Willie Snead by the numbers




Among the 46 wide receivers with 100 or more targets, Willie Snead was fifth in “Success Rate” and 16th in “Missed Yards Per Attempt.” These numbers indicate Snead was able to acquire enough yards each play to grade as the fifth-most “Successful” receiver in the league. When the play wasn’t “Successful”, he only missed by 2.1 yards, 16th-best in the league. It’s not always safe to rely on a player retaining his efficiency from season to season, but Snead is proving to be an exception.

Man he's gonna have s big year. He's going to really benefit from Cooks' departure.

Also interesting to see who the WRs that make the 53 besides MT, Snead and Ginn.

It is amazing how much Drew Brees can help just about any WR... still... Snead is a damn good WR.

Isn't he yet another Cleveland reject? What's going on up there where they can't evaluate WR talent?

If I remember correctly, he was in the exact same situation as Lance Moore. Undrafted and then placed on their practice squad.

Re: Willie Snead by the numbers

Notable stat worth mentioning on Snead :

Percentage of receiver targets 3rd and 6 or greater:

Snead 39%
Thomas 23%
Cooks 21%
Coleman 12%
Lewis 5%.

BTW, he is only 24 & still hungry. Keep feeding him

Three Saints in the top 16. I'm going to go out on a limb and say QB has a great deal of importance here.

Remove the WR from your sentence. They don't fare much better with QB's.
