Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 17 vs ATL (3 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Coleman's lone reception came on a short out route to the right sideline when he was filling in for a shaken-up Willie Snead.
2016 Week 14 vs TB (8 / 5 / 47 / 0 rec)
Coleman's first catch occurred early in the second quarter, a quick slant from the left boundary in which he was dealt a hard hit and picked up six. He converted a third-and-short opportunity on an identical route from the opposite side, picking up nine in the process. Coleman provided a safety valve from a scrambling Brees later in the series, gaining nine yards in the right flat. He ran a short crosser early in the third quarter, gaining an easy seven yards underneath soft zone coverage. Coleman made an impressive catch with a defender draped over him late in the fourth, using his ample stature to box out the smaller CB for 16 yards. Coleman responded admirably from an increased role without Michael Thomas, but is a mere possession option rather than a playmaker.
2016 Week 12 vs LA (1 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)
Coleman continued his red zone success with a three-yard TD late in the first quarter, running a slant from the right side of the formation and breaking open in the back of the end zone.
2016 Week 11 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 9 / 1 rec)
Coleman's lone catch of the night came early in the fourth quarter, a fade route from the left slot in which he out-leaped his man coverage for a sky-scraping nine yard TD. He came very close to securing a deep reception on the following drive, but was unable to complete the catch process to the ground to set up a punt.
2016 Week 10 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Coleman's lone catch came midway through the first quarter, a fairly crucial third down conversion in which he ran a vertical route from the left slot. He won outside leverage and received a perfect throw for 19 yards.
2016 Week 9 vs SF (2 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Coleman's first catch came across the formation on a short PA route to the left flat, gaining six underneath the defense. Midway through the fourth quarter, Coleman ran a short crosser from the left slot, cutting underneath two teammates before receiving the football on the run to earn 19 yards and easily move the chains. He is the clear fourth WR on the depth chart given Tommylee Lewis' inactive designation.
2016 Week 8 vs SEA (2 / 2 / 44 / 0 rec)
Coleman's first action came early in the second quarter, a short hitch route to the right seam for six yards. He showed a lack of awareness, however, falling a yard short of the first-down marker in Seattle's red zone. His second and final catch came midway through the third quarter, a deep pass up the left sideline off a flea-flicker in which he took advantage of Richard Sherman's aggressiveness to run by him for a 38-yard gain.
2016 Week 7 vs KC (1 / 1 / 10 / 1 rec)
Coleman's touchdown reception came on an extended play in which he was able to find a vacant zone between two defenders for the clutch ten-yard TD reception late in the fourth quarter.
2016 Week 6 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Coleman's lone catch came late in the first quarter, a short hitch to the left slot underneath the coverage for six yards.
2016 Week 4 vs SD (3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Coleman crossed over the middle on New Orleans' first drive of the game, picking up eleven in a small void in San Diego's zone. He didn't receive his next catch until late in the fourth quarter, running a shallow crosser for six yards. Coleman isn't dynamic in any area of the game.
2016 Week 3 vs ATL (8 / 7 / 78 / 0 rec)
Coleman sat down in a soft zone with a short hitch in the right seam for a six-yard gain on the team's opening drive. He found wide open grass down the right sideline later on the drive, picking up 28 yards and moving his team into the redzone. Coleman came across the formation midway through the second period off play-action for six yards to move the ball deep into Atlanta territory. He stayed involved late in the first half, running a short hitch route from the left slot for nine yards underneath the coverage. He ran a very similar route early in the third period, sitting down in a soft spot for 11 yards. Another hitch gave Coleman seven more on the following drive. The same route from the opposite side of the formation earned 11 midway through the final period when the Saints were in desperation mode. Coleman wasn't asked to make plays on Monday, rather, he was asked to run to a spot, catch the ball and fall down in place of favored option Willie Snead.
2016 Week 2 vs NYG (4 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Coleman entered the statistical column on New Orleans' two-minute drill before halftime, running a short hitch route up the left sideline before diving forward for a gain of five. His second and final catch on his team's final drive, in crunch time, when he sat down in a small void in New York's zone and hauled in a precise pass for ten yards. Coleman was the target deep into enemy territory later in the game, almost making a terrific one-handed catch on his back-shoulder, but the pass fell incomplete and New Orleans settled for a tying field goal. His increased opportunities from last week is a good sign that he's secure on the New Orleans roster, but he's still a distant fourth on the WR depth chart.
