Saints | Brandon Coleman busy in loss

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 22:20:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman posted six receptions for 47 yards on 10 targets in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Houston Texans. He saw increased work with WRs Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead resting.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman looked good last preseason, but he never did quite emerge as that special fantasy sleeper everyone envisioned. Now, Brandin Cooks is the top banana and a WR1 for fantasy owners, and Willie Snead and rookie Michael Thomas look to be special. It appears Coleman will be the No. 4 wideout in NOLA, and more of a WR5 for fantasy players in most formats.

Saints | Cooks, Snead sitting vs. Texans

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 16:48:23 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Saints | Willie Snead high on totem pole

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 20:06:43 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead had a big season in 2015, and the big question heading into 2016 is whether he loses snaps in two-receiver sets to WR Michael Thomas or another player. Beat writer Nick Underhill feels if Snead gets the same opportunities as last season he could have an even better season.

Fantasy Tip: Snead was just shy of 1,000 yards last season, and was a legitimate WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in most formats down the stretch.

Saints | Drew Brees confident in young receivers

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 09:19:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has confidence in his young corps of wide receivers led by WR Brandin Cooks and WR Willie Snead.

"I think when Drew is out there, he doesn't look at Brandin Cooks as a young player," head coach Sean Payton said. "I don't think he looks at Snead that way anymore because of the experience they've had. There's a combination there of guys that know what to do and how do they fit with the scheme that we're asking of them."

Fantasy Tip: Brees is 37, but he led the league in passing yards last season and completed 68.3% of his passes. The 32 touchdowns limited his output some, but that could increase as the experience with this group increases. Cooks has the ability of a WR1 in fantasy, but he's probably better served as a WR2. Snead amassed 984 yards and three scores last year and is a serviceable WR3. Brandon Coleman is a breakout candidate as a WR4. As for Brees, he's just below the elite tier of fantasy QBs, but he should be one of the first options after the top three are gone.

Saints | Big step coming for Willie Snead?

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:22:30 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Snead really stepped up last year and barely missed 1,000 yards. If he can maintain his status as the Saints' No. 2 wide receiver and improve on last year's numbers, then he can achieve WR3 status in 2016.

Saints | Willie Snead misses 1,000 yards

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:42:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead just missed the 1,000-yard mark Sunday, Jan. 3, in a 20-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Snead needed 51 yards to make the mark, but he finished with three catches and 35 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was a very nice season for Snead, who should be among the top receivers on the Saints roster in 2016. Because he hasn't compiled several seasons of this, Snead will likely be a middle-round candidate for drafting.

Saints | Ten grabs for Willie Snead

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 22:52:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted 10 receptions for 76 yards in the Week 15 game against the Detroit Lions. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Snead has 17 receptions for 198 yards over the past two games, and he has four or more receptions in three straight and 10 of the past 12 games. He is a solid low-end WR2 or flex FantasyScore option moving forward.

Saints | Willie Snead burns Buccaneers

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 17:05:50 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: After a couple of poor outings, Snead righted the ship with his second 100-yard game of the year. He has carved out a solid role in the Saints' passing attack, and he is worth a look at FantasyScore against favorable matchups.

Saints | Willie Snead, Marques Colston probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 14:47:13 -0800

New Orleans Saints WRs Willie Snead (calf) and Marques Colston (non-injury) are both listed as probable against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14. Snead was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 11, while Colston was a full participant.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints should have to throw often in what's expected to be a high-scoring affair. Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) missed last week and had cooled off before that, but he's still more attractive as a sleeper pick than Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap), who hasn't had more than three catches in a game since Nov. 1.

Saints | Willie Snead feeling better

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 16:04:03 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: Brandin Cooks suffered a concussion in practice Thursday and is now doubtful against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That puts Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap), Coleman ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Marques Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in prime sleeper territory. Snead is your most attractive as a value pick, but Coleman and Colston could also return huge profit.
