Huddle Up: Smith has posted 11 receptions over the past four games and a total of just 85 yards across the past three. However, he has three scores in the last four outings and he remains a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Huddle Up: There is no question Smith has talent, but he is locked into Ted Ginn's old role as the deep threat in an offense in which he trails Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram in terms of priority. If defenses choose to play it safe and keep everything in front of them like Minnesota did in this game, Smith is going to struggle to pay off in fantasy. He'll be a high-upside, low-floor WR4 again in Week 9 when the Saints host the Los Angeles Rams.

Huddle Up: Sean Payton finally kicked off the training wheels and let Smith show what he can do, and he showed off his speed. His 62-yard touchdown was the score which sent Drew Brees over the hump for the NFL's all-time passing yardage record. Smith will be a hot property off of the waiver wire this week, and it's hard to imagine Smith falling back behind Ted Ginn when he returns from injury.

Huddle Up: Drew Brees' first reads will almost always be to Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara, but the athletic rookie does deserve more attention after only being targeted twice in two games. We know the Saints will be throwing plenty all season, making Smith a worthwhile pickup.

Huddle Up: With Michael Thomas being the only receiver locked into a position on the depth chart, there's a chance Smith works his way up the ladder to earn significant snaps at the onset of the season. That would mean tremendous value if the 2018 third-round draft pick is regularly lining up alongside Drew Brees. He's worth a late selection in fantasy drafts as a result.

Huddle Up: Smith has enjoyed a strong preseason, and Drew Brees has made plenty of receivers useful fantasy options over his career. Smith is worth picking up in dynasty formats at this point.

Huddle Up: It's only the preseason, but the rookie made a solid first impression. He has built some buzz in dynasty formats and is worth a flier late in rookie drafts.

Huddle Up: Drew Brees has made a lot of receivers relevant over the years, and Smith is worth a third-round flier in rookie drafts. He can be left alone in redraft leagues for now.

Huddle Up: Smith really improved his stock with a strong showing at the Senior Bowl. He is a deep threat who also showed well in the AAC Championship Game, rolling up six receptions for 161 yards and two scores. He is a strong receiver with long arms, and he has really stepped up on the biggest stage. Working with Drew Brees will really help him develop.
