Marques Colston provided his fantasy football owners with a solid performance with seven receptions for 118 yards and one touchdown. He was six yards behind tight end Jimmy Graham for the team lead in receiving yards. Colston and Graham each received 11 targets from Brees, but the touchdown gave Colston the edge on Sunday.
Colston was averaging 53 receiving yards a game with 158 receiving yards on the season and zero touchdowns through his first five games of the 2011 NFL season. Colston's receiving yards per game is down nearly 15 yards per game.
Colston was ranked by Yahoo! as the 16th ranked wide receiver heading into Week 6 taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who rank 20th against the pass.
