WR Marques Colston - New Orleans Saints
|6-4, 223||Born: 6-5-1983||College: Hofstra||Drafted: Round 7|
News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Nov 25): Colston looked as physical and spry against the Ravens as he has in years. The Saints don't face a tough pass defense the rest of the way, so he could be a very nice WR3/Flex play going forward.

2014 Week 10 vs SF (4 / 2 / 36 / 0 rec)
Colston has a bad case of the dropsies this season and with each new drop the frustration builds. If it continues, Colston is going to see his role in the offense further minimized in favor of Graham and Cooks who are both playing at a higher level right now. Colston had a key 3rd-and-7 conversion that he bobbled a couple times but was finally able to haul in for a 12-yard-gain down the left sideline. Near the end of the first half facing a 3rd-and-4, Colston ran a go route down the right sideline and burned Safety Eric Reid in coverage and was a couple yards behind the 49ers deepest man. Brees threw a perfect pass that bounced right off of Colston's hands. It should have been an 80-yard-TD catch but instead led to a punt. Colston did make a huge play on the Saints final TD drive. Facing 4th-and-3 from the San Francisco 34-yardline, Colston lined up in the slot and was able to get open for the catch a couple yards past the 1st down marker. He was able to accelerate and made a nice run after the catch, dragging a couple defenders the final few yards.
2014 Week 11 vs CIN (8 / 4 / 56 / 0 rec)
Colston led the Saints in targets and receiving yards but did most of his damage on one drive in the 2nd quarter. He found a hole in the Bengals coverage on a deep crossing route and reached far away from his body to snag a slightly off-target pass from Brees for a 16-yard pickup. Two plays later, Colston had a beautiful catch for another 16-yard gain. With Bengals CB Adam Jones in tight coverage, Brees threw it high and wide down the left sideline and Colston was able to extend high to make the catch with his hands while keeping both toes barely in bounds at the Bengals 10-yard-line. The play was challenged but the replay confirmed he was able to barely keep his toes in the green. Colston did have one key drop again on a 3rd down crossing route. He had the ball bounce off his hands right at the first down marker on a dangerous play in which he was crossing the field at full speed and a Bengals CB was waiting to take him out low if he had been able to haul the pass in.
2014 Week 12 vs BAL (4 / 4 / 82 / 1 rec)
Colston saw a nice bump in playing time and led the Saints WRs with 92% of the offensive snaps. Colston made two big plays in the Saints two minute drill before halftime. He made a leaping 19-yard grab down the middle to get the Saints to the Ravens' 26. After a spike, he caught the 26-yard touchdown bass from Brees down the left seam. Brees placed the ball right between the CB trailing Colston and the Safety trying to get over from the middle of the field in time to make the play and Colston made a difficult catch in traffic to come down with the score.
