Colston to miss a month (1 Viewer)

So in leagues where there's no TE and play a WR/TE instead, how would you all rank Shockey, Patten, Henderson and Meacham? In both PPR and non-PPR leagues.

Just IR'd Colston and grabbed Henderson (Patten was already rostered). Didn't Colston miss time last year? What did Henderson's stats look like then?

And is Meachem totally worthless or what?

 
Honestly as a Colston owner theres been worse injuries. At least when he comes back he should be fine to play again. Unfortunately Saints have a bye in week 9.

 
Turn out the lights, the party's over!

Money League:

1.04 Brady

2.09 Colston

Subscription Contest:

WR2 Colston

Good luck to both players getting well.

Here, I'll give it to myself:

:wub:

 
Not the greatest source, but team ownership on CBS has ...

Meachem, Robert WR NO 32

Patten, David WR NO 14

Henderson, Devery WR NO 9

but in "views today" you can flip those

Homer here.Brees has always distributed the ball well. I would say immediate bump for Shockey and Patten. Henderson's value is the big play, so I don't see this effecting his value at all. Patten will be the WR that steps up....sure Meacham's play will probably increase, but if you're b/w the two, I'd grab Patten.Also bump Bush in PPR (as if he wasn't high already).
This is correct.As far as use in the offense...Meachum = HendersonColston = PattenShockey gets the biggest bump.

From the FBG Depth Chart:

WR: Marques Colston, David Patten, Devery Henderson, Lance Moore (PR), Robert Meacham, Terrance Copper, Adrian Arrington (IR)

Very little mention of Lance More here so far... IMO he is the shark move assuming in most leagues Patten won't be available.

Meachem will be the sexy pick, but just keep in mind he was a HEALTHY scratch in week 1 and Moore got 4 targets with Colston on the field. Patten and Henderson had 2 each. Seems pretty clear to me.

According to Pro Football Reference, Colston didn't play in week 10 vs the Bengals in 2006, and Henderson had 9 grabs for 169 yards.In 2007, it looks like Colston was in every game. I'm going to go ahead and assume that one Henderson start 2 seasons ago will be repeated weekly.
 
Wow, just wow.

I was very close draft him, but all my 3 money league, he either went 1 or 2 pick ahead of me.

 
Unfortunately, none of the remaining WRs are obviously in Colston's class.

As noted above, Brees does a good job spreading the ball around, and while any one of them could benefit in any given week, good luck guessing who it is.

Shockey and Bush seem to be the only ones that stand to consistently gain.

good call, as he will likely be available in all leagues.
 
ESPN just reported 4-6 weeks.

ETA: I picked up Patten(dropped Mark Clayton) 30 seconds after someone in my league got Henderson. I was going for Patten anyway, PPR league. Just a heads up that the Shark move differs, I guess.

Another big name injury. Colston was a guy the Saints were obviously counting

heavily on. New Orleans will turn to David Patten and Devery Henderson to pick

up the slack. And if Robert Meacham is going to be anything like the player they

drafted him to be, now is the time for him to show it. Meacham was inactive (again)

for last week's game but coach Sean Payton had seemed encouraged by Meacham's

progress. New TE Jeremy Shockey will also likely be leaned on a little more.

Bottom line is this is a blow for Drew Brees. If you're a Colston owner, be moving

to plan B and grab a replacement. And look for guys like Patten, Henderson, Meacham

and Shockey to move up a little as they try to fill the void.

Interesting NO mention of Moore here either. What am I missing on this guy? :wub:

 
Meachem is only a beneficiary insofar as he should be active with Colston out. What he'll actually do is anyone's guess. I find it very, very improbable that he will slide directly into the starting lineup.

I've pimped Patten before, and I'll do it again here...he's clearly the beneficiary of this situation, along with Jeremy Shockey and Lance Moore to a lesser degree. Patten has great hands, isn't afraid to go over the middle, and probably has more big play ability than Colston does (note his long touchdown last week). Henderson will probably see a slightly bigger role, but he has shown repeatedly that he cannot be counted on to make the tough catches over the middle that Colston is known for. He won't suddenly become a tough possession receiver now, and I would advise against picking him up as anything more than a WR4/5 that you can accept a goose egg from when he doesn't score a long touchdown.

I'd look for Shockey to actually line up in the slot quite a bit, because he's probably most capable of replicating some of the things Marques Colston is called upon to do.

This is unbelieveable

First Brady done, then Barber with his Ribs, now Colston

Who it the guy to pickup ?
:wall: :wall: :wall: Great, in one league, I have now lost Brady, Burelson, Merriman (SD team Defense) and Colston. WTF? I guess I am in for a long season. Damnit, on paper pre-week 1, my team looked like the best team and now I am scrambling to replace 3 starters out of 7.

