Summary

Marques Colston has had an incredible career with the Saints and enters his 10th season at the age of 32. Just ahead of the opening of training camp, he was placed on the PUP list. The injury was undisclosed and he can be activated at any time. The veteran has had a history of minimized practice sessions and this could be just protecting the player and allowing the Saints to evaluate their abundant inexperienced wide receivers. Even though he has had six seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving, he has not reached that mark the past two years and has seen his targets, receptions and yards all decline. Colston has never been a speed receiver and instead relies on using his height and strength to his advantage. Even with the loss of Kenny Stills and Jimmy Graham from last year's team, Colston should not be expected to see production increase. He has also had multiple knee issues over his career, but has only missed four games in the past six seasons. He is the Saints' all-time leader in receiving TDs scored with 68 (39th in the NFL) and in receiving yards with 9,239 yards (52nd in the NFL). (July 29)

Saints | Marques Colston sees more work (Mon Aug 3, 01:36 PM) - New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) participated in some 7-on-7 drills during practice Monday, Aug. 3. Colston said he was taking things slow during practice since he started training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Our View: Colston is a seasoned vet, and he doesn't need a ton of reps in the preseason. We'll see him do more as the season draws closer. Fantasy owners should realize that Colston isn't quite the same as he used to be. His current ADP is WR46 (10.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston comes off PUP (Fri Jul 31, 01:42 PM) - New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) was activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 31, after three days.

Our View: That didn't take long. Colston is likely to get the "veteran treatment" during training camp. This means he'll get limited reps as the team wants to keep him healthy for the start of the regular season.

Saints | Marques Colston placed on PUP list (Tue Jul 28, 05:19 PM) - New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 28.

Our View: The Saints are just wisely being cautious with their veteran wide receiver. Many expected his training camp reps to be limited and monitored closely as there's no need to overwork such a seasoned player in camp.
