Saints | Willie Snead signs tender

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 14:30:23 -0700

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent WR Willie Snead signed his $615,000 tender Monday, July 24, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Snead is arguably one of the most underrated wide receivers in the NFL, especially so since Brandin Cooks is now in New England. Snead has more upside in PPR leagues and deserves low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 consideration in such formats.

Saints | Willie Snead won't hold out

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 10:45:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints exclusive rights free-agent WR Willie Snead said he'll report to camp Thursday, July 27, despite his desire for a new contract.

Fantasy Tip: Snead is on the cusp in fantasy, and with Brandin Cooks gone, this could be the year. He has a lot of upside as a WR3.

Saints | Willie Snead hopeful for deal before season

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 22:08:06 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead is optimistic that he'll have a long-term deal with the club before the new season begins. "I think the guys upstairs are working on it," Snead said. "I'm hopeful, and I just have to keep worrying about myself and staying healthy and doing all the right things. I know it's going to be handled, it's going to take time, but I feel like we'll get it done sooner or later."

Fantasy Tip: Just as the Saints would be wise to lock up Snead for the long term as soon as possible, fantasy owners might want to think about doing the same with the third-year wide-out for the upcoming campaign. Although he's only recorded seven touchdowns across 30 games in his two seasons, Snead has been a force, accumulating 141 catches for 1,879 yards over that span. With Brandin Cooks no longer in New Orleans, Snead could produce his best season yet.

Saints | Willie Snead still has not signed

Sun, 07 May 2017 16:40:45 -0700

New Orleans Saints exclusive rights free-agent WR Willie Snead still has not signed his tender offer but is not allowed to sign with another team.

Fantasy Tip: Snead likely is looking for a long-term with a bigger salary than the $615,000 he would make in 2017 if he signs his tender. Snead should have a bigger role in the passing game with Brandin Cooks no longer on the team. He recorded 895 yards and four touchdowns this past season and should be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Saints | Willie Snead present for OTAs

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 14:05:34 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead participated in organized team activities Monday, April 17, despite not yet signing his exclusive rights tender. Snead is not permitted to sign with any other team as the Saints did offer him the required one-year tender worth $615,000.

Fantasy Tip: Snead took somewhat of a backseat to Brandin Cooks and Michael Thomas last year, but he may be called on more in 2017 with Cooks gone. Snead has quietly produced just under 1,900 yards in his two season with the Saints. He's an under-the-radar flex consideration in standard leagues.

Saints | Willie Snead tendered

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 08:02:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent WR Willie Snead was tendered Tuesday, Feb. 7. Terms weren't disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Snead had a 72-895-4 season in 2016, and he has some upside with Brandin Cooks being bandied about on the trade market. Snead is a shaky WR3 target, and he's a better WR4 if possible.

Saints | Willie Snead to receive tender

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 15:20:35 -0800

New Orleans Saints exclusive rights free-agent WR Willie Snead will receive a tender offer this offseason, but his agent said he hopes to talk with the team about a bigger salary in 2017 or a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Snead is coming off a solid season where he recorded 895 yards and four touchdowns. He could have a bigger role in the passing game if the Saints decide to trade Brandin Cooks this offseason. Owners in most fantasy leagues could consider Snead as a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver next season.

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 22:30:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (concussion) left the Week 17 game against the Atlanta Falcons due to a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Snead wrapped up the season with 72 catches, 895 yards and four scores. He was the tertiary receiving option behind Michael Thomas and Drew Brees, but he still was a solid WR4 in most fantasy leagues. That role will continue into 2017.

Saints | Willie Snead posts low numbers in Week 16

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 15:32:19 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead caught two passes for 21 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Snead has received a lot of targets this season but has been held to under 40 yards in four of his last six games. Snead can still be considered a flex option since he is part of one of the better passing offenses in the NFL, but owners could also bench him if they have better options.
