Fantasy football start/sit, Week 12: Marques Colston improving as an option

Chris Graythen

Marques Colston came back to life over the past couple weeks. Should you start him against the Falcons?

With all the the weapons on the New Orleans Saints, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some of their guys are going to have bad days. It’s been mostly sunny for receiver Marques Colston lately with his last two games going for averages of 93.5 yards and 0.5 scores on 6.0 receptions.

Before this two-game stretch, Colston was a ghost in the stat sheet. He didn’t top 20 receiving yards or three reception in any of his previous three games, failing to catch a TD in any of those. It might have been due to an injury that kept him out of Week 9, which makes sense since that is when the turnaround came.

Kenny Stills had a little blip on the radar, but he’s cooled off and Colston looks to be in the clear as the top wide receiver. Of course, Jimmy Graham is still Drew Brees’ go-to guy.

Fantasy impact: Colston owners should have seen enough out of his last two games to have some confidence in putting him back in their lineups this week.
