2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Ryan Smith in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a four-year, $2.93 million contract with the Buccaneers in May of 2016.
Officially activated
CBTampa Bay Buccaneers
October 5, 2019
Smith, who has completed his season-opening four-game suspension, was activated from the exempt list Saturday and is eligible to play versus the Saints on Sunday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.
The move also means Smith now officially takes up a spot on the 53-man roster, which led to linebacker Demone Harris being waived Saturday. Smith's biggest impact versus the Saints could well come on special teams, where he's been a fixture the last two seasons. He'll also slot into a reserve cornerback role and will look to build on the 102 career tackles, one interception, 11 defensed passes, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries he's accumulated over his first three seasons.

With a host of notable absences at key positions and one very important return from suspension, Week 16 offers no shortage of important fantasy headlines. Juan Carlos Blanco guides you through the injury landscape heading into a crucial Week 16.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
A 2016 fourth-round pick, Smith has found a way to not only stick on the roster, but actually play a prominent role. The North Carolina Central alum posted 62 tackles (51 solo), three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and five passes defensed over 15 games last season, initially entering the starting lineup due to Brent Grimes' shoulder injury and subsequently hanging on to a first-unit role after a right hamstring issue ended Vernon Hargreaves' season Week 10. With both players back in 2018, it remains to be seen exactly how Smith will be deployed. With Hargreaves having underachieved in his first two seasons, Smith could make a strong case for playing time during training camp and preseason, and at a minimum looks perfectly capable of staking a claim to the third cornerback spot.
