  • Giants' Rod Smith: Staying within NFC East
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After luring Golden Tate away from the Eagles, the Giants have now poached another player from a division rival in Smith. Perhaps the fantastic outing Smith had against the Giants in 2017 -- when he racked up 160 total yards and two touchdowns as a member of the Cowboys -- left a strong impression because he has otherwise underwhelmed in a backup role, only averaging 2.9 yards per carry last season. In New York, he'll battle with Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins (pectoral) for the No. 2 job behind Saquon Barkley.

  • Rod Smith: Tries out for Bengals
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith worked out for the Bengals on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. An undrafted free agent in 2015, Smith has spent the last two seasons as Ezekiel Elliott's primary backup, turning 99 carries into 359 yards (3.6 YPC) and five touchdowns. On top of his contributions on the ground, Smith gathered in 28 of his 35 targets for 262 yards (7.5 YPT) and one more TD while playing a significant role on special teams. After the recent release of Mark Walton, the Bengals are in need of running back depth behind Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard, so Smith likely will get a long look due to his experience.

  • Rod Smith: May be replaced during draft
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cowboys may draft a replacement for Smith, who remains unsigned as an unrestricted free agent, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Smith had five touchdowns in a four-week span while Ezekiel Elliott served a suspension in 2017, but the 27-year-old managed just 44 carries for 127 yards (2.9 average) and one score in 2018. While he isn't anything special as far as backup running backs go, Smith contributed 522 snaps on special teams over the past two seasons. He should at least find an opportunity to compete for a roster spot, if not a No. 2 RB job. Another season in Dallas might make sense even if the team supplements its backfield during the draft, as the current depth chart is limited to Darius Jackson and Jordan Chunn behind Elliot.

  • Cowboys' Rod Smith: Inefficient in contract year
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith rushed for 127 yards and one touchdown on 44 carries over 16 games in 2018. He also caught nine of 12 targets for 60 yards. Smith was rarely much of a factor in the offensive gameplan outside of a lone spot start in Week 17 while filling in for a resting Ezekiel Elliott. His longest play went for just 14 yards, and his 2.2 YPC was among the least efficient in the league. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Cowboys move on when Smith becomes an unrestricted free agent at the beginning of the league year.

  • Cowboys' Rod Smith: Finds end zone in spot start
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith carried 12 times for 36 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 36-35 win over the Giants. He also caught two passes for an additional 14 yards. Smith started in place of the resting Ezekiel Elliott, finishing with double-digit carries for the second time in his NFL career. He averaged just 2.9 yards per carry, but he was able to salvage his day from a fantasy perspective with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the fourth quarter. With Elliott rested and ready to handle a heavy workload, Smith should play a minimal role during the team's wild-card game next weekend.
