2018 Fantasy Outlook
You're forgiven if you don't trust a rookie enough to valuate him this highly, but Smith is very likely the real deal, and Chicago didn't pick him eighth overall to phase him in slowly. Smith (6-1, 236) sometimes looks like a heat-seeking missile compared to the other 10 defenders, boasting plus-plus instincts and athleticism both. After running a 4.51 40 on the heels of a final season at Georgia with 137 tackles (14 for loss) and 6.5 sacks in 15 games, Smith is ready to hunt in the NFL. Read Past Outlooks

Finishes amazing rookie season
LBChicago Bears
December 31, 2018
Smith tallied six tackles in the Bears' Week 17 win over the Vikings, and he ended the campaign with 122 tackles, five sacks and an interception.
ANALYSIS
Smith started a bit slowly after holding out and fighting through a hamstring injury, but after the Bears' Week 5 bye, he quickly proved that he was the elite player the team expected to see after investing a top-10 pick on him in the 2018 draft. He'll enter the second year of his rookie deal in 2019, and fantasy owners should expect him to be develop into a star in both a real-world football sense and as an IDP asset.
