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
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.

Week 6 vs. Detroit Lions
Coby Fleener caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Saints’ Week 4 win over the Dolphins in London. Despite Willie Snead sidelined with a hamstring injury and Josh Hill forced out of the game due to a concussion, Fleener still wasn’t a big part of the game. Ranked as our TE12 for Week 6, Fleener is a risky, low-end TE2 for Sunday’s matchup with the Lions. At least the matchup is good on paper, as Detroit ranks as fantasy’s No. 26 defense against tight ends.
