Saints | Willie Snead inactive

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:18:48 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Saints | Willie Snead ruled out for Week 3

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:13:27 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Saints | Willie Snead questionable for Week 3

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 13:27:25 -0700

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.

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.

Saints | Willie Snead a game-time decision

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:26:26 -0700

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.

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.

Saints | Another missed practice for Willie Snead

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:09:33 -0700

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.

Saints | Drew Brees still confident in Coby Fleener

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 10:34:00 -0700

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.

Saints | Willie Snead sidelined

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 15:37:16 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

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.
