2018 Fantasy Outlook
Ironically drawing Delanie Walker comparisons during the pre-draft process in 2017, Smith was ultimately selected by Tennessee in the third round of the draft to play second-fiddle to the 13-year vet. The Florida State product ended up seeing consistent playing time in that role, faring well as both a blocker and receiver. However, with Walker still heading the depth chart, there doesn't appear to be much room for growth for Smith in 2018. That could change if Walker deals with any injuries, but Smith's mentor hasn't missed more than one game in any of his past seven seasons. Read Past Outlooks

Knee
December 7, 2018
Smith (knee) was diagnosed Friday with a season-ending MCL injury, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The report doesn't specify if a playoff run would change the outlook; it's within the realm of possibility Smith could be ready for the postseason, given the recovery timetable of 2-to-4 weeks that often accompanies MCL injuries. With Smith sidelined for at least the remainder of the regular season, Tennessee will turn to some combination of Anthony Firkser, Luke Stocker and MyCole Pruitt at tight end. Stocker led the group with 39 snaps in Sunday's 31-9 win over the Jaguars, but Firkser is far more likely to contribute in the passing game, boasting 16 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown on just 16 targets this year.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Smith is expected to work as the No. 2 tight end behind Delanie Walker from the get-go, as Anthony Fasano's departure leaves just 2014 second-round bust Jace Amaro and blocking specialist Phillip Supernaw to challenge him for that spot. The rookie third-rounder out of Florida International is already a more complete player than either of those options, and is positioned to make an immediate impact for a team that used multiple tight end formations at an above-average clip last season.
