KFFL: Coltson To Score Between 8 and 10 TD’s in 2010

KFFL.com, a premiere fantasy site, says that Saints WR Marques Colston should catch about 8 to 10 TD’s in 2010, but due to the teams weapons, you won’t see a huge explosion like you may if he was elsewhere:

Pros: In three of his four pro seasons, the former seventh-round pick has gone over the 1,000-yard mark. Colston is the top target in the Drew Brees-led Saints’ passing game. He is under contract through the 2011 season but is looking for that big payday. In eight games in ’09, Colston hauled in at least five receptions. Seven of his nine touchdowns came in separate games. The possession receiver rebounded nicely from microfracture knee surgery in the 2009 offseason.

Cons: Since New Orleans has so many capable weapons, Colston isn’t likely to see an explosion in numbers. He was targeted only 108 times a year ago. Colston battled injury in 2008, costing him five games. He caught no more than four passes in eight games (one was Week 17, in fairness).

Fantasy tip: Colston is an unexciting pick. His value increases in point-per-reception leagues, but he’s still just one of many capable targets for Brees in a crowded passing game. He doesn’t have a lot of upside, but he’s pretty safe. Colston is the 11th receiver being drafted, on average, in the middle of the third round.
