Saints | Willie Snead checks out early

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.

Saints | Willie Snead targeted eight times

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 22:53:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted six receptions for a game-high 85 yards on eight targets in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Snead filled in admirably with Michael Thomas on the mend. If Thomas continues to miss time Snead could re-emerge as a useful WR3 in most fantasy leagues.

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.
