New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Coltson is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Colston has been dealing with a foot injury. He was held out of practice on Wednesday and was a limited participant in Thursday and Friday practices. He should play on Sunday, but interim coach Aaron Kromer would not commit one way or the other. The Saints will already be without No. 4 wide receiver Adrian Arrington.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners who drafted Marques Colston expected him to an every-week starter, so this injury is definitely one to keep an eye on. He is a very risky play. Even if he plays, it's unlikely that he will be at full strength for this contest. The Redskins present a friendly matchup, but Colston may not be healthy enough to take advantage. Lance Moore is a worthy starter as the Saints top pass catcher if Colston can't go.
