2020 Fantasy Outlook
The speedy wideout has been a big-play threat throughout his two-year career, though he's seen a very low-usage role in that span, grabbing just 46 of 69 targets. Even with the low volume, Smith has scored five touchdowns both years, making him a true boom-or-bust fantasy option. Now entering his third season, he faces even more competition for targets in the form of new addition Emmanuel Sanders. Smith is likely to be fifth in the pecking order at best, behind Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Sanders and Jared Cook. The emergence of Taysom Hill as a legitimate situational option in the passing game only hurts Smith's chances of achieving fantasy relevance in 2020. Read Past Outlooks

Donut in the receiving column

January 5, 2020
Smith failed to bring in his only target in the Saints' 26-20 overtime wild-card loss to the Vikings on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The boom-or-bust wideout busted in a big way in Sunday's loss, drawing only one target and ending with a goose egg in the receiving column. In his second year with New Orleans, Smith scored five times, matching that total from his rookie campaign. Despite the touchdowns, Smith failed to surpass 20 yards receiving six times in the regular season, including two games in which he was held without a catch. Smith played in just 11 games in 2019, and he'll look to get healthy and take the next step forward in his third year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Smith's rookie year was a success - to the extent one can be successful on only 44 targets. He averaged 15.3 YPC and 9.7 YPT, marks that would put him among the league's top receivers had he qualified. He also scored five times and had a 40-yard catch. At 6-2, 210, and running a 4.49 40, Smith has good size and above-average speed for a bigger wideout. He's also athletic - 130-inch broad jump, 37.5-inch vertical - and has a wide catch radius, providing a nice advantage over smaller defensive backs. The problem for Smith is the Saints, once the most prolific passing team in the league, have morphed into a balanced offense. That means fewer passes to go around, and with target-hog Michael Thomas, newly acquired tight end Jared Cook and pass-catching tailback Alvin Kamara accounting for most of Drew Brees' volume, Smith is probably no better than the team's fourth option. And keep in mind veteran speedster Ted Ginn is slated to be the team's primary field stretcher. On the bright side, Year 2 is when receivers often break out, coach Sean Payton expressed confidence in Smith this offseason, and Drew Brees' presence should ensure Smith will get the most out of whatever opportunities he sees.
Drafted by the Saints in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Smith consistently excelled in his three years at Central Florida. While not necessarily an elite athlete, the 6-2 receiver has the size and speed to play on the outside. A "late bloomer" who didn't start playing football full time until he was a junior in high school, Smith will likely begin the year behind Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Cameron Meredith on the depth chart, but the rookie receiver will have every opportunity to compete for snaps in a high-yield Saints offense.
