Fantasy Impact: It looked like the rest helped Saturday night against the Colts. Colston was targeted 6 times and made two big catches, one for a TD and a 12-yard catch on a third-and-8. If healthy, Colston could put up 1,000 yards and 8 TDs. Not bad for a 6th/7th round pick.

Marques Colston caught a 13 yard TD pass in Saturday's preseason matchup. He finished the night with 2 catches for 25 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Colston is not done people. He struggled last year with injuries, as he has been often to do. If he can change that for this year, Colston will pay mighty dividends for his current ADP price of 81. He is the 3rd best receiving option behind Graham and Thomas and he is no stranger to the end-zone.

Fantasy Impact: Colston has a proven record and connection with Drew Brees. He has put up several excellent fantasy seasons. We haven't heard much offseason news from him, likely in part because of the Brandin Cooks hype. Seemingly healthy, Colston could be a draft steal at his current ADP of 81.

Marques Colston did not suit up for the Saints' second preseason game. The reason is not known at this time, but it's a good bet that the veteran is simply getting some rest. (Source: Larry Holder on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Colston has been a quiet name all training camp long with rookie Brandin Cooks catching the big buzz. Colston is still a proven veteran and a wideout that Drew Brees loves to throw to. The crafty WR currently has an ADP of 81 and would be an excellent value pick in that range.

Still a factor in a potent offense but has been dealing with health issues. He's no more than a middle ground WR2 now.
The New York Times | Aug 27th
70/950/6 seems about right as he enters his 9th season with the Saints.
The Football Girl | Aug 27th
A lot of smart people think he's being underrated, but age (31) starting to show.
The Fake Football | Aug 26th
His knees are made of of old barbed-wire and papier-mâché, but as long as he's on the field and moving, he's going to see productive targets from Brees.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 25th
He didn't find 1,000 yards last year, but did have 8 TD's so he is a solid bye week filler and injury spot starter.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 25th
Colston was in decline this year, finishing with 75 receptions for 943 yards and five receiving touchdowns. He has little upside at this point in his career, even with QB Drew Brees throwing him the ball. I initially thought both Stills and Cooks would pass him, but Stills is becoming more dicey to me.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 25th
2o13 was the first season in the past 7 years that Colston failed to reach the 1,000-yard plateau. Colston has been a solid producer with Brees over the years and we can expect him to bounce back after a down season. Over the past seven seasons, Colston had produced at least 80-plus receptions in 6 of those 7 years. With the down production from 2013, Colston is likely to slip through the rounds allowing you to draft a solid No.2 or No.3 fantasy wide receiver with a ton of upside in a system that is going to throw a ton with a future hall of fame quarterback in Drew Brees.
Legion Report | Aug 25th
Sneaky play for 1000 yards in the Saints moderate strength of schedule against the pass, the 31 year old says the plantar fasciatis that has plagued his last few seasons is completely healed. I’m not taking the gamble on him in the middle rounds, though.

Ranking may be a little low but there is just so much talent at WR this year

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) We have to give Marques Colston credit, he has been consistent in his production: He’s only had one season with fewer than 70 receptions (47 in 2008, but that came in just 11 games) Last season was the second
