Smith caught three of four targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 45-42 overtime win over the Browns.
Smith had yet to be targeted all season heading into Week 4, but the backup tight end finally hauled in three passes while quarterback Derek Carr notched 58 attempts. Smith will continue to serve primarily as a blocker while Jared Cook retains his duty as the pass-catching tight end.
Smith was on the field for 22 offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Broncos, but he remains without a single target through the first two weeks of the regular season.
Smith continues to fill in as a blocker behind starting tight end Jared Cook, as the former has yet to see a single target from Derek Carr. Fellow backup TE Derek Carrier has recorded three receptions for 25 yards on four targets in two games.
Lee re-signed with the Raiders on a three-year contract Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of the Mercury News reports.
Just a day after Oakland signed fellow tight end Derek Carrier, the team brings back it's top blocking tight end from a season ago in Lee. Carrier also projects as a blocking specialist, so Jared Cook remains the Raiders' most legitimate receiving threat from the position.
Smith caught two passes on three targets for 16 yards in Monday's 19-10 loss to the Eagles.
Smith notched a season high with 44 snaps in Week 16 after fellow tight end Jared Cook had been limited earlier in the week by a wrist injury. Smith, who is used primarily as a blocker, could see additional targets in Week 17 as well if Cook were to suffer any sort of setback. Smith's ceiling remains severely limited, however, with him having caught just eight passes for 76 yards on 11 targets in 15 games this season.
