2013 Fantasy Outlook: Marques Colston
Marques Colston | New Orleans Saints | WR
2013 Experience: 8th Season
|Twitter News||Team Schedule|
Fantasy Football Outlook: I’ve never been much of a Colston fan, but at the end of the day you can’t argue with his production over the years. A worthy WR2 option, I tend to pass on him at that price for another receiver with better upside as Colston will tend to give you his normal numbers without much upside.
He’s currently going in the 4th round of 12 team leagues and I recommend you see if he can drop a round or two below that or let someone else grab him.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
Marques Colston had his chance to leave town, but opted to sign a five-year deal to stay in New Orleans. This was a smart move from the veteran and his WR2 value remains intact.
Colston will have his slow stretches, but he has a productive track record. Consider him a low risk, low upside selection on draft day.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
That’s it, count me out as a believer of Colston as a top twenty receiver going forward as he had microfracture knee surgerythis off-season and had the same procedure done on his opposite knee just two years ago. In fact, Colston has had five knee surgeries in his five year career with the Saints. If you look down at the full season numbers for Colston his stats aren’t horrible, but he got off to a really bad start last season and seems to get lost in this offense at times.It should be surprising that Colston can be inconsistent for a player who is viewed at to be a No.1 type of receiver for fantasy as the Saints’ love to spread the football around. Heading into the summer, Colston’s ADP value on Mock Draft Central is 12th best receiver (33.70 overall) to take in PPR leagues and the 12th best (35.32 overall) in standard leagues.
Those rankings are too high in my mind for a guy with some many knee problems and his troubles with consistency through a full season in recent years. Let another poor sap in your league deal with Colston at that price and go with a player with more upside like Mike Wallace of the Steelers or even Steve Johnson of the Bills.

Marques Colston is the clear No.1 receiver in New Orleans. Look for the veteran to have a product season once again in 2010.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Last season Marques Colston was coming off his first disappointing campaign in his career as a week one injury cost him around half the year. While Colston may have failed, he rebound in 2009 with another productive season as he had over 1,000 yards receiving and nine touchdowns.
In one of the best passing offenses in football, Colston is in good hands with the talent he has around him.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Colston has had at least eight touchdowns and over 1,000 yards in three of the four years he’s played. Outside of injury one has to believe that this talented pass catcher will play up to those standards once again in 2010.
Colston isn’t a speedster that is going to make a tone of big plays down the field, but he is one of Drew Brees’s favorite targets. This makes Colston the top receiving option in New Orleans and a fine selection at your fantasy draft.
