Saints | Willie Snead engages in razzle-dazzle

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:01:27 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to RB Tim Hightower in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Snead caught five passes for 38 yards, so if it hadn't been for that razzle-dazzle touchdown pass Snead would have had a bad day. Don't count on this play happening too much more, but Snead is ordinarily a decent threat for fantasy points. Snead is one of Drew Brees' many targets, so his numbers may go up and down.

Saints | Willie Snead excels at home

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 15:20:36 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead finished with five catches, 47 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 25-23 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It was a good day for Saints receivers, what with Brandin Cooks' touchdown and 98 yards receiving. Snead is a sleeper receiver in that he has a good game very often and is one of Drew Brees' secondary targets. Keep Snead in mind as one of your lesser receivers.

Saints | Six grabs for Willie Snead

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 17:53:36 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead hauled in six receptions for 56 yards on eight targets in the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Snead struggled with a toe injury from late September to mid-October, but it appears he is back to health. Over his past two games he has 15 receptions on 19 targets, totaling 143 yards. He remains a solid WR3 in most standard leagues, and a decent low-end WR2 in PPR formats.

Saints | Willie Snead hauls in nine balls

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 20:34:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead racked up nine receptions for 87 yards on 11 targets in the Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Snead bounced back after a couple of subpar outings, and he might finally be back to 100 percent after battling a toe injury for the past few weeks. He has low-end WR2 ability when the matchup is favorable, but he faces a tough matchup when the Seattle Seahawks visit in Week 8. Treat him as more of a low-end WR3 for that one.

Saints | Willie Snead very average again

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 17:22:06 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead managed four receptions for 47 yards in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Snead got off to a hot start and appeared to be No. 2 in the pecking order before suffering a toe injury which sent him to the inactive list. Since the injury, he has been bypassed by rookie Michael Thomas for the No. 2 job. While Snead is still worth keeping on a fantasy roster, he is more of a low-end WR3 in most formats.

Saints | Willie Snead ready to play

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 12:47:40 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is officially active for the team's Week 4 game.

Fantasy Tip: Snead should receive his normal workload and will see a good amount of targets during the game. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Saints | Willie Snead likely to play

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 06:40:40 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the San Diego Chargers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: As an integral part of the New Orleans passing game, Snead should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 this week, although he is facing a decent San Diego secondary and it is uncertain if he will see a limited number of snaps.

Saints | Willie Snead questionable

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:11:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Snead will be able to play. He should be a solid No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners if he plays, but owners will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.

Saints | Willie Snead still limited

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 14:49:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited in practice again Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Snead has had plenty of time to rest after missing Week 3, so keep an eye on if he's upgraded or not in the next few days. If he does play, he's an automatic start in the Saints' pass-happy offense. That being said, Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward are two of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, and Snead may be limited, so expectations should be mildly tempered.

Saints | Willie Snead limited Wednesday

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:33:15 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Snead was not able to play in the last game because of the injury, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Snead is a main part of the passing game when he is healthy and can be a starting option for owners if he is active for the game.

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:27:22 -0700

Saints | Willie Snead inactive

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:18:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Thomas should receive more playing time with Snead out. Coby Fleener likely will also see more targets in the passing game. Thomas should be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in deeper leagues, while Fleener can be a starting tight end for fantasy owners.

Saints | Willie Snead ruled out for Week 3

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:13:27 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) will not play Monday, Sept. 26, against the Atlanta Falcons after missing most of the team's practices leading up to the Week 3 finale with a toe injury.

Fantasy Tip: Snead missed practice on Thursday and Friday before getting a limited session in on Saturday, so this news isn't entirely unexpected. Rookie Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener should be more involved than usual in a plus-matchup, while Travaris Cadet and Mark Ingram could see a bit more work in the passing game as well.

