Jaylen Smith
Wide ReceiverWR
Louisville Cardinals
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Louisville supporting cast didn't make the best showing during Lamar Jackson's career, but Smith was one exception as he averaged 10.6 yards per target over the last two years, nearly two more yards per attempt than Jackson's YPA. The loss of Jackson is a bummer, but new quarterback Jawon Pass appears substantial in his own right, so there's a real chance that the Louisville passing game takes only a slight step back. Whether Smith can hit 1,000 yards this year depends on how well he can hold off the surging tandem of Dez Fitzpatrick and Seth Dawkins. Read Past Outlooks

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Smith's production from last season won't bowl anyone over (27 catches for 599 yards and six touchdowns), but it was excellent considering it was on just 46 targets. It's worth noting that Smith had stress fracture surgery on his foot this offseason, but assuming health for Week 1, this should be a breakout year for the 6-4, 210-pound wideout. With Louisville replacing last year's receiving leaders in James Quick, Jamari Staples, and Cole Hikutini, Smith will get all the work he can handle in what should still be an explosive offense.
