News: Colston caught two passes on five targets for 25 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown reception, in Sunday's win against the Vikings. Impact: A week after he failed to catch a pass for the first time in 86 games, it was looking again like Colston could be shut out of the reception department before hauling in two late grabs, including the touchdown, to save the day for owners. He'll surely have nice performances going forward, but it's looking more like it's going to be difficult to trust the previously-reliable Colston on a weekly basis, with Jimmy Graham having clearly passed him in the receiving pecking order and Brandin Cooks -- who has 18 receptions through three games -- possibly having done so as well.(RotoWire, )

News: Colston failed to catch a pass in Sunday's loss in Cleveland, snapping an 86-game streak in which he caught at least one ball in a game he played, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Impact: Though he had a key drop and fumble in the Saints' season-opening loss in Atlanta, Colston managed an impressive 110 yards to kick off the season last week. Sunday's performance against the Browns, however, was a far cry from the type of performance the Saints and owners alike have grown accustomed to from Colston, as the last time he went without a catch was nearly six years ago. Drew Brees and the Saints have typically fared better at home than on the road, so after a 0-2 start to the season, there's still reason for optimism as the team returns home for the first time all year to host the Vikings in Week 3.(RotoWire, )
