New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston runs after the catch against the San Francisco 49ers - Chris Graythen

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston caught five passes for 80 yards in the Week 11 win over the San Francisco 49ers. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston caught five passes for 80 yards in the Week 11 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Colston led all Saints receivers in a game where only tight end Josh Hill caught a touchdown pass. Robert Meachum was the second leading receiver with two catches for 78  yards while rookie Kenny Stills caught one pass for 11 yards. Colston led all wide receivers in targets with eight and is still the Saints leading wideout in yards with 39 receptions for 529 yards and two touchdowns. Still has 20 receptions for 448 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: With so many options in the passing game you have to pick your poison with the Saints receivers though it appears Colston is back in the driver's seat as Brees favorite target among wideouts. Unfortunately for Colston owners, Brees also throws to his running backs and  the Jimmy Graham factor cannot be discounted. The Saints will face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12 and they are giving up the sixth most fantasy points to wide receivers.
