New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston has struggled quite a bit during the first month of the season and seems to disappear at times. He had a late-game fumble against the Atlanta Falcons, was completely invisible against the Cleveland Browns and his play against the Dallas Cowboys was up and down.
Fantasy Tip: Colston is averaging just three receptions per game so far this year and was shut out in one game. He has 185 yards receiving and just one touchdown. With his erratic play and the struggles the New Orleans offense have currently, it might be a better option to look elsewhere in FantasyScore for the time being.

On paper, the New Orleans Saints running game looks good against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. The team had 13 carries for 104 yards. However, outside of RB Khiry Robinson's 62-yard run in the fourth quarter, the Saints rushed 12 times for just 42 yards.
Fantasy Tip: The return of RB Mark Ingram (hand) may help, but if the Saints' continue to fall behind on the scoreboard early and often the running game may not be given a chance to rebound.

The New Orleans Saints are 1-3 and their offensive issues are no longer a case of struggles happening just on the road. According to Larry Holder, the offensive woes are now an ineffectiveness thing and opponents no longer fear the New Orleans offense. The Saints have abandoned the deep ball and opponents are aware it can easily be shut down by dropping defenders in coverage. With continued defensive issues, the offense needs to be razor sharp in order for the team to have a chance each weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram wasn't expected to play with his broken hand. Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas will split time and both have favorable matchups against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram likely will not be able to play this week since he is recovering from his broken hand. Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson will continue to handle the work at running back while Ingram is out. Thomas costs $6,500 on FantasyScore this week, while Robinson costs $5,500. Both players could be flex options this week against the Dallas Cowboys.
