Irv Smith Jr. signs with Chiefs

The Chiefs have signed TE Irv Smith Jr. to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Smith operated as a backup with the Bengals last season and will join the Chiefs in the same role. The 25-year-old tallied 115 yards and one touchdown on 18 receptions in 12 games last season.

Irv Smith Jr. inactive Saturday for Week 16

Cincinnati Bengals TE Irv Smith Jr. is inactive for their Week 16 Saturday game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Smith being inactive comes as a surprise, as he is a healthy scratch. The fourth-year TE has struggled in 2023, only catching 18 passes in 12 games. He has also fallen behind in the TE rotation, seeing less than 25% of the snaps in his last two games. He is inactive alongside WR Ja'Marr Chase, HB Chris Evans, LB Devin Harper, C Trey Hill, OT D'Ante Smith and DT Travis Bell.

Irv Smith Jr. quiet in Week 12 loss

Irv Smith Jr. caught 2-of-2 targets for eight yards in the Bengals’ 16-10 loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Smith’s snap percentage has hovered between 33% and 39% over the last three weeks. With Tanner Hudson seeing more playing time, it appears that Smith is taking a back seat in the Bengals’ offense. Fantasy managers should avoid Smith for now.

Irv Smith Jr. held without a catch Thursday night

Irv Smith Jr. failed to come up with his only target in Thursday's 34-20 loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Smith led all Cincy TEs in snaps Thursday night, barely edging out Tanner Hudson 24 to 21. However, Hudson continues to get more looks in the passing game, as he now has 16 receptions compared to Smith's mere eight over the last four weeks. in other words, Smith is not even the TE to roster for fantasy purposes on his own team at present.

Irv Smith Jr. catches just one pass Sunday

Irv Smith Jr. hauled in his lone target for a six-yard reception during the Bengals' 30-27 loss to the Texans in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact

Even with Tee Higgins (hamstring) inactive, Smith could not carve out a significant role. To make matters worse, he was out-produced by fellow tight ends Drew Sample and Tanner Hudson. Smith is off the fantasy radar going forward.