Saints | Willie Snead questionable for Week 3

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 13:27:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Snead will be a risky option for owners this week since he will be a game-time decision and plays on Monday Night Football. Owners may want to consider other options because there will not be many other options available Monday, Sept. 26, if he is ruled out.

Saints | Willie Snead a game-time decision

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:26:26 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) said he will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 3 game. He hopes to play but indicated that head coach Sean Payton will decide on his status.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Snead will be able to play. He has started the season strong but will be a risky option in fantasy leagues since he plays on Monday Night Football. Owners may want to use other options in their lineups instead of hoping that Snead plays.

Saints | Another missed practice for Willie Snead

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:09:33 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was absent from practice for the second straight day on Friday, Sept. 23, possibly creating some doubt for his Week 3 availability versus the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Tip: Because Friday is considered the most important practice day for games played on the following Monday, Snead's status is becoming a concern. The WR3 in overall PPR scoring through two weeks has obviously benefited from Coby Fleener's slow start, but a toe injury - specifically a turf toe - could bring that to a halt very quickly. Beat writers don't appear to be worried yet, but owners would be wise to start considering their options in case he shows up as a DNP again on Saturday.

Saints | Willie Snead sidelined

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 15:37:16 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Thursday was the Saints' first practice of the week because they play on Monday night. Snead will have more time to nurse and heal the toe injury, but keep an eye on his progress or lack thereof in the coming days. He has a nice matchup against the Atlanta Falcons and is a must-start if he plays following one of the hottest starts in football.

Saints | Willie Snead posts giant stat line

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 18:38:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted nine receptions for a career-high 172 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Snead took advantage of a very giving Raiders pass defense in a shootout. He is worth a look as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues, as he caught the eye of Drew Brees much more than newcomers Coby Fleener and Michael Thomas. He'll face another fairly favorable matchup at N.Y. Giants in Week 2.

Saints | Brandon Coleman busy in loss

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 22:20:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman posted six receptions for 47 yards on 10 targets in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Houston Texans. He saw increased work with WRs Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead resting.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman looked good last preseason, but he never did quite emerge as that special fantasy sleeper everyone envisioned. Now, Brandin Cooks is the top banana and a WR1 for fantasy owners, and Willie Snead and rookie Michael Thomas look to be special. It appears Coleman will be the No. 4 wideout in NOLA, and more of a WR5 for fantasy players in most formats.

Saints | Cooks, Snead sitting vs. Texans

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 16:48:23 -0700

New Orleans WR Brandin Cooks and WR Willie Snead will not play in the team's exhibition game against the Houston Texans on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player is known to be dealing with an injury, so the Saints' decision to sit both starters is likely just a way to give rookie Michael Thomas and others behind him on the depth chart plenty of snaps to show their wares. Look for Cooks and Snead to play most of the first half when New Orleans hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers next Friday.

Saints | Willie Snead high on totem pole

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 20:06:43 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead had a big season in 2015, and the big question heading into 2016 is whether he loses snaps in two-receiver sets to WR Michael Thomas or another player. Beat writer Nick Underhill feels if Snead gets the same opportunities as last season he could have an even better season.

Fantasy Tip: Snead was just shy of 1,000 yards last season, and was a legitimate WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in most formats down the stretch.

Saints | Drew Brees confident in young receivers

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 09:19:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has confidence in his young corps of wide receivers led by WR Brandin Cooks and WR Willie Snead.

"I think when Drew is out there, he doesn't look at Brandin Cooks as a young player," head coach Sean Payton said. "I don't think he looks at Snead that way anymore because of the experience they've had. There's a combination there of guys that know what to do and how do they fit with the scheme that we're asking of them."

Fantasy Tip: Brees is 37, but he led the league in passing yards last season and completed 68.3% of his passes. The 32 touchdowns limited his output some, but that could increase as the experience with this group increases. Cooks has the ability of a WR1 in fantasy, but he's probably better served as a WR2. Snead amassed 984 yards and three scores last year and is a serviceable WR3. Brandon Coleman is a breakout candidate as a WR4. As for Brees, he's just below the elite tier of fantasy QBs, but he should be one of the first options after the top three are gone.

