Marques Colston, WR, New Orleans Saints Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-4/225 Birthdate: 6/5/1983 School: Hofstra FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS Marques Colston is one of those players that I worry about each year thanks to injuries. Even though he statistically had one of his best years last year, 83 catches for 1154 yards and 10 touchdowns, he seemed to be lacking in burst and acceleration as the season wore on. In his seven years in the NFL, Colston has only finished a season while playing in all 16 games just three times, although he’s only played in less than 14 just once. I talked about my concern with injuries mounting for Andre Johnson and the same concerns ring true here. Luckily for Colston, his top threat for taking away targets is tight end Jimmy Graham. That really shouldn’t be an issue, Colston still is going to be the top wide receiver on the team. The problem, again, comes with the injury concerns. Do you really want a guy on your team that you are going to be worrying i...

Will Jimmy Graham return to form in 2013?

To many tight end’s and even receivers in the NFL, finishing with 85 catches, 982 yards and nine touchdowns would be a solid season. For New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, it wasn’t necessarily the stats, but the surprising amount of dropped balls that put up a red flag. His career-high 15 drops were on 100 targets of the dominant tight end.... Read more

Saints Nation: Saints Top 10 Worst Free Agent Pickups in Team History

If almost makes me sad that I can't add Tebucky Jones to this list (otherwise known as "TeSUCKY") because he was acquired by trade. I remember when the Saints landed him everyone acted like he would fix the defense and instead the Saints got the most inept and incapable football player I have ever seen. You think Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins look bad? Tebucky Jones...

Saints Nation Podcast: Loomis Salary Cap Magic and Free Agency Preview

Andrew, Kevin, and our fearless leader Dave are all together to discuss Mickey Loomis' magic to get the Saints under the salary cap. The downside as Dave explains is that the 2013 Saints defense will look a lot like the 2012 defense. Andrew makes the great point that the Saints moves so far this off season show they still believe in their defensive talent for next year. Kevin...

Saints Sign DE Junior Galette To Three-Year Contract

Saints Nation: Top 15 Free Agents in Saints History

I was glass half empty yesterday, so we'll go glass half full today. Here are my top 15 free agent signings in team history. There was just too many good ones to stop at 10. Free agency started technically in 1989 with "Plan B" but it wasn't till '92-'93 that the full blown free agency the way we know it today existed. That said, the Saints did sign some...
