2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 123rd pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Smythe was selected by the Dolphins with the clear intention of being developed into a blocking specialist. Smythe made enough strides during his rookie season to carve out a rotational role during the last five weeks of the season, but the addition of Dwayne Allen, one of the league's best blocking tight ends, could notably limit the 23-year-old's snap count for 2019. Smythe will likely have to beat of Nick O'Leary and Clive Walford for what could be one roster spot. Read Past Outlooks

Held without a catch
TEMiami Dolphins
September 23, 2019
Smythe failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Cowboys.
ANALYSIS
Smythe played 40 snaps on offense (56 percent) but was mostly utilized as a blocker. He projects to play a similar role against the Chargers in Week 4.

Hidden Stat Line: NFL Week 3 Recap
28 days ago
Jerry Donabedian checks out Week 3's playing time trends and notes the Patriots are turning to a spread-out offense that bodes well for Josh Gordon and Phillip Dorsett.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Smythe is one of two rookie tight ends joining the Dolphins in 2018, along with red-zone weapon Mike Gesicki. With two draft picks spent on tight ends, Miami hopes to put an end to their series of failed experiments at the position since losing Charles Clay in 2015. One of the draft's top blocking specialists, Smythe fills a very different need at the position than Gesicki. Despite some praise for his route-running, Smythe caught only 28 passes during his college career. The fourth-rounder is set to compete with MarQueis Gray and Gavin Escobar for snaps at the in-line position, where Miami hopes he'll make a difference in run blocking and pass protection.
