2015 Outlook: Over the Hill (decreased production)Last updated on Jun-29-2015 by Shawn Childs
Over the past two years, Colston has seen his numbers decrease. In his first seven seasons, Marques had six 1,000-yard campaigns and six 70-catch years. He's scored 68 TDs in 133 career games. His inability to create separation is easily shown by his 59 percent catch rate in 2014, down six percentage points from his career average. In fairness, the Saints did allow him to roam more downfield, and Colston averaged 15.3 yards per catch, his most since 2009. He also stayed on the field for 16 games and led the wide receiving corps with 889 snaps. It's highly unlikely he'll see that much field time again. At age 32, a Fantasy owner has to have doubts regarding whether Marques can regain his elite form for just one more year. The void created by the loss of Graham should reward him the most among all of New Orleans' WRs, but there are enough signs that a big rebound year may just not be in the cards. Marques didn't record more than 82 yards in any of the final 10 games in 2014, and he didn't catch more than six passes in any contest. The balls will be flying at a high rate in this offense, so he shouldn't be dismissed. His price point is more than fair (ADP of 121, 49th WR selected). Let's shoot for 70 catches, 1000-plus yards and 6-8 TDs, but any injury news this summer would put him on my 'avoid' list.

|5.04||Fantasy Taz - Colston battled foot injuries most of the season and still had 75 recs, 5 TDs and almost 1,000 yards. He finished the year strongly and I think he has another strong year.|
