Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs PIT (5 / 3 / 16 / 1 rec)

Colston had another drop, though not an egregious one, to start the game as a 3rd-and-10 pass hit him in the hands and fell incomplete. It was not an easy play, but one that you want your WR to be able to make. Colston had a later drop that was even more egregious. He ran a short out route and Brees put it right on the numbers but Colston bobbled it badly and flat out dropped it. At this point, it is fair to wonder whether the drops issue is inside Colston's head. He is fighting the ball and it would not be a surprise to see his opportunities in the Saints offense drop even further if he continues to struggle. Colston did redeem himself somewhat as he finished off the same drive on which he suffered his 2nd drop with a nice catch on a back shoulder fade from Brees for a 3-yard touchdown. Colston ran a quick out route against single coverage on 1st-and-goal and boxed out the defender to create space for Brees to throw it high and outside. Colston handled the rest, using his long arms to pull it in. Overall, despite the TD it was a poor performance from Colston and with the emergence of Kenny Stills (and to a lesser extent Nick Toon) it is hard to trust Colston as a fantasy option despite an attractive schedule for the fantasy playoffs.

2014 Week 14 vs CAR (7 / 5 / 72 / 0 rec)

It wouldn't have counted as the Saints were flagged for illegal formation, but Colston again dropped his first target of the game. It was a bit low, but he went down to the ground for it and it bounced right off his chest. Colston had a few garbage time catches and was targeted in the end zone late in the game, but Brees threw it too high. Overall, it was a forgettable day for Colston who continues to struggle with slow starts.

2014 Week 15 vs CHI (7 / 5 / 65 / 1 rec)

Colston played very well, making a couple tough catches and showing off some physicality that has been lacking in recent weeks. He delivered some blows to Bears defenders after the catch and made some contested catches including a 9-yard-touchdown grab right before halftime. With a defender draped all over him, Colston reached far away from his body to snag the ball with two hands and maintain possession to the ground despite the Bears CB having a hand on the ball and attempting to rip it out.
