RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Smith's willingness to do whatever the Cowboys ask of him -- whether it's convert to fullback, play special teams, or act as a cheerleader for his brother Jaylon's rehab from knee surgery -- kept him on the roster last season, but only one touch (a four-yard reception) in seven games gives a clear idea of his fantasy upside. He may fill a depth role again in 2017, but that's his ceiling.

2016

The older brother of 2016 second round pick Jaylon Smith, Rod played in one game with the Seahawks as a rookie before being cut and catching on with the Cowboys for the remainder of last season as primarily a special teams player. Converted to fullback in the offseason due to his size and willingness to lay a hit, Smith could see plenty of snaps in 2016 if he can win a starting role at that position but his touches would remain very limited as he's tasked with opening holes for Ezekiel Elliott and keeping Tony Romo upright rather than getting yards on his own.

2015

An undrafted free agent out of Ohio State, Smith has no chance of making the roster. His best hope is the practice squad, and that might not even happen.
