What happened to Marques Colston?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:36 pm ET) Last week was the first time in 87 games that Marques Colston didn't have a catch. It had little to do with Browns cornerback Joe Haden. It had little to do with injury. It had little to do with his quarterback being constantly under pressure.

But it might have had to do with him not getting open, and it might have had to do with him not playing as much as you might expect -- just 41 of 70 snaps. And maybe a teeny-tiny bit of him fumbling the ball the last time he had his hands on it, a fumble in overtime of Week 1 that cost the Saints a chance at winning. 

Maybe there's a smidge of penance that was paid for his Week 1 boo-boo, but the more concerning issue to Fantasy owners was Colston looking slow, which has been the case for a while. That makes him easier to cover and if he's covered, Brees won't throw it to him. To be fair, Brees also has a new toy in the offense (Brandin Cooks) as well as one of the most dominating pass catchers in the league (Jimmy Graham). It goes without saying that they're going to take up a lot of Brees' attention. 

This will be a telling week for Colston as he'll play at home against the Vikings. The Saints should light up the scoreboard and if that's the case then Colston could be in for some nice numbers. If he can't do it this week, be it because of a lack of playing time or because he can't get free, then I might start to get nervous about having him as a part of my Fantasy roster.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:25 pm ET) Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams (thigh) and Mike Tolbert (chest) did not practice Wednesday as the team prepared for Sunday night's game against the Steelers.

(1:22 pm ET) Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, who was reinstated Wednesday after serving two games of his suspension, returned to practice. Prior to being suspended for four games right before the start of the season, Welker was recovering from a concussion he suffered in the preseason.

Ben Tate expected to sit out again Week 3
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:18 pm ET) Browns coach Mike Pettine told reporters Wednesday he doesn't expect running back Ben Tate (knee) to make his return Week 3 against the Ravens. Tate was sidelined Week 2 against the Saints.

Tony Romo gets the day off
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:17 pm ET) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did not practice Wednesday as the team continues to manage his comeback from back surgery, reports the Dallas Morning News. Dallas is preparing to visit the Rams on Sunday.
