Smith's interception gives him two on the season. He's one of the better safeties in the NFL but he hasn't put up prolific numbers so far in 2018. He'll aim to maintain his momentum and slow down the Drew Brees-led Saints offense in Week 8.

Smith has now tied his career high for sacks in a season with 3.0 through just six games. The Vikings' defense has struggled a bit this year compared to years past, but Smith has continued to be a dominant force. He and the Vikings will look to stack victories as they take on the Jets in Week 7.
Smith posted five tackles (four solo), including a sack, and forced a fumble in Sunday's loss to Buffalo.
Smith has played like the top-flight safety he is through three weeks. His sack Sunday was his second of the year, meaning he's now tied for his second-highest season sack total of his career through only three games. He'll look to continue the strong play as the Vikings aim to notch a win against the Rams in Week 4.
Smith recorded 78 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 12 pass breakups and five interceptions over 16 games in 2017.
Smith captained a Vikings defense that allowed the fewest yards in the league while limiting opponents to a 25.2 percent conversion rate on third downs -- the lowest rate ever recorded since the stat was introduced in 1991, according to the Vikings' official site. Not only did he earn first-team All-Pro honors for his performance, Smith also finished as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded safety where his 36.0 overall grade was nearly twice as high as the second-ranked Adrian Amos (18.3). He remains under contract with Minnesota in 2018 and should be considered among the first handful of safeties to be considered in fantasy drafts.
