Marques Colston, WR, New Orleans Saints
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...
BEST OF MAXIM
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
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...
Linebacker Junior Galette has agreed to a three-year contract to remain with the New Orleans Saints.
Galette reached terms with the team on Saturday. He had been set to become a restricted free agent next week.
Galette was originally signed by New Orleans as an undrafted free agent out of Stillman College in 2010.
Galette has appeared in 32 games with two starts for the Saints...
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...
The New Orleans Saints have announced that they’ve reached an agreement with DE Junior Galette on a three-year deal.
The Saints reportedly tendered Galette before reaching an agreement.
Galette, 24, figures to play outside linebacker in the Saints’ new 3-4 defensive scheme. Last year, he tallied 22 tackles, a career-high five sacks, and one forced fumble.
The post Saints...
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...
