Marques Colston WR NO 8 Months

Marques Colston led Saints receivers by playing on 51-of-72 snaps (70.8 percent) in Saturday's win over the Eagles.

Colston's surprisingly low two targets were not a result of reduced playing time. The Saints took an effective run-heavy approach in the bitter cold as they nursed a lead for much of the game, leading to no one going over 44 receiving yards. We can safely expect a ton more targets for Colston in the Divisional Round as the Seahawks have been installed as eight-point favorites. Making plays against the Legion of Boom is another story, of course, as Colston had a 4/27/0 line on seven targets when these teams met in Week 13.

Jimmy Graham led the unit with 86 catches, nine more than runner-up Pierre Thomas. Marques Colston tallied 75, and Darren Sproles had 71. The overall team production was outstanding, but fantasy consistency was elusive for Saints skill-position players throughout the regular season, and this explains why. "Spread the wealth," said a smiling Drew Brees when told of the stat.

Marques Colston caught four passes for 40 yards in New Orleans' Week 12 win over the Falcons.

Colston drew only six targets on a night where Drew Brees attempted "just" 33 passes. Brees simply wasn't locking on to any one pass catcher, targeting six players at least three times. Colston looked healthy, and had little trouble gaining separation from Falcons CB Desmond Trufant. Colston will be a low-end WR3 against the Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" secondary in Week 13.
