Saints release WR Marques Colston

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston has been released.

Colston missed three games for the first time since the 2008 season, and caught his lowest number of passes in his career, finishing out his last year with 45 receptions for 520 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: 

Brandon Coleman who is a big guy out of Rutgers that has done some good things and I think in many ways is the heir apparent to Marques,” said GM Mickey Loomis, earlier in February. Coleman should absorb a good portion of Colston's targets if the Saints don't make a move at the position. Brandin Cooks (8.1 targets per game) and Willie Snead (6.7) will likely see the bulk of the targets at receiver. Snead is shaping up as a particularly nice sleeper in 8th-10th range in early PPR drafts.
