Willie Snead fantasy outlook: Sit him.

Snead, Snead, Snead. I just can never seem to get my predictions right for this guy.

On the one hand, he’s as dangerous a slot receiver as you’ll find in the league. On the other, he’s more of a possession receiver than anything else. And yet he can also stretch the field down the seams.

I just can’t in good consciousness recommend the start. He’s too unpredictable. Cooks is a more consistent home run threat, and Thomas is a more consistent target. Brees absolutely loves to look Snead’s way on third down, but that makes up most of his action.

If you’re in need of a player, Snead does have a high ceiling. But his chances of reaching that ceiling aren’t great. He’s a FLEX option at best.
