Willie Snead fantasy outlook: Sit him.

You just never know with a guy like Snead. The thing is, he’s heavily involved in the offense every week. The question is whether or not that amounts to fantasy value. 

And more often than not, it doesn’t.

I think the core of why I don’t like Snead in fantasy is about risk-reward. Snead’s floor is obviously very low. But his cieling isn’t even that high. He’s entirely touchdown dependent, and with so many weapons on the offense he just doesn’t warrant a start based on touchdowns. He doesn’t get enough. 

Brees will always look his way on third downs. And with Josh Hill likely done for the year, Snead will feature in a sort of TE-lite role. But he’s not going to put up huge yardage, and unless he finds the endzone his value is too low.

Don’t start. I’d think about dropping.
