With all the hype surrounding the training camp rookie receiver Michael Thomas is having, it's puzzling that the New Orleans Saints 6-foot-6 second year receiver Brandon Coleman who's drawn comparisons to Saints all-time leading receiver Marques Colston hasn't been mentioned much.
However Saints head coach Sean Payton said Coleman has been solid through training camp.
"I'd say so far, I don't know that it's jumped out at us necessarily, but I don't know that there's been a bunch of minuses." he said describing Coleman's start to camp.
Payton called Coleman's performance consistent and cited last year's experience where the former Rutgers standout caught 30 passes for 454 yards and two touchdowns as a beneficial to him this season, the story said. Unfortunately for Coleman, we see him behind Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead and Thomas to start the season so he's only 91st on our WR list.
NO WR Marques Colston - Week 16, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs. Jacksonville
Marques Colston caught 2-of-4 targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Saints Week 15 loss to the Lions. He also had a touchdown called back on a penalty late in the first half. Colston is too inconsistent to be a reliable fantasy starter but he does have three touchdowns in his last two games. Ranked as our WR50 for Week 16, Colston will be a boom-or-bust WR4 this weekend.
