Marques Colston had 6 catches for 111 yards on 10 targets in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: After a rough start,Marques Colston is starting to look like his old, reliable form. With the number of targets he has seen over the past few games, he will remain in the conversation as a solid WR2.

Colston had 3 catches for 63 yards on 6 targets Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was another productive day for Colston, although slightly disappointing he was only able to convert half his targets. Depending on Jimmy Graham's injury, Colston could be in line for an increased number of targets.

Marques Colston had 5 catches for 50 yards on 10 targets Sunday against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: A disappointing night for Colston, only being able to haul in half of his targets. The good news is it was another night of high targets in the passing game, solidifying his status as a low WR2 in most leagues.

Colston finished with 2 catches for 25 yards and 1 touchdown Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: While the 4th quarter TD saved his stat line for this week, Colston was once again a non factor for the offense, receiving only 5 targets. Look for him to get back on track in Week 4 against a weak Cowboys D.

Colston finished with no catches on zero targets on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: A very big surprise that Colston produced nothing on Sunday for owners, considering Joe Haden was matched up on Graham for most of the game, leaving Colston one on one against lesser defenders. While no targets seems like an anomaly, it will be worth hearing what Coach Payton has to say throughout the week.

Marcus Colston had 5 catches for 110 yards and a fumble against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the bad fumble at the end of the game, Colston remained a top target of QB Drew Brees, finishing tied for second on the team with 8 targets. He remains a solid WR2 in all leagues.

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.
