Fantasy Impact:

Smith was dominant during the 2020 season, earning first and second-team All-Pro selections. He totaled 139 tackles, 18 TFLs, seven pass deflections, four sacks, two interceptions, and a forced fumble across all 16 games to help lead Chicago to the postseason in 2020. Smith's presence in the middle helps anchor and lay the foundation to an elite defensive unit that is returning many of its pieces from a year ago, indicating another strong year for the Bears' defense in 2021.