Just hope none of your players are on my team.
:thumbup:
Damn your quick and my god do you post a lot.
hes always had my vote as biggest FBG loser. you'll always see him come into a thread and make some standard FBG joke, his attempts at being funny are pathetic.
 
the other side of this story, imo, is what this could do to pierre thomas' production.

the best receiver on the team now is reggie bush, so i'd think the saints will be looking to throw it to him even more than they already do, which would lead to a higher percentage of the team's running plays going to thomas (or mcallister if/when he's ready to contribute).

also, i doubt it will be a significant change, but it seems like they'd have to run the ball a little more, so that helps thomas too.

obviously, the value of bush, shockey, patten, henderson, moore, and meachem (the latter 3 being unpredictable and inconsistent) all go up, but i see pierre thomas' value going up too.

Fool me once, fool me 100 times on Henderson. He has one good game, I pick him up, he disappears. Rinse and repeat.No thanks.
Was Colston out of the lineup when Henderson fooled you before?
Last time Colston was out (four weeks in 06) Henderson put up:9/1694/158/12/142/92/1
:confused:
;) :goodposting: Those are some encouraging stats. Hopefully I won't ever have to play Henderson as I have some decent WR depth, but just nice to know he produced those numbers in the past sans Colston.
 
Wow, first Burleson, now Colston. My WR core is hurtin'.

I have Branch stashed away and actually both Patten and Henderson are available in my league. I'd go for Patten since we get PPR, and while Henderson is the big-play threat, he's just too damn inconsistent for my taste.

OK, I just saw the stats posted for Henderson during Colston's last time out with injury. Who was starting opposite Henderson then? Thanks for the info, and for confusing me even more :confused:

PPR - I'd put Shockey and Patten bout even here, with Henderson as a fill in for deep leagues, and Meacham no more than a flier in VERY deep leagues.Non-PPR - Shockey, then Patten, and I wouldn't bother with the other 2. In Non-PPR leagues, I think I'd see Pierre Thomas as the best beneficiary here, but that won't help your WR/TE corp.
 
You may also see a lot more of Billy Miller who can split out wide and has always been productive when he's played.

ETA: Colston did play in that fourth game. It was Joe Horn who Henderson filled in for that week.

Anyone really think this could impact pierre thomas? curious to hear peoples thoughts on:

devry henderson

meachem

p. thomas

curious about the shark move mentioning pierre thomas - had my eye on him sitting on waivers along with the other two mentioned

 
In Sunday's "WTF Colston" thread, I wrote:

It's my fault, fellow Colston owners. Despite my history of crap luck with New Orleans Saints players, I drafted him anyway with my second pick overall because of his proven success, his QB, and the offensive weaponry around him. My greatest fear is that Marques Colston busts like Joe Horn did in 2005.And where the hell was Santonio Holmes?!!? Bad enough that I had to suffer through my team getting buttraped at Heinz Field, but my afternoon was further ruined by Holmes getting no love from bosom buddy Ben.
I can't believe it's happened again. Well, yes I can.
 
Lance Moore was listed as the starter opposite Colston on the depth chart and something we discussed here last week. I only noticed Thom Yorke mentioning him. Odd

Completely agree, though I really had to pick him up anyhow. He screwed me repeatedly when he was supposed to be the #2 guy in NO. I'm gonna try to move him in a package with Felix Jones to the Barber owner.
 
I think it is worth noting that when Henderson had those nice games filling in when Colston was out, that was in 2006...Patten was not on the team that year so I don't know that it is safe to assume that Henderson will again be the guy to "replace" Colston in his absence.

The depth chart on the team's official site had Henderson as the #2, and almost every time the Saints lined up in a 2 WR set Sunday he was out there. Moore rarely saw the field.

Maybe the shark move is to prey on a Colston owner and trade FOR him. If you have some good WR depth, and had a solid draft (and didn't have Brady), a desperate owner may bite on, say a pre-season 12-20 WR like Boldin or Cotchery.

Thoughts?

I am trying to do just that. Offered Evans + Freeney for Colston.

After looking at last week's game and knowing how important a WR's thumbs are I'm not giving up that much for when he returns.Brees sprea the ball around well. Shockey to me looked like he was getting a lot of targets Colston would have picked up the previous two years.

Theres no reason to believe his thumb wont be fully healed after 4-6 weeks. This isnt a knee injury or hamstring injury we're talking about. I have full faith he will be good as new in 4-6 weeks. This may be a blessing in disguise if Colston owners like myself could tread water cuz he cant get hurt worse in that time. Leg injuries are ten times more worrisome.
