Saints' Willie Snead: Four catches for 47 yards

Snead made four catches on seven targets for 47 yards in Sunday's win against the Panthers.

The bye week gave Snead a chance to get healthy and he played 51 of the Saints' 73 offensive snaps (70 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Meanwhile, Michael Thomas once again saw his playing time increase (52 snaps) and had five catches for 78 yards and a touchdown. The Saints play a lot of three receiver sets, so both Snead and Thomas should continue to have value. However, quarterback Drew Brees is known to spread the ball around -- he completed passes to ten different players against the Panthers -- and the rookie Thomas is unquestionably the more dynamic playmaker and red zone threat. Snead is worth owning in most leagues, but receivers Brandin Cooks and Thomas will probably be the better fantasy options most weeks.
