Fantasy Land: Week 5 Remembered



    There might not be a more frustrating top wide receiver for fantasy owners than Marques Colston. He plays with Drew Brees and the Saints' high-octane passing attack, and he'll throw up some unbelievable stat lines from time to time. But he also has been known to disappear for stretches at a time.

    On Sunday night against the Chargers, Colston had one of those big games as he hauled in nine balls for 131 yards and three touchdowns from Brees. He was the top scoring player in standard leagues after being hit or miss for most of this season.

    Looking for heartbreak? Look no further than two quarterbacks, one who had an anomaly of a game and one who might be looking at a bad trend this year.

    Joe Flacco has finally begun to prove his claim that he's one of the league's elite quarterbacks, but on Sunday against a bad Kansas City team, Flacco fell flat, completing less than 50 percent of his passes for 187 yards and an interception.

    Cam Newton, who seems to be in quite a sophomore slump this year, went 12-of-29 for 141 yards with no TDs and had 42 rushing yards against an admittedly good defense in Seattle. It looks to be a trend this year.
