New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston is listed as questionable, but informed NFL Network's Albert Breer that he will play Sunday against the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston informed NFL Network's Albert Breer that he plans on playing Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Colston is listed as questionable with a foot injury, but has been able to play through the first two weeks.

Fantasy Impact: The Saints face a Chiefs team that is struggling mightily in the secondary. Even with Brandon Flowers back, the team's defense is not in good shape. The Saints will be playing at home on the turf, which should further speed up a game that could end up as a shootout. With neither defense playing particularly well, both teams will likely be forced to air it out for much of Sunday. That bodes well for any and all Saints and Chiefs.