Saints | Big step coming for Willie Snead?

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:22:30 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead could take a big step forward this season with his experience and comfort level in the offense, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton said Snead has great attention to detail, he trains well, he's smart and he has a good knack for finding holes in zone coverage.

Fantasy Tip: Snead really stepped up last year and barely missed 1,000 yards. If he can maintain his status as the Saints' No. 2 wide receiver and improve on last year's numbers, then he can achieve WR3 status in 2016.

Saints | Willie Snead misses 1,000 yards

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:42:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead just missed the 1,000-yard mark Sunday, Jan. 3, in a 20-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Snead needed 51 yards to make the mark, but he finished with three catches and 35 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was a very nice season for Snead, who should be among the top receivers on the Saints roster in 2016. Because he hasn't compiled several seasons of this, Snead will likely be a middle-round candidate for drafting.

Saints | Ten grabs for Willie Snead

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 22:52:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted 10 receptions for 76 yards in the Week 15 game against the Detroit Lions. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Snead has 17 receptions for 198 yards over the past two games, and he has four or more receptions in three straight and 10 of the past 12 games. He is a solid low-end WR2 or flex FantasyScore option moving forward.

Saints | Willie Snead burns Buccaneers

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 17:05:50 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead had seven catches for 122 yards in a 24-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: After a couple of poor outings, Snead righted the ship with his second 100-yard game of the year. He has carved out a solid role in the Saints' passing attack, and he is worth a look at FantasyScore against favorable matchups.

Saints | Willie Snead, Marques Colston probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 14:47:13 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Willie Snead (calf) and Marques Colston (non-injury) are both listed as probable against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14. Snead was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 11, while Colston was a full participant.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints should have to throw often in what's expected to be a high-scoring affair. Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) missed last week and had cooled off before that, but he's still more attractive as a sleeper pick than Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap), who hasn't had more than three catches in a game since Nov. 1.

Saints | Willie Snead feeling better

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 16:04:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) is feeling good after returning to the practice field this week after he sat out in Week 13. "Coach thought it would be good to take a week. I benefitted from that. I feel good right now," Snead said. WR Brandon Coleman had four catches for 73 yards and aa touchdown in Snead's place last weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Brandin Cooks suffered a concussion in practice Thursday and is now doubtful against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That puts Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), Coleman ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Marques Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in prime sleeper territory. Snead is your most attractive as a value pick, but Coleman and Colston could also return huge profit.

Saints | Willie Snead limited Thursday

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:47:19 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) missed last week's game with the calf injury, but what's encouraging is that he's at least practicing. Still, you should keep track of his status over the next few days to see if there's an upgrade. If he plays, he's worth at least a flex start on FantasyScore, especially with Brandin Cooks possibly sidelined.

Saints | Limited practice for Willie Snead

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 15:37:54 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) missed last week's game while dealing with the calf injury. The encouraging thing is that he at least practiced, but really keep track of his status over the next few days to see if there's an upgrade. If he plays, he's worth at least a flex start against an average Tampa Bay pass defense.

Saints | Willie Snead will not play

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 12:29:34 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) has been declared inactive for the Week 13 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Bradin Cooks ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and Marques Colston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should receive a majority of the targets during the game but will be facing a solid Panthers defense. Cooks should still be a starting option, but owners can pass on Colston.

Saints | Willie Snead doubtful to play

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 14:54:19 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) did not practice Friday, Dec. 4, and is doubtful to suit up against the Carolina Panthers in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are all-around a nasty defense and will give the Saints fits in the passing game. Brandin Cooks ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and Marques Colston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will see more targets likely, but both are tough calls to start on FantasyScore in this matchup.

