The Saints decided to rest him on Sunday against the Jets in what could have been a bit of a homecoming for Colston, who went to Hofstra University in Long Island, N.Y.
The Saints had some issues in the passing attack with the receivers, and replacement Kenny Stills was a massive letdown following a two-touchdown, 100-yard game in Week 8.
As for Colston, he's been a bit of a letdown all year, and the Saints might not even want to use him in his normal capacity assuming he's not at 100 percent. Before last week's absence, Colston had just six catches in three weeks combined.
Fantasy impact: It's nice that he's back in the lineup, but he's still too risky to play. Jimmy Graham will continue to do all the heavy lifting while Darren Sproles should get most of the short-yardage work. Stills owners should keep him unless it's to grab a hot free agent.
