Week 11 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Willie Snead hasn’t put up big numbers, but he’s quietly led the team in targets in each of his past two games. He’s now averaging 7.7 targets per game this year. Snead is still not producing at a high level – only one touchdown this season and no game over 60 yards receiving – but he’s getting looks and his playmaking ability makes him a threat to score anytime he touches the ball.
This week, Snead has some boom-bust potential in a great matchup against the Bengals, who allow 42.7 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receiver this year. Snead is super risky as the third option on the depth chart in an offense that’s trending downward, but his targets and matchup is interesting enough for swing-for-the-fences lineups this week.
