New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston was limited in Sunday's loss. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston had a less-than-stellar day in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. In Week 3, Colston finished with three catches for 40 yards and no scores. It was a disappointing game for the team, and especially for the Colston-Brees connection.

Fantasy Analysis: Colston is the No. 1 wide receiver in the Saints offense, but the team is currently enduring some difficult times. The offense as a whole is struggling and it's been costing the Saints' offensive players consistency as fantasy contributors. Colston is one of a few big-name players that has not yet performed up to par. He had a below-average day in Week 3, but remains a must-start because of his potential.
