Saints WR Willie Snead plays minimal role in first week back

Monday, October 16, 2017, 2:32pm

Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

Willie Snead played just 21 of 71 offensive snaps (30 percent) and finished the game with one catch for 11 yards on three targets.

Now, there's no reason to think this will be the norm for Snead. Coaches wanted to see Sunday how he handled his workload after missing three games due to suspension and then a fourth with a lingering hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

The Saints didn't commit to Snead immediately returning to his feature role the story said. We felt it was best to take a wait and see approach with Snead before putting him in lineups. At this point, owners may want to continue to wait until the snaps number increase. The Saints were also focused on running the ball.

Scouting Report

Week 6 vs. Detroit Lions

Willie Snead was inactive for the Saints’ Week 4 matchup with the Dolphins in London due to a hamstring injury. Snead said earlier this week the team is working him back slowly. Not knowing what his role is going to be, it’s hard to trust Snead this week against a Lions defense rankED No. 9 against fantasy receivers. Snead is our WR36 for Week 6. View him as a WR4/5 only.
