DeVonta Smith
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Smith annihilated defenses last year for Alabama with an absurd 147-117-1,856-23 line, averaging 15.9 YPC and 12.6 YPT and winning the Heisman Trophy. He skipped the school's Pro Day due to a thumb injury, so we don't have an official 40 time, but apparently he ran a 4.49 in high school, fast but not elite. At 6-0, 170, Smith is slightly built for a receiver, something that could be an issue in the pros with more physical corners and coverage schemes. Nonetheless, the Eagles, needing receiving help, drafted him 10th overall. Smith could be the team's leader in targets right away, though his stiffest competition might be tight end Dallas Goedert rather than any of the team's other wideouts. Last year's 21st overall pick Jalen Reagor had a disappointing and injury-plagued rookie year, and the rest of the depth chart is filled with unestablished options with little pedigree. Smith even opened training camp with a spot on the first unit, but after a fast start, an MCL sprain at the end of July forced him to the sideline. The Eagles expect Smith to miss only 2-3 weeks, so he should be back for the regular-season opener even if he doesn't suit up this preseason. Read Past Outlooks

Makes little of seven targets
WRPhiladelphia Eagles
September 19, 2021
Smith recorded two receptions on seven targets for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the 49ers.
ANALYSIS
Smith was the favorite target of Jalen Hurts, but the pair didn't find the same connection they showcased in Week 1. The Eagles' offense struggled overall, with Quez Watkins being the primary member of the offense to post notable production. While it's a positive that Smith remained the top target in the offense, his down performance highlights the volatility that the Eagles' offense could experience throughout the season.
