It wasn’t long ago that Willie Snead was considered one of the NFL’s up-incoming deep threats on a fantastic New Orleans Saints offense. Following an injury plagued 2017, Snead found himself out of New Orleans and looking for work. Baltimore singed Snead to an offer sheet, which the Saints declined to match, and now he’s a Raven.
Maybe Snead isn’t the brand name Michael Crabtree is, but he could prove to be just as, if not more, valuable in Fantasy Football for a much cheaper cost. As previously mentioned, Snead is a deep threat who can extend the field and make the big-play, something Baltimore’s offense has seriously lacked. Snead, aside from a healthy John Brown, is the team’s best option for a field-stretching nightmare and could help to re-balance an offense that has been so inadequate for years now.
Willie Snead simply brings an element to the Ravens offense that the team is in dire need of. Demand for this kind of threat is drastically needed and Snead can do the job at a high enough level to justify a late-round flier in deep Fantasy Football leagues.
If Snead can replicate some of the success he found during his stint with the Saints, there’s plenty of reason to like him as a spot-starter for the 2018 season. Snead will likely be an up-and-down producer on a week-to-week basis, but 800+ receiving yards and a few long touchdown will go a long ways.
