RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Cut by the Panthers and Browns in 2014, Snead, an undrafted free agent, was one of the more unlikely breakouts last year. Snead became Drew Brees' No. 2 target and excelled in the role, averaging 14.3 YPC and 9.7 YPT (5th). While he had only two catches of 40-plus yards, Snead hauled in 14 of 20 or more. At 5-11, 195, Snead isn't much of a red-zone target (only nine looks), and his 4.56 40 speed precludes many downfield plays. Consequently, he's not going to score often. The Saints added Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener this offseason, and top target Brandin Cooks isn't going anywhere, so Snead's ceiling is modest, especially in non-PPR leagues.

2015

Snead will compete for playing time on a crowded Saints' receiver depth chart. The second-year pro out of Ball State was cut twice in 2014 - once by the Browns during training camp and again in the fall from the Panthers' practice squad - but is likely to make the Saints' final roster this season. Snead isn't all that big or all that fast, but he catches everything thrown his way. With Kenny Stills in Miami, there's an opening for a player to emerge as the third wide receiver behind Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks, but Snead's path to playing time is unclear, with Brandon Coleman, Joseph Morgan, Josh Morgan, and Snead all battling for depth chart positioning and snaps.
