Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs CLE (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

For the first time in 86 games, Colston did not catch a pass. Despite playing over half of the offensive snaps, Colston was not even targeted against the Browns. The Browns seemed to put stopping the Saints downfield passing game as the top priority and Colston suffered because of it.

2014 Week 3 vs MIN (5 / 2 / 25 / 1 rec)

Colston had an up and down afternoon and again was not a big part of the game plan. He had a bad drop on what would have been a 20-yard gain that caused a 3rd quarter drive to stall. Colston responded a couple drives later with a few really nice catches. He used his hands to reach away from his body to snag a ball in traffic and then turn and reach for the first down. Made a nice double move to get open inside the five yard line and then bullied his way into the end zone through a pair of Vikings DBs for the touchdown.

2014 Week 4 vs DAL (10 / 5 / 50 / 0 rec)

Colston had an up and down day with a couple nice catches sandwiched in between some costly drops. He dropped a catchable ball on what would have been a 13-yard gain on the third offensive play, but his defender was called for illegal contact so the Saints were able to pick up some yardage on the play. Later, Colston lined up in the slot and got open down the seam for an easy throw and catch for 22 yards. Brees targeted Colston four straight plays late in the 3rd quarter. The first play, Colston had another drop on a quick slant on 3rd and 2. The pass was ruled incomplete but was very close to a fumble as Colston pulled the ball in and took a step before the LB swatted it out. Brees came right back to Colston the next play on 4th and 2 on a little drag route underneath. Brees threw it behind him, but Colston was able to snag it with one arm and pick up the first down. The next play, Colston ran a deep post that Brees badly overthrew before again coming back to Colston for a 9-yard gain on a short out route. Colston was more involved in the offense than in previous weeks but the combination of poor throws from Brees and a couple bad drops by Colston limited his productivity.

Saints | Marques Colston struggling (Mon Sep 29, 04:25 PM) - New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston has struggled quite a bit during the first month of the season and seems to disappear at times. He had a late-game fumble against the Atlanta Falcons, was completely invisible against the Cleveland Browns and his play against the Dallas Cowboys was up and down.

Our View: The entire Saints offense struggled against a better-than-expected Cowboys defense. We'll see if he can get back on the right track, but fantasy owners have to start looking elsewhere when considering a WR2 or flex play each week.
