Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Jonnu Smith was everyone's favorite breakout candidate last year and even with the Titans playing great football, Smith was rarely involved. He finished the season with only 35 receptions, 439 yards, and three TDs. He still has the talent to be a viable fantasy TE, but I have to see it before I trust him as my weekly starter. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
The Titans were extraordinarily efficient in 2019, yet Jonnu Smith remained barely involved in the offence as Derrick Henry, Ryan Tannehill and A.J. Brown became fantasy studs. If TE19 is the best Smith can manage when everything went right, it's very hard to see him having such a bump that he jumps to fantasy prominence. He's not worth drafting in 2020 in the majority of leagues.I love the upside for Laviska Shenault in an offence where four players received 90 targets or more last season. The expectation that the Jags a likely to pass even more in 2020 is also good news, but there's a catch. It's very possible that given the shortened pre-season, Chris Conley will maintain the starting role for at least part of the season. That would make Shenault a wait-and-see prospect but that's OK. He's a guy you can add to the end of your bench knowing you can easily drop him if things look ugly after week 1.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Many compared Smith to someone like Delanie Walker back when he was drafted in 2017. We saw shades of that and even heard Bill Belichick give him props as one of the top tight ends in the league prior to their playoff matchup. Still, he's going to need more than 3-5 targets per game to get into the TE1 conversation. Despite Walker going down for the year, Smith saw more than five targets just twice all season and finished with 44 on the year. With the offense still projected for less than 500 pass attempts, it'll be difficult for Smith to truly break out. He should be considered a strong streamer in good matchups. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
If you're looking for a player who's going to be a steal in the later rounds of your draft, look no further than Smith. He should easily be second on this team in targets and he has the talent and athleticism to make it count. If you don't get the top two or three options at the tight end position, it's my personal recommendation to wait it out and snag Smith in the later rounds.Laviska Shenault is a polarizing prospect, but he has the draft capital and landing spot to make an impact for fantasy football. While I'm not a fan of his long-term outlook due to injury concerns, he'll have weeks of being fantasy relevant. I highly doubt he ever finishes inside the Top-36 WRs in a season though with DJ Chark and Dede Westbrook still on the roster. Shenault will most likely be given schemed touches to start out his career.

All you have to do is follow the bread crumbs to see that Jonnu Smith is the next big time TE in dynasty. -- @AnOutragedJew 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Steadily increased his production over his first 3 years, while sitting behind Delanie Walker. He might not have performed as well as we'd like with Walker having a limited role in 2019 but it was his first year truly starting. Showed enough flashes and is also another hyper athletic TE to target late, on a team that lacks weapons in the passing game aside from AJ Brown. Targeted on 21% of routes run in 2019. ADP of TE17 in redraft. Walker and his 31 TE targets have left the building. 8th in yards per route run among TEs with a minimum of 40 targets. While not on the same level of production as Kittle, was just above him in % of YAC in 2019, 94th percentile burst score allows him to pull away after the catch 9th in YAC with half as much opportunity to produce it as the most of the guys ahead of him, which means he was 2nd in YAC/REC, only behind Noah Fant, and just ahead of George Kittle 7th in % of targets caught. So he is ready to make the most off potentially limited targets, by catching nearly 80% of them, and then has elite YAC ability when he does get it, on a team with underrated QB play, and The TE room finally all to himself? 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Smith is one of the more intriguing names to be outside of the TE1 range. He is one of the most efficient tight ends in the game, and has a clear road to targets at the position now that Delanie Walker is no longer in his way. The problem is that there aren't all that many targets to go around in Tennessee, and Smith's targets have rarely come around the end zone. If that changes, then he's certainly got a shot at being fantasy-relevant. For now, however, he should be drafted as a TE1 only in 15-team leagues or larger or those that reward bonus points for tight ends.
