Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Like most rookie TE's, Fant wasn't very productive as a rookie but when given the opportunity, he showed legitimate breakout talent. Now, as he enters year two in the NFL, expect him to be more involved in the offense, especially in the red-zone.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
How is Noah Fant's ADP as high as TE8 on some sites?! Stop it right now! Do not consider taking him in the 6th or 7th round, wait until the double digit rounds and then you can consider him for his round 1 streaming appeal. Fant is a very talented player but Drew Lock doesn't want to give him the ball. Now the Broncos have added Jeudy, Hamler, Gordon and Albert O but Fant's going above Higbee? This has got to stop. He's a streaming TE, dynasty stash, and team name inspiration, that's where the hype train should end.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
This comes down to there being simply too many mouths to fee in Denver. Do we think they're suddenly going to let Drew Lock throw the ball 600-plus times? Not with Vic Fangio as they coach, they aren't. When you have Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, Melvin Gordon, and Phillip Lindsay as your skill-position corps, it's going to be tough seeing consistent targets. He's going to flash and have big games, but won't be consistent enough for an every-week option.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
Fant was a great streaming option in a few matchups last season, but he certainly has more competition for targets now in Denver this season. Fant has the talent to be a true fantasy star, but he may just not see enough target volume to be a consistent option week in and week out. He should finish towards the TE1 range, but it might just be on the back of a few games here or there.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.

 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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Fant had 550 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns in his rookie campaign, despite playing with 3 starting quarterbacks. He could be a TE1 sleeper in 2020, if QB Drew Lock can stay healthy.
