Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 15 vs NYJ (5 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)

Normally a player does something really good to make this recap list, but this week Coleman is added for causing 3 turnovers by himself. The Saints offense could have easily put the Jets away early and cruised to a victory, but Coleman decided he wanted to make the game closer. Coleman fumbled and lost the ball twice, and had a Drew Brees pass tip off his hands for an interception. Despite the poor play, Coleman still ranked 4th in targets this week and figures to play a big role as long as Ted Ginn is out.

2017 Week 10 vs BUF (4 / 1 / 30 / 0 rec)

Coleman is a mere blip on the stat sheet this week with his 1 catch. However, that catch was huge as it came on a 3rd and 13 play and helped to set up a Mark Ingram touchdown. Coleman worked his way across the field from right to left and caught the ball just in front of the safeties. He followed a Michael Thomas block and broke another tackle for 30 total yards. He was targeted 3 other times but failed to make any of the catches. Coleman and Ted Ginn seem to trade big plays each week and it was Coleman's turn to make one against Buffalo.

2017 Week 8 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 54 / 0 rec)

Just like Ted Ginn, Coleman only had one big play on the day. On the third play of the game, Coleman took a screen pass 54 yards down the sideline and helped set up the Saints first touchdown. Coleman easily evaded the diving effort from the first Bear's defender and was only caught from behind as he began to stumble on his own. Coleman had a clear path to the end zone and appeared to simply trip over his own feet as he tried to not step out of bounds. This easily could have been a much bigger play, but still resulted in a Saints' touchdown. Coleman was not targeted again in the game and continues to serve a similar role to Ted Ginn.

2017 Week 7 vs GB (3 / 2 / 31 / 1 rec)

With all the big-name weapons for the Saints, it is nice to see someone else score from time to time. Coleman was a non-factor for most of the game, except for his touchdown catch. Drew Brees was able to freeze the corner with a pump fake and then lay the perfect pass into Coleman's arms in the end zone before the safety could get over to cover. This 22-yard catch accounted for more than half of Coleman's yards on the day and helped lead the Saints to their fourth straight win.

2017 Week 2 vs NE (6 / 4 / 82 / 1 rec)

Brandon Coleman has a big game today as he was the main beneficiary of the Patriots fixation on Michael Thomas. Coleman scored on a perfectly thrown outside shoulder fade and also connected with Brees on a 42-yard run and catch to help set up a field goal. Coleman received the third most targets on the team but most importantly was able to cash one of those in for a touchdown. As teams begin to throw additional coverage on Thomas and Fleener it appears it will big a mix of Coleman, Tommylee Lewis, and Ted Ginn who receive the additional targets.
