Marques Colston had quiet fantasy game Sunday against Champ Bailey

Byron Hetzler-US PRESSWIRE

Champ Bailey shut down Marques Colston and proved that he's still got it at his age. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston went into Sunday Night Football in Week 8 as one of the hottest receivers in the league. He left the game with his quietest performance since Week 3, thanks to Denver Broncos CB Champ Bailey.

Bailey did a fine job shutting down Colston, who was held to five catches for 63 yards in the Saints' huge blowout loss.

Fantasy Impact: Colston had a 14-yard catch late in garbage time with Bailey out to salvage his stat line, but it was a great performance by the ageless Bailey, who keeps building a Hall of Fame resume.

Colston disappointed fantasy owners this week, but he'll get another chance against the Eagles in Week 9. Keep starting him as a WR1.
