the Jets, fantasy owners should bench him.
 
10/30/2013 4:53:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
Insight: Colston has been a nonfactor in fantasy leagues the last three games, catching six passes on 11 targets for 44 yards. Even if he's healthy enough to play in Week 9 against the Jets, fantasy owners should bench him.
 
8/22/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (foot) is active for Week 3 versus Arizona.
Insight: Colston's plantar fasciitis has lingered since last season and caused him to miss more than a dozen practices this training camp, but he's been ready for every game this season. Start him as always.
 
8/21/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (foot) practiced Monday and Tuesday but admitted he's not 100 percent healthy, according to NOLA.com.
Insight: "That's OK," Colston said. "I'm working towards it. I still have couple of weeks yet. I'm still taking my time with it." Colston's plantar fasciitis has lingered since last season and caused him to miss more than a dozen practices this training camp, but he's expected to be ready for Week 1.
