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.

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.

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.

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is off to a disappointing start in his new home and still building a rapport with QB Drew Brees. However, Brees believes as the two players begin to get more comfortable with each other and the team learns what Fleener does best versus man and zone coverage, the results will come. "We're able to get more specific every day. That's the thing during the offseason; everything is kind of general. It's the general form of the offense and concepts and that kind of thing. It's not until you get down to real game-planning that you get down to some of the nitty gritty and specific," Brees said.
Fantasy Tip: Fleener has three catches (for 35 yards) on 12 targets thus far, which speaks to his lack of comfort in the offense. With that said, he represents a solid buy-low. It should be noted that Ben Watson had five catches for 31 yards at this point last season on nine targets before finishing the year with 74 catches for 825 yards. Fleener will have another soft matchup in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, who have yielded 15 catches for 138 yards and three touchdowns on 16 targets to tight ends thus far.

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.

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener caught two passes for 29 yards on eight targets in Week 2, giving him three catches for 35 yards through two games. He blamed himself in post-game comments, saying he made "three or four" mistakes and singling out a dropped pass on the team's opening drive.
Fantasy Tip: Clearly this isn't the start anyone envisioned when Fleener signed a $36 million deal in free agency, but that investment tells you they're going to give him every chance to work through these issues. Still, in the short run, Fleener is probably better left on your bench until he shows more chemistry with Drew Brees
