Marques Colston was limited in Wednesday's practice with an ongoing foot injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice but it's unknown if this is just a precaution or something more serious. Colston has been dealing with the injury for at least a couple of weeks and was questionable for the Saints week 1 game against the Redskins, but he has not missed any time because of it. He so far has just seven catches for 120 yards through two games.

Fantasy Analysis: Colston is one of the most consistent wide receivers in the NFL, going for over 1,000 yards in five of his six seasons, while only missing 1,000 yards once when he had 760 yards in only eleven games. It's difficult to know just how much the Saints gameplan on offense has changed though, as Darren Sproles already has 18 catches through two games and has been the favorite target of Drew Brees. How much could Colston's fantasy value be hurt if he becomes the third-favorite target after Sproles and Jimmy Graham? It's something we will have to monitor.
