Ihmir Smith-Marsette

24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Carolina Panthers
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Smith-Marsette has seen limited receiving work throughout his first three years in the NFL, recording just 14 receptions for 182 yards and two touchdowns during that time. Despite his lack of production through the air, the 24-year-old's explosiveness was on full display last season, as he returned a punt for a 79-yard touchdown and took eight carries for 74 yards and another score. Smith-Marsette likely will remain the Panthers' top punt returner in 2024, but under new head coach Dave Canales, he has a chance to see more offensive work, competing with Jonathan Mingo and Terrance Marshall for a depth role in the Carolina's wide receiver room.

The Panthers re-signed Smith-Marsette to a one-year contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Smith-Marsette wasn't tendered by the Panthers as a restricted free agent last week, but he's coming back to the team at a lower salary than the low tender. Across 17 games last season, Smith-Marsette recorded eight catches for 51 scoreless yards and returned an NFL-high 37 punts for 322 yards and one touchdown.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Smith-Marsette got some playing time late last season with several Vikings receivers absent and overall had five receptions (on six targets) for 116 yards and two touchdowns in eight appearances, including a 3-103-1 line Week 18. The 2021 fifth-round draft pick has above average speed but may need more time to develop. He'll battle K.J. Osborn and Bisi Johnson for the third and fourth receiver roles and could be in the mix for the punt return job on special teams.
Smith-Marsette, a 2021 fifth-round pick, will compete for the third or fourth receiver role in Minnesota this summer. He played both inside and outside receiver as a four-year starter at Iowa, and his 4.43 40 time indicates he has top-end speed and quickness after the catch. Smith-Marsette is a sleeper for a larger role because his speed could add a needed element to the Vikings' passing game.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Strong spring on offense
WRCarolina Panthers
July 11, 2024
Smith-Marsette stood out on offense during OTAs and minicamp, which could help him earn a prominent role in 2024, according to Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer.
ANALYSIS
Smith-Marsette's speed and versatility will likely earn him a role in new coach Dave Canales' offense if the 24-year-old wide receiver continues to impress on offense. He's a safe bet to make Carolina's roster, as Smith-Marsette is also a prominent special teams contributor, having returned a punt for a touchdown last season.
