    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: 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.

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) said he will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 3 game. He hopes to play but indicated that head coach Sean Payton will decide on his status.

    Huddle Up: 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.

    Huddle Up: 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 WR Willie Snead (toe) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 6:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted nine receptions for a career-high 172 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Snead took advantage of a very giving Raiders pass defense in a shootout. He is worth a look as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues, as he caught the eye of Drew Brees much more than newcomers Coby Fleener and Michael Thomas. He'll face another fairly favorable matchup at N.Y. Giants in Week 2.

  • Posted: 8/20/2016 4:48pm ET

    New Orleans WR Brandin Cooks and WR Willie Snead will not play in the team's exhibition game against the Houston Texans on Saturday, Aug. 20.

    Huddle Up: Neither player is known to be dealing with an injury, so the Saints' decision to sit both starters is likely just a way to give rookie Michael Thomas and others behind him on the depth chart plenty of snaps to show their wares. Look for Cooks and Snead to play most of the first half when New Orleans hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers next Friday.

    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.

    Huddle Up: Snead showed flashes last season, and his ceiling is limited by a Saints offense that doesn't throw quite as much as it used to. That said, Drew Brees spreads the ball around and can easily support multiple fantasy-worthy receivers in his offense, and with Marques Colston gone there is room for growth in Snead's numbers.

  • Posted: 12/13/2015 9:15pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Snead was Drew Brees' receiver of choice this week and he rewarded owners who started him with a big game. Snead will once again be on the WR3/Flex radar next week for the second round of fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/10/2015 7:28pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Snead's possible return suddenly has taken on more importance with Thursday's news that New Orleans' leading receiver, Brandin Cooks, is dealing with a concussion. We'll see what the outlook is regarding both wideouts Friday.

  • Posted: 12/4/2015 6:27pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) did not practice Friday, Dec. 4, and is doubtful to suit up against the Carolina Panthers in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Snead, the Saints' second-leading receiver with 676 yards, likely will miss his first game of the season, meaning more targets for his fellow wideouts, primarily Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston.

  • Posted: 12/3/2015 3:54pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (calf) was out of practice Thursday, Dec. 3.

    Huddle Up: Snead has now missed both of the Saints' practices this week, and if he still can't get on the field Friday, then it'll be time to get another WR option lined up.

  • Posted: 11/13/2015 12:09am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

    Huddle Up: It's not good to see a player trend in the wrong direction as Snead went from limited participation Wednesday to out Thursday. If the wideout can't reverse course Friday, his availability for Sunday's game in Washington will very much be in doubt.

  • Posted: 11/11/2015 8:06pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

    Huddle Up: Snead is expected to play this week. He'll be a low-end WR2 against a shaky Redskins' pass defense.

  • Posted: 10/11/2015 9:50pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead had six catches for a team-high 141 yards in a 39-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Snead has actually been the Saints best receiver over the past couple of weeks, so his big game doesn't come as a huge surprise. If Snead is still available in your league, he should be a top waiver wire priority this week.

  • Posted: 10/5/2015 9:01am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted six receptions for 89 yards in the Week 4 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Snead is consistently showing up on the Saints' receiver leaderboard, getting into the end zone and this week pacing the team in catches. During the SNF broadcast it was mentioned that Brees views Snead as the team's second receiver alongside Brandin Cooks, so it looks as though his fantasy value is here to stay.
