Ted Ginn Fantasy News

Friday, September 29, 2017, 6:52pm

Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 4. This is a downgrade from earlier in the week, so Snead is in danger of missing Week 4. Brandon Coleman and Ted Ginn would stand to benefit.

Saints WR Willie Snead's three-game suspension was for a personal conduct violation that stemmed from an off-season DUI.

Related players: Ted Ginn, Brandon Coleman, Coby Fleener

Fantasy Impact:

Snead will certainly have fantasy value when he returns in Week 4, but this is a blow to his overall value heading into the final weekend of fantasy drafts. Ted Ginn and Brandon Coleman figure to benefit the most, though neither has much experience playing in the slot, where Snead played 43% of the time (per Player Profiler). Coby Fleener may also spend more time in the slot to help offset the loss of Snead in September. Ginn was already a great value in the 12th round; now he looks even better in the double-digit rounds.

Saints WR Willie Snead misses second-straight practice

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Willie Snead was among 11 players to not practice Tuesday as the team prepares for Thursday's preseason finale.

For Snead, it marked the second consecutive day he was not on the field for undisclosed reasons. Snead played in the third preseason game and totaled one catch for 4 yards on 21 offensive snaps.

Fantasy Impact:

We just posted a new item from ESPN where the author feels Ted Ginn may have passed Snead on the depth chart as the team's WR2. Obviously Snead missing practice isn't going to help the situation, but on top of that Snead apparently hasn't done a whole lot in camp to this point.

Saints Beat: WR Tedd Ginn pushing for WR2 spot

I pretty much expected Willie Snead to settle in as the New Orleans Saints' No. 2 receiver after they traded Brandin Cooks this offseason.

But as this summer has gone on, it's starting to look like veteran newcomer Ted Ginn Jr. might push him for that unofficial title -- or, better yet, that the Saints might not have anyone who is considered a No. 2 receiver behind Michael Thomas.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say the Saints love to spread the ball around. Snead has had a very quiet summer, with just three catches for 18 yards in a total of three preseason games. There are other hints - like Ginn being listed ahead of Snead on the Saints' unofficial depth chart and Snead playing deep into the fourth quarter of New Orleans' second preseason game.

So far, Saints WR Brandon Coleman looks the part. He's winning on short, intermediate and deep routes, and he's gaining yards after his catches. Backup quarterback Garrett Grayson labeled him the MVP of camp so far and said Coleman "looks like a totally different receiver."

Related players: Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, Willie Snead

Fantasy Impact:

With Michael Thomas and Willie Snead looking like the top-two guys, Coleman is also battling Ted Ginn for playing time. The story said if he continues to play well, the team will have to find ways to get him the ball, but it's looking like a crowded WR group right now.

Russini: WR Ted Ginn signing with the Saints

WR Ted Ginn is signing with the New Orleans Saints per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Ginn finished the season as the #48 WR (PPR) after finishing #33 the year before. Even with Kelvin Benjamin back, Ginn’s targets remained remarkably consistent; he saw 95 targets in 2016 after getting 97 targets in 2015. Still one of the fastest receivers in the league, Ginn is being brought to New Orleans to stretch the field since it looks like Brandin Cooks is on his way out of town. The Saints’ three starting receivers each saw at least 104 targets, so Ginn could post similar (or better) numbers in 2017, provided he enjoys a smooth transition.

Panthers WR Ted Ginn (not injury related) missed practice Friday. Ginn should be fine for Monday night. He’s more intriguing than Kelvin Benjamin since he’s fully healthy and is unlikely to draw Josh Norman in coverage.

Panthers WR Ted Ginn (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday.

Thursday, December 1, 2016, 6:10pm

Panthers WR Ted Ginn (not injury related) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. Ginn will be able to play against the Seahawks.

Coach Ron Rivera didn’t just say he wanted three series out of Panthers QB Cam Newton and the first-team offense. He said he wanted three "good" series. Whether that means Rivera is willing to risk the NFL MVP and other starters past that remains to be seen.

The starters typically don’t see extensive playing time until the third preseason game. Rivera didn’t expand on what he meant by "good," but you can bet he’ll want to see more out of the running game.

The Panthers rushed for only 81 yards in their preseason opener at Baltimore, and 39 of that total came from third-string quarterback Joe Webb (22) and starting wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. (17). Starting running back Jonathan Stewart didn’t play, so look for him to get a few carries. But most of the focus will be on second-year back Cameron Artis-Payne, who had only 10 yards on five carries against the Ravens.

Panthers still want to spread ball around

Wednesday, July 27, 2016, 9:13am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The question now is how the Carolina offense will look with the 6-foot-5 Kelvin Benjamin back in the mix with emerging star Devin Funchess, Ted Ginn Jr. and the rest of a group that overachieved in 2015.

There's no doubt that Benjamin will provide an upgrade. General manager Dave Gettleman said it’s like having an extra first-round draft pick.

Cam Newton grew as a quarterback when he was forced to spread the ball among a receiving corps that had no star. This camp could be about resisting the temptation to lean on Benjamin, which Newton often did in 2014, when the first-round pick out of Florida State had 73 catches for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

Banjamin is back in our rankings as a lower-end WR2. We still project a nice season for him with a 74-1,008-8.2 line. Based on ADP, it looks like Benjamin is going before he should in drafts, likely because owners speculate a little less spreading around of the ball. However, that doesn't appear to be the goal of the offense this season.
