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 | 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.
