Smith tallied six tackles in the Bears' Week 17 win over the Vikings, and he ended the campaign with 122 tackles, five sacks and an interception. Smith started a bit slowly after holding out and fighting through a hamstring injury, but after the Bears' Week 5 bye, he quickly proved that he was the elite player the team expected to see after investing a top-10 pick on him in the 2018 draft. He'll enter the second year of his rookie deal in 2019, and fantasy owners should expect him to be develop into a star in both a real-world football sense and as an IDP asset.
Smith recorded a sack and nine tackles in the Bears' 14-9 win over the 49ers. Smith has tallied at least nine tackles in four of his last five games which has given him a fantastic weekly floor, and the five sacks he's added give him an excellent weekly ceiling.
Smith tallied 10 tackles in Chicago's Week 15 victory over the Packers. The rookie has been a superstar since the Bears' Week 5 bye, as he's reached double-digit tackles six times while adding three sacks and an interception. He'll continue to be a weekly auto-start IDP with elite upside.
Smith intercepted a pass while adding six tackles in Chicago's 15-6 win over the Rams on Sunday. Even though Smith's six tackles represented his lowest total in six weeks, he continued to be a stellar IDP performer by picking off a Jared Goff pass. Even as a rookie, he's become an elite fantasy option who still has room to improve.
Smith notched a sack and 11 tackles in the Bears' 23-16 victory over the Lions. As he's done for much of the last month, Smith was making tackles all over the field, including dragging down Kenny Golladay after a long reception on his way to posting double-digit stops for the third time in four games. He also sacked Matthew Stafford -- giving him three sacks in his last six contests -- and it looks like the rookie has emerged as a high-level IDP.
