    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead hauled in six receptions for 56 yards on eight targets in the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Snead struggled with a toe injury from late September to mid-October, but it appears he is back to health. Over his past two games he has 15 receptions on 19 targets, totaling 143 yards. He remains a solid WR3 in most standard leagues, and a decent low-end WR2 in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 8:34pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead racked up nine receptions for 87 yards on 11 targets in the Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Snead bounced back after a couple of subpar outings, and he might finally be back to 100 percent after battling a toe injury for the past few weeks. He has low-end WR2 ability when the matchup is favorable, but he faces a tough matchup when the Seattle Seahawks visit in Week 8. Treat him as more of a low-end WR3 for that one.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 5:22pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead managed four receptions for 47 yards in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Snead got off to a hot start and appeared to be No. 2 in the pecking order before suffering a toe injury which sent him to the inactive list. Since the injury, he has been bypassed by rookie Michael Thomas for the No. 2 job. While Snead is still worth keeping on a fantasy roster, he is more of a low-end WR3 in most formats.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 12:47pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is officially active for the team's Week 4 game.

    Huddle Up: Snead should receive his normal workload and will see a good amount of targets during the game. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 6:40am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the San Diego Chargers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: As an integral part of the New Orleans passing game, Snead should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 this week, although he is facing a decent San Diego secondary and it is uncertain if he will see a limited number of snaps.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 1:11pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Snead will be able to play. He should be a solid No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners if he plays, but owners will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 2:49pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited in practice again Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Snead has had plenty of time to rest after missing Week 3, so keep an eye on if he's upgraded or not in the next few days. If he does play, he's an automatic start in the Saints' pass-happy offense. That being said, Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward are two of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, and Snead may be limited, so expectations should be mildly tempered.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 3:33pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Snead was not able to play in the last game because of the injury, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Snead is a main part of the passing game when he is healthy and can be a starting option for owners if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 4:18pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Michael Thomas should receive more playing time with Snead out. Coby Fleener likely will also see more targets in the passing game. Thomas should be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in deeper leagues, while Fleener can be a starting tight end for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 9:13am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) will not play Monday, Sept. 26, against the Atlanta Falcons after missing most of the team's practices leading up to the Week 3 finale with a toe injury.

    Huddle Up: Snead missed practice on Thursday and Friday before getting a limited session in on Saturday, so this news isn't entirely unexpected. Rookie Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener should be more involved than usual in a plus-matchup, while Travaris Cadet and Mark Ingram could see a bit more work in the passing game as well.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 1:27pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 12:26pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 2:09pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 3:37pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 5/31/2016 10:21am ET

    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.