Saints | Willie Snead has new injury

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 15:45:23 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) has previously missed practices with a knee injury but has yet to miss a game this year. However, his calf injury is new this week.

Fantasy Tip: There is plenty of reason to be skeptical about using Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) on FantasyScore. For one, he might not even be able to play and could be a game-time decision in a late game. On top of that, the Carolina Panthers are a terrible matchup for receivers.

Saints | Willie Snead sits Thursday

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 11:48:29 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) was out of practice Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a tough matchup against the Carolina Panthers if he suits up, and he's not the best flyer on FantasyScore this week.

Saints | Two Saints WRs miss practice

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 16:48:23 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Marques Colston (non-injury) and Willie Snead (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Colston ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Snead ($3,400, 6.8%), the Carolina Panthers have been one of the better fantasy defenses against wide receivers this year. Snead has more upside than Colston, but neither of these guys should be at the top of your FantasyScore priority list.

Saints | Willie Snead should play

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 13:39:32 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as probable for the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should have a decent role in the passing game against the Texans this week. He was shut out in the last game but posted 165 yards and two touchdowns in the previous two games. Snead will be facing a tough Texans defense but could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 16:05:57 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a decent matchup against the Houston Texans this week, and his still at a relatively cheap price on FantasyScore, so don't overlook him this weekend.

Saints | Willie Snead a full participant

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 14:22:38 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: The Houston Texans have been better than average against wide receiver this year, so expectations should be tempered somewhat for Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap). He's still worth a start on FantasyScore, especially at a relatively cheap price.

Saints | Willie Snead, Marques Colston good to go

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 15:55:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Willie Snead (knee) and Marques Colston (non-injury) are listed as probable for Week 10 against the Washington Redskins. Snead was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 13, while Colston was a full participant.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is the much better value play on FantasyScore in a PPR format; he has at least seven targets in the last three weeks and has back-to-back weeks of six catches. Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a sleeper play in a flex spot against a Washington secondary that can be exploited by Drew Brees.

Saints | Willie Snead doesn't practice

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:35:35 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: This is disconcerting since Snead ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) had a limited practice yesterday. He will need to be monitored before Sunday's game, but it's never a good sign to be downgraded before the weekend. If Snead sits this weekend, Colston ($3,300, 6.6%) would ideally see more targets and could make for a nice sleeper on FantasyScore.

Saints | Willie Snead limited Wednesday

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 16:29:47 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) was limited in practice last week as well but still played against the Buccaneers. As for his matchup this week, the Washington Redskins have been quite accommodating to wide receivers this year, so Snead should be in the mix for FantasyScore lineups if he plays.

Saints | Willie Snead expected to play

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 15:25:45 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 6, and is listed as probable for the Week 9 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is coming off a two-touchdown performance and has caught at least five passes in four of his last six games. Snead could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Saints | Willie Snead still limited

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 16:44:59 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) should be monitored going into the weekend, but the silver lining here is that he has practiced two days in a row. He's still relatively cheap on FantasyScore, so don't completely ignore him because of the knee issue.

Saints | Two NO WRs don't practice

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 15:30:20 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Willie Snead (knee) and Marques Colston (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Colston ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) was probably just given the day off, and the extent of Snead's knee injury was not clear. Snead ($4,400, 8.8%), specifically, should be tracked as the week continues. Saints' receivers do face a tough test in the Tennessee Titans, who have only yielded 1,017 yards to the position through seven games -- ranking sixth in the league.

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead carried seven times for 76 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 8 game against the New York Giants. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has emerged as a strong low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 in FantasyScore, but be careful with a difficult matchup in Week 9 against a tough Tennessee Titans pass defense.

Saints | Willie Snead breaks out

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead had six catches for a team-high 141 yards in a 39-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Snead ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has seen his role grow all year, and he followed an 89-yard performance with an even bigger effort in Week 5. He is worth adding in seasonal leagues if he is available, and he could make a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore.
