  • Saints' Willie Snead: Invisible yet again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Snead caught one pass on two targets for zero yards in Thursday night's loss to the Falcons. Snead played 22 of 52 offensive snaps (42 percent), which represents an increase over prior weeks. Still, Snead was unable to do much of anything with the additional playing time, failing to gain a yard on his only reception. It's been a lost year for a player many pegged to be the primary beneficiary of Brandin Cooks' offseason departure, and there are few signs that things will turn around in the season's final month.

  • Snead logged 36 percent of the offensive snaps in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Panthers, catching both of his targets for 31 yards. Snead had his best game of the season, but he's still merely serving as the No. 4 receiver in an offense that likes to lean on its running game. Even if he were to surpass Brandon Coleman and reclaim the No. 3 role, Snead probably wouldn't draw more than four or five targets per game.

  • Saints' Willie Snead: One catch in Week 12
    By RotoWire Staff

    Snead caught one pass on one target in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Snead's only grab came in the red zone, but he was dragged down a few yards short of the end zone on the play. Snead played only 19 of 57 offensive snaps (33 percent), so barring an injury to one of the Saints' top receivers, the Ball State product can likely be ignored in most fantasy leagues.

  • Saints' Willie Snead: Sees uptick in snaps
    By RotoWire Staff

    Snead played a season-high 36 offensive snaps in Sunday's 47-10 win over the Bills. Snead hasn't drawn a target the past three games, but his snap share has jumped from seven percent to 30 percent to a high point of 47 percent Sunday. His playing time mostly came at the expense of Brandon Coleman, who only logged 38 percent of the snaps in Sunday's blowout, after handling at least 50 percent each of the previous three weeks. Ted Ginn has hovered in the 50-70 percent range all season, while Michael Thomas has landed above 72 percent every week. Despite the increase in playing time, Snead has fallen out of the conversation in all but the very deepest of leagues. Snead does get a Week 11 matchup against a Washington defense that has struggled to defend slot receivers.

  • Saints' Willie Snead: Plays only four snaps
    By RotoWire Staff

    Snead played four offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Bears, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The total ranked fifth among Saints wide receivers, trailing Brandon Coleman (48), Michael Thomas (47), Ted Ginn (37) and Tommylee Lewis (10). Snead still has time to earn a significant role by the end of the season, but it probably won't happen Week 9 against Tampa Bay. He finished Sunday's win over the Bears without a target.
