From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Colston probably wanted to be invisible after losing a fumble in overtime last week. Maybe his wish came true. The Browns sold out to take away downfield passing and Colston should bounce back against Minnesota at home, but this game will give us pause when deciding whether to start Colston for the next few weeks at least.

Week 3: vs Minnesota Vikings

Saints | Browns shut down Saints' passing game (Mon Sep 15, 02:19 PM) - New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston, who didn't catch a pass in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns for the first time in 87 games, wasn't even targeted a single time. The Browns made it their mission to shut the Saints' downfield passing game down, and Cleveland had seven defensive backs on the field at once at times. WR Brandin Cooks was held to just three catches for 17 yards, and the four receivers combined for nine catches for 79 yards.

Saints | Marques Colston shut out (Mon Sep 15, 09:25 AM) - New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston was held without a reception Sunday, Sept. 14. It was the first time he didn't record a catch in a game since 2008.

Our View: Colston has had a rough start to begin the 2014 season. The fumble in Week 1 cost the Saints the game, and now this. We'll see if the veteran can bounce back in the coming weeks and be that solid-yet-unspectacular WR2 he's been for years.
