Willie Snead, WR, Baltimore Ravens
Snead had seven catches for 60 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, and he now has more than 50 yards or a touchdown (49 yards in that game) five times in six games so far this season with a 75 percent catch rate over the last three contests (18 catches on 24 targets).
There’s a revenge game angle for Snead against the New Orleans Saints in Week 7, but they also allowed the most fantasy points to wide receivers (ESPN PPR scoring) going into their Week 6 bye. That included the most yards, the third-most receptions and tied for the most touchdowns to the position over the first five weeks. After that Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders stand out as favorable for Snead.
Snead is slipping under the radar as a fantasy asset. With some loaded up bye weeks coming, he’s lined up to be a WR3 or flex in PPR leagues over the next few games.
