| Willie Snead wasn't heralded when he came into the league as a rookie in 2015 but he's received at least 100 targets in each of his first two seasons as a pro. He will be one of several players tasked with replacing the production of the departed Brandin Cooks and that should encourage fantasy owners to bump him up their cheatsheet a few notches. A mere ten percent increase in production would make him a valuable WR3 most weeks on his way to his first 1,000 yard season. His 69 percent catch rate makes him more even more attractive in PPR formats. Where the floor appears to be his biggest asset, his ceiling isn't nearly as high. There are plenty options near the goal in New Orleans so his lack of touchdowns will prevent him from cracking the top 25 receivers despite playing in a fantasy friendly offense.

FFToday's Take: Coming off his suspension, Snead was inactive last week. He mentioned earlier in the week that he might not be fully integrated into the offense when he does step on the field. He should be probably be avoided in lineups if he does suit up.

Saints WR will sit out Week 4

FFToday's Take: Coming off suspension, the Saints will hold out Snead in Week 4 and the team has a bye in Week 5 meaning Snead won't see the field until Week 6. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr. and Brandon Coleman will be the top three receivers this week.

Returning after three-game suspension

FFToday's Take: As the third receiver on the depth chart last season, Snead saw less than five targets in a game only twice. Ted Ginn, Jr. hasn't done anything extraordinary in Snead's absence (9 catches for 121 yards and a score over three games) so it shouldn't take long before Snead reclaims a quality role within the offense.

Violating NFL policy on substances of abuse

|#Saints WR Willie Snead is suspended 3 games for violating NFL policy on substances of abuse, per @NFL. It was reduced from 4 (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This would explain why Ted Ginn Jr. has been running and operating as the No.2 wide receiver during portions of the pre-season. Snead's fantasy value takes a hit, but he will likely come at a bargain in drafts moving forward. Ginn and Coby Fleener get slight bumps.
