Fantasy Tip: Whatever caused Colston to leave the field seems minor at this point, but the situation is worth monitoring. Nagging injuries and New Orleans' spread-the-wealth offensive philosophy can cause Colston's production to fluctuate dramatically on a week-to-week basis, but he still makes a decent WR3 in PPR formats.

New Orleans Saints C Jonathan Goodwin worked with the first-team offense in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26, and has started the team's last two preseason games. Goodwin appears to be ahead of C Tim Lelito in the battle for the starting center job.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram appears to have earned first crack at being the team's early-down back, and if the Saints continue to let him play on some passing downs, it will help prevent defenses from focusing on stopping the run when he is in the game. He will likely never become a true lead back in New Orleans' spread-the-wealth offense, but Ingram has a chance to be a solid flex play this year.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston said he feels much healthier this season after being plagued by a foot injury the last year or two. The team has limited his workload this preseason to keep him fresh for the season.
Fantasy Tip: Colston is a solid WR4 with upside in PPR leagues.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (personal) missed practice Monday, Aug. 25, to be with his wife, who is expecting the couple's fourth child. The team did not comment on Brees' status for the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Brees isn't missing practice because of the oblique injury that bothered him earlier in the preseason. Meanwhile, he looked sharp in his only game action thus far, throwing for 128 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter of the team's third preseason contest.

New Orleans Saints CB Champ Bailey said he feels good after dealing with a minor foot injury, and feels like he has to prove what he can do. "Yeah, I do have to prove what I can do," Bailey said. "Even though I've played 15 years, it doesn't matter. Man, this is a production business. I think every guy going into training camp has to show what he can do. And, you know, I feel good. If they like what I do, then I'll play a lot on Sundays. Plain and simple."

Fantasy Tip: This is just a temporary setback for Cooks, and should not change his status on draft day. Look for Cooks to be drafted as a fourth or fifth wide receiver with upside.
