New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston had two catches against the Houston Texans on Saturday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Coltson had a couple grabs Saturday against a very good Houston Texans defense. In the Week 3 preseason matchup, he had two catches for 28 yards. Colston--the No. 1 wide receiving target for Drew Brees and the New Orleans offense--looked to be in regular season form over the weekend.

Analysis: Colston is not in the upper-echelon of wide receiving options (i.e., Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Victor Cruz or Andre Johnson), but he has great value as a mid-round receiver. He has a great rapport with one of the league's best passers, and now with Robert Meachem in San Diego, Colston should see even get more targets in 2012. He is the best outside threat the Saints have on their roster, and could thrive with more responsibility this season.
