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

Clear path to starting role

Smith seems poised to start at wide receiver in 2021, Katherine Terrell of the Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
After releasing incumbent No. 2 wideout Emmanuel Sanders this offseason, New Orleans surprised some people by ignoring wide receivers during the early rounds of last weekend's NFL Draft. By instead waiting until the seventh round to merely add Kawaan Baker out of South Alabama, the Saints appear content with Smith as the second option behind Michael Thomas while a slew of undrafted holdovers (Juwan Johnson, Deonte Harris, Lil'Jordan Humphrey) duke it out for tertiary roles. However, potential fantasy investors will need to keep tabs on who will be throwing Smith passes this fall, as the speedster figures to have a much different outlook with the strong-armed Jameis Winston (who tossed Smith a 56-yard bomb in Week 17 of last season) under center than he would with dual-threat quarterback Taysom Hill.

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.
