Player Outlook
Smith may see his target share suffer due to the acquisition of A.J. Brown, but the attention Brown draws, and Smith's talent level, could make him a hyper-efficient option instead. Smith is worth a look starting in Round 7 of a PPR league as a borderline No. 3 wide receiver with plenty of upside. Last year Smith earned a team-high 21% target share on the most run-heavy team in the league. If the Eagles throw more, and Smith's efficiency spikes, he could match last year's numbers on less volume. The 23-year-old is more valuable in Dynasty leagues, where he ranks as a borderline No. 2 worth more to rebuilders than contenders.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Labeled day-to-day

    Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said Wednesday that Smith (groin) is day-to-day, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports. Smith remains sidelined due to a minor groin injury, but he's managed to resume handling rehab work off to the side. Sirianni also announced that the Eagles' starters will be on the field for one or two series during Friday's preseason opener against the Jets, but it remains to be seen if Smith will be cleared to suit up in time for that contest. When deemed healthy, Smith will rejoin A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert as Jalen Hurts' top receiving options.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Sits out with minor groin injury

    Smith will be held out of Thursday's practice with a groin injury, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports. Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the injury doesn't appear serious, as Smith joined his teammates on the field for pre-practice stretching. It's the first report of any injury issue for Smith this year, following a rookie campaign in which he played all 17 games and barely missed any practice time during the regular season. He did suffer an MCL sprain last August and a few minor injuries in college, but he's missed just two games total his last five seasons between Alabama and the NFL. The 23-year-old wideout has been surprisingly durable for someone unusually thin (6-0, 170) for his position, and he should continue growing as a player after a 916-yard rookie season. Target volume is a potential issue, however, as the Eagles had success with a run-heavy approach late last season and then traded for WR A.J. Brown in the offseason.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Tops depth chart along with Brown

    Following the recent NFL Draft, the Eagles' wide receiver depth chart will be topped by newcomer A.J. Brown along with Smith, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports. Brown, who the Eagles obtained from the Titans on the first night of the draft, is now slated to pair with Smith, who caught 64 of his 104 targets for 916 yards and five TDs in 17 games as a rookie after going 10th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. At 6-foot-1, 226 pounds, Brown adds a physical presence opposite Smith, who's listed at 6-foot, 170 pounds. The duo's fantasy upside hinges largely on how well they click with starting QB Jalen Hurts, but both Brown and Smith should at least see steady volume in 2022, given they clearly head a wideout corps that also rosters Quez Watkins, Zach Pascal, Jalen Reagor and Greg Ward.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Gets big help in receiving corps

    The Eagles hope Smith will be helped by the acquisition of A.J. Brown, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports. Smith is a smaller receiver at 6-foot, 170 pounds while Brown is much larger at 6-foot-6 and 340 pounds, and coach Nick Sirianni views the duo as complementary to one another. Brown's addition to the receiver room should at the very least draw defensive focus from the 2021 first-round pick as well as create more opportunity for the whole offense by lengthening drives. Quez Watkins, Zach Pascal, Jalen Reagor and Greg Ward will likely now function mostly as afterthoughts in what was a run-first offense in 2021.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Produces little with 11 targets

    Smith recorded four receptions on 11 targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 31-15 wild-card round loss to the Buccaneers. Smith finished second on the team with 11 targets, but he averaged only 5.5 yards per look on his way to a disappointing performance. Though his final line was uninspiring, Smith did turn in a strong second half, as he had only one reception on two targets through the first two quarters. Though it came in garbage time, Smith picked up chunk gains of 31 and 19 yards in the fourth quarter to account for the majority of his production. He'll now look toward his second season as a pro after a solid rookie campaign that was highlighted by 61 catches, 916 yards and five touchdowns across 17 games.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Sets rookie record

    Smith caught three of four targets for 41 yards in Saturday's 51-26 loss to the Cowboys. Smith was involved early on, enabling him to set the Eagles' rookie record for receiving yards in a season. The first-rounder's performance included a long grab of 25 yards on a heads-up play during Philadelphia's opening series, extending what became a touchdown drive. Fresh off his personal accomplishment, Smith will now set his sights on his first career playoff appearance next weekend.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Three catches in win

    Smith caught three of his six targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Washington. Smith's first catch of the day accounted for most of his yards as he caught Jalen Hurts' first pass attempt of the game for a 30-yard pickup. The rookie was pretty quiet after that but still was able to lead all Philadelphia wide receivers in receiving yards once again, trailing only Dallas Goedert (71 yards) among all pass catchers. Smith has a nice matchup on tap against the Cowboys in Week 18, but his playing time may be affected with both teams having clinched the playoffs already.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Scores heavily scrutinized TD

    Smith secured five of seven targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 34-10 win over the Giants on Sunday. Smith paced the Eagles in receptions and receiving yardage, with his production in each category also serving as his best since Week 9. The rookie's four-yard scoring grab in the latter portion of the third quarter was also the subject of two replays, with the latter review confirming the score after the first one seemed to nullify it. Smith is likely to again play a prominent role in a key Week 17 road showdown against Washington.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Three catches in win

