Willie Snead IV
WR - LV
Week 3 Outlook
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders are signing WR Willie Snead IV to a one-year contract.
Las Vegas lost Nelson Agholor to New England but they also signed John Brown. Additionally, Henry Ruggs III, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards are still around. It's shaping up as a situation to avoid for fantasy purposes.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Raiders are meeting with WR Willie Snead IV.
The potential remake of the Las Vegas WR corps continues as they host Snead. The Raiders have already signed John Brown, re-signed Zay Jones, while cutting Tyrell Williams and losing Nelson Agholor in free agency. In 2020, Snead, 28-years old, played in 13 games and totaled 33 receptions for 432 yards and three TD's. If signed, the veteran WR would provide some needed experience and depth.
Willie Snead IV, who has been battling an ankle injury, will not play in Week 17's matchup against the Bengals.
Snead IV has been a reliable target for Lamar Jackson this year, although not an especially eye-popping fantasy player. His absence should open up some additional opportunities for Marquise Brown though.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Willie Snead IV caught both of his targets for 24 yards in a 27-13 win over the Giants in Week 16.
Snead was quiet in a game where the Ravens only completed 17 passes. The veteran wideout will not be a recommended fantasy option in Week 17 against the Bengals.
