Smith caught four of five targets for 29 yards in Sunday's victory over the Giants. Smith was once again a distant third in targets behind Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery and still hasn't connected for one of the long bombs that have always been key to the seven-year veteran's fantasy relevance. While he remains a boom-or-bust wide receiver, the bet has to be on the "bust" side each week until he shows more of a rapport with his quarterback or one of the Eagles' primary pass catchers gets hurt.
Smith (illness) is listed as active Sunday against the Giants, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports. Entering the weekend with an illness, Smith was handed a questionable designation, but it won't stop him from at least suiting up in Week 3. He's reeled off three catches of 20-plus yards on the season thus far, leading to a 19.2 YPC.
Smith (illness) is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Smith was added to the injury report Friday because of the illness, and while he is officially listed as questionable, it's apparently not serious enough to hold him out.
Smith was added to Friday's injury report with an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. While it would be better if Smith had gotten sick earlier in the week, he should still have enough time to recover for Sunday's game. The Giants may be without top cornerback Janoris Jenkins (ankle), who likely will spend most of his time covering Alshon Jeffery if he's able to play. Assuming his own health checks out, it's as good of a week as any for Smith to sneak behind the defense for one of the long gains on which he's always made his living. He's accounted for just 13 percent of the Eagles' targets through two weeks.
Smith caught four of eight targets for 66 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. While he still saw fewer targets than Alshon Jeffery (12) and Zach Ertz (10), the Eagles made more of an effort to get Smith the ball in this game. However, the high target share was also partly attributable to Philadelphia's inability to get a running game going. The 28-year-old receiver remains hit-or-miss depending on whether he sees the end zone in a given week.
