Jackson will be on the WR2 radar against a Packers secondary that has been struggling in recent weeks.
Smith has basically been a boom / bust WR3 the second half of the season. The Texans have allowed the third most points to fantasy receivers this year, so he does have upside in a favorable matchup.
