Willie Snead injury update: Saints WR questionable vs. Chargers

New Orleans could have their big-play receiver back in San Diego this week.

The New Orleans Saints are listing Willie Snead as questionable to face the San Diego Chargers.

Snead suffered a toe injury in Week 2 that sidelined him for Week 3. He was limited in practice all week, so he should be a true game-time decision. Even with the Saints having a deep group of pass-catchers, Snead is a must-start if he is healthy enough to play.

Snead was off to a hot start after catching 14 passes for 226 yards and two scores in his first two games. He was targeted 17 times, a very high rate for just a two-game stretch.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Snead as the 28th-best receiver in Week 4. He is going against a Chargers defense ranked 30th in passing yards allowed per game.

If Snead is active, keep him in your starting lineup. His upside in this offense is at an all-time high, especially with New Orleans frequently passing while playing from behind.
