News: Colston had five catches for 50 yards on 10 targets in Sunday's 38-17 loss to the Cowboys. Impact: Colston had a pair of bad drops, one of which was negated by a defensive penalty. While his 10 targets were second best on the team to TE Jimmy Graham's 11, Colston still has just 23 targets through four games, compared to 30 for Brandin Cooks. Colston hasn't looked good this year, and while he still has a significant role in the offense, he seems to be headed for a second straight season with fewer than 1,000 receiving yards. He has a 12-185-1 receiving line through four games, putting him on pace for just 48-740-4, as the Saints' offense has unexpectedly struggled through the first quarter of the season.(RotoWire, )

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, )
