Marques Colston injury update: Foot injury shouldn't affect fantasy status

Chris Graythen

Marques Colston's foot injury shouldn't be much of an issue in Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Saints receiver Marques Colston (foot) is listed as probable to face the Falcons on Sunday. He was a full participant in practice all week and figures to play without limitation.

Colston has been one of the most consistent receivers in the NFL. He's been over 80 catches and 1,000 receiving yards in each of the last three seasons. He was targeted 132 times last season and ranked seventh with his 10th receiving TDs.

Fantasy impact: It's not going to be a 7-3 game in New Orleans. The Saints and Falcons haven't made many improvements on defense while their offenses added even more fire power. Colston has a chance to flirt with 10 receptions and is a good bet to hit paydirt. He's a must-start option this week and figures to serve as a low-end WR1 in PPR and standard leagues. His foot injury shouldn't cost him any games as is.
