Overview: Willie Snead looks to be coming off another impressive year as he again contributes to the New Orleans Saints offense. In his third year with the Saints, it wouldn’t surprise me to see WIllie Snead IV as a breakout candidate. It just goes to show, if the term underrated was personified it would be Willie Snead IV.

When it comes to being incredibly talented in the slot, look no further than Mr. Snead. Willie Snead at the end of the day is a phenomenal wide receiver and is an absolutly underrated piece of this New Orleans Saints offense. I’d fully expect Snead to have a bigger role in this offense as the Saints WR2.

Fantasy Football Stats / Points By Year:

2015: 69 Receptions, 984 Yards, 3 Touchdowns – 116 Points

2016: 72 Receptions, 895 Yards, 4 Touchdowns – 121 Points

Tyler’s 2017 Projection: 85 Receptions, 1,050 Yards, 7 Touchdowns

Analysis: With the departure of WR Brandin Cooks, I fully expect WIllie Snead IV to have a much larger role in this Saints offense. Although the Saints signed WR Ted Ginn Jr. I see Snead as the Saints second option at the wide receiver position. In my opinion, I believe Willie Snead, if anyone, is primed to have a breakout year. Hence the large numbers.
