Football Outsiders: Biggest Decliners in Top 200

WR: Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints (174)


Colston's medical history is a huge red flag. Never the quickest or most explosive wide receiver, if he continues to slow down in those departments, gaining separation could be a real issue. Also, it looks like the Saints will be a more balanced attack by featuring their run game more. Two declining wide receivers who might end up in the Hall of Fame someday are Reggie Wayne (76) and Hines Ward (197). I see both players' roles in their respective offenses diminishing going forward; Ward could even lose his starting job.

Is this a fantasy football article?

He's basing his opinion on potential injury and IF Colston slows down. Well shazam, if Larry Fitzgerald gets injured or slows down he'd probably decline too.



I've seen no evidence that justifies his decline.

i think it is the multiple times he has been injured that give him the drop. Plus the fact that his knees dont look good so far this season

I couldn't read what they said about Colston because I'm not a ESPN "insider." He looks pretty good to me but this may be the defining year of his career.

He's missed 1 game in 2 years. How is that multiple?

He's missed fewer games than Lance Moore, and its not even close.
