2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Willie Snead wasn't heralded when he came into the league as a rookie in 2015 but he's received at least 100 targets in each of his first two seasons as a pro. He will be one of several players tasked with replacing the production of the departed Brandin Cooks and that should encourage fantasy owners to bump him up their cheatsheet a few notches. A mere ten percent increase in production would make him a valuable WR3 most weeks on his way to his first 1,000 yard season. His 69 percent catch rate makes him more even more attractive in PPR formats. Where the floor appears to be his biggest asset, his ceiling isn't nearly as high. There are plenty options near the goal in New Orleans so his lack of touchdowns will prevent him from cracking the top 25 receivers despite playing in a fantasy friendly offense.

Willie Snead to see role increase?
HC says team will rely on WR down the stretch
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 30, 4:35 pm

New Orleans
Sean Payton said Willie Snead is someone the Saints will rely on down the stretch. Hoped to get him more snaps yesterday. (New Orleans Times-Picayune)

FFToday's Take: Snead saw four snaps in Week 8 while fellow slot option Brandon Coleman managed 48, which makes Payton's comments sound somewhat disingenuous. As hard as it may be for the owners who have stashed him all season long, they may want to consider cutting the cord if they need the roster spot. With that said, there are very few receivers left on the wire that will have the kind of impact Snead could if Payton is being honest.


Injury Willie Snead a gametime decision
Hamstring injury

New Orleans
Wide receiver Willie Snead (hamstring) remains a game-time decision, per Rapoport. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Coming off his suspension, Snead was inactive last week. He mentioned earlier in the week that he might not be fully integrated into the offense when he does step on the field. He should be probably be avoided in lineups if he does suit up.


Injury Will Snead inactive
Saints WR will sit out Week 4

New Orleans
Saints WR Willie Snead is inactive today in London vs Dolphins. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Coming off suspension, the Saints will hold out Snead in Week 4 and the team has a bye in Week 5 meaning Snead won't see the field until Week 6. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr. and Brandon Coleman will be the top three receivers this week.


Willie Snead rejoins team, workload unknown
Returning after three-game suspension
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 27, 1:00 am

New Orleans
On conf call, Sean Payton said they’re going to see how Willie Snead handles this week of work. Then see how much they can use him Sunday (James Palmer via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: As the third receiver on the depth chart last season, Snead saw less than five targets in a game only twice. Ted Ginn, Jr. hasn't done anything extraordinary in Snead's absence (9 catches for 121 yards and a score over three games) so it shouldn't take long before Snead reclaims a quality role within the offense.
