Saints | Willie Snead suspended three games

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 15:19:52 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead has been suspended three games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Tip: The suspension will hurt Snead's fantasy value but he will still be valuable when he returns in Week 4. Owners can still consider him a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues but will need a replacement for the first three weeks.

Saints | Willie Snead out of practice

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (undisclosed) is out of practice Friday, Aug. 4, for an unspecified reason.

Fantasy Tip: Mark Ingram and John Kuhn left after the walkthrough, likely as a day of rest, and the same could be true for Snead. Keep tabs on him through the weekend to be certain. Snead is in the low-end WR2, high-end WR3 range in fantasy.

Saints | Willie Snead wants to be deep threat

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 14:51:37 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead is focused on becoming more of a deep threat this season rather than his potential long-term contract. Snead has worked on his back-end speed this offseason and may have more opportunities down the field with New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks gone.

Fantasy Tip: Snead is seemingly underrated heading into a season in which he figures to have plenty of targets alongside Michael Thomas. If Snead can become a consistent downfield threat, he has low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 upside in an up-tempo offense.

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.
