2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Expected to improve in Year 2

Head coach Sean Payton suggested Smith is primed to "take a big step in his development," The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
ANALYSIS
It's probably just coachspeak, but the Saints have yet to add a receiver this offseason save for tight end Jared Cook. The 2018 third-round pick put together a solid rookie campaign, tallying 28 receptions and 427 receiving yards along with five touchdowns, proving to be a viable red-zone threat when Drew Brees and company took to the air (Smith was second behind Michael Thomas in receiving touchdowns). It's quite possible Smith could wind up jumping Tedd Gin Jr. on the depth chart depending on how the former improves during his first full offseason, but that'll depend largely on how the Saints choose to build out their receiving corps in the coming months.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.
