From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 15): Snead has been a constant in the Ravens passing game and very reliable in PPR leagues. He could hit his peak against his old Saints team this week.

Week 7: vs New Orleans Saints

All WR vs NO

FBG says: Great matchup. Joe Flacco is making a great push to wipe his 2017 from memory. Like Alex Smith in Kansas City last year, the 33-year-old Flacco looks revitalized upon the addition of a dynamic first-round quarterback to the room. Through 6 games, he's posting the highest yardage of his career (298 per game) and enjoying his most efficient season since 2014. The key factor has been the return of his deep ball, which was once truly one of the best in the game. Armed with the explosive John Brown, who looks reborn himself after battle injuries and illness, Flacco is showing a willingness to air it out in search of splash plays. He and Brown have generated 20 yards or more on 8 of their 21 connections thus far, a dizzying rate that's keeping both in weekly fantasy relevance. The tight ends are staying involved, too, though their production is too spread out to trust. Rookie Mark Andrews has impressed, finding soft spots and moving through the open field; he could find himself on the radar at some point. While the New Orleans defense has tightened considerably on the run, it's slipped from its 2018 heights against the pass. Opposing quarterbacks average 313 yards against them, completing 71% of their throws along the way. It's worth noting that the play has been legitimately better over the last two games. They seem, for instance, to have found a worthy bookend for Cameron Jordan - rookie Marcus Davenport has produced two sacks, five quarterback hits, and plenty of peripheral pressure over 145 snaps. This is a gambling defense, though, one that lives and dies by its ball-hawking cornerbacks. If they're coming up with disruptions, this is a stingy matchup. But more often than not, they whiff, and that's all it takes to turn a decent day bad. They've already allowed 11 different players to produce 50 yards, and 3 have topped 145.

Snead made another catch running a slant and ran through contact after making the catch for 13 yards.

2018 Week 1 vs BUF (6 / 4 / 49 / 1 rec)
