Colston battled through a foot injury in the earlygoings of preseason, but managed to take the field for the team's third and fourth preseason games. The full participation and clean bill of health ever since indicates Colston will resume his duties as a top receiving option and potent red-zone threat for the Saints' passing attack.

Fantasy Spin: Colston has fought through his share of nagging injuries over the years, but has logged over 1,000 yards receiving in four straight seasons, and six out of his seven in the NFL. Smart money would be put on him repeating these numbers, and should he do so, he would be a solid WR2 on fantasy teams of all formats. That especially reigns true for Week 1 alone, where he has a juicy matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons.
