Description: Saints wideout Marques Colston dealt with foot soreness throughout last season and the team will monitor his practice time during the 2014 season, coach Sean Payton said. SOURCE: Larry Holder, nola.com
Insight: Colston was disappointing for most of the year but was very good in the last four weeks, putting up 28 receptions for 347 yards and three touchdowns to finish with 75 catches, 943 yards and five TDs. The soon-to-be 31-year-old should be drafted as a WR3 at best in 2014.

11/10/2013 8:00:00 PM
Description: Saints wideout Marques Colston is officially active for Sunday's game against Dallas.

11/3/2013 11:42:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (knee) has been made inactive and isn't going to play in Sunday's game.
Insight: The 30-year-old Colston has been a non-factor in fantasy leagues the last three games, catching six passes on 11 targets for 44 yards. At least now you can put someone in the lineup that might produce.
 
11/2/2013 10:58:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (knee) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game.
Insight: The 30-year-old Colston has been a nonfactor in fantasy leagues the last three games, catching six passes on 11 targets for 44 yards. Even if he's healthy enough to play in Week 9 against the Jets, fantasy owners should bench him.
 
10/30/2013 4:53:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
Insight: Colston has been a nonfactor in fantasy leagues the last three games, catching six passes on 11 targets for 44 yards. Even if he's healthy enough to play in Week 9 against the Jets, fantasy owners should bench him.
 
8/22/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (foot) is active for Week 3 versus Arizona.
Insight: Colston's plantar fasciitis has lingered since last season and caused him to miss more than a dozen practices this training camp, but he's been ready for every game this season. Start him as always.
 
8/21/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston (foot) practiced Monday and Tuesday but admitted he's not 100 percent healthy, according to NOLA.com.
Insight: "That's OK," Colston said. "I'm working towards it. I still have couple of weeks yet. I'm still taking my time with it."

12/30/2012 5:13:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston finished the season strong with two touchdowns and 52 yards on five catches.
Insight: Overall, Colston had 83 catches, 1,154 yards and 10 touchdowns. It's his seventh season in eight years with at least 70 catches, 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.
 
12/23/2012 5:06:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston's 10 receptions for 153 yards allowed him to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth straight season and the seventh time in eight years.
Insight: Colston is as predictable as the come these days. No matter what happens during the season, you can pencil him in for 80 catches, 1,000 yards and 7-9 touchdowns when things are said and done. He's at 78, 1,102 and eight with one game left.
 
10/8/2012 1:24:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston dominated against the Chargers on Sunday night, notching his second straight nine-catch game and snagging three touchdowns.
Insight: Colston scored for the first time this season last week and he added three more to go along with 131 yards. The receiver's knee didn't appear to be much of a problem. Colston has 18 catches for 284 yards and four TDs in his last two games and should continue to post solid fantasy lines with Jimmy Graham dealing with an ankle injury.
 
10/2/2012 4:21:00 PM
Description: According to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Saints receiver Marques Colston's foot injury might "nag at him all season."
Insight: Colston is a possession receiver so he doesn't rely on speed or quickness to be effective. He should be able to battle through the pain. After Sunday's big game, Colston is on pace for another 70-plus catch, 1,000-plus yard season, his sixth in seven years.
 
9/30/2012 8:04:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston showed up for the first time this season, recording a season-high nine catches and 153 yards and catching his first TD.
Insight: Colston can be inconsistent but he's put up at least 70 catches, 1,000 yards and seven TDs in five of his six pro seasons. Expect those numbers again this year.
 
9/23/2012 10:04:00 AM
Description: NFL Network's Albert Breer is reporting that Saints receiver Marques Colston will play Sunday against the Chiefs. Colston's has been limited in practice this week because of an injured foot.
Insight: Colston certainly won't be at 100 percent but he might not need to be to have a big game against a porous Kansas City secondary. It could just be a matter of whether or not Drew Brees looks in Colston's direction. Last week he was targeted just four times compared to 14 targets for Darren Sproles and 13 for Jimmy Graham.
 
9/21/2012 2:55:00 PM
Description: New Orleans wideout Marques Colston was limited again in Friday's practice, according to NFL.com.
Insight: Colston had the same problem in Week 1, missing practice, but played against Washington. At this point we don't expect him to miss time due to the foot, it appears to be the Saints taking precautions with their injury-prone receiver.
 
9/19/2012 3:25:00 PM
Description: New Orleans wideout Marques Colston was limited in Wednesday's practice, according to Mike Triplett of the Times-Picayune.

9/9/2012 11:50:00 AM
Description: New Orleans wideout Marques Colston is active and in the starting lineup for Sunday's season opener versus Washington.
Insight: Colston had the "questionable" label heading into this game after missing practice with a foot injury earlier in the week but now he has officially been cleared to play. Don't be surprised if Drew Brees finds him in the end zone for a touchdown or two in Week 1's clash against the Redskins.
 
9/9/2012 11:16:00 AM
Description: ESPN's Ed Werder says he saw Saints receiver Marques Colston (foot) warming up, an indication that he'll probably be in the starting lineup Sunday against the Redskins despite his status as "questionable."
Insight: Colston has been as consistent as they come for the Saints, producing five 1,000-yard campaigns in his six seasons in the league. He should be a solid fantasy starter from here on out.
 
9/5/2012 5:11:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Marques Colston didn't practice Wednesday due to a sore left foot, but it isn't considered serious.
Insight: Interim coach Aaron Kromer said he thinks all of his injured players will play Sunday, Colston included, according to Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
 
3/13/2012 3:10:00 PM
Description: Colston and the Saints agreed to a multi-year contract which assures fantasy owners that the wideout will continue to be a fantasy stud as long as he stays healthy.
Insight: The Brees-to-Colston hookup has resulted in an average of 74 receptions for 1,040 yards and eight touchdowns over the past six years. While tight end Jimmy Graham (149) and Darren Sproles (111) saw more targets than Colston (107), in the New Orleans offense there are enough passes to keep everyone happy.
