  • Patriots' Jonnu Smith: Four catches versus Ravens

    Smith was on the field for 32 of a possible 66 snaps on offense in Sunday's 37-26 loss to the Ravens, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Though out-snapped by Hunter Henry (46), Smith was the more productive of the two tight ends Week 3, catching all four of his targets for 25 yards, while Henry hauled in his only target for eight yards. Looking ahead, Smith continues to profile as a hit-or-miss fantasy option, considering he's in a timeshare and that Patriots' starting quarterback Mac Jones appears poised to miss time with an ankle injury.

  • Patriots' Jonnu Smith: Three targets in Week 2

    Smith was on the field for 39 of a possible 68 snaps on offense in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Steelers, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    After hauling in three of his four targets for 33 yards in Week 1, Smith was held without a catch (on three targets) Sunday. Fellow tight end Hunter Henry (34 snaps, one target) also went without a catch in the contest. Though both players no doubt will have weeks where they are more involved in the offense, a continuing timeshare with Henry makes Smith a hit-or-miss fantasy option ahead of the team's Week 3 contest against the Ravens.

  • Patriots' Jonnu Smith: Catches three passes in Week 1

    Smith was on the field for 39 of a possible 57 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Dolphins, en route catching three of his four targets for 33 yards, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Given that the Patriots currently aren't rostering a fullback, the team figures to feature plenty of two-tight end sets this coming season, as evidenced by the fact that Hunter Henry (two catches for 20 yards) logged 44 snaps Week 1. With that in mind, both Smith and Henry should see steady playing time in the weeks ahead, but with a TE timeshare in play, Smith is going to be a hit-or-miss fantasy option.

  • Patriots' Jonnu Smith: Contract restructured

    The Patriots and Smith agreed Friday to convert $7.97 million of his base salary into a signing bonus, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    New England frees up $5.31 million in salary cap for 2022 with the move. Smith is heading into his second season with the Patriots, and he's primed to once again form a duo at tight end with Hunter Henry. Last season, Henry set the pace at the position with 75 targets as opposed to Smith's 45, but the team could employ more two-TE sets in 2022 now that there isn't a true fullback on the roster.

  • Patriots' Jonnu Smith: One catch in preseason finale

    Smith caught his only target for five yards in the Patriots' 23-6 preseason loss to the Raiders on Friday night.

    Smith and fellow tight end Hunter Henry both logged 16 snaps in the team's preseason finale, with New England's depth options seeing extended action. However, once the regular season starts, Henry and Smith are in line to form a 1-2 TE combo for the team. In that context, Smith figures to log a steady share of snaps in 2022, but as long as both players are available, Smith's target volume could be somewhat sporadic.

  • Patriots' Jonnu Smith: Logs 16 snaps Friday

    Smith logged 16 snaps on offense in Friday's 20-10 preseason win over the Panthers, per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com.

    Smith, who was listed in the starting lineup along with fellow tight end Devin Asiasi, didn't record a target in the contest during his abbreviated time on the field, but as Week 1 approaches, he's expected to see his share of looks from QB Mac Jones, while being part of a 1-2 TE combo that will also feature Hunter Henry, who sat out Friday's contest with an undisclosed injury. In his first campaign with the Patriots after signing a four-year, $50 million deal last March, Smith finished with 28 catches (on 45 targets) for 294 yards and a touchdown, but Evan Lazard of the Patriots' official site, among others, has noted that the 6-foot-3, 248-pounder has turned in a solid training camp, which could foreshadow something of a bounce-back effort for Smith this coming season.