    Smith brought in three of five targets for 40 yards in the Eagles' 27-17 win over Washington on Tuesday night. The speedster took a back seat in the air attack to tight end Dallas Goedert, who exploded for a season-high 135 receiving yards. Smith got 28 of his yards on one catch, but it was otherwise a quiet night for the talented rookie. Despite the untimely downturn Tuesday, Smith is still seemingly a poor candidate for a Week 16 benching on fantasy playoff rosters considering his home matchup against a Giants secondary that's played poorly on the road all season.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Eagles-Washington moved to Tuesday

    Smith and the Eagles will no longer play Washington on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. The two-day delay could also help Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle) get healthier, as he had been listed as questionable for the Week 15 contest before the game was postponed Friday. While Hurts was sidelined in the Eagles' Week 13 win over the Jets, Gardner Minshew filled in admirably at quarterback but didn't show much of a rapport with Smith, who finished with two receptions for 15 yards on four targets.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Held down again

    Smith recorded two receptions on four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets. Smith was limited by game script, as the Eagles took to the air only 25 times while playing with the lead for the majority of the contest. Even so, both Dallas Goedert and Kenneth Gainwell saw more targets than Smith, who has combined to post just four receptions on eight targets for 37 yards across his last two games. Smith will have the chance to regroup in an effort to return to his more productive ways as the Eagles head into their Week 14 bye.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Takes full reps Thursday

    Smith (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. According to Tim McManus of ESPN.com, Smith was spotted with a brace protecting the elbow he first hurt Week 9 against the Chargers, but neither that injury nor the non-COVID-19-related ailment that kept him out of Wednesday's walk-through will prevent him from playing Sunday against the Jets. In his return to practice, Smith took reps with the first-team offense with both backup Gardner Minshew and starter Jalen Hurts, who was limited for the second straight day due to a sore ankle. Barring a setback, Hurts still appears likely to give it a go this weekend, so Smith's outlook shouldn't change much from prior weeks.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Underused Sunday

    Smith caught two passes for 22 yards on four targets against the Giants on Sunday. Jalen Hurts struggled as a passer and took Smith down with him, yet both players should find a more welcoming matchup when the Eagles face the Jets in Week 13. Smith's disappointing numbers against the Giants mostly occurred because Hurts threw for only 129 yards and three interceptions on 31 attempts, but an outcome like that is far less likely versus New York.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Four grabs in win

    Smith brought in four of six targets for 61 yards in the Eagles' 40-29 win over the Saints on Sunday. Smith narrowly missed out on a touchdown grab in the left corner of the end zone late in the first half when he couldn't quite come down inbounds, and he otherwise put together a solid but unspectacular day. The rookie's production continues to be somewhat capped by quarterback Jalen Hurts' overall limitations as a passer, but he's now eclipsed 60 receiving yards in four of the last five games. Smith's Week 12 matchup takes him to New York, where he'll face a Giants secondary that's been much better at home than the road this season.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Full practice Thursday

    Smith (elbow) practiced in full Thursday. After one session with a cap on his reps due to an elbow issue, Smith managed to log all individual and team work Thursday. With his health not in question, he's again poised to serve as the Eagles' No. 1 wide receiver Sunday against a Broncos defense that has allowed 162.8 total yards per game and nine touchdowns to the position in nine contests this season.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Limited with elbow injury

    Smith was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to an elbow injury, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports. Smith should be able to play through the issue Sunday in Denver, after he submitted a 5-116-1 receiving line in the Eagles' Week 9 loss to the Chargers. He's locked in as Philly's top wide receiver by a wide margin, but there's some cause for concern with just nine targets over the past two weeks. The Eagles have quickly shifted from a pass-heavy to run-heavy approach, albeit with a lot of help from their matchups.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Big effort in loss

    Smith caught five of six targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chargers. While the rookie didn't see big volume, Smith still put together a huge performance as the only receiving option of note for the Eagles. It's his second career game with 100-plus yards, while the TD was his first since Week 1. He'll look to keep building momentum in a Week 10 tilt against the Broncos.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Puts headache behind him

    Smith (headache) was a full practice participant Thursday. Smith sat out Wednesday due to a headache, which ultimately wasn't serious, as indicated by his bump in activity level. With his status now not in question for Week 8, he'll prepare to face a Lions defense Sunday that has allowed an NFL-worst 10.8 yards per target to wide receivers this season.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Not at practice

    Smith isn't present for the start of Wednesday's practice, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports. The Eagles will release their first Week 8 injury report later Wednesday, when it will be known whether the wideout is dealing with an injury or absent from practice due to a personal issue or illness. Smith and the Eagles draw a friendly Week 8 road matchup with the Lions.

  • Eagles' DeVonta Smith: Two catches in loss

    Smith secured two of four targets for 31 yards in the Eagles' 28-22 loss to the Buccaneers on Thursday night. Despite the Buccaneers playing with a short-handed secondary that was further depleted when Richard Sherman was forced from the contest with a hamstring injury, Smith couldn't make a significant impact on a night when the entire Eagles passing attack underwhelmed. The speedy rookie did record his fourth catch of over 20 yards on the season, but his total tally on the night was a considerable disappointment after Smith had turned in a 14-199 effort on 19 targets over his previous two games. Smith will look to bounce back against the Raiders in Week 7 road battle a week from Sunday.
