Does anyone have a definitive report on Titus young? Colston should be the play, but I'd like to start broyles if Young is benched another week. Colts have bad defense and I see this going to a shootout if necessary.

Week Thirteen Analysis: The Saints have been playing with a much needed sense of urgency since dropping the first four games of the season and no player has benefitted from that more than Marques Colston. In the last eight games Colston is averaging six catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. He's scored in three of the last four games, including last week against the 49ers and two weeks ago against Atlanta, who they just happen to have on the schedule again. Atlanta has been very good against opposing wideouts this season, allowing only six scores to enemy receivers this year. However, they did allow two Tampa Bay receivers to top 75 yards just last week.

Broyles will be the number 2 guy this weekend, but he's had one really good game and hasn't scored since week 8.  Colston is pretty consistent to throw on the bench.

Thanks for the insight. Broyles has seen more productivity with the increased snap counts due to young's benching. He only did have one decent week, but with more snap counts, there's more potential. Megatron draws all the coverage. Bree's has so many options on his team and he loves to spread the ball around. Tough decision, either go with the consistent player or the dud/stud.

Broyles has taken over for Titus Young as the #2 WR. Young did some crazy garbage like try to sabotage the team by lining up in the wrong spot on purpose during a game or something. He's a headcase and no one seems to want him on the team anymore. I'm guessing they cut him in the offseason.

Broyles should be good the rest of the way. Last week was the first game he started...doesn't make a lot of sense to focus on before that. I'd role w/Broyles this week. In fact, I'm going to most likely over Blackmon.

That said, I agree Colston's probably still a safer bet...but wouldn't sleep on Broyles. He could be a top 10 WR the rest of the way with how Stafford's playing.
